One 4 One / Overthrow - split 7"

For whatever reason, I've always had a weak spot for New Jersey's One 4 One. Can't say I know for sure what sets them apart for me, maybe it's the vocals, but there's something about this band that does it for me. They started out in 1994 and after a break in 2000 are playing again, and band-members have played or are playing in too many bands to mention. I would also have to agree with AJ PathToMisery's post that their 'Seven Year Cicada' album is their best record. But all their material is worthwhile, make no mistake about it. Here's the split 7" they did with Overthrow. This split 7" was released on Distance Records in 1996, the first (and last?) release for that label. The One 4 One tracks on here would later be re-recorded for their 'Trust Is Lost' MCD on Time Served Records, which was a label run by Kevone Bulldoze. Great tracks, both of them.

Overthrow was from Long Island, they were around from 1996 to 2001 and they played fairly straight forward NY hardcore/punk with some slight oi influences. Both their tracks would also appear on other releases of theirs, one on their 'Empowerment Cover Up' 7" on Race Productions from 1996 and one on their 'React' CD on Triple Crown Records from 1999. They would also do a few more splits. Overthrow was quite decent at what they did, but One 4 One is where it's at for me. Unfortunately my copy didn't come with an insert or anything, sorry about that. Either way tho, enjoy.

Is this the One 4 One that had the 'I Won't Lose' EP? It had Goku on it i think? If so, that band ruled. I was wanted to hear more.

Yes, it's the same One 4 One. I re-upped this split 7", enjoy! Also check out the post on Path To Misery I linked to for more 141 material.

Hey, I was listening to this band for the first time on this split and loved it! I managed to find the first 7 inch but all the other releases have been removed from mediafire and other sites similar; I was wondering whether you could upload Seven Years Cicada or The Trust Is Lost. Be a big help, your blog is sick!
