Motor Eye“… a brooding cosmic jam”Music is My Master

Motor Eye have expertly crafted a debut album that populates the fertile ground between the smooth jazz-pop of Steely Dan, the noir sampledelia of DJ Shadow, and the loping, dubby grooves of Massive Attack. The result is a rather cinematic affair – a musical travelogue that takes your ears from Detroit to Tokyo via Antibes.

Motor Eye have expertly crafted a debut album that populates the fertile ground between the smooth jazz-pop of Steely Dan, the noir sampledelia of DJ Shadow, and the loping, dubby grooves of Massive Attack. The result is a rather cinematic affair – a musical travelogue that takes your ears from Detroit to Tokyo via Antibes.

Biography

Wayne Harriss and Stu Medley of Motor Eye (formerly Holding Pattern) have record collections that are scarily similar. Scary because Steely Dan and 10cc feature heavily. Combine this with years of playing together with Andy Gill as the Perth sub-country jazz/rock three piece Resin and you have the chemistry for some fine tunes, which belies the speed at which their debut album Motor Eye was made.

Motor Eye is Wayne and Stu in their semi-electronic, experimental jazz-pop guise. Andy was dragged in as session drummer and squashed down onto one track for each of the songs. Wayne wears his producer’s hat and engineer’s cap for this LP and plays all the bass (Stu’s role in Resin) while keeping an archaic Akai sampler on the go. Stu plays guitars (Wayne’s role in Resin) and keyboards. Vocal duties are shared.

Now living in separate cities and both working in the graphic media world, Wayne and Stu are trying to get their act together to record a new album.
