Motorpsycho - "X-3 (Knuckleheads in Space)"
(Rune Grammofon RSI 2094, 7")
From Aural Innovations #41 (October 2010)
This is a limited edition 7” release from the Norwegian band Motorpsycho. It features a unique version of X-3 that was originally featured on the Heavy Metal Fruit LP. The B side is exclusive to this 7” and called I.C.U. (Boinganoid). X-3 is an uptempo track and Bent is singing with a lot of passion and drive and it's great to hear the band rocking out like this. The mid-section also has a strumming acoustic guitar layer and some spacey keyboards and a cool guitar solo. They really cram a lot of cool stuff into this short 4 minute track. ICU is another uptempo track with a pretty hard guitar riff for MP. Shah and Bent trade off vocals on this one before they sort of jam it out a bit. Great 7” from a band that has been around for 20 years and is making their best music ever now!
