The Motels: Booked Solid
Don Snowden, Los Angeles Times, 29 April 1979
MOST LOCAL BANDS have drawn inspiration from the classic rock bands of the '60s notably the Rolling Stones and the Who. The chief exception is the Motels, a quintet that combines the commercial catchiness of the Cars, the nervous energy of Talking Heads and Roxy Music's dramatic, darkly romantic aura.
