Don't Let The Bastards Grind You Down


As requested, I went ahead and ripped a couple of One By One 7"s, and Mike generously contributed rips of their 12". The "Fight" 7" is one of my all time favorite EPs, drawing on tons of UK punk and hardcore traditions, but of course sounding like something quite all its own. Two deadly forces are conspiring: rage and intelligence. The same is true for the other two records posted here, but unfortunately the vocals are more subdued (both by Micky and the recording) by comparison (some of this has to do with the absence of Karin's vocals). Either way, this is classic hardcore/punk that should never be forgotten. It seems that the long-promised One By One discography CD has been back-burnered, as Micky is focusing on his fiction writing.

too cool! thanks to both you and Mike very much. I tried to extract the rar file for the 7"s but it gives me an error that that archive is damaged somehow. Any ideas?
Thanks again!!!

awesome - thanks again to the both of you! It's a shame that discography will probably never come out.

It's about time someone put up the lp, I've had a ripped version someone sent me for a while. Makin' Bacon is my favorite song.
