Our frined Brian from Bowling Green Ohio has a some great shots of 800 Beloved and Spectral Morings from Saturday on Flickr.

Also, MOTOR in this week's Metro Times:

Friday, August 4th at Oslo: Few electronic groups of late have pushed the pedal as hard and fast as Motor, a duo made up of Bryan Black and Olivier Grasset. Since 2003, the London-based pair has released original material, done blue-chip remixes - including tracks by Depeche Mode, Throbbing Gristle, Marilyn Manson and T. Raumschmiere - and launched such side projects as XLover, Drugbeat and the Sick. Their newly released full-length, Klunk, is being hailed as a high-speed industrial techno vs. acid electro-house masterpiece. Some of the world's darkest and loudest club spaces have been playing the single, "Black Powder," for months. (An aside to Prince fans: When back home in Minneapolis, Bryan Black did sound design for the tiny dancer at Paisley Park studios.) Motor roars into the Motor City this Friday. Also appearing: Austrian-cum-Texan Brian Aneurysm.

Detroit gets one of only four North American dates before the guys hit the road with Nitzer Ebb and Kraftwerk. (Actually, they asked to play Detroit!) New Yorkers get MOTOR's very first US show Thursday night at the Hiro Ballroom, which is co-produced with the help of our dear friends at Phono/Enabler and Robots.
