ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For too long, the garage rock circuit has been plagued by pretenders and charlatans, so the folk at Aaarrrghtt!!! Records have seen fit to bring out one of the originals, MOTO, to give Australians a true display of raw power. Much like Guided by Voices, MOTO is essentially one man, Paul Caporino, with a four track, cheap gear and a compulsive songwriting urge, backed by a revolving door of miscreants. Birthed in New Orleans in the early ‘80s and more recently based in Chicago, MOTO has, over the years, hosted some thirty odd members, released 20 cassette albums, roughly the same amount of 7’’s and half a dozen LPs. Aaarrrrghtt! has compiled a 31 strong CD, Battle of the Band, collecting songs from all eras and formats as a handy introduction/overview to MOTO. It’s lo-fi and high-adrenaline! - Peter Krbavac - BMA magazine, Canberra, Australia

As the main man behind M.O.T.O., Paul Caporino has been compulsively writing and recording songs since 1981, releasing roughly twenty albums on cassette, half a dozen LPs and a dozen 7” singles. His songs are lovingly homemade nuggets of rock’n’roll and pop brilliance, varying between home-recorded lofi tunes with a drum machine, snotty and anthemic punk rock with a full band, nutty instrumentals, all sorts of shit. Aarght! have compiled our favourite 31 songs on to one handy CD volume entitled ‘Battle of the Band’, a joke on how many line-ups Paul’s wrung his way through. - Chaos.com
