You and Me – One Night Only

one night onlyOne Night Only are a British indie rock band from Helmsley, North Yorkshire formed in 2003.

One Night Only formed in summer 2003, consisting initially of Mark Hayton, Daniel Parkin(POB), Sam Ford(Gunner) and Kai Smith. The band did not have a vocalist until George Craig, a friend of Ford’s brother, joined in a practice. He was asked to be the vocalist, but insisted on playing guitar as well. Smith then left the band. Contrary to some reports, they did not start out as a Beatles cover band – they initially played songs by bands such as Blink-182, New Found Glory and the Beatles, as well as some of their own material.

The name, One Night Only, came about when asked to play a gig. They did not have a name at the time and so came up with One Night Only, intending the title to, literally, last for only one night, however the name stuck to this day. They performed their first gig on December 12, 2003 in Kirkbymoorside Memorial Hall, which became a popular venue in their early days. In 2005, keyboardist Jack Sails(Fish) joined the band. The band have appeared on The Friday Night Project performing their third single “It’s About Time”. George Craig also appeared on Hollyoaks, performing an acoustic version of the same song.

In 2007, the band toured with Milburn and The Pigeon Detectives. Their first headline tour started in January 2008, ending in March. Their biggest headline tour to date took place in autumn 2008. They have also played at several festivals this year, including Isle of Wight, Oxegen and Glastonbury.

The band have done a subsequent tour, supported by northern Irish rock trio General Fiasco, Onlookers and other bands, at such venues as the Lincoln Engine Shed and The Astoria.

People say I only hear what I want to
That much is true
People say I only see what I want to
Then how come I see you

You and me, equality
Thats how it should be
You and me
You and me, equality
Thats how it should be
You and me

People say that I creep you out
No understanding, no cash in hand
All I see, is apparently
What do they know
About you and me

You and me, equality
Thats how it should be
You and me
You and me, equality
Thats how it should be
You and me

Lover just maybe
Come over, jack it up

You and me, equality
Thats how it should be
You and me
You and me, equality
Thats how it should be
You and me

People say that I creep you out
No understanding, no cash in hand
All I see, is apparently
What do they know
About you and me

About DJ Allyn

DJ Allyn is a burned out radio guy who went on to become a burned out sound engineer for a few Seattle area grunge bands in the 1980s and 1990s. Left the madness of worldwide tours with bands, cleaned up my act and went into the relative sanity of sound engineering for television series. Currently working as the Director of Sound for a television series being filmed in North Vancouver, British Columbia. I am always on the lookout for interesting videos, old music, and fun.
