Since day one, funk collective The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown has specialized in pulling together the best of the best from the world of funk, soul and R&B. This time around, they’ve added a little funk metal and ska punk into the mix with collaborations from Vernon Reid of Living Colour and Fishbone legends Angelo Moore, Norwood Fisher, and Dirty Walt. Reportedly their forthcoming Volume 2 started by getting all the members together at a cabin in Asheville, NC for a week to jam and just see what happens. And what happened is epic. “Creatures of Habit” rides that chemistry pairing Angelo Moore with some preposterous Vernon Reid shredding and a massive horn section. It’s exactly the kind of jam you need to start your year right.
