BLACK LININGBLACK LINING from Buenos Mayence aka Mainz, Germany are a punk rock band that loiters somewhere between a grungy version of Lookout-era Green Day and Bad Religion on a poppy day. It’s fast and fun, and even though they might not want to incite the next street riot with every song, misogynists and all other kinds of dim-witted dumbasses better go party someplace else because Black Lining take no prisoners.
The three individuals behind the band are not new to music. Singer and guitarist Seba used to play with his pop punk band Euforia back in Argentina, drummer Tom has played the big stages before with his rock band earotation and bassist Cornelius rakes in big bucks as DIY promoter Keep it a Secret to finance his vinyl addiction (that’s yours truly, correct).
Their first EP “Twist my Arm” was published as KSR012 in July 2018, and after a copy made its way across the pond to get a great review by Razorcake fanzine, Drunk Dial Records asked them to record the song “Now I wanna be a Good Boy” for the Corona-inspired Ramones compilation “Stay Home”. They are recording their first proper record as you are reading this.
