The Motors: The Motors Show

Harry Doherty, Melody Maker, 28 October 1978

UNE NUIT A PARIS...The intention behind visiting France with the Motors seemed a good one: the circumspection of their intriguingly varied curriculum could be more easily viewed and put in perspective. They were in Paris to mime 'Airport' (number 2 in the French charts) on a top television show. This, you see, is to be the final act in a play so thick with plots that it makes Dallas (Tuesday, BBC 1) look as riveting as Stars On Sunday.
