The Motives (1983)October 28, 2009
Year: 1983 (article)
Style: New Wave
Home: Chatham Ontario
Marty Wright – Guitar
Tim Gilbert – Bass
Marty Spacil – Drums
The band plays covers and original music and is currently the only New Wave band in Chatham. All members are in their early twenties.
Wright moved here from Toronto about five years ago and played in local rock bands before forming this outfit.
The band plays about 45% original music while the rest is covers of new wave British bands. They do play a few beach style songs and some classics.
It is brought to my attention the band was circa 19080-81, but the newspaper clipping was in 1983, unless I documented it wrong.
