Released 27/10/08. The Only Ones were one of the punk era’s most underrated bands. The band played guitar rock that sounded deeply indebted to the New York Dolls and other mid-’70s proto-punks. Singing his intelligently crafted pop songs in a semi-tuneful whine of a voice, front-man Peter Perrett was an astute chronicler of the vagaries of modern, dysfunctional love.
Although they split up in 1981 after only three records, the Only Ones legacy, due in large part to their most famous song ‘Another Girl, Another Planet’, became more influential as the years went on. In 2006 Vodafone picked ‘Another Girl’ to soundtrack a national media advertising campaign and the success of the advert led to the band reforming for a 2007 UK tour that was incredibly well received by both fans and critics alike.
‘Live At Shepherds Bush’ captures the London leg of the tour with a full show from the legendary Shepherds Bush Empire venue, where the band play many of their most famous songs to a packed crowd
