Supporting Acts: Medication, Pools Are Nice M.O.T.O-Masters of the Obvious
Masters of the Obvious (more commonly known as M.O.T.O. or MOTO), is a New Orleans-based garage punk band. Formed in 1981 by Paul Caporino, the lineup of the band has seen many changes over the years, with Caporino being the only consistent member. The band has recorded several albums for Chicago-based record label Criminal IQ Records. As of 2009, M.O.T.O. has existed in some form for 28 years. Over that time, the band has undergone numerous lineup changes, but it has always functioned primarily as a platform for Paul Caporino's songwriting, a repertoire that includes hundreds of songs in a variety of genres such as pop, punk rock, metal, soul, noise music, garage punk and new wave.
