THE FESTIVITIES HERE INCLUDE the band's namesake song, "One Above Two Below." It is an impassioned plea for sanity in a sometimes nightmarish, seemingly crumbling world. Both the studio version and a monolithic live take are posted. "Freeze the Moment" features a driving, persistent Sabbath-like riff that gives way to a lush, acoustic guitar-laden middle section - before resolving in a flourish. One Above's high-energy cover of Concrete Blonde's incredible "Bloodletting (Vampire Song)" is featured here in an explosive live rehearsal version that will surely clear your speakers of any cobwebs that they might have previously housed. The soft, melodic but pensive instrumental "Never to Fear" represents 1A2B's experimental aspect, as its basic tracks were improvised whilst being recorded live in the studio. The band cites a strong influence, the legendary and groundbreaking King Crimson, for the inspiration behind the free-form middle section of this track. "Dying Time Again" is best described as one powerful protest song. This Anthony St James original concludes with a spoken line that paraphrases Shakespeare...one that will echo down the corridors of time: "A coward dies a thousand times / The valiant taste of death but once." One Above had thought their take on Uriah Heep's acoustic "Lady In Black" to be lost forever, but it has indeed resurfaced and now appears for the first time here. The big beat original "Happy Birthday (Says the Witch)," musically speaking, is also very much inspired by one of One Above's primary influences: the great Black Sabbath. One Above's fiery, rather danceable version of the (Bob Dylan-written) Hendrix classic "All Along the Watchtower" is also here. "Seven Miles Down" depicts a futuristic showdown between super hero and arch villain - set far underneath the Earth's surface. The hypnotic "The Sea of Love" came about during One Above's earliest rehearsals, immediately taking on an exotic life of its own. One Above Two Below thanks you for visiting and listening, and trusts that you'll enjoy these titles and also those that will follow in the days ahead.


INFLUENCES:
Black Sabbath, King Crimson, Jimi Hendrix, Captain Beyond, Robin Trower, Uriah Heep, Cream, Deep Purple, Rainbow, Dust.

ONE ABOVE TWO BELOW's music has been described as heavy, soulful, melodic - and in some cases (such as "Never to Fear") - experimental. One Above began as a power trio featuring Johnny Simone (guitar), Anthony St James (bass & vocals) and Bobby Nappo (drums). Since those days, the drummer's chair has been filled at various times by JT, Barry Bangemout® and Al Esis. When real life and schedules permit, One Above (or "1A2B") continues to concentrate on writing and performing original music and interpreting personal favorites. Enjoy, and come visit our Facebook and SoundCloud pages - IF YOU DARE, of course. Our NEW SoundCloud original playlist is featured below - and, we must say - it ROCKS. Pleasant dreams (and nightmares), friends & acquaintances. You're always welcome here.
