One Square Mile
One Square Mile
One Square Mile started as an experiment of sorts. Rob Holzman, John Mccree and Earl Liberty had run into each other at shows in and around the South Bay. Having all been in several bands before, the idea of starting something new was kicked around. Earl having been out of the music scene since the spring of 1984 reluctantly agreed.
Practice space in Hermosa Beach’s Abalone Lounge was booked and thus it all began. With only small parts to songs John had, the three began to jam. As time went on the John, Rob and Earl began to file share musical parts and starting constructing songs. By fall of 2016 it was time to find a front man. Several ideas where thrown around, but they finally selected Noel Neville, who was a member of The Resolutions. Recorded songs were sent to him and he came in ready to put lyrics to music. He did not disappoint. His voice and lyrical content were perfect for the type of music the band was putting together.
As time went on it was time to name the band. Again several ideas were thrown around, but given band were all living in or from Hermosa Beach the idea of a hometown themed name seemed right. Add to that, Hermosa Beach is essentially credited to giving birth to west coast punk rock with Black Flag, Circle Jerks, The Descendants and Pennywise all calling this area home.
"One Square Mile" came up and stuck. Inspired by the size of our town (basically)...Hermosa Beach is 1.43 square miles...rounded down to 1.
In the summer of 2017 the One Square Mile’s debut EP was released on Felony Records. Recorded at Hermosa Beach’s Screaming Leopard Studios, and engineered by Ian Petersen, the Kickin’ Rocks EP brings together the traditional fierce South Bay punk rock sound, coupled with some new sonic elements showcasing each members musical talents.
Also released was the band’s debut video for the single Judge, Jury, Executioner: https://youtu.be/rbopdwe1VFE and Dying Breed at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-eoSnD1yEBnjfrOMUDQXkQ.
Since starting this venture. Rob Holzman has been replaced by Hank Jacobson on drums due to health issues.
