Motorchrist - Greetings From The Bonneville Salt Flats

If ever there was a group that could have been the result of a tragic rock n’ roll hybrid of The Ramones and Black Sabbath (God forbid), that band could only be Motochrist. Formed on June 6, 1998, primarily as a way to get free drinks, the band rapidly became a force to be reckoned with as a result of their electrifying and often destructive live shows. Singer/bassist Danny Nordahl (New York Loose, Faster Pussycat, Stiv Bators, The Throbs) and lead guitarist Marc Diamond (New York Loose, The Dwarves, Blister) teamed up with local gunslinger Ricky Vodka (Humble Gods, Doggy Style) to forge a unique sound that blended pop with power. Motochrist began their sonic assault with cuts on compilation albums such as The Best of the Cadillac Club and Dr. Wu Compilation Volume 2 (available through Dr. Wu Records) which gave the public their first taste of The Christ. Their lineup solidified with the addition of drummer Tom Brayton (The Dwarves, Psychotica), Motochrist hit the studio to create 666 Pack, an homage to all that is rock. With themes running the gamut from Evel Knievel to the most common of voices, 666 Pack is an album which only Motochrist could have made. The volume might crush you, but the hooks stay deeply imbedded in the brain; from the hook laden chorus of “To Evel” to the bone crushing stomp of “Dig Your Hole,” no rock n’ roll stone is left unturned. Don’t confuse them with the angry frat-boy “New Metal” currently poisoning our youth, Motochrist take over where The Dead Boys and AC/DC left off. Tom departed from the band and Chad Stewart (Faster Pussycat, every other band in L.A.) stepped up to the riser. Although Chad has been with Moto for a few years now, he is still known as "The New Guy" to many. With the upcoming release of Greetings from The Bonneville Salt Flats on Heatslick Records, Motochrist plan to tour as much as possible and bring mayhem to a town near you. If this sounds good to you, then come see Motochrist when they play a club near you. If not your cup of tea, then tell someone you hate.
