Psycho Motel Vol.1 (2010-2011) FREE COMPILATION!

At Psycho Motel IV: “Gods & Monsters Party”, shortly before the end of  Psy Mo’s residence at now mythical ‘creative space’ Don’t Drop the Dumbells, we compiled a killer mixtape featuring almost every band who had played at Psycho Motel to date! The night before the show, we burned as many copies as we could manage onto CD-R – hastily photocopied a bunch of sleeves (re-using Becky Boneshaker’s artwork from the very first Psy Mo poster) and handed them out on the door to anyone who would have ‘em…

The comp was jolly well received, of course, as it contained some fine and varied examples of dirty garage (Dick Venom, Kid Voodoo); dark psychedaelia (Black Moth, El Toro!); modern rockabilly (Raw Bones, X Ray Cat Trio); electro punk (Louis Lingg, Bad Taste Barbies); and the virtually unclassifiable (Long Finger Bandits, Phlegmings the Singin’ Bellboy); plus an exclusive, unreleased track from the mighty Zombina and the Skeletones, making it a perfect time-capsule of Psycho Motel’s first era (2010-2011)! 

That was then, however, and this is most definitely now… Arrive early to Psy Mo XI: “Enchantment Under the Sea Dance” (Friday 30th March at the Kazimier), and you’ll receive a FREE copy of Psycho Motel Vol.2 – “The Second Comping”, which will no doubt be twice the classic that the first volume was!
