ABOUT THIS RELEASE

Released in 2005 ‘Winner’ was the long-awaited follow-up to Big Boss Man‘s 2001 debut ‘Humanize’. Winner continues the trip through 60’s Funk and Heavy Hammond Organ grooves, along the way taking in Bongo/Fuzz in ‘Everybody Boogaloo’, Latin Soul in ‘Complicated Lady’, French Beat in ‘Tu As Gaché Mon Talent Ma Cherie’, Floor-fillers such as ‘Kelvin Stardust’ Boogaloo in, er, ‘Boogaloo’.The album was produced by the band and Morgan Nicholls (The Streets / Muse / Gorillaz). Morgan the son of Immediate Records’ in-house songwriter Billy Nicholls, had a ready supply of 60’s instruments in the studio that were fully utilised, being choc-full of groovy stuff to add to the BBM session: The Who’s Hammond was heavily featured as was Steve Marriott’s first guitar, with Clavis and Wurlitzer all being added to the recordings.

Since its release, tracks from Winner have featured on several European and US compilations, whilst Kelvin Stardust was recently extensively used for a Renault ‘Fluence’ music placement whilst also featuring in an episode of hit US series Ugly Betty. The band extensively toured around Europe around the release, proving a bit hit in Spain, Italy, France and Russia in particular.
