Love it when you get a record that's worth buying for the sleeve alone. That's how I feel about One More Grain's cover for 'Scarborough Fair'. Just as super-dooper is the song itself. Sonic drift hovers above and amongst brittle bones of the much loved tune like a marauding UFO spreading tendrils of mind-reshaping mist, whilst the arrangement has an atmospheric lounge jazz feel, but fronted by someone with the vocal style of Phil Oakey (IE Northern and endearingly flat). Then the brass band comes out to play but it all sounds like the aliens have started sucking the song into some kind of sonic vacuum, it sounds kinda beautiful & lulling but ever so slightly disembodied & sinister, like a song you'd compose in a dream. Totally made the Gammon & Sauerkraut classic their own. The flip sounds like Pigbag in space. Percussive punk-funk grooves with a bizarre jazz twist, a bit like an old spy theme performed by a carnival on acid. Great! An entertaining little number on 7" wax courtesy of those lovely Static caravan maniacs.
