This month’s postponed 100 Club gig with The Business and The Chisel will now take place on 21st May 2022.


We will no longer be playing the Ilfracombe Punk Festival in February due to work commitments. Apologies to all concerned.


We will support The Business at the 100 Club in London’s Oxford Street on 18th December. The Chisel are opening the Human Punk promoted show and there will be special guests as we celebrate the memory and legacy of Micky Fitz RIP.


Harder Than The Rest, the brutal new Harry Tyler novel by Garry Bushell with Craig Brackenridge, is on sale now. Please note: although Iron Maiden, the Rejects and the Business are mentioned in the book, the villainous band at the heart of the action are entirely fictional.

We are confirmed to play next year’s Rebellion Festival in August 2022.
