CodeThe BIG OL’ NASTY GETDOWN is bringing back the funk, seriously. George Clinton and his friends are here to release THE BIG OL’ NASTY GETDOWN – VOLUME 1, and believe me, it lives up to the unbelievably high standards you bastards are putting on it.

It’s actually strange that I would get around to reviewing an album BEFORE it gets released! I mean, if you know me, or have read anything I put on this website, you’d know that I constantly screw up writing reviews or giving up information about something before it becomes available on every other website on this thing we like to call the INTERNET.

But, for The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown, I have decided that you should know what you’re getting into before it’s available for sale. The group of individuals comprising the Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown has notable recording musicians Norwood Fisher, George Clinton, Belita Woods, Sidney Barnes, Kendra Foster, and Patryce “Choc’let” Banks. Yep, it’s a collective who’s who of all the funk, ska, reggae and soul that you would stir in a pot of awesome sauce.

So, what does this album sound like? Well, for all you FISHBONE fans out there, you’ll be happy to hear a lot of Norwood Fisher’s influence with songs such as COLLEGE FUNK. The song WAKE ME UP gives me chills just listening to it. It’s like as if Elvis Costello met a funkadelic tribe of extraterrestrial funk-nuts from the galaxy Funk-Yeah. Plus AWAY FROM THE WORLD and THE BEAUTY OF PRETTY also stayed in my head for days after hearing.

THE BIG OL’ NASTY GETDOWN – VOLUME 1 is set for a release date of May 22nd, so you’ll be able to get your ears wrapped around this album soon. The album comprises of 11 amazing songs which will stay in your stereo for months to come.
