"The Only Ones" were an influential English rock and roll band in the late 1970s who were associated with punk rock, yet straddled the musical territory in between punk, power pop and hard rock, with noticeable influences from psychedelia. They are best known for the song "Another Girl, Another Planet".
The Only Ones were originally formed in August 1976 by Peter Perrett. Perrett had been recording demos since 1973 and in late 1975 was introduced to guitarist John Perry as a temporary bass player. (The guitarist at that time was Glenn Tilbrook of Squeeze). John wanted to concentrate on playing guitar and he and Perrett then found drummer Mike Kellie (ex-Spooky Tooth), and bassist Alan Mair by August 1976. Their first single "Lovers Of Today" was released through an independent record label (Vengeance) and was immediately made 'Record of The Week' by 3 of the 4 main music papers. A year later they signed to CBS. Their next single "Another Girl, Another Planet" was a very popular and influential song, and unquestionably the band's best known song. It is often featured on various musical box-sets featuring a punk rock or New Wave theme. An album was released ''The Only Ones'...
