Profile The Grip featuring ex-Chelsea member Willie Dowling and former Viza man Mark Keen were touted as being “the next big thing” in certain circles of the UK music press. I don’t know why the band didn’t happen as they had some fine material,Crush on You the lead off here is brilliant. The production maybe could’ve been better (sounds a little dated now) and I have to say when I bought it years ago I wasn’t too impressed with the sound then, but there’s no doubting the songs quality….
