The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown’s single art, “GROOVY NASTY”..
Mega Funk-collective THE BIG OL’ NASTY GETDOWN will be releasing their latest album The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown – Vol. 2 soon and I was given the task to do some design work for their newest single, “GROOVY NASTY”.
The album has been 10 years in the making and features over 50 musicians including Vernon Reid (Living Colour), Larry Dunn (Earth, Wind and Fire), Speech (Arrested Development), Fred Wesley (James Brown, Horny Horns), Karl Denson (The Rolling Stones, Tiny Universe,) Michael Ray and Clifford Adams (Kool and the Gang,) RonKat Spearman (Katdelic, Parliament-Funkadelic), Alvin Ford Jr. (Dumpstaphunk), Norwood Fisher, Angelo Moore, Dirty Walt (Fishbone), and Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk, The Funky Meters), just to name a few. Not a bad lineup….
The concept is a conjuring of a psychedelic, cosmic Space-funk orchestra and came pretty easily once listening to the music.
Check back as the band & I will be releasing a special art print of the Groovy Nasty design. I will be posting info on this soon….
