HAVING A BALL * recommended *
:: One More Grain ::
28 January 2008 / No Label Required / White Heat / 8 Trk CD
By JA

The mysterious London based One More Grain have a distinctive flavour thanks to their northern frontman D P Quinn. There’s already a raft of reviews out there, yet no-one seems to have made the connection between his semi-ranted narratives and an obvious influence, Mark.E. Smith. This is the sound of a mature Fall mucking around with hypnotic rhythms and trumpets. New single “Having A Ball” skips along like a clockwork mental patient creating a result that bounces down the road like a schizophrenic Dexy’s playing swing jazz with of course, a tamed Mark E on vocals. It’s this mature and unavoidably concoction of suave, loose jazz with this poetic northern attack that could possibly ensure that “One More Grain” are one of this years more original bands.
