Domino Effect’, was the debut single from the four-piece on Weekender records, it combined the soaring heartfelt vocals of lead singer Alex Ohms with Dean Bate’s punch-the-air guitar melodies.
The driving rhythm section of Chris Titley on bass and Dave O'Connor on drums provides a rigid backbone to their well-crafted songs.
Invitations to support fellow Midlanders the Twang and Editors came rolling in thick and fast. These were then followed by unforgettable gigs with Jack Penate, the Holloways, Little Man Tate, the Maccabees, Babyshambles, Supergrass and The Charlatans.
Robert Plant - Led Zeppelin
"There aren't really many good bands coming out of wolverhampton, just one great band called the Lines"
Denzil Watson - BBC Raw Talent
"With the band chemistry of The Libertines and the grove of The Stone Roses, the future looks bright for this Wolverhampton four-piece"
They depict hopes, fears, secrets and lies, last chances, missed opportunities, Saturday
night highs, Sunday morning lows, big dreams and small towns and the familiar yet eternal
theme of being fenced in and wanting out.
Manchester's Sycamore may just be trio, but don’t let this lull you into any sort of false sense of sonic security. Boom!. There’s just one guitar, but it’s whipped into the loudest, sweetest sounding scuzz of wah and scorched tube driven noise, maybe ever.
Sycamore are a very heavy, quite dark rock band and there’s also a bluesy, broken down rock and roll complexion to their moderately paced, suicide-romantic, explosions of sound.
