Formed in the late 1980s as an alternative metal band (they picked their name after seeing the Russ Meyer film of the same name as part of a Russ Meyer triple bill), Motorpsycho soon developed a unique blend of grunge, heavy metal and indie rock. They have soon started incorporating the sonic noise experiments of associated member Deathprod. The hugely ambitious, progressive double album “Demon Box” (1993) followed a series of low-profile EPs and albums. Band earned a nomination for a Norwegian Grammy, and secured a loyal following in Germany, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands as well as in Scandinavia.
The 1990s was an extremely productive era for the band, releasing new material almost every year, and enjoying critical acclaim for each album. With the 2000 album “Let Them Eat Cake”, Motorpsycho suddenly took huge steps away from their noisy hard rock roots, opting instead for a smoother, jazz-tinged approach to the songwriting and recording process. They kept this technique for the subsequent releases, ‘’Phanerothyme’’ and ‘’It’s A Love Cult’’.
To celebrate their 20th anniversary, the band released a vinyl-only album, “Child of the Future”. Album was recorded by Steve Albini at the beginning of August 2009.
In a January 2, 2017 news update on their official home page, the band announced Swedish drummer Tomas Järmyr to be the third permanent member of Motorpsycho. Together, they have recorded “The Tower” in Los Angeles and Joshua Tree (at the famous recording studio, Rancho de la Luna) , which was released on September 8 the same year.
