The Motors Roar Back

Jim Green, Trouser Press, July 1980

THE INNER sleeve of the current Motors album, Tenement Steps, boldly states "The Motors are Andy McMaster [and] Nick Garvey." A demarcating "with" adds a rhythm section (bassist Martin Ace, drummers Terry Williams and Michael Desmarais), but they are clearly hirelings (guest artists, if you're in a charitable mood) – respectable and well-chosen but distinct from the bearers of the band's title.

Total word count of piece: 1727
