The Only Ones: Old Waldorf, San Francisco CA

Mark Cooper, Record Mirror, 2 August 1980

THE ONLY Ones are in grave danger of remaining a cult in England and obscure in America. This is their second appearance at the Waldorf in nine months and on both occasions their audience has been disappointingly small. Peter Perrett's failure to find an audience must help in convincing him that he lives in a private world. A conviction that obviously inspires his muse and sense of personal drama but fails to draw large numbers into the whirlpool of his particular obsessions. Only the lonely are a self-penetrating crew.
