The Revellions

The Revellions were forged amidst a haze of frustration and red neon lights in the early days of 2006. Originally a surf instrumental band, they changed their line-up and hit the Dublin music scene with all the vigour of a garage band in heat. Since then they have played to the loving patrons of London's most prestigious garage club The Dirty Water Club, Eyes Wide Open @ Glasgow Barfly, Derry's Beatnik Soul and Louie Louie in Gijon (Spain). They have also played with some bigger name bands such as The Sultans Of Ping, the knights of the new crusade and Graham Day And The Gaolers.

Ricky Spontane

Taken from their Facebook page (not that it does them justice because they're a much loved band originally from Liverpool that were too lazy to take over the world!) - "Post punk quirk with a modicum of yelp. Their sentiment and melodies will walk with you always. Hometown: Made originally in Liverpool but they now prowl the world." Taken from band website - "The Liverpudlian garage punk behemoths it's okay to snog during your first date" (NME)

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.
