Need artist's name


Well, once again Allmusic.com is failing me so I’ll try here. Your vast musicical knowledge came up with the answer in less than an hour last time; let’s see how well it works today.
I was at the gym again and their piped in muzac (?) played a song I liked and didn’t know. It was an up-tempo, slightly overproduced (lots of horns, big sound, maybe British?) song with a soul, Motown feel to it (but only just a "feel", I wouldn't classify the song as soul. Sounds like it was produced in the last 10 years) but I’m pretty sure the male singing was white. The chorus repeated the refrain, “I’m a full grown man”.

Mucho Thanks

simply red?, the commitments?
Muddy Waters? Little Village?
The song is probably "Mannish Boy," a Muddy Waters song.

If it's not Muddy Waters who did the version you heard, put the song title in AllMusic.com and go down the list of others who have covered it.

The Phosphorescent album is one of the best album to come along in years but I can't imagine it getting played in a gym. They're along the lines of Neutral Milk Hotel only more chilled out and "earthy".
Is it available on vinyl?
Haven't seen it on vinyl. It's on the Misra label and some of their stuff is on wax but not this on. The album is titled Aw Come Aw Wry. You can listen to Full Grown Man and a few other tracks HERE on their myspace page.
Thanks for all the responses. Don_s, I had done exactly that (Google) and got the same results. None were it though.
Vcarv, my first source for any of this type of research is always allmusic.com (see initial post), but I came up dry there as well.

Thanks though!

Sure sounds like Beck to me:
