Gig of the week: Motorama

Written by

This week has been a regular gigpocolypse what with shows from Danish legends Mew, British soul songstress Lianne La Havas and, uh, OneRepublic.

But wait! There’s still one more awesome gig to come in the shape of Motorama. You may think there’s a palatable dearth of bands dedicated to carrying the post-punk mantle of British bands Joy Division, New Order, My Bloody Valentine. Head about 3,500 miles east of the UK’s shores, however, to the sleepy Russian port village of Rostov-on-Don and that’s where you’ll find Motorama, one of the most exciting post-punk revival bands we’ve heard for years. And, it’s not just them. Soviet Soviet, Pinkshinyultrablast, Human Tetris – it’s staggering how many ridiculously accomplished bands there are in Russia that have picked up the torch and run with it. It’s wonderful that Hongkongers can get an earful of this exciting Russian movement when the band come to Mom Live House tomorrow night.

Friday 22 September, Mom Live House, B/F, Seven Seas Shopping Centre, 117-121 King’s Road, North Point. $280.
