M.O.T.O.: Golden Quarter Hour of MOTO: 7” EP

The low-rent genius and Crusher-like good looks of Paul Caporino returns for eight songs recorded on four tracks pressed onto seven inches of vinyl, which is 1.143 songs per inch, 0.875 inches per song, and 0.571 tracks per inch per song. To keep things streamlined, Mr. Caporino has eliminated some of the clutter of past recordings, including backing musicians, recording studios, and verses, delivering his clever and hopelessly catchy bits directly into the listener’s nervous system with a modicum of fillers and buffering agents. Song subjects include the usual fare: Rock ((“Rock Rock Rock Rock Rock Rock Rock the Nation” “Dial M for Rock”)), pussy ((“Tight Feline Vegetation”)), and the great unknowable ((“AC7YIAR”)). “Suck on this lump of coal and make me a diamond?”Balderdash! This diamond comes pre-sucked! BEST SONG: “Rock Rock Rock Rock Rock Rock Rock the Nation” BEST SONG TITLE: Yeah, you guessed it: “Rock Rock Rock Rock Rock Rock Rock the Nation” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Rise up in dismay, this record clocks in at barely fourteen minutes!!!
