Motorpsycho returns to their rock 'n' roll roots.
The Trondheim band Motorpsycho was recently awarded the "Alarm-award" for the best rockalbum for
last year's "Let Them Eat Cake", even if that was an album that mostly explored new and
exciting "pop grounds" for the band. Now on this (album) there are the songs that did not fit
in on "... Cake". Seven hard rock tunes of vintage Motorpsycho class. Titles like Heartbreaker,
Rattlesnake and Up 'Gainst The Wall (High Time) and guitarriffs and melodies make us believe
that this is a nod to the old heroes of hard- and psychedelic rock. At the same time the band is
creative enough to make exciting music out of it.
Climax: "Dr. Hoffmann's Bicycle".
