Performer Notes
  • The Motors includes: Bram Tchaikovsky, Andy McMaster, Nick Garvey.
  • The Motors were a good old-fashioned singles group at a time when singles were looked down upon as a form of musical expression, and at least two of their singles--the exhilarating "Dancing the Night Away" and the moody, synth-sweetened "Airport," which sounds like a punk-influenced 10cc--are all-time power pop classics. Because of this emphasis on singles, the Motors' three albums are scattershot, and the 17-track compilation AIRPORT is by far the most essential Motors release. Pub-rock vets Nick Garvey, Andy McMasters and (for the first two albums) Bram Tchaikovsky were unafraid to reference earlier songs; the joyous "Forget About You" is a dead ringer for the Grass Roots' Gary Zekley-penned "Sooner Or Later"; less enchantingly, "Love and Loneliness" cops Steve Stills' horrid "Love the One You're With." Garvey in particular is a terrific pop singer, and the best tracks here are as good as British power pop gets.
