    Never really listened to The Motels, but just checked out a show in Ann Arbor on a whim. Wow! I don't know what I was expecting, but what I got was a hell of a great show.

    I love Shock, Little Robbers and All 4 One albums. They're veery smooth, dreamy and easy to listen to. The two albums before and the ones after are a little rougher. Comes down to preference, I'm sure.

    Only 450000 plays. A bit disappointing but this is a very contemporary place

    I still love to the two hits, I expected so much more. Martha Davis built the band then killed it, shame on her.
