Independent Reggae label: More Cut Records was a label, belonging to Dennis Bovell.  More Cut issued one single through K&B Records in 1976, 'Run Rasta Run' by African Stone (MCT-001).   A second single, with the same catalogue number, followed in 1977: Dennis Matumbi's 'Raindrops'.  1978 saw the release of a 12" single by Joshua Moses, 'Africa Is Our Land', but after that the label seems to have hibernated for a while before reappearing in 1980 as one of a group of EMI-licensed-and-distributed Reggae labels (Arawak, Radics, Matumbi, Taxi) sharing a RIC-100 numerical series.  In this latter incarnation it issued two more singles.   The logo was the same as the 1976 version, but the overall design was different.  RIC-112 was an oddity: it was a reissue of a single by quirky Pop group Stavely Makepeace, with steel drums dubbed on to it.  Distributed By More Cut Records.
