ORGY 2018 updated:
ORGY emerged in the Goth music scene in 1998 with their incredible remake of ‘Blue Monday’.
The track sold over 1 million copies and is still selling 20 years later. Orgy has built a worldwide
audience for the brand. In late 2005, after the release of the D1 Music and Associates Punk Statik
Paranoia PSP and their D1 Music /DLC Records Independent “TRANS GLOBAL
SPECTACLE” DVD promotional tour the band went on a hiatus to work on their side projects.
In 2011, after seven years of demand from fans for new music and a tour, founding member Jay
Gordon (vocals) decided it was time to kick things back up and begin recording and touring
again in support of ORGY’s fans.
Born in San Francisco, CA, Jay Gordon was heavily influenced by music from a young age.
After playing bass for several years and working as a producer and engineer on several albums
(including Coal Chamber’s self-titled album and others), Jay was introduced to four other
musicians who, with him, would eventually form ORGY. After establishing themselves in the
scene, the band was noticed by Korn vocalist Jonathan Davis and signed to Elementree/Reprise
records. The band went on a 7 year hiatus while some of the original members worked on side
projects and Jay went on producing and working in the studio with multiple artists. After many
unsuccessful attempts to reconnect with each other they decided to go their separate ways.
2011-2018
After deciding to reform the band due to the demands of rabid ORGY fans, Jay found himself
with the task of finding new members due to past members being busy with other projects.
First, Jay selected his long-time friend and colleague originally from North Carolina, guitarist
Carlton Bost to join the ranks of ORGY. Carlton is known for his previous synth guitar work in
art-rock band Deadsy, as well as for being the current guitar player for classic synth band Berlin. 
Other bands Carlton has been a member of, or played for, include The Dreaming, Stabbing
Westward, Lunarclick, 16 Volt, Tim Skold, and his own solo project Shades of Scar. 
Additionally, he works as a producer, writer, and re-mixer for various other artists.
ORGY Bassist, studio musician and live session performer Nic Speck came to Los Angeles via
upstate New York and Miami, FL.  Nic has played with a number of Los Angeles artists
including George Lynch, Run and Tranzk. 
With the addition of Nic, the new ORGY core was founded and ready to add a second guitar
player and drummer. The core worked with a couple great guitar players and amazing drummers
over the past 6 years, which brings us to the Bring Your Army Tour 2018.
Multi-talented guitarist, singer, producer, actor and stand-up comedian and long-time friend of
Jay’s has agreed to tour and work with ORGY. Ilia Yordanov (pronounced ileeah) was born in
Plovdiv, Bulgaria. He grew up in San Diego, CA and Seattle, WA. Ilia began playing shows at
age 13 with numerous bands until assembling his own band, 'Red Museum', in 2006. Red
Museum released 4 EPs. Ilia moved to Los Angeles in 2008 and has been living and performing
there for the past 10 years so he could focus his acting career, Ilia has predominantly remained a
solo artist musically. He produces and engineers his work. Additionally, he directed the video for
his single, 'Fire in the Middle', released in 2016. Ilia has also supervised and composed music for

film. In addition to music, Ilia regularly performs stand-up at The Comedy Store, and has self-
published a book titled, "Dirty Mirror Talk".
Motograter
Motograter
Motograter was formed in 1995 and is most well known for their namesake instrument the “Motograter”, a mysterious contraption designed with industrial cable, guitar pieces, and other components, to create a unique, low, distorted bass sound. The band is widely known for their image, notorious for covering themselves in tribal style body paint. The early stages of the group’s career consisted of heavy experimentation with industrial sounds, samples, and tribal drums. The band released two EP’s ‘Hugh Chardon’ and ‘Indy’ and in 2001 were signed to Sever Records, founded by Dez Fafara of Coal Chamber. The band’s sound continued to evolve, eventually incorporating a dark, groove-oriented guitar styling, that would help broaden the band’s appeal and reach a wider audience. In 2003, the band inked a deal with No Name/Elektra Records and released the highly acclaimed. self-titled album, ‘Motograter’, featuring Ivan Moody (Five Finger Death Punch/Ghost Machine) on vocals. The song “Suffocate” was featured on the soundtrack to the film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The song “Down” is featured on the EA Sports video game Nascar Thunder 2004. Motograter toured on the second stage of Ozzfest 2003. Motograter has toured with Ozzy Osbourne, Korn, Marilyn Manson, Chevelle, Disturbed, Ministry, Nothingface, Kittie, Mushroomhead, Cradle of Filth, Killswitch Engage, Chimaira, Shadows Fall, Voivod, and many more.

The Sophomore Motograter album is projected to be fully complete by the end of 2016. Producing the new album is Ahrue Luster, current guitar player for Ill Nino and former guitar player for Machine Head. Mixing the album is Joshua Wickman (King 810, Within The Ruins).
Mister Sam Shearon will be providing the artwork. Shearon has created covers for comic books and graphic novels including Clive Barker’s HELLRAISER, Judge Dredd, The X-Files, Mars Attacks, KISS, and Clive Barker’s Books of Blood and album sleeve artwork and merchandise designs for some of the biggest names in rock music, such as Godhead, Ministry, Rob Zombie, Iron Maiden, Powerman 5000, Biohazard, American Head Charge, Rammstein, Fear Factory and Kill Devil Hill.

Motograter recently completed a North American tour with American Head Charge in May/June 2016. Motograter have been announced as support on the Dope reunion tour along with Flaw, slated for Sept./Oct. 2016.
