I usually avoid live albums but this one was dead cheap and I fancied revisiting my youth. A total delight was to be had. The live medium really helps do justice to their songs which the horribly flat production on thier first couple of albums failed to do.
I'd forgotten just how good this band were. Total Control is their 'pension' song but is not at all representative of their music. They rock in the very best New Wave style - U.S. version!
16 tracks and not a duff one. My picks would be...no, let me let you discover The Motels brilliance for yourself.
