         I don't like clowns. Clowns are scary. Especially clowns with poodles coming out of their stomachs. Or clowns with guns. There's a     Richmond- base band called Redline, with a snappy logo and slick clothes... who cover their CDs with pictures of clowns with guns and     poodles coming out of their stomachs.
          Don't see a Redline show if you're one of those music fans who are upset about the way MTV ignores Huey Lewis and the News. This one     is dramatic, powerful, together band ( Redline, not Huey Lewis ). The music on their indie CD " My disease" is dramatic near - Goth, delivered     seemingly by a band holding an ice cream cone in one hand and a meat cleaver in the other.
          Redline avoids many traps that make a band an easy target for criticism - being repetitive, uninspired, trendy or boring.. My first thought in      listening was how great it would be scaring trick-or-treaters from my porch with this. Then I started really listening.
          The riffs are weighly and tight - heavy, fresh, alternative in their real form - as an alternative to most of what is out there in clubs and on the      radio.Their press kit calls them "straight - ahead rockers" This isn't straight, thanks to singer Karl Anderson, who can sound as scary as the      clown on  his CD cover looks, or as attention
grabbing as Iggy Pop on a baritoned mission of moodiness. < Next Page >
