One Job Town is the second album from Grievous Angels, an alt country band started by Chuck Angus, after he left the punk-inflected L'Etranger (and long before his current campaign to become the leader of the federal New Democratic Party). "Gordie and My Old Man" and "Crossing the Causeway" were both released as singles and received extensive radio play.

One Job Town received a 1991 Juno nomination for Best Roots or Traditional Album and helped gain the band a 1992 nomination for Best Country Group. AllMusic gave it 3 stars (out of 5), saying that "most of One Job Town is powerfully direct, with haunting vocals and stories, as well as excellent musicianship."
