Another one of the most amazing albums in the world, buried beneath all that radio-friendly garbage. Though they vanished in 1982 with No Wave and the rest of punk music, this could have been released yesterday. an amazing take on the sound of the Velvet Underground, it has their jagged edges, but they find their own voice. God, The Only Ones are the Only Ones for me!
Here is what our local paper, "The Tulsa World", said in an excellent summation of this band and this album:
"Before there were the Replacements, the Psychedelic Furs, there were the only ones-a group of romantic punks with a penchant for pop and a healthy dollop of heroin chic. "Another Girl, Another Planet" has been covered to its nub, and no wonder."
