've never 'eard of 'em. I don't think the Kaiser Chiefs are much older than I am.
The first Motors album included a minor hit single with "Dancing The Night Away", a perfect blueprint for the great "Everyday I Love You Less And Less". The song structure and the production are so close to each other that I cannot believe in an accident considering a time gap of some 30 years inbetween them.
The other fairly big hit The Motors had was "Airport", a wonderful, slightly bombastic midtempo pop tune which I am sure you will have come across at some point. On a smaller scale it was their "I don't like Mondays" minus the deeper meaning.
And I want to believe that a light's shining through somehow
