Motorpsycho - Barracuda
(Stickman / Indigo)
rating: 4 out of 5

Just how cool are Motorpsycho ! This time the Norwegians roll out into the acid lands somewhere around 1973 mixing up classic self indulgent starfucker stones with mean metallic blues that you just don't mess with. Way out beyond the imaginations of all the others, Queens of the Stone Age would kill to be this cool. For those familiar with their previous orgasmic qualities, this time Motorpsycho are over on their psychedelic hard rock trip rather than their Van De Graaf prog vibe outs. They're the Brain Jonestown Massacre for those mean amphetamine-fuelled moments when the red bats are flying at your Simoan attorney, they're the blackest rebel motorcycle club out there. Out on Motorpsycho's highway all the trucks bark and there are indeed two ways on every road. Forget Nebula, Kyuss and all that stuff, this is the real X- factor laced shit.
