Motorcycle song - Bruce Haack & Miss Nelson




Born on May 4, 1931 in Alberta, Canada, Bruce Haack is one of the pioneers of electronic music during the 50's and 60's. His robotic songs were a precedent to the work of Synth Pop artists from the 70's such as Kraftwerk and Gary Numan, and his quasy-psychedelic electronic music was a clear influence in the Space Rock music. Bruce Haack died in September 1988 at the age of 57.

Brammo Empulse

Call us oldfashioned... but a motorcycle without exhaust gas, oil stains and a whole lotta noise isn't a motorcycle at all. It's a battery on wheels.
The environment they say... Hmm, We think of other things to help the environment, less people for instance.
That would really solve the traffic jams... and the environment problems.
However, we do follow the electric cyclemanufacturers like BRAMMO.
Btw: do you all this a "motor"cycle? Or rather an Electrocycle?
The Empulse is an environment friendly & cool looking alternative.
The technology always gets better and faster...
Will these pioneers become the BMW's and Honda's of the next century?
Makes you wonder what the future brings?

Miha Furlan - Motorsport art

No motorcycles unfortunately ... however so beautiful, I don't even mind if he only draws racing cars.
You feel the speed in his drawings. Very cool art work.

Lord of Altamont

Born to be wild... the alternative.
Because we aren't in our 50's with a midlife crisis. We don't ride a Harley. We don't ride easy either.
It may be a little bit faster anyway... all the way.
Roll over Steppenwolf. Here's "Lords of Altamont" !
Greasy & sleazy rocknroll with the attitude of a bad ass motorcycle gang on speed...
Well, they sound like it.
