The Only Ones were formed in 1976 and released their debut single, 'Lovers Of Today', on an independent label. After signing to CBS the following year, the band released the hugely influential single, 'Another Girl Another Planet'.
Their debut eponymous album in 1978 immediately drew glowing reviews, due in no small part to Peter Perrett's (Lou Reed influenced) drawl and John Perry's distinctive soaring guitar work. The band went on to release another two albums before splitting in 1981.
During this period, The Only Ones recorded four sessions for John Peel and one Radio 1 'In Concert', plus two appearances for BBC TVs 'Old Grey Whistle Test'. This double CD now brings these complete recordings together for the first time.
John Perry thinks that the Peel sessions brought out the best in the band, characterised by efficient and economical production and sometimes exceeding the recorded versions of the songs. This compilation has been produced with the help of the band and the extensive liner notes include contributions from John Perry. The accompanying 8 page booklet features full recording details and several band photographs.

Un des plus grands groupes anglais !!! Un de mes favoris !!! La voix de Peter Perrett , ses textes fous , sa fascinante présence , la magnifique guitare du très sous-estimé guitariste John Perry , technicien hors pair , jamais en démonstration et dont les courts solis emmènent l'auditeur dans un autre univers où les incantations de P Perrett le guident ! et que dire de la parfaite rythmique , des lourds roulements de toms de l 'étrange M Kellie , clochard celeste et vagabond en rupture du vaisseau Spooky Tooth (Remember "I'm the walrus") !

Ces gens-là auraient du vendre des millions d'albums !!!

In fact , I think the link is working but you must wait & try it again later because Rapidshare is working on the server ( that's why you have this message :

Server 132.rapidshare.com unavailable due to hardware-problems. We are working on it. )
I'll check it

Thanks very much! This one is still alive and well and no password. What a fantastic band.

Super. Merci. Can't thank you enough, been looking for the Peel Sessions for years since I lost the cassette.

KeithL a dit…

Thank you, you're a life-saver! I bought the original "Peel Sessions" CD when it first came out, but I dug it out the other day and found it had suffered from 'disc rot' and was partly unreadable. This is an excellent replacement!

je suis d'accord, probablement LE groupe le plus sous-estimé de cette période riche en groupes rock fabuleux. Les Only Ones avaient peut-être le cul entre 2 chaises, pas vraiment punk, franchement rock, un peu trop pop... En tout cas, les compos ont ce que peu de groupes ont: la classe. En France, on avait les Dogs.
En tout cas "another girl.." est à mon avis un des plus grands singles de cette période. J'ai acheté par la suite l'album de Peter Perett avec The One: "Woke up sticky". Très très bon, et très peu connu, comme d'hab. Ce groupe et ces membres ne seraient-ils pas maudits? Mais au fait, ils tournent en ce moment, non? Espoir d'un nouvel album?

MIDNIGHT RAMBLER a dit…

ILs sont passés sur Canal + : une chanson par soir : on trouve les videos sur le blog Powerpop Criminals !
Effectivement ils sont en train d'enregistrer ou ont fini un nouvel album !
bien d'accord, le lp "Woke up sticky" est superbe !
