BIG BOSS MAN  LIVE
PAUL TUNKIN RESIDENT DJ
As part of our Blow Up 20th Anniversary celebrations we're pleased to announce that Blow Up are coming to Hebden Bridge Trades for a one-off show with live guests Big Boss Man plus TBA!
Expect classic tracks from both Blow Up's past and present: from Brit Pop era favourites (the scene which the club helped kick-start way back in 1993 in Camden Town) to the current new Pop stylists putting the art back into pop . . . Brit Pop, Glam, Mod & New Wave colliding with 60's Soul, Beat, Garage, Funk, Ska, Swinging Soundtracks, Hammond Heavy Jazz, Easy Listening & Ye-Ye!
BIG BOSS MAN 
Big Boss Man return to Blow Up following the release of their fourth album The Last Man On Earth this September on Blow Up Records.
A hip hybrid of ’60s and ’70s drenched R&B, Funk, Latin, Jazz, Soul and Psych taking us on new sonic explorations. It's certainly not a straight Soul Jazz album - ‘Shot Down’ experiments with North West Garage/Frat, ‘Project No 6’ has the Sci-Fi squelch of a Radiophonic Workshop piece and hugely cinematic ‘Painted Rainbow’ features a bombastic femme vocals akin to The Rotary Connection.
Lead single ‘Aardvark' a jazz dance floor filler, received strong radio support from BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 2, including multiple spins by Craig Charles on his Funk & Soul Show, with additional plays from Gideon Coe, Tom Ravenscroft, Cerys Matthews, Chris Hawkins and Huey Morgan at the stations.
