If M.O.T.O.’s Paul Caporino doesn’t consider his band a punk band, I wonder what M.O.T.O. would sound like if he did. Chances are it might sound like The Fur Coats. Take Caporino’s distilled-pop-songwriting-savant-style mixed with salt of the earth, poppy, Chicago-style punk, and you have something pretty close to The Fur Coats. Contains ex-members of Das Kapital, Direct Hit!, and No Empathy.
