Damn, I thought this was the Motor who issued those amazingly quirky minimal techno 12"s for audio.nl a while back. This Motor (the French Mr. No and the American Bryan Black) trade in bulbous, thuggish, big-room techno that leaves thick tire tracks across your back (lapsed industrial fans will dig it, too). Their debut album, Klunk, largely lacks subtlety; you can imagine action/thriller-oriented filmmakers selecting tracks like "Black Powder," "Stuka Stunt," and "Spazm" for high-intensity scenes. And for that function, Motor is masterful. On Klunk, the duo essentially takes the filthy, aggressive knarz techno patented by Shitkatapult to the mega-club-and perhaps to the bank.
