About   MDT

Motorcycle Display Team make eminently danceable songs with melodic vocals and driving rhythms.

To date they have four eclectic releases to their name:
The Crayon Masterpiece (EP, 2009)
Captatio Benevolentiae (LP, 2012)
Letters of Last Resort (EP, 2015)
Yours Probably (LP, 2018)

They have played hundreds of shows across Ireland, the UK and Italy, in the process becoming a tight, professional and energetic live act and supporting the likes of Crazy World of Arthur Brown, My Life Story and The Quireboys.

Always a hit at festivals, they have received some great reviews and comparisons with Bowie, Zeppelin, Buckley, QOTSA and the Manics are frequently made.

MDT is Steve Hinds (vocals, guitar), Drew Thompson (bass) and Morgan Condon (drums).

MDT’s style is broad, but they build songs using soaring vocals, melodic hooks and unexpected ticks, all woven together in tight rhythm, delivered with a wink and a snarl. Steve’s pen doesn't discriminate. His lyrics tackle themes from kidnap to creationism, mental illness to misanthropy, patriotism to penis envy. The songs are often reflective of the trials of life but always engaging and tempered with a dark sense of humour.

Notable achievements include Absolute Radio's “Unsigned Band Of The Week”, plays on BBC 6 Music Introducing, XFM, BBC London 94.9, Music Week, Right Chord Music’s “Band Of The Week”, Emerging Icons, God Is In The TV and Room Thirteen coverage. Also, their music has been featured on TV shows in the UK and USA.
