M.O.T.O. - Kill MOTO CD. M.O.T.O. is the true mark of quality in terms of off-kilter poppy punk rock. Just listen to “I Hate My Fucking Job” off of ‘Kill MOTO’. It’s super catchy with buzzing guitars, ramshackle lyrics and will pop in your head at the most opportune moments when you’re at work and having a bad day. M.O.T.O, which stands for Masters of the Obvious, takes a brave ear and requires that you’ve got a good sense of humor. M.O.T.O. is equal parts punk rock renegade with the on-par pop brilliance that the Beach Boys had, a sweaty leather jacket and balls as big as King Kong’s. Hits are plentiful on this one, but out of the seventeen tracks, my favorites have to be “The Chicks Can Tell,” the aforementioned “I Hate My Fucking Job,” and “We Are the Rats.” All are on par with the best of M.O.T.O., “Crystallize My Penis” included. M.O.T.O. does a great job of reminding us that we can’t take life to seriously and that a sense of humor is as invaluable as beer and fun. Recommended.
