Band spotlight: Motorama

Just to prove we're not 100% centred around London, the band spotlight today shines on a three-piece from Rostov-on-Don, in southern Russia. Motorama have been playing traditional post-punk for a year, taking a heavy cue from early Joy Division among others - lead bass guitar, obtuse lyrics, and deep booming vocals accompany some very danceable drum lines.

Practically no-one reading this blog is going to be able to see them live until they get a lot bigger and do a world tour (wishful thinking? They deserve the success...). But thankfully they've put up a live version of their song 'Somersaults' on their MySpace for free download, and some really good raw demos of their other tracks are available on their main website. This is a band who you should take notice of. Они очен хорошии.
