What Happened To Pub Rock # 11

I thought by myself to finish this little series with the last post. But I remember still some bands that would be worth to featured in this series. One of them were The Motors which was formed by former members of Ducks Deluxe Nick Garvey and Andy McMaster. After a short period of existing they got a new guitarist called Bram Tchaicovsky (what a name!). Trained by many appearances in a lot of pubs the released their first record called '1' in 1977. It was the time when punk and new wave started to open the ears of a lot of people. And The Motors released a record with classic Rock and Roll or how it was called later PowerPop. Dancing The Night Away is a guitar dominated song added with some good voices and harmony singing. I loved them songs because they had the best of 'two worlds'. The structures of guitar based songs with hooks and empathy. It was a record that showed a lot of folks how new music could sound.

Enjoy and have a good week.
