Starlite Motel is a band that merges psychedelic rock, Americana, and free improvisation. The band consists of Gard Nilssen, a Norwegian dummer known from rock and electro bands Puma and Bushman's Revenge, but also from the hardcore post-free-jazz combo Acoustic Unity and Cortex.
His Norwegian band colleagues are also well established: Saxophonist Kristoffer Berre Alberts has combined jazz and noise-music in collaboration with Lasse Marhaug and Maja Ratkje, and bassist Ingebrigt Haaker Flaten has played in the free-jazz/free-rock band The Thing, as well as heading the metal/hip hop/jazz-band The Young Mothers. The American in the group is Jamie Saft, one of the most frequent collaboration partner of John Zorn, and member of Electric Masada.
All of this make Starlight Motel's music sensational and sensual, cosmic and groovy at the same time.
