A nine-piece party beast who specialize in putting big cheesy grins on faces and getting some serious movement out of knees and, for want of a better word, ''booty''. They have a sense of humor and perspective, a love of pop music of all kinds, and minds of their own.
They weigh in at a full tonne with a gymnastic reggae drum and bass combination, a heavy ska brass line up, rock''s finest on lead guitar, a light funk touch on keys, folked-up rhythm guitars, the bluest of harps and vocalists who stray errantly between the corners of the known musical universe. An epicurean mix indeed, but a pure distillation from this melting pot yields a unique sound, and, most importantly, fun aplenty.
From the first gig in May of 2004, BISON has galvanised crowds and developed a small but determined following across the North of the UK, from Leeds to Manchester, Sheffield to Nottingham, and down south from Bristol to London.
Saturday Big Shop is their fourth album, and their best yet, adding a new sophistication to their trademark full-on ska assault. In it they turn a blood-shot eye on the pressing issues of the day including Barbra Streisand, the pubs of Leek, Staffs, jeb-ends, blue Rizlas, Football Focus, bad cartoons, pickled onion Monster Munch, unpaid gas bills and the likely environmental benefits of listening to Michael Jackson''s Earth Song.
Put your shopping away, throw on something orange, and enjoy.
