BIG BOSS MAN Festival Warmup

Big Boss Man formed in 1999 when three long time friends Nass, Trev and Scott, got together for some Hammond heavy action. They released their album debut 'Humanize' (Blow Up) in 2001 which precipitated a wave of interest in the band, and was a clear definition of the BBM sound: a hip Hammond hybrid of 60's and 70's drenched R'n'B, Funk, Latin, Jazz, Soul and Pop. The album went on to be used exclusively as the soundtrack for the 2002 BAFTA nominated short film'Sweet' featuring The Mighty Boosh (Big Boss Man performing in the nightclub sequences in the film), as well as tracks appearing on numerous compilations. Party 7 from Humanize was featured in the Thierry Henry and Eric Cantona NIKE WORLDCUP worldwide advert in 2006 and subsequently released as a limited single. Their 2005 follow up 'Winner' (Blow Up) was produced by the band and Morgan Nicholls (The Streets / Muse / Gorillaz). Morgan (the son of Immediate Records' inhouse songwriter Billy Nicholls), had a studio choc-full of groovy stuff: The Who's Hammond, Steve Marriott's first guitar, Clavis and Wurlis, all of which were put to good use on the album which continued the trip from where Humanize left off - through 60's Funk, along the way taking in Bongo/Fuzz, Latin Soul, French Beat, Boogaloo and general Hammond/Moog mentalness everywhere else!
