The Motors

Dave Schulps, Trouser Press, December 1977

SO YOU THINK Stiff are the only one allowed to go slightly batty with their advertising, eh? Well guess again. These Motors boys got 'em beat by a country mile. How? By getting dead and near dead (?) world-class celebrities to advertise their product. Unfunny you say. Maybe, but a lot of morbid yucks all the same.
