Big Mean Sound Machine are a 20 piece band who want to kick
your arse with sound. Their MySpace tag reads "Live Experimental
and Electronic Afro-Beat, Funk and Dub" - can't say fairer than that!
Everything is driven by the groove of the rhythm section which give
a foundation for the horns, guitar and keyboards to play over.
All 9 tracks are instrumental and draw you in with a funk feel
that defies you not to nod your head along to them. Imagine Fela
Kuti jamming along with the Emperors New Clothes and you
get the vibe played here.
There is some shit-hot tight playing but does not sound over-produced,
it just seems to flow effortlessly.
