MOTOR BOYS MOTOR (Buy CDs by this artist)
Motor Boys Motor (UK Albion) 1982

Strange sense of humor: the cover and enclosed poster is a freak-show photo of a black man's face with lots of little snakes coming out of his mouth. The foursome (two guitars, bass, drums) do a song called "Here Comes the Flintstones." They should have done the show's actual theme — this ditty ain't happening. Nothing much here is, despite the energetic punk-cum-boogie musical mode and Beefheartian overtones. Interesting, but doesn't come near justifying its existence. (Half of MBM later organized the Screaming Blue Messiahs and put a song called "I Wanna Be a Flintstone" on their second album.)
