Angry young men?!

Germany's renowned major free magazine for Independent Music INTRO celebrates its 15th anniversary these days. To commemorate the anniversary Intro makes historic back-issues & articles available, e.g. issue #1 is available as pdf-download here -- the contrast to today's high-gloss magazine couldn't be more apparent. Intro has always been very Motorpsycho-friendly, in fact it's one of the few print-mags who recognises the genius of our favourite band. Recent articles included a detailed report about multiple shows of the spring tour 2006 written by devoted Psychonaut Thorsten Schmidt.

Among the featured historic arcticles is a cover story from January 1995 about the now epochal release of "Timothy's monster", back then quite a puzzling move for many fans & consumers but certainly the beginning of establishing Motorpsycho as the unpredictable & ever-changing cult-act who masterfully delivers in every musical facet there could be! While the article & interview have been well available in the UnOffs excellent media archive -- check it out! a treasure trove for information about the band -- the cover-shot hasn't been available. Intro has put it online now: Motorpsycho 1994, the five-piece band (is that really Deathprod in the background?)!

Thanks to Steven Adam for the heads-up & link to the article, the cover picture rocks!
