Motorcycle Display Team Q&A

Your name: 
Morgan Joseph Condon.

Where are you from?
I’m from Ireland, Dublin until the age of 9 then Kildare.

Name of band:
Motorcycle Display Team.

Who else is in your band?
Steven Hinds sings gloriously and plays guitar gracefully and Matthew Eyre slinks and slides all over the bass with much pazzazz and loads of oomph.

How would you describe yourselves and your music?
We are three gentlemen who politically look to the left and love to steep ourselves in music. Our music is rock music with a poppy feel and brilliant to sing along with. We love riffs and unexpected chord changes over beats you can shake it down to.  

Who are your main influences musically?
David Bowie, Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley and Smashing Pumpkins are the acts that brought us together. After that, there’s too many to list.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
To make music that connects with people and that people enjoy. Also, to finish off all the songs we’ve half written!

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Hearing our music on the radio was definitely a highlight, no question. Also, playing big festivals has been lots of fun. Of late, we’ve had some brilliant gigs that seem to be lifting the bar. I would like to hope we have more highlights to look forward to.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
I’ve already forgotten them all. Onwards and upwards to infinity and beyond.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
That’s a tough one. We cover a lot of different styles and themes. I’m going to pick our most recent single, ‘Letters of Last Resort’ as I feel it has a bit of the old and a good dollop of the new MDT sound.

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music? 

Anything else you’d like to say about your music that I forgot to ask?
There’s loads of things I could say about our music but I don’t like boring people. I guess, we are a very authentic band….none of what we do is contrived or trying to fit into certain genres or moulds. After that, you will need to listen yourself to see what you think.
