When Adam was fifteen, he walked over to Joe's house and asked him if he wanted to start a band. "I was the only kid in town who could play 'Boys Don't Cry' on guitar," says Joe. They wanted to call themselves "The Unspoken Few"... "We had pretty good taste in music and pretty bad taste in band names," says Adam. They got together in 2001 at the Music Building in New York City and a small studio in Queens to lay down the foundations of a new sound... enter Motherboard. Before long they were playing the New York downtown scene in places like Arlene Grocery, The Luna Lounge, Don Hill's and Brownies to an ever-increasing fan base. A four-song demo quickly followed, recorded over a few nights in Harvey's basement. After sending the demo out to a few friends... and a few friends of friends, Adam got an unexpected call from Oprah's Oxygen Network. They were asked to play two songs on national television. Joe recalls, "That was pretty exciting, and then Oprah actually showed up!" Adam sums up that fateful day in one sentence... "We thought we'd have to sell out long before we'd ever have Oprah in the audience."
On stage together, you'll see and hear: vocalist/songwriter Adam Blockton beating up on his guitar while spitting out scathing lyrics like "When I started sinking it was her retarded thinking that we both could learn from this phase, I never liked her too much anyway!" Lead guitarist Joe Tamagna, playing with a purity and originality so overwhelming (if you see him play a traditional guitar chord at a show, you're probably at the wrong show) you can't help but cheer as he makes every note count. Drummer Harvey Neil beating his drums with passion and precision, looming like a mystery, his quiet enthusiasm resembling a secret someone may or may not let you in on. The boy's influences range anywhere and everywhere from The Cure, The Pixies, and U2, to Nirvana, The Clash and The Vitamen. "When we first started out, we knew there was a great balance and that we had a unique sound. From the first note we knew", says Harvey.
If you've never been to a Motherboard show or heard a Motherboard song, to hear them is like hearing yourself in the band you always wanted to start when you were a kid. You hear yourself in them. To see them is to see you up on the stage. They represent the passion, the swagger, the jubilance and the rockstar that's in all of us.

The boys have gone on to collaborate with a number of producers and have been asked to write songs for a number of artists including Pink and Enrique Iglesias. They have written and performed the theme song for an episode of MTV's hit show MADE which premiered on August 2nd.
