Gareth Gorman of Living Abroad Magazine caught up with Aussie rockers Motor Ace, who recounted their worst concert experience. “We played a really packed one once in outer suburban Melbourne; it was run by these biker dudes and they wouldn’t pay us,” bassist Matt Balfe explained. “On top of that, they got violent and feisty about it at the end of the night. We pulled 1000 people to this joint and it was $18 a ticket and we didn’t see a fu**in’ cent of it.” What were the bikers’ excuse? “They said we played four minutes under time. Usually, you’ve got heavies from your booking agency or whatever to extract the funds, but they weren’t going to fu** with the Hell’s Angels or whoever it was.”
