One Sock Missing is the second album from the Grifters released in 1993 on Shangri-La Records. "Certainly the most low-key (if not lo-fi) of the Grifters' early records, 1993's One Sock Missing is less noisy and aggressive than its immediate predecessor, So Happy Together [1]" One Sock Missing signals the direction and sound the band would work on throughout their career [2].
