DIRTY-POP
(Spain) Their sounds come from the estrangement of the musical styles they love merged in an inusual melting-pot, which finds the most difficult even if in search of the most simple. Their live acts show that two artists can sound as powerful as if there were six of them on the stage and, depending on their mood, if you are lucky the show could end in a happening.

Biography

LAST MINUTE!!!

Líneas Albiés PINK ALBUM will be published the 19th 0f October 2011 in México, by NOISELAB RECORD LABEL .

Líneas Albiés, born in Madrid in 2003, is one of the most personal and funny bands of the current madrilian underground scene, living nowadays in Mexico City. Pablo Pómez, Marieta Rabieta did publish their first record in 2004, "Confusion", and in november 2007 they have released their second record. "El Taxidermista" is full of jumpy pop songs, hysterical post-punk and free-jazz attempts. The spanish press has defined them as Frand Ferdinand on speed, but the truth is that they gather much more influences like B-52 's , Talking Heads, Gang Of Four, neue deutsche welle de Palais schaumburg and Brian Eno's "Here Come The Warm Jets", as well as Devo, Elli et Jacno, Aviador Dro, Ze Records stuff or no wave. All conveniently recycled and adapted to that nu rave philosphy that, in the end, fits perfectly with the "movida" spirit and this excesive and barroque city that Madrid is, said Luis Lles, journalist from ROCKDELUX.

They've played in such festival as PRIMAVERA SOUND BARCELONA in 2004 and FESTIVAL INTERNACIONAL DE BENICASSIM in 2006 and they shared scene with artists like Silver Apples, Lydia Lunch, Chicks on Speed, the Sixteens, Kap Bambino, Yelle, Yann Tiersen, Editors, Tricky, Humbert Humbert, Ginferno, Die Princes Die, Non!,etc... Furthermore, they were the Pinchadiscos Albiesos and in 2008 and 2009 they at FIB, Festival Internacional de Benicassim.

THE HERESIES OF LINEAS ALBIES
(Mexico City, Autumn 2011 - by G. Santamarina.)

Certain heresies in current sonic art have been generated, albeit harmless. Líneas Albiés take heresy to the extreme, and they do not seem to fit at ease in any category previously established. We believe that their reptilian pop is linked to certain cults to forbidden forces, perhaps luciferian, according to the way they are skinning our most sacred icons. Our dear concept of pop is being subverted to a sort of witchcraft that blends irreconcilable influences. Orthodox punk is dragged to a maelstrom of paganism that also subverts some of the most delicate manifestations of contemporary culture. But, who the hell are they to exorcise our gods?

Here is a brief list of the heresies about to be committed:

Incubi coming from The Blitz circa 1977 are summoned to possess the festive Mediterranean bunches in Dadaist rituals, about to fall into the chasm.

Yoko Ono is exorcized and turned into Sharon Tate a-go-go, displaying discreet breasts and beard: a lollipop star of an ageless witches’ coven…(If she found out what’s been done to her, she would surely shave her head off).

New Order is forced against their will to go back to their enigmatic origins, and to lose their precious virginity.

Gary Numan is submitted to a transmutation that will only favor him in the World Beyond. Devo, Gang of Four and The The come out to sing Christmas carols.

Magazine is put inside the blender along with The Slits. Cosey Fani Tutti’s kinky blueberry is added: the result is a fierce potion that reanimates the overdosed dead during the Movida Madrileña.

Occult influences of unpredictable shapes become manifest. Líneas Albiés enters into a frank revolt against the conventional curse of alternative pop.

Captain Beefheart is taken to Shinjuku 1981, and transformed into a salamander executing vampiric pubescent anthems. Disco music is darkened and taken to its most fatidic extremes, turned into the music of paranormal life felines with lysergic expectations.

Ian Curtis revives, along with a pantheon of automats, and dances an apocalyptic chotis. He will eventually return to his grave, after the orgasm produced by the lecherous exploitation of his name.

Líneas Albiés are the authors of the voodoo ritual that brings the slumbering minds back to life.

Let the flamboyant and sleepwalking society be warned of the imminent contingency.
