In Motion – Hollow Blow

Drifting across 6,000 grainy shots of a run down Dublin the video for ‘Hollow Blow’ may not have been visually striking but with a backing track this ebullient it was always destined for repeated exposure on Ireland’s most progressive indie program ever ‘No Disco’. In Motion were led by Alan Kelly who seems to have gone to ground after the promise of his follow up to In Motion the Last Post. ‘The Language of Everyday Life’ was one of only 2 releases from the band and had a limited run of 1000 copies. The production was abrasively tinny but behind the din was a tanker full of cascading vocal melodies and jangling guitar riffs appropriating the blades of an aircraft engine. ‘Hollow Blow’ never fails to give me the goosebumps, it is pure unadulterated escapism put to music.
