ONE ELEVEN HEAVY

Dan Brown (Royal Trux/‘68 Comeback) - bass Hans Chew (Jack Rose/Endless Boogie) - piano/vocals Adam Kriney (High Time/La Otracina) - drums Nick Mitchell Maiato (DSDV/Chalaque) - guitar/vocals James Toth (Wooden Wand) - guitar/vocals

Key proponents of the new wave of ´jam´ or ´Cosmic American´ influenced music infiltrating the US underground (see Howlin´ Rain, Garcia Peoples et al), One Eleven Heavy´s debut album ´Everything´s Better´ has charmed the critics with a joyful combination of great songwriting and extended improvisations.

‘Music From Big Pink or Workingman’s Dead being deconstructed by Royal Trux.’ *** MOJO

‘Sounding somewhat like The Band and Crazy Horse with a smattering of roots-era Dead, One Eleven Heavy is centred around a veritable roster of players… It’s organic, joyous, upbeat and natural.’ **** Shindig!

´An unabashed, triumphantly affectionate recreation of what Gram Parsons called Cosmic American Music - the country, folk and blues-informed psychedelic rock of the late 1960s and early 70s.´ The Wire

‘It swings on a revolving door of goofball riffs, spun up and spun around all dizzy from an elastic rock and roll boogie.’ NPR

‘Taps into a collective consciousness of what was actually “classic” about rock, without being dictated by what was pressed, sold or spun through the static crackle of radio. This echoes the ’72-’74-era Grateful Dead as it was lived in the room, and not as it was felt from the runout.’ Raven Sings The Blues

´Starts out sounding like the Doobie Brothers colliding head on with Little Feat and then dives off into the kind of jazz-flecked guitar, bass and percussive jam that the Hampton Grease Band once made all their own.´ Terrascope
