         Whether you're recording music, driving a race car or using heavy machinery, a red line means the same thing. It's a warning or a limit.    Cross it and you risk distortion, overheating or damage.
        The members of Redline, a Petaluma - base alternative rock trio, don't worry about crossing the line. They chose their moniker because they
    feel they're pushing the limits of rock music and breaking new ground. They effort seems to be paying off. Their debut CD, "My disease," has
    received airplay on more than 100 radio station in 14 states since it was released last February. A new CD is scheduled for release in March.
    Redline sprinkles its heavy alternative rock with doses of jazz and R & B. " It's kind of heavy music meets Pink Floyd with a psychedelic sound,"
    said lead vocalist and bassist Karl Anderson. "Our trademark is the beat and key changes. It gives moody ups and downs, highs and lows."
        Anderson, a Casa Grande High grad, J.C. Prince (lead guitar and vocals) and Steve "Sarge" Giordano (drums) all met in Petaluma in    mid-1990s. Anderson lives in Berkeley now, but the band didn't hit its musical stride until four years ago when they began playing as a trio.    
        "When we play together, there's a Redline sound that just flows out of us," Anderson said. "We have a chemistry that you can only get by     playing music with the same people for a number of years. It's a chemistry that goes beyond keeping time or the beat. When we're writing a     song, the guitar player may come out with idea and the other two will immediately know where to go. We start playing and the vocal lines just     appear as a stream of subconscious reality < Next Page >
