Biography

Newbury (1999 – present)

Big Boss Man are a four piece band hailing from Newbury in Berkshire, and are the hottest news to come out of the area since the bypass got the go ahead. Their music is a hip Hammond hybrid of Pop, 60’s R’n’B/Latin/Soul and Funk. The band formed in early 1999, signing to Blow Up in the Autumn of the same year.

Having already played together in various bands and being old friends, the guys thought it made more than a little sense to put their heads together to form a suitably funked up outfit that reflected their shared love of original dance music flavours. Since then BBM have taken their infectious ramshackle road-show around Spain twice (selling out 500+ venues), and through Germany and Italy. They have played huge festivals in France, as well as being invited by Artemy Troitsky (Russia’s answer to John Peel) for a special one-off in Moscow. All of which have helped them earn their deserved reputation as the punks of Hammond funk!

The release of their debut Humanize album in 2001 was marked by a show at the opening of the “My Generation” H&M Fashion & Photography Exhibition in Stockholm, and since then BBM have built up a loyal following touring extensively in the UK, Europe and further afield.

In-between their hectic live schedule their debut LP Humanize provide the entire soundtrack to short film “Sweet” starring the Perrier award winning comedy duo The Mighty Boosh. The band were also featured as the live band in the nightclub sequences in the film, which has won a Turner Classic Film Award at the National Film Institute, an Empire film award, as well as being nominated for a BAFTA.
