I Like 'Lectric Motors


Loved this. Late 1979, kind of cusping 1980. At this point, we were all wondering what the 1980s were going to be like and eagerly looking out for clues to emerging trends. This wasn't quite how the '80s were to be, but I think it's brilliant, although it had no commercial success and was tucked away on John Peel.

I never saw the promo. Love the retro elements (especially those '60s style babes!) and I think this is horribly underrated, although the electric guitar is a teensy bit overdone.

But then it was 1979!

Patrick D. Martin, I salute you!
