One By One
One By One
They're also related (via Micky & Sned) to Generic, that unbelievable band whose releases correspond to the first four releases of Flat Earth (the fifth one was the first One By One 7", "World On Fire"). We're talking real class here... Their discography is a bit of a mystery to me; I'm well aware of the "World On Fire" & "Fight" 7"'s, as well as of the one posted here (duh...). Further, discogs also claims the existence of an LP (which I have no reason to doubt) & Mr. Bacteria also lists a split 7" with Sedition, an unreleased, partially completed second LP, & a radio session...
Sadly, I've only listened to the 7" here & to the awesome track they contributed to the Whispers compilation (that's right, another Whispers band appearing in this blog)... As I mentioned above, One By One gave their place to Ebola (they're far not that same band, but Micky has been in both of them) & Ebola gave their place to Jinn who're still active. I got the Ebola/Jinn split LP (which I cannot recommend strong enough) a long time ago direct from the band (from Micky, in fact) & I still like that record a lot - it seems to me both bands are going someplace where UK bands have not been before all that often... The Jinn split with The Suicide Handbook is also notable, though I admit that I got tired of all the screaming after a while. That's it for now. Scraps of info, lengthy bios, anecdotes etc.
regarding Generic/One By One/Ebola/Jinn are more than welcome here, so thanks in advance to anyone that'll take the time to shed some light on these bands. Meanwhile, here are your links.
