BUY 2 – The Pink Fairies

31 Mar

Pink Fairies - Between The Lines

The Pink Fairies: Between The Lines (BUY 2) was released in the summer of 1976, purporting to be on Bacon Records. The picture sleeve – the first produced by the label – was designed by Edward Barker, a long-time friend of the group. Stiff ordered 2,000 copies to be pressed up. Like the bulk of its early releases it didn’t trouble the charts, but this high-speed, hell-for-leather affair courtesy of the rowdy psychedelic band fronted by frazzle-haired Larry Wallis, remains a favourite among many Stiff fans. Between The Lines and its flip Spoiling For A Fight are also reflective of the raw power and old-style rock ‘n’ roll energy of many of its early releases.
