M.O.T.O.

MOTO stands for Masters Of The Obvious. Pretty much it's Paul and whoever is playing with him at the time. Some people think Paul's lyrics are too dirty but most people think they are funny. MOTO write songs that are catchy. That's all that really matters. It all got started in the early 80's in New Orleans. But then Paul moved somewhere else. MOTO have released dozens of albums, some cassette only, some CDs, some are little vinyl discs like this one. You've probably never heard of MOTO. It's a good thing that now you know.

The Nine Tails

The Nine Tails are the product of gritty blues infused classics such as Led Zeppelin and The Stooges, combined with the essence of contemporary East London. At first listen The Nine Tails sound more like they fell out of a garage in Detroit in 1970 rather than a cramped flat in Hackney circa 2010. But with wall-to-wall harmonies, charmingly filthy vocals and what could possibly be described as obscene guitar licks, The Nine Tails do as many an Englishman before – taking the quintessentially American art form of Rock N Roll and infusing it with British swagger.

Slug Guts

Slug Guts hail from the barren, heat stricken confines of Brisbane, Australia, a town as desolate as it is depressing and suburban. Slug Guts began when four degenerates had little else to do but form a band in the tradition of Pussy Galore, X (Australia not L.A.), and Birthday Party. In the first four months of the band Slug Guts recorded their first LP Down on the Meat which was released on Stained Circles Records (Jay Reatard, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Dirtbombs).
