The origins of the Motorcycle Boy go back to Scotland 1985 when a band named after a Fire Engines b-side were formed - Meat Whiplash.

They signed to Creation Records releasing one single for that label (which was produced by The Jesus & Mary Chain). In 1987 the band recruited vocalist Alex Taylor from The Shop Assistants and changed their name to The Motorcycle Boy (from a character in the movie Rumblefish).

  • I thought the unreleased album was called 'Scarlet' - what's this Popsicle advertised? Anyone know - there's no info on the link? There's a Peel session kicking around too. I just love Alex Taylor :D
  • Man I hope the unreleased album somehow sees the light of day.
