1 Last Chance plays music that is like a punch in the face, you never forget it and then you want to go get another round. That is the only way to explain their catchy melodic bone crunching sound. There is just enough melody in their rough exterior to pull you in and keep you there but it's the rawness and toughness of the foundation that they build that propels you into their circle of sound. This is the epitome of a power trio and they now how to turn it up to maximum volume and keep it there! If you like music with an edge, punk, melodic rock or hardcore, this train is going down the tracks full steam ahead so jump onboard before you miss the ride!
1 Last Chance’s origins can be traced back to around 2006, when a couple of young stallions decided to set penis jokes to music. The two plucky youngsters, going by the monikers of DJ Bmac (Brandon McDaniel) and Jake Dixie (Jacob Hampton) at the time, formed a tour de force of punk and hip-hop centered around their junk and what they intended to do with it. Though that project was relatively short-lived, it sowed the seeds of their future endeavor by making it clear that the combination of these two nerds inevitably creates an explosion of creamy goodness in the flavor of rock.
The collaboration between our two heroes ceased around the time that Jake decided to undergo a job change in a far-away land. Bmac continued his legacy of rocking by founding 1LC’s original lineup and seeing it through until several key members parted ways. Eventually, Jake transferred back to the motherland (Oxford, MS) and the collaboration reconvened, better than before; this time with the angry depression that comes with age and life experience. Having been inspired in their youths by bands like Bad Religion, The Offspring and Millencolin, Jake and Bmac are more than well in-tune with their punk muses.
1LC’s new and final lineup includes: Brandon McDaniel on guitar, Jacob Hampton on vocals, Brett Cox on bass and Miguel Cubillo on drums. Brett has expert bass playing hands forged from years of churning butter, as he was incapable of bossing around his 8 Amish wives. The rhythmically gifted young Miguel has a social security number of 000-00-0000 and, yeah, we all buy that.
