The Lines:: Memory Span (reissue)

Between 1978 and 1983, The Lines released 5 singles, 1 EP and 2 LPs to mixed reviews and little sales. Over the years, these few records have become rare and expensive collector’s items and have never been released on CD until now. Acute’s first The Lines reissue Memory Span represents 5 years in the growth of one of the most interesting bands of the era. The singles possess an angular and melodic thoughtfulness and precision that bring to mind Wire, the Soft Boys, the Feelies or Mission of Burma. Although they played shows with bands like The Cure, Bauhaus, and Birthday Party, and featured members of prag Vec and Alternative TV, they were never part of any scene. They never toured and rarely spoke to the press. For 5 years they rehearsed, performed and recorded to little acclaim, leaving only 8 releases on vinyl.
