Airlift In The Desert
Here's another - to my mind - unique album.
The Lines were a post-punk band that toured with bands like The Cure, Bauhaus, The Birthday Party and so on. I don't know very much about them except that this is their second album and it's quite different from the first (Therapy) - much more atmospheric. I always think of it along with the Aeriel FX album, not sure why.
The band comprised Nicholas Cash, Richard Conning, Jo Forty, and Michael Linehan, and they recorded for Red Records.
There's not much info about them on the Web but you could try http://www.torchsongonline.com/thelines.html for a start.
Interesting thing - the final track (Respit) is the first track (Stripe) backwards. It sounds great either way!
The Lines - Ultramarine (1982)
1 - Stripe
2 - Airlift
3 - Tunnel Party
4 - Ursa Major
5 - Flood-Bank
6 - Fury
7 - Ultramarine
8 - Respit
IMPORTANT - I received an email from Dan Selzer of Acute Records (http://www.acuterecords.com) saying that the Lines albums are about to be released on CD - hurrah!
For that reason I've removed the link and deleted the file from RS.
