The 1990s garage punk eruption was already totally on when this thing arrived in my mitts, but it was no less of an upside-the-head wallop for its tardiness. THE MOTARDS were an Austin, TX quintet who played stupid-simple, "learning to play" rock of the highest order, and who never made one this good again (though their follow-up 45 was still pretty hot). Total gargles-with-gravel, treble-heavy, DWARVES-style room-clearing punk rock and roll. I played it over and over and over that year (what was it, 1994?), and now, fourteen years later, I’d like to provide you with the same opportunity.
