07.10.06: Tribute to PETER PERRETT & THE ONLY ONES
"In a world of improbable haircuts and other temporary signals, The Only Ones looked timeless and sounded eternal. You couldn't place them any more than you could ignore them."
- Robert Sandall (from the liner notes to The Only Ones' Immortal Story)
Peter Perrett, doomed romantic cult hero supreme, led The Only Ones through 3 charged albums of unfufilled infatuation and chronic compulsion. Definitely of the mid-70's British Punk era, but also outsiders from a collective of outsiders.
Tonight on WE"RE GONNA BE TIMELESS, we will feature highlights from their three albums plus Peel Sessions, alternate mixes, b-sides and tracks from Perrett's pre and post Only Ones output: England's Glory and The One.
For those of you who want to know more about Peter Perrett, The Only Ones, and England's Glory, go here.
