Imagine having that one song, the one that 90% of your live audience is coming just to hear. Well The Only Ones are just such a band in that unenviable position, but Another Girl, Another Planet is an amazing song, it still sounds fresh and seems to transcend 1978.
It is a shame though because this is a great album, loved by those in the know, but overlooked by just about everybody else. It has some more great moments on Side 2, It’s the Truth and No Peace for the Wicked being two of them.
Best lyrical moment; Any song with the opening lines – I always flirt with death, I could kill, but I don’t care about it, has to be good.
Hidden gem; Breaking Down
An aside; Long live the wonderful shambolic genius that is Peter Perrett.
