Fantastic review of Out of Control from BB Skone - Pure West Radio

A song for our times.
Absolutely classic Broken Lines.
I really love their stuff.
Fabulous bass driven rocker with some glorious lyrics.
Take no prisoners, eh?

Christmas Charity Single for 2020

We have just released our Christmas Charity Single with all proceeds going to Shelter Cymru - supporting the homeless in Wales.

Available on Bandcamp or you can donate directly through our Justgiving page.

We are determined to close 2020 on a positive note by releasing our 2020 charity Christmas single. Christmas is a time of giving, caring and sharing and no amount of Covid-19 can shut that down! It is currently believed that 90,000 Welsh residents are in danger of losing their homes in coming months. Homelessness is a long standing problem anyway but job and income losses this year have compounded the situation and winter months always place a huge strain on shelter charities. Whatever we can raise with this record we know can help to make a difference

We spent two weeks working in our production suite to write and record the song which very deliberately emphasises the positivity of Christmas. We decided to write one that was an upbeat reflection of this time of year. After such a difficult 2020 we thought we'd try and provide a bit of light relief by highlighting all the things that make the season a happy one and we hope everyone can get a little bit of a warm feeling from it!

Thank you :-)

SoundBoard Album Review - Liberation

Broken-Lines is Jack Jackson, Mark Briscoe and David Wellan and together they've recorded an album that stands out from the generic, mediocre trash that gets labelled as rock these days.

Liberation is ten original tracks and has it's roots in the much maligned pysch-prog mould but with enough modern touches and punk influences to lift it from that magnificent subgenre and off into the stratosphere of legendary Welsh rock.

These guys are taking no prisoners on this one and rightly so, you're either along for the ride or you can get off the fuckin' bus.

Broken Lines have been a part of the Pembrokeshire music scene for some time and along with Sendelica, are making waves that are far reaching, so sit up and take notice because these guys are here to stay. Get your copy now. MK

Black Space / Cellophane Killer / Darkest Hour / I Wonder / It's Your Time / Mannequin Heaven / Plain To See / Plug Me In / Running Free / Sweet Lips

We' just had the best review from Steve at The Cellar Bar, Cardigan...

These boys are smokin'..... We had a Saturday night with the amazing Broken Lines in The Cellar, Cardigan. I've watched the band develop over the last couple of years, and I love what they have become. We appreciate great quality original music here.... especially if it rocks; and that is what we got: thick punky riffs and strong emphatic down strokes, driving drums melded and weaving with heavy bass..... I'm not sure what their influences are, but I can hear a flavour of the early 80's New Wave scene, with perhaps a later Indy Rock influence too: some fast paced chord progressions and a slightly less urgent lyrical delivery. It is difficult to get that singing at one pace and doubling up with a fast downward stroke on the strings method, but David nails it. There were elements of the heavier side of sixties Psychedelia too (enter: the drummer), and perhaps I picked up a little sense of The Doors and The Kinks in there.... maybe a bit of early Zep... nice to see a bass man, with a bit of animation, filling in the gaps with boom: powerful interplay between these two.... anyways: we danced and they delivered.... awesome originals from this fabulous power trio: if you get a chance, go and see them.... bangin'.....

Steve, The Cellar, Cardigan.

Great review from our recent appearance at Dr. Sardonicus's Midwinter Night's Dream Psychedelic Festival, Cardigan.
By Gregg McKella Read the review |  Gonzo magazine

The bits about us:
"Opening the festival, were local Pembrokeshire psyche dynamos BROKEN LINES, consisting of David Wellan on guitar and vocals, Jack Jackson on drums, loops and samples, and Mark Briscoe on bass. They describe themselves as upbeat, energetic music with punk, rock, and psychedelia, and their multifaceted sound crosses the likes of The Clash, New Model Army, The Stranglers, to appropriately the Pink Fairies, to Pink Floyd which certainly came to mind as they kicked their set off with solid psychedelic instrumental rock opener 'Running Free' followed by equally rocking 'Mannequin Heaven'. The set then moved into more psyche-krautrock numbers with 'I Wonder', 'Darkest Hour' and then their 10 minute dark moody track 'Black Space'. Loads of light and shade, dark and moody with dynamics on this epic number. They finished up playing tracks from their newly-released live demo EP: pulsing psyche rock-out number 'Sweet Lips' and then ending with a long teasing ambient track, 'Indian Summer', that finally broke out in full psychedelic jam out, nicely ending their set. This band is new to me and I can draw parallels to my own band Paradise 9. I hope we'll be seeing more of them on the festival circuit."

Thanks Gregg, its great ;-)

Enjoy from 7pm @purewestradio.com

Listen again...



Love the response at the end of the track!

"What a great song!

All sorts of things going on there, it reminded me of classic German Krautrock courtesy of Neu!, a bit of New Order filtering the Velvet Underground and most of all, the crazed, New York, avant-garde, rockabilly of the late Alan Vega (aka Suicide)

That's what's good about it, music has a wonderful emotional impact on you, each of us feels it differently, but we all feel something."
