The Motels: Careful (Capitol) ***

Sandy Robertson, Sounds, 5 July 1980

IF YOU'RE a Motels fan don't get mad at me, just take it as an indication of the way interest has rapidly curved away from them that nobody else at Sounds was willing to get down and review this second album except me, who didn't exactly go ape over their debut many issues back. Come to think of it, there probably aren't that many Motels fans in England...but for you who await the progress reports, I'll try real hard.
