In the chill of 2012 Dave and Jack filed for involuntary redundancy and took up residence in an abandoned building somewhere in the North East of England, known only to the locals as “Scunthorpe”.
It became clear they were not alone when Harley was found licking moss for sustenance in a dark corner. This, coupled with wild man Shez appearing, gave them only one option.
Form a band!
With crude instruments fashioned from spit and gaffer tape they attempted to make enough noise so that everyone left or paid them to stop.
After eleventeen pints of journeying to space, Harley, Jack, Shez and Dave accidentally staggered onto the stage of the local pub. In a scene reminiscent of a Carry On film they had to perform for the baying crowd.
You, yes you, are witness to the outcome of that night and can support its endeavours by dropping a blank cheque into the stamped addressed envelope provided.
Mostly written on discarded beer mats, OneUnder play a blend of strong alcohol and painkillers that would kill most mortals.
Created in a lab by Albert Einstein's sister's husband's half brother, they stalk the universe seeking the perfect Greggs Steak bake.
Occasionally busking for change, OneUnder say they've had your mum.
So underground, no one knows what they look like, OneUnder have big claims to make.
“My Mum heard us practise in the shed once, she said it was alright.” Guitarist Jack announced last night.
“If you smoke a joint and walk into a door frame it sounds amazing.” Dave, vocalist, declared proudly to press last Friday.
“Do you have the time?” a man in a street proclaimed in Portsmouth seven years ago.
Clearly, we haven't heard the last of these chaps.
OneUnder, because Northerners have feelings too.
Dave Millward- Vocals
The lead vocalist for OneUnder, Dave is best known for his time with Subcutaneous. He is also the main lyricist and often comes up with entire songs within a practise. He is also an expert at finding horrible things on the internet and making everyone else feel sick.
Jack Spence- Guitar
Jack is very much the youngster of the band but makes up for it with ego, lots of ego. Responsible for most of the riffs used by the band, Jack’s characteristic big guitar work has moved the band in a different direction and into the realms of Stoner Metal. This, mixed with his penchant for weird time signatures, has helped define the current sound. He also is the producer and recording engineer at Central Foundry.
Shez Morton- Bass
Usually found lurking in a darkened corner of the stage is Shez, nailing the bass lines to the floor. Shez’s ability to pick up the structure and riffs of songs has meant that the band can churn out songs faster than most people can write a riff.
Harley Boulton- Drums
The bearded man at the back hammers out solid beats that create the spine of the OneUnder machine. With an impressive array of drums and cymbals Harley keeps it all together. He also owns the Central Foundry Studio and Practise Facility
