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.
