M.O.T.O. live in Japan in 2010.

Frontman Paul Caporino formed M.O.T.O in New Orleans back in 1981. Over the course of the 30 years that followed, the band has featured an ongoing rotation of backing members, ranged from two to four piece outfits, and relocated from New Orleans to Chicago to Rhode Island and back to New Orleans. Throughout it all, Paul's adolescent sensibilities have remained intact as have his simplistic yet suspiciously moving lyrics.

M.O.T.O. have toured the world over and have played alongside bands like Buzzcocks, Flaming Lips, Superchunk, Smashing Pumpkins, Galaxie 500, The Jesus Lizard, Zero Boys, The Germs, Naked Raygun... Their records have been distributed on various labels worldwide and the band was recognized by the legendary John Peel. Visit their Wikipedia page for further resume points.

No Way Street is M.O.T.O.'s first full-length release in five years. It is being distributed in Japan only, remainder copies will be sold at the link above while supplies last.
