1985 Motels Demos

These song demos, recorded in Martha's garage and at Hillslope Studios in the San Fernando Valley, were among the many songs Martha wrote that didn't make the final cut for the Motels' sixth and final album, "Shock." The only copy of these demos is a cassette I recently found, from May 1985, so the sound quality reflects this low-tech source. The players on the tracks are Martha Davis (vocals), Brian Glascock (drums), Marty Jourard (keyboards, tenor sax), Michael Goodroe (bass), Scott Thurston (keyboards), Richie Zito (guitar).

All songs copyright 1985 by Martha Davis, all rights reserved.
