ABOUT

Motorcycle Display Team is an alt rock and roll band that makes songs full of melodic vocal twists and driving rhythms you just have to dance to.

To date they’ve released two EPs (‘The Crayon Masterpiece’ 2009 and ‘Letters of Last Resort’ 2015), one LP (Captatio Benevolentiae, 2012) and they have constantly toured the UK, Ireland and beyond since 2008.

MDT is constantly praised for an honest, candid and energetic live act from which they wring every drop of pathos.

They have always impressed at festivals, receiving some lovely reviews. Bowie, Zeppelin, Buckley, QOTSA and the Manics are artists that frequently crop up by comparison and the band are very happy to be placed in such company.

MDT is Steve Hinds (vocals, guitar) and Morgan Condon (drums).

MDT’s style is broad, but they build songs using soaring vocals, melodic hooks and unexpected ticks, all woven together in tight rhythm and delivered with a wink and a snarl. Steve’s pen doesn't discriminate. His lyrics tackle themes from kidnap to creationism, mental illness to misanthropy, patriotism to penis envy. The songs are often reflective of the trials of life but always engaging. All this weight is tempered with a dark sense of humour which runs vividly throughout the songs.

Notable achievements for MDT include Absolute Radio's “Unsigned Band Of The Week”, plays on BBC 6 Music Introducing, XFM, BBC London 94.9, Music Week, Right Chord Music’s “Band Of The Week”, Emerging Icons, God Is In The TV and Room Thirteen coverage. Also, their music has been featured on TV shows in the UK and USA.

In 2015, MDT had the honour of touring in support of legendary The Crazy World of Arthur Brown followed by My Life Story. These tours resulted in MDT’s live reputation spreading and a buzz continuing to grow around them.
