The Motives, Bradford’s Punk, Ska and 1980's Electronica covers Band was formed by Paul Cousin, Del Trudgill and Andy Thorpe back in early 2017. The gents called upon the talents of their favourite musicians on the Yorkshire music scene to complete the band’s line up. Steve Atkins and Paul Guthrie also had a wealth of experience as permanent members of the likes of Bradford-based Bands ‘The Alpine Movement”, “Vandal Supreme” to name a few.
We perform all the classic Punk, Ska and Pop hits from the 70’s all the way up to the 1980's with our dancefloor fillers like Bad Manners, The Specials to The Stranglers, The Vapors, Elvis Costello, Tenpole Tudor to Depeche Mode and Culture Club naming just a few, and also some complimentary 'The Jam' hits thrown in and on it goes.
The list of the songs covered by The Motives is constantly evolving and being updated, and to date we hold in our arsenal over 70 songs in the genres previously mentioned.
We would love to cater to all tastes but due to our tried and tested method we tend to stick ONLY with the Classics. Please don’t ask for Elvis Presley.
The Motives are currently experimenting with ’80’s Electronica’ for the dance rhythms that never fail to get people moving. Artists like Soft Cell, Depeche Mode you know. It has also even proved to be very popular amongst even the most pessimistic musoes and stern music critics who seem to be swept away by the grooves.
This magnificent Grade I listed building, believed to have been converted into a pub in 1965 and last refurbished in 2003, is dated 1650, as indicated in the stonework above the door.
The bar faces two large lounges. The front room incorporates a massive inglenook fireplace with superb stonework, as well as old timber posts and heavy beams.
Other features that add to the atmosphere include an 'historic' mural of the house itself on one wall. The side lounge is sometimes host to live music or discos. During the day both rooms are lit by large sets of mullion windows.
Games enthusiasts are accommodated by a pool room behind the bar and a billiard room adjacent to the main lounge.
This is very special place to have a drink.
