No matter who he's on stage or recording with at the moment, PAUL CAPORINO alone has always been New Orleans based legends M.O.T.O., aka MASTERS OF THE OBVIOUS. He formed the band in 1981, and has been playing an infectious blend of garage, '70s punk rock and Brill Building worthy pop ever since. When the band didn't record or play as much as Paul would have liked those first few years, he turned to his 4-track. He put down all vocals, guitar and bass tracks over a toy, Mattel Synsonics drum machine. Initially, these recordings were only planned as demos of new songs, but Paul was so satisfied with the results, he decided to release them to the public. M.O.T.O. would go on to release more than fifteen cassette albums from 1985-1999. Each one filled with an abundance of dick jokes and social commentary alike. They were met with rave reviews from indie 'zines, which helped Paul build a rabid, worldwide fan base. BOLT! was released as the second M.O.T.O. cassette. The tracks were recorded on Lent in 1986, and the final edit was "The Best of Lent Tapes" or simply BOLT! The lead off track "Dick About It" is a fan favorite and is still played regularly in live sets to this day. A vinyl pressing of BOLT! was released in Germany as a very limited vinyl pressing in the mid-'90s, but that's been tough to find since. When we decided to put BOLT! back in print 27 years after its original release, we had M.O.T.O.'s head producer GARRETT HAMMOND remaster the album from Paul's original master tapes for maximum (minimum?) lo-fi bliss! That's 20 songs in about 47minutes of classic M.O.T.O. pressed on thick black vinyl, in an edition of 500 copies.
