The Tussler – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the first album by Motorpsycho & Friends, released in 1994. The album was the soundtrack to a fictional Spaghetti Western by non-existent director Theo Buhara. Its Country Rock sound marked a drastic departure from the earlier Motorpsycho records, which were hard-rocking.

Originally released only on CD in 1994 in two very limited editions, it was re-released in 1996 as a double 10" vinyl, after the band, now calling themselves The International Tussler Society, got together again to record some new material in (supposedly) late summer 1995. From these sessions, four songs were included as bonus tracks on the vinyl reissue.

After a long hiatus, the I.T.S. regrouped in 2002 to play some gigs and decided to remaster the original album, which had become a sought-after rarity in the Motorpsycho catalogue. It was finally released in 2003 in its definitive form including all songs from the 1995 sessions.
