Funk, rock, sweet reggae vibes, dub, blues and more are in this new release from Crispy Bottomley - Bassmon at large.
NOTES
“Bottomley's latest release "Bright Eye Day" comes out of chaos, emotional upheaval, tragedy and hope.

Featuring longtime Brainfudge cohorts Great Bob Scott - Donne´ Roberts - Richard Underhill - Perry White - Bryden Baird - James Gray & Jono Grant, the 14 song disc playfully gives you the funk of “My Head is Spinning”, the rocking “Rattle My Cage”, and sweet reggae vibes of “Where is the Love”.
