Album Notes
"Masters of the Obvious, better known as M.O.T.O., is the best rock 'n roll band many people have never heard. Seriously. Anyone familiar with the original tapes to this record will confirm it as a KBD home recorded classic. Recorded in 1985 this is lo-fi, bubblegum garage rock soundtrack for sweethearts hanging around the park after dark and taking their time walking home. If you aren't instantly in love the second this hits your stereo, I'm afraid you may already be dead." - CRIMINAL IQ RECORDS (USA)

"Masters Of The Obvious (or M.O.T.O), is one of the best bands in mixing punk, pop and wave. Formed in New Orleans in 1981 by Paul Caporino, the lineup of the band has seen many changes over the years, with Caporino being the only consistent member. This is the reissue of their first tape dated 1985!" - LADY KINKY KARROT (Italy)

"Reason Todd Taylor has a well-deserved spot in my “Hallowed Halls of People Who Are Infinitely Cool” number #1,697: He introduced me to the charms of M.O.T.O., way back when we was both writing for Flipside. To paraphrase Renee Zellweger, they had me at “Dick About It,” the very first song Todd played, and that initial spin has resulted in “Dance Dance Dance to the Radio” being one of my all-time songs with only two chords in it. Dunno where this album fits into their pantheon (by the demo-quality sound of it, I’m guessin’ pretty early on), but it has all the things that makes their stuff so cool—strong hooks, smart aleck pop music references, and a lack of self-importance that cuts low the posturing and vaults up the rockin’. You want pop punk like the Queers, or Blink 182 or whoever else is the big shit this week? Fuck that. These guys are much, much better." –Jimmy Alvarado, RAZORCAKE (USA)
