A while ago I made a list of noiserock bands with only two members so obviously I needed a list for one man bands too. Because I only knew a couple one man bands (with my all time favourite Reptoid) I asked for help on some forums and stuff and got a lot of answers. So , embrace yourselves for a lot of angry loud noises from bands with only one human.
