CROW "YOUR MOTIVE" . . . . AN AUSSIE BAND THAT DESERVED INFINITELY MORE EXPOSURE THAN THEY ULTIMATELY RECEIVED AT THE TIME . . . . DESCRIBED BY MANY CRITICS AS ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL ACTS OF THIER DAY, THEY RELEASED A HANDFUL OF CUTTING EDGE, LEFT FIELD, SEETHING, SONIC ATTACK ALBUMS IN THE FIRST HALF OF THE 90's . . . . ALAS, THEY PROVED TOO DAUNTING FOR MIDDLE ORSTRAYA . . . . KILLER VINTAGE DRAG ACTION CLIP TOO.
It's always the way, those artists deserving of broader public acclaim are so far outside the parameters of what most sheep are capable of perceiving that recognition invariably comes all too late, by that stage they're either dead or disintegrated . . . . even though these guys have been playing again of late, the real opportunity was snuffed out long ago by a music buying public with its collective taste in its arse and a pathetic history of avoiding any kind of artistic endeavour that requires even a modicum of thought . . . . the fact that the highly combustible bass player, Jim Woff, was a close friend of mine at school is utterly beside the fucking point.
