Big Boss Man have been fusing 60s R’n’B, Soul, Latin, Funk and Bongo-Hammond-Fuzz since ’98.

They’ve released four studio albums, and eight 7” singles, and have appeared on countless compilations. The quartet’s explosive live shows are legendary, and they’ve been blasting stages since their earlier days in The Loafers, Skooby and Espadrille, amongst a few others.

As well as playing hundreds of concerts and festivals across the UK, Europe and beyond, Big Boss Man’s music may sound familiar to you, being regularly played on film and television, including Come Dine With Me, Strictly Come Dancing and I Used To Be Famous, and broadcast on BBC Radio, by presenters including Gideon Coe, Cerys Matthews and Craig Charles.

Not just that, but previous tracks have been used by Nike and The Mighty Boosh, and their official remix of Modfather Paul Weller’s single ‘The Bottle’ went straight in to the UK Top 20, and fast became a collector’s item.

‘Bossin’ Around’ has been simmering for some time! Ten years since their last studio album, and four 7” singles in-between, these twelve tracks are ready to unleash.

With guests providing trumpet, flute, saxophones and trombones, Big Boss Man have fused a mix of Soul-fuelled 60s R’n’B, Hammond Jazz, Latin and Mod Funk, and have almost gone back to their roots too!

Limited to 500 copies, this will be available via the label, the group and all very good record outlets.

Big Boss Man continue to make what the people call ‘proper’ music.
