Motor Sister: Ride
Anthrax’s Scott Ian and friends pay tribute to cult LA rockers.
Sometimes, through no fault of their own, fine bands fall between the cracks. Such was the case with Mother Superior, a Cream/Hendrix/Zeppelin-influenced power trio who cut eight studio albums of heavy blues-based hard rock in LA between 1996 and 2007 without ever troubling music historians. Chances are that if you know the band at all, it’ll be as the group Henry Rollins recruited to back him on the Rollins Band’s muscular Get Some Go Again and Nice albums (and indeed on the Rollins-produced Rise Above: 24 Black Flag Songs to Benefit the West Memphis Three compilation album), which is how Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian first discovered, and fell in love with, Jim Wilson’s band 15 years ago.
