One Last Wish was a short-lived emo band from Washington, DC formed in May 1986 and split up in January 1987. The group featured 3/4 of Rites Of Spring
(Guy Picciotto, Eddie Janney, and Brendan Canty) joined by former Faith (3)
guitarist Michael Hampton. To make room for Hampton, Janney moved from his traditional position of guitarist to bassist. The band played 6 shows together, appeared on one compilation, and recorded an album. Following the recording, the group ceased practicing for reasons even the band appears to be unsure of, although Janney's alleged unhappiness playing bass is rumoured to have played some role. Dischord Records
had expressed interest in the band, but with the group's split the record was shelved, as Dischord was attempting to shed its reputation for releasing posthumous albums. In 1999, Dischord finally issued the album, now titled "1986", on CD.
