Kock’s Motel is a dirty, loud-as-fuck rock’n’roll band. Inspired by the raw power of The Stooges, Queens of the Stone Age’s monolithic simplicity and the Dionysian lust of The Doors, the threesome serves its own brand of hyper-physical, no-surrender amphetamine blues.
On guitar and vocals the band features a front man named Kock, a bipolar presence seamlessly shifting between narcissistic dandy and menacing fury in the blink of an eye. Mincing, sneering, howling, convulsing, attacking his fuzz guitar like he’s performing an unwinnable exorcism, while the unrelenting rhythm section’s bullwhip drums and locomotive bass keep marching on.
Together they create a live experience that’s actually worthy of the term “show”. Sweaty noise orgies, obsessively chasing the next punch in the face until only distortion remains.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Kock’s Motel!
