1. Fine Lines is a folk influenced rock group hailing from Tokyo. In 2003 Kazuya Hirabayashi (former member of the band Husking Bee and voice actor for the main character of the famous anime show BECK) formed Fine Lines with the help of George Kurosawa (lead guitar and backing vocals) and Yutaka Katayama (drums). Tetsuya Kudo, the ex-bassist of Husking Bee also took part in the activities of Fine Lines until 2008 when he quit the band. First they started out as an ‘all-acoustic’ band, but at that time they didn’t have any intention of going major. However, when Husking Bee disbanded in 2005 the opportunity was given, so they put more effort into this new band and developed a unique music style that mixes upbeat rock with ‘folkish’/western guitar sounds. The most recent result of this is a full-length album that was released in 2007 titled ‘Substratosphere’. 2. Fine Lines was also a punk band from DC.
