... my dad used to work in maintenance for the BBC. Every now and then he'd wander past the studios for Radio 1 and there'd be boxes of singles that they were just chucking out that my dad would bring home. Mostly these were promo copies and were largely junk, but every now and then there'd be some gems: I remember getting She Bangs the Drums on 7" before I even really knew who the Stone Roses were.
He'd also occasionally get full albums, one of which was called Upstream, by a band called One. To this day, I know absolutely nothing about them, who they were, whether they had a career other than this one album. Here's a link to one track I just found on YouTube:
I listened to this album endlessly playing a game called Myth on my Amstrad CPC6128. Thanks One, whoever you were.
