EXCLUSIVELY DISTRIBUTED IN EUROPE BY BLAST OF SILENCE:
No matter who he's on stage or recording with at the moment, Paul Caporino alone has always been M.O.T.O., aka Masters of the Obvious. He formed the band in 1981 in New Orleans and has been playing an infectious blend of garage, '70s punk rock and Brill Building worthy pop ever since.
M.O.T.O. released more than fifteen cassette albums from 1985-1999. Virtually all were fuzzy 4-track cassette recordings with Paul layering guitar, bass and vocals over a crude drum machine. The lyrics are filled with dick jokes, love themes and smart-assed social commentary. The music is lo-fi, hook laden pop. Familiar at the first listen, and it only grows on you from there.
MOTOERECTUS was released in very limited quantities in 1987. This album represents some of M.O.T.O.'s last 4-track recordings before relocating to Boston. Although it's still showing much of the New Orleans/early years goofiness, there are a handful of tracks hinting at the slightly more serious pop sensibilities to come with M.O.T.O.'s '90s and beyond releases.
Rerun Records is pleased to bring you this classic recording for the very first time on vinyl. Remastered by M.O.T.O.'s head producer Garret Hammond from the original master tapes for maximum fuzziness. Pressed on thick black vinyl in a limited edition of 500 copies.
