The Motels were an LA band that paid its dues in local clubs before being signed to Capital. Fronted by sultry black haired singer Martha Davis, with drumming provided by Britisher Brian Glascock, the band hit the Top Ten in 1982 with “Only The Lonely.” The next year they hit the Top Ten again with “Suddenly Last Summer.” After two more postings in the Top 40, the band broke up in 1987.
