The Only Ones - Lovers of Today

The Only Ones are an English rock and roll band. They were initially active in the late 1970s and were associated with punk rock, yet straddled the musical territory in between punk, power pop and hard rock, with noticeable influences from psychedelia. The band reformed in 2007 following the band's biggest hit "Another Girl, Another Planet" being used in a Vodafone ad campaign in 2006. They completed a small UK tour in June and more dates are planned for the rest of the year.

The Only Ones have been very influential on the indie rock and alternative rock scenes ever since, on bands such as The Replacements, Blur and Nirvana, and more recently The Libertines. Several bands have covered their song "Another Girl, Another Planet", including, The Libertines (at London Forum with Peter Perrett guesting), The Replacements and Blink 182.
