This is a review of "Swing Ball" recorded by Being 747. The review was written by Sam Saunders in 2003.
This one bounces very hard. Dave Cooke is in declamatory mood and the mutant percussive backing suits very well. Everything about it is raw, sharp and even more disturbing than first impressions suggest. And they do suggest. disturbing. Infectious isn’t the wrong word either. Compulsive, addictive, paranoid and obsessive also approach the truth.
