1001 7" Records You Must Own No.46 Mainline – Black Honey / Once More (Because Of You)
Bit of an obscure one here, Mainline were an Irish band who released this single and another EP called ‘Where The Ghosts Meet’ and that’s apparently all she wrote, however it appears some members went on to form a band called The Brothers Movement who I plan to check out. First look at the sleeve and it brings to mind Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and once the needle hits you’re not far off ‘Black Honey’ is fuzzed up rock’n’roll that wouldn’t have been out of place on the first BRMC album and should have gained the band more recognition than it did. On the flipside we have ‘Once More (Because Of You)’ less BRMC more of a bluesy rock feel and a great song that makes me think of early 22-20s which is definitely no bad thing, after listening to this again I’ll definitely be checking out The Brothers Movement to see if its more of the same.
