Friday 26th February
BLOW UP at St. Moritz Club, London W1 (Map)
BIG BOSS MAN LIVE
PAUL TUNKIN RESIDENT DJ
Blow Up continues its Friday residency in Soho at the legendary St Moritz Club with the return of special live guests BIG BOSS MAN.
The basement club is one of the last 'original' venues in the West End, virtually unchanged since the 60s, and Blow Up kicked off it's new Friday night residency here last year.
Expect to hear 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 & indie stylists putting the art back into pop colliding with 60's Soul, Beat, Garage, Funk, Ska, Swinging Soundtracks, Hammond Heavy Jazz, Easy Listening & Ye-Ye! Brit Pop, Glam & Post Punk / New Wave will all be present and correct.

BIG BOSS MAN
Big Boss Man return to Blow Up following the release of their fourth album The Last Man On Earth on Blow Up Records. In 2015 they were invited in for a session with Cerys Matthews on BBC 6 Music, playing numerous dates around the UK & Europe. The album also received great radio support from more DJs at BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 2, including multiple spins by Craig Charles on his Funk & Soul Show, with additional plays from Gideon Coe, Nemone, Tom Ravenscroft, Chris Hawkins and Huey Morgan at the stations.
Their sound has been described as a hip hybrid of ’60s and ’70s drenched R&B, Funk, Latin, Jazz, Soul and Psych, 'Last Man' taking the listener 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.
