THE BAND

[ ball bearing border wide ]
Forget Route 66! Follow the A131 from Braintree to Haverhill, through the wild borderlands of Essex and Suffolk, where the band first surfaced. Emerging from the badlands, a trio of redneck wanderers recreating the American blues-rock sound with a twenty first century twist.

The band is a three piece group consisting of; Mark Oneye (lead/rhythm guitar and lead vocals), Stuart Oneye (bass guitar, keyboards and backing vocals), John Oneye (drums, percussion, mandolin and backing vocals). An all original band playing their own brand of American blues-rock music in the vein of Creedence, Springsteen, Black Keys and Steve Earle. Already with two world wide selling albums and music featured on the B.B.C. (pictured below), they bring a new, unique and yet authentic taste of the greatest rock 'n' roll rhythm 'n' blues the world has ever heard. An unstoppable, super-charged, diesel-powered, rail-road train of rhythm, a commentary on the state of the world, as valid now as it was back then.

All three contribute to the song writing process, bringing their varied musical backgrounds and influence to bear on the finished tracks. This is evident in the riff based driving rhythms and free flowing interplay between the elements of the band. The music is loosely based on the seventies style of American Rhythm and Blues, updated for the life and times of the twenty first century.

Three of the bands original songs feature on 'Johnny One Eye', the debut EP, followed later that year (2013) by their debut album, titled 'Medication Blues'. The second album, released in July 2015, titled 'Dirty' contains ten all-new original songs. And now the single 'Mr. President' (January 2017), to be followed by the third album later in the year.



The band itself is named after an old American folk hero, 'Johnny One Eye', an outlaw renegade. However, for us, Johnny is no freedom fighter, he is a badder, meaner and all round nastier character, embodying all the dark, hidden secrets of society. Everything that lurks in the dark corners of everyones imagination, waiting for the time of revolution. He turns up at all the worst moments in time. If you think it couldn't get any worse, then Johnny ain't turned up yet! He crops up from time to time in the music, usually as a harbinger of doom and all things generally bad. Where Johnny walks, trouble ain't far behind.........
