Line Up

Album: Elastica (1994)
Charted: 20
  • John Harris said of this song in his book The Last Party: "'Line Up' was a brittle joke at the expense of some unnamed starstruck hanger-on, whose life revolved around the parade of groups who passed through the pages of the music papers. Its title came from Justine Frischmann's wry observation that the press was in the habit of placing groups on its conveyer belt, well knowing that all but a few would quickly topple off."
  • This was the first song the band wrote together. It entered the UK charts at #20 and gave Elastica their first appearance on Top Of The Pops. >>
