Motorik was originally meant for inclusion on the Debut album only, however, upon the realisation that David Bowie had passed it felt only right to release it in his honour.

When writing songs I am often taken by a single track - leading to the creation of a song in a single session. Motorik was such a track, being inspired solely by Bowies "Red Sails" from his record "The Lodger".

The title came from Bowies inspiration by the Dusseldorf Krautrock scene and the name for the very important drum pattern used in its creation. Included are the traditional English church bells as a mark of the utmost respect for David and his artistic genius - these were not on the track until today, when the world learned of his passing.
