THE ATTACK - ANY MORE THAN I DO
Quite simply, one of the greatest UK mod records which incorporates elements of soul, beat, and psychedelia into a most appealing potion that's just gonna make you move. This is one of those records that just oozes excitement and all of the parts click so well, and, the record just flat out COOKS.
The Attack were pressured by producers to cut sides that didn't reflect their true strengths for the a-side, but the group was truly allowed to be themself on a scant handful of b-sides (including this group written song). Shortly after this record was cut in mid-67, guitarist Davey O'List split to join The Nice and bassist Gerry Henderson was off to join the massively successful Marmalade. Singer Richard Sherman assembled an all-new band, but it was all over for the Attack in early 1968.
