Mother Superior were an American, Los Angeles–based rock band, consisting of guitarist/vocalist Jim Wilson, bassist Marcus Blake and drummer Matt Tecu. In addition to playing live with the Rollins Band and U2 producer Daniel Lanois, the band has done session work with Daniel Lanois, Henry Rollins, Tony Visconti, Alice Cooper, Meat Loaf, Emmylou Harris, Sparks, Anthrax, Wayne Kramer, Lemmy, George Clinton, Iggy Pop, Mike Patton, and Queens of the Stone Age. On their own, they released eight studio albums.
A few years after Mother Superior disbanded, Scott Ian of Anthrax (a fan of the band) brought Mother Superior vocalist Jim Wilson together with himself, Pearl Aday, Joey Vera (Fates Warning) and John Tempesta (The Cult) to perform his favorite Mother Superior songs at his house. This led to the group re-recording twelve of the songs and releasing them in 2015 under the name Motor Sister.
