One of the main focuses of this podcast has been documenting Rochester/Buffalo/Syracuse Hardcore from 20-25 years ago. I've made it a point to cover newer bands and people as well, but I consider the aforementioned years to be some of my more formative years. My favorite Rochester Hardcore bands came along during these years, and I was lucky enough to see Bad Business develop behind the scenes from the beginning. One common theme of this interview is friendship. A lot of Rochester bands during this era were formed by close friends and Bad Business was definitely one of those bands. Before they were even a band, all of us were traveling together all over NY, PA, and other parts of the Northeast. In late 2001, Dan, Brandon, and Jeff decided to form a straight edge band. They asked Shawn to join as their vocalist and the band was off to the races. This interview chronicles the whole four years the band was together, from the first two shows in early 2002, until the last show and reunion in 2006 and 2007. We talk about their recordings, tours (and a few crazy stories from them), the Rochester scene, and how Bad Business ended up on the cover of Maximum Rock N Roll. I hope everyone enjoys this conversation as much as I did. https://www.patreon.com/EnterpriseHardcorePodcast https://www.instagram.com/enterprisehardcorepodcast https://www.facebook.com/EnterpriseHardcorePodcast https://mobile.twitter.com/podcasthardcore https://m.soundcloud.com/rochesterhardcorehistory --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/enterprise-hardcore-podcast/support
