Subject: os: third anniversary

Greetings Fellow Motorheadbangers!!

Well, first, I must apologize... there has been no newsletter for the past few weeks purely because of the chaos that I have encountered revolving around my move to Los Angeles. The good news is that I finally got access to the internet again yesterday (after quite a while away). THings are back on line and I have a lot of things to tell you...

First, this issue of OS marks the third anniversary of the existence of this list! Thats right... Overnight Sensation was born three years ago. So much has changed in that time ... almost all for the good! I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of you that have been part of the OS family, wether it has been from day one or if this is your first issue. Thank you one and all for letting me be part of this wonderful family.

Second, I am sure that a lot of you have heard by now that Mikkey got arrested in Denver. I spoke to Phil the next morning and he said that Mikkey, the bus driver and another person hanging out with them ended up getting pretty drunk and were pounding on the hotel room door of some fellow (a pilot I believe), thinking it was their room. The guy called the cops and all three of them were arrested for drunken and disorderly conduct. Mikkey was released in time for the show, so there was no
cancellations as a result of this incident. It did make the news all over the placem however... what is it they say, any publicity is good as long as they spell your name right? :-)

Third, I have some wonderful news for all of you people that have been sending requests for more Motorhead merchandise. I have been in contact with the company that handles all of the tour merchandise for Motorhead and they have agreed to suplly me with the same materials available on the tour! So, in the next little while I will be offering some cool new shirts and related items... including the heralded "Motorhead England" shirts! Keep watching the Motorheadshop for the new stuff, coming very
soon! Also, just another reminder about the new "We Are Motorhead" merchandise that I added in late May. We now have WE ARE MOTORHEAD signed CDs and Posters along with song official Mikkey Dee signature drumsticks that Mikkey signed for us himself. Check out the site for details and ordering instructions. Supplies are EXTREMELY limited on these items, so please email me to insure that I still have the items you want in stock. Response on these items has been very good... and I did not get many to begin with. Thanks!

I have also set things up with a new service called PayPal that allows me to take Visa and Mastercard payments for the merchandise available on the website. There is even a cool bonus for all of you if you decide to use this system... at this time, just for signing up to the PayPal service, you will get a $5 bonus when you create your account! There is no fees for using this service. Over the past couple of years, many of you have asked me to set things up so that you can use your credit cards to
purchase things off of the website... here is your solution. The PayPal server is secure, so you don't need to worry about that aspect of using your credit cards. To sign up for the PayPal service (remember, it's free), just go to: https://secure.paypal.com/refer/pal=acetrump%40bigfoot.com. . At the moment, this service is only available in North America, however, the indicate on their website that other countries will be added soon.

Fourth, and update on the video broadcast. One of the members of our Overnight Sensation family, Paul May, has volunteered to prepare the Nsahville Pussy and Motorhead shows for webcast. Paul does this sort of work professionally and we should be able to present this webcast within the next week or two. I will send out an announcement very soon on the specific date.

The tour is going very well. There has been one cancellation in Fargo due to lack of ticket sales. But, the rest of the shows have been slammin' from all reports! I posted pictures from the show I attended in Santa Ana in the Motorhead Gallery on the website the day after the show... check them out. In addition, I have also added a Motorhead Fan Art section that showcases some of the work emailed to me by some of the talented members of our little family. If you have an addition(s) that you would like to sumbit, please send it along. I would love to add it. Also, the Gallery has been reorganized to make navigation around it a little easier for those of you that do not have nigh bandwidth connections. A special thanks to OS member Harold Taylor for his cool new Gallery section headers. Thanks Harold!

Sixth, I have set up a very special part of the website just for OS members so that you can have a look at two of the designs available. One of the coolest things is that B.I.G. (the merchandising company) finally listened to what the fans were saying and included tour dates on the back of the WE ARE MOTORHEAD t-shirts. Check them out at http://www.imotorhead.com/newmerch/merch.htm

TOUR DATES! Get you Tour Dates!

If there are any Motorheadbangers out there that can get me a copy of any of the posters used to promote gigs in their town, I would be grateful. Please contact me off of list to arrange shipment. I think it would be cool to do a section in the gallery of nothing but posters. I need your help, please let me know if you are up to it! Thanks!

I have not recieved any updates from Motorhead's management for a while, so these dates are as accurate as I can get... but I understand that there are some changes... watch the website for up-to-the-minute changes. Thanks!

Subject: new mh video


Any plans to advertise the release date of the video for "God Save the Queen"(that's the vid they're doing, right?) as soon as it's finished? It would be nice to get the info, so that that way we won't have to put up with watching MTV's 24-hour bullshit to see its debut.

Thank you very much
Joe Loehr
PS Got the new CD Tuesday night. Great!!

PPS MH is coming to Fort Wayne(hometown) June 14. Got my tickets! TOO COOL!!

**Ace: I got to see the video (several times) when Motorhead where in town doing some shows. I personally really liked the video. The band said that they wanted to re-edit a few things before releasing it. I am hoping to offer the video off of the website in a streaming format for all to see. I will keep you posted.

I bought the new album when it came out over here in the UK. It is fantastic, only dodgy track is 'Wearing your heart on your sleeve'. The title track is 2min 20secs of pure Motorhead. Glad to see that I'm not the only one who wants to see the set list changed, from the intitial reviews it looked liked only 'GOd Save The Queen' was being included in the set but now thank god it looks like a few more tracks have made it to a live showing.

Few more comments to add :-

John from Tyne and Wear - I think you've drinking the boat paint mate :-)

Joey :- I agree. Judging by the amount of publicity that Motorhead have been getting in the UK over the last 15yrs girls wearing
their T-shirts just means that another bunch of tit's are doing the advertising.

Tour Dates :- There were a couple of mistakes that I noticed. 08/10/87 Reading gog was at the Hexagon. The gig finished early (about 6 songs) because some idiots were throwing beer glasses on stage! Also they did not play the Amnesty International gig on 10/06. I bought tickets and then Motorhead didn' play. There were a LOT of big bands who were due to play but didn't. Might have been a ploy to get ticket sales up because it was a kind of charity gig.

All the best

Greetings all Motorheadbangers!
Well, "We Are Motorhead" finally found its way to the cd shops here in the Czech Republic - I picked it up on my way home from work on Friday, and it didn't leave the cd player all weekend long! What a serious ass-kicking! All the songs rule - no way to choose only one favorite song on this album. Plus the production has that dark feel, very similar to thatl of the Bastards and Overnight Sensation albums. ALL of these songs deserve to be played live! Hell yes!!!!

To add more fuel to this fire, tomorrow night there is a Motorhead cover band playing in town [that town being Brno, CZ]. I'll be checking it out, and I'll report back to the list if anything significant happens. The Czechs are real hard-rockers, so a Czech Motorhead cover band should be something to see!

And, to top it all off, in June I'll be returning briefly to my true home-town of Atlanta, GA - where I will see Motorhead on June 18th, THE DAY AFTER MY WEDDING!!! Pretty cool, eh? Like many of the folks who wrote in OS #101 about the new album, I very much hope to hear a lot of these songs on the forthcoming tour. All of these new songs just SCREAM to be played live [can you imagine how powerfully "Wake The Dead" whould go down just before "Killed By Death as the pre-encore show-closers...?].

Any other OS readers out there who are planning to be at the Atlanta show, look for me in the "No Speak With Forked Tongue" European Tour 1998 t-shirt, and say hello - we'll rock!

War for War!

Subject: os.: setlist

Hi Guys,
I`ve seen some of you complaining about the MH Setlist, and I think you`re right. I have seen the Band 6 times and setlists were nearly identical. They should play some new songs and specially some weird old ones. Some of you suggested Limb from Limb and I totaly agree with you. It`s one of the coolest songs they ever wrote. (I won't) pay your price, Vibrator and Motrhead are also all time classics which would deserve to be played. Personally Im fed with Metropolis, Bomber and Overkill, I need a break. Beside the new one Bastards was the best MH album during the last ten years and I can`t believe that they never play Death or Glory. It's a perfect live track and in my opinion the best MH song ever. Dear Ace, you got a lot of mails about this, and it would be cool, if you could make possible to let the band know what their fans want.

Greetz and take care,

**Ace: You know I will... also please know that at least a couple of the band members and several members of the crew receive this newsletter... so there you go.

Subject: re: overnight sensation issue #101

The new album is EXCELLENT! I believe "Slow Dance" is one of their best songs ever and will become a classic. I also like "One More Fucking Time" very much, but I always like the ballads (except for "Daddy etc" song on Bastards - the only Motorhead song I don't really like). "Stay Out of Jail" will also likely become a classic. If you have yet to buy this album - GO
GET IT NOW. And it was great that Ace Trump got thanked in the notes.

> Subject: os: reissues

> Hey Ace, I picked up the "Overkill" and "Rock N Roll" reissues when I bought the new album. I really enjoy Steffan Chirazi's summaries that are included in each of these reissues. They do a great job of putting the history of the band in perspective. Any way we can get all of them put up on the website? We could replace the lame Alan Burridge summaries
with Steffan's in the Discography section. Alan's are way too "cushy". He describes March or Die with, "An album, as the norm now, riddled with absolute classics for us to headbang along to". Gimme a break! We all know that M or D is one of Motorhead's weaker efforts. And why does he always complement the slow songs (i.e. "Don't Let Daddy Kiss Me")? Stefan, if you're out there, you did a hellava job!

Please, don t call Alan summaries lame . He is the man who runs Motorhead fanclub for more than 20 years and he don t deserve such an attitude. Alan knows about Motorhead more than any person on this planet, he stayed with Motorhead during all the hard times, while others turned their back to Lemmy and Co., Alan always offered his help. He have the right to write
about Motorhead in the way he does. Believe me, he knows quite well that March Or Die is a weak album, after the album went out back in 1992, the biggest number of fans left the fanclub, and it was the biggest lost of the members in the whole history of Motorheadbangers club. Alan stays loyal to the band in any case, and I think that's the reason why he wrote it in that way. I think that it's no sense to write on the official site something like "and in the year 19.. the band released a weak and shitty album" or "during the 25 year history the band recorded a couple of weak ballads". We love Motorhead for ener!
getic crushy rock'n'roll hymns of all times, but who knows, maybe there is some one who loves Motorhead for hard-rocking "March Or Die", or who got the spark of the interest to the band listening to some ballad? I agree with you that Stefan Chirazi wrote an exellent annotations in the reissue booklets, well, he's a former Kerrang journalist, and this is his job. Alan Burridge wrote it in that way because of the love to the band, and I think that it's a great honour to have his comments on the official
site. In any case, all this is a matter of taste, and you always have a right of choice whose comments to read - neither it will be Alan's on the site or Stefan's in your CD inlay.

All the best for everybody,

The OS site is excellent and the new album is fanfukintastic!! I got the new disc a week ago and haven't taken it off the stereo yet. The traccks sound like vintage Motorhead from the "No Sleep Til Hammersmith" era. As a long time fan I think this is totally apropriate for an anniversary year. I especially like the ballad, hard yet soft, slow yet crushing.
One other thing, if I may. In one of his postings tis issue, avid W. lays into Allan Burridge pretty heavily. Well, I have been getting Alans newsletter since before there was an internet and I think he does a great job, no a FUCKING AWESOME job on the newsletter. Sure some people may not like all his reviews but his opinions and thoughts are valid and insightful. You do a great job Ace, and I'm sure you would agree that Alan does too. So if David W. doesn,t agree screw him! Thanks for the chance to rant in defense of my friend.
Tom O'Shea MHB 1246

*Ace: Alan's work on the Motorheadbangers club is one of the most touching and valuable resources that fans have to the greatest band in the world. The fact that Alan has done these newsletters for so many years just shows how decidated he is to the band and it's fans. Alan... YOU ROCK! Thanks for all your hard work and decication.

Subject: re: bring on the old stuff!!!!!!

Hey all.

Congratulations to ace for getting credits on the new album for many an occassion. It must make up for all your time and effort for doin' all this work you do for us, the fans and the band.

I donnu if this occured to anyone but I played the new album and I noticed the guitar intro on (We Are) Motorhead was shockingly similar to Stone Dead Forever. The style is the same and I bet the basic riff is very similar. I was just wonderin' if Lemmy decided to do a 'Ramones' and use the same guitar line but to create a different riff like playing it backwords.

After paying Stone Dead forever it got me thinking as seeing as people have been going on about other simularities about the new album and older ones I played my entire collection. I noticed some lyrics where the same such as 'Give me a stranger' which I sware was said on 1916 in the same way and No Voices in the sky and other's that i've forgotten.

Does this mean that Motorhead are gonna give us a shock and return to their older, Ace Of Spades era style as a one of because of the track number (10, like the old ones. i.e RnR) or does it mean a message for us to remember our roots as the new stuff is just as good/better than the old stuff??

This really did get me thinking as this may be stange to a lot of you but to me the simularities are strangly simular.

Iron Fist.

P.s Ace I totally agree with you, I would do anyhing to see Boogie Man live as it's one of my personal favc!!! Oh and look at the Nashville Pusssy page for tour info as there is quite a lot of speculation about which bands are gonna be apearing and I'm getting confused as the number seem's too large for one band!!

Subject: os: pre-vote the setlist !

There has been some wishing lately here on the OS for Motorhead to change their setlist. Maybe they should, maybe they shouldnt. We all have different favourites that we "expect" to be on the set forever, or dont we? Anyway, heres an idea about how it could be done, and in a way that let the fans at the specific gigs be a part of it. As I have been told the method has furthermore already been tested, but that information is a bit vague to say the least. Wheter its true or not I think the idea in itself is a good start so heres what my friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend told me:

He claimed that David Bowie - or at least I think it was Bowie, I was a bit drunk that night - have been experimenting with letting the fans pre-vote half the setlist for his concerts. If you pre-bought the ticket you also got to pre-vote for ten songs that you would like to hear in the concert. The ten songs that got the most votes were then put in the show. And Bowie himself then dicided which other songs should be on, and the order of the set. I have no idea if the voting was done over the internet or through som votinglist you got with the ticket and then had to mail in. Im not into Bowie so I havent bothered to check out the details. I heard about this about a year ago and then forget about it until it came back to me while reading OS 101.

Wheter it has been done before or not Im pretty sure it could be done. Preferably over the internet in some way. I mean, this is exactly the kind of internet-interactivity that I think would ad bonus-value to shopping over the net. And the right to vote doesnt necessarily have to come with the ticket. One other idea is to let it come with buying the official album. Think about it. If you buy the new album (through the official website or any other official channel) you in some way get the right to vote for half the setlist when Motorhead plays your country/state/city. If youre a cheap bastard who buys homemade copys from FlyByNiteCDRW Records down on the corner, you dont! Adding bonus-value to official records must be the best way to fight homemade copying, dont you think? Is this concept a good idea? Is it possible? Should it be done? And if so, how? If
youre on this list and have more tech-knowledge than me, please give us your five cents about this idea.

Subject: os: portland show

I am happy to say that my Motorhead cherry has finally been popped. I saw the Portland, OR show on Saturday, and they were all I expected, plus way more. The Roseland is a great venue, even if the security is too full of themselves. I was happy to hear three songs off the new album (We Are Motorhead, God Save the Queen, and Stay Out of Jail.), plus many others.
After the show, I went out back to get some autographs, and Mikkey told me that this had been the best North American show yet, he even told us that Vegas was a bunch of wankers, but that was probably just sweet drunk talk. Anyways, I just wanted to say how great it was, and also ask, for further reference, how to grab some backstage passes for next time. Ace, any help with this?

Subject: overnight sensation list


My response to a few postings plus my own rantings! :]

Confession - I was a rabid, but low income fan from around 1988-1992. After being a bit upset by the Hellraiser video, I left the fold for a while, but did go to see Motorhead open for Black Sabbath=(I think it was 1994). RJ Dio had left Sabbath and Tony Martin had returned. Morbid Angel was the true opener of the three band set. ANYWAY, the Motorhead set was over in what seemed like seconds (in other words, way too fast!). Since then, I have gotten heavily into Hawkwind (via Monster Magnet, who really have a horrible attitude lately, but did put out some great stuff, see Tab...25). For those Motorheadbangers out there who do not have Hawkwind releases like Hall of the Mountain Grill or Space Ritual, GET
THEM. You will be glad you did.

After doing the whole Hawkwind thing (lets face it, the non-Lemmy stuff is great, too) having seen Motorhead again in October 1999, I have become totally obsessed with Motorhead again, and Have been buying up the releases missing from my collection (boy the re-releases are awesome, bonus tracks, packaging, and liner notes!). Oh yes, the Sam Gopal release is fun, too.

Set Lists - There are so many great songs that Motorhead could really bring a lot of old songs in to the set, but, I really do think they need to include Ace of Spades and Orgasmatron. I would love to hear Lost Johnny live, say nothing for roughly another 20+ songs.

T-Shirts - Ace, I cannot wait until you sell some on line!

Iron Fist and the Hordes from Hell - I have the Watcher album, which has to be the same performance as Wot's Words Worth?. I=see someone pointed out that there are a bunch of different titles that are the same thing, if not more titles.

I agree totally with the comments critisizing the Rebel Radio thing. What is up with the rebel flags on some Motorhead T-shirts? Lemmy is not at all racist, as far as I know.

My first album was a used copy of On Parole in 1988. Ironically, that really is the first Motorhead album.==My next album was ...Hammersmith. Incredible!

I must be one of the few fans who don't think that much of Overnight Sensation (there are a couple really good songs on there, but it seems very heavy handed, overall), but I really like We Are Motorhead. At this point, it is truly incredible that Lemmy is rocking as hard as he is, at his age, NO ONE comes close to Lemmy! Great photo of Lemmy, too.=

Oh yes, the crowd at the Madison, WI, was going crazy for Motorhead, and Lemmy did say " sometimes the smallest places are the best" I think the place holds 1000, and it was quite full. No cocktail sipping! It was incredibly loud, however, my hearing really was not normal for about 24 hours. The Gig was back in October, but I just recently got a PC at home.

Subject: we are all motorhead

Just got the new CD and tickets to the Cleveland show. What a great CD. I hope they play all the new songs (yeah - right!)
"We Are Motorhead" is such a classic Motorhead song. It starts off with a killer bass riff (i.e. Ace of Spades,Iron Fist, Back At The Funny Farm...) and never lets up. Do you think they intentially tried to recreate that late 70's/early 80's Motorhead style? EXCELLENT!!!!!!
I also love "Wake The Dead". I love when Lemmy jams on the bass at the end. It's like for a brief moment they turned into the Greatful Dead of heavy metal.

Lemmy, if for some reason you are happening to read this, PLEASE consider the following songs for inclusion to the set list sometime in the future:
*Mean Machine
*I'll Be Your Sister
*Boogyman (right Ace?)
*All For You
*Sex and Death
*Back at the Funny Farm
*I Got Mine
*I Don't Believe a Word
*Devils (possibly the best Motorhead song)
*Shut You Down
*Make `em Blind
*Crazy Like a Fox
Hell, just play anything different. This will be my fourth Motorhead show - I can live without hearing "Going to Brazil" and "Bomber" live again. I'd love to hear "Just `cause You Got the Power" but I know it would be difficult to play without a second
guitarist. I have a bootleg CD (Better Wear Armour) and they play the song with the 1994/95 line-up. Mickey adds ALOT to that song with his drumming.

O.K., I'm done, but I'll leave you all with this:

In the middle of "Ace of Spades" on the Everything Louder Than... CD, listen for these choice lyrics:
"You know I'm born to lose
and gambling is for fools.
But that's the way I like it baby.
And I don't want to live forever!!!!
But apparently I am."

Eric in Ohio
Look for me at the show in Cleveland. I'll be with a very bored-looking blonde. You'll know it's her if you hear this line, "Are they playing the same song over and over?" I didn't marry her for her musical taste. LATER!!!!!

Hello, Ace!
Your story about Tony Beeton in the last issue was a little bit scary, but Thanks to Rock'n'Roll God he let Tony to stay with us! It was pleasant for me to share a company with him while they were on tour here in Russia in 1997 and last autumn in Estonia, he's an exellent guy and it was nice to chat with him over a cup(s) of beer.

HEALTH RUINS LIZZY TOUR: THIN LIZZY have announced the postponement of their European tour due to injuries suffered by band guitarist SCOTT GORHAM, resulting in damage to his back & shoulder muscles. Scott has been advised by doctors to seek treatment and rest as his condition could worsen by the strains of travel and performance on stage. "I am as
disappointed as the fans will be, " said Scott. "Thin Lizzy would be cheating the fans if we were not giving 100% of our abilities. We were all looking forward to a great tour and we promise to make it up by returning to Europe as soon as possible." The tour was scheduled in conjunction with the band's forthcoming live album, Live - One Night Only, due for release on June 20th 2000. Meanwhile, Axekiller will be issuing a tribute to Thin Lizzy in August entitled Killers On The Loose Again, featuring 13
tracks are covered by ex-members of BLACK SABBATH, WHITESNAKE, UFO, OZZY OSBOURNE, SAMSON, MOTORHEAD and others...

I just saw last week Motrheads new video God save the queen. It really kicked ass (just like their new album). It was fucking great. The video was shown in Finnish TV-program "Jyrki".

Consept of the video was that they (Motrhead) were playing roof of bus which drove around London centre. The "queen" was also in the video.

I would like to know where could I find Bass tabs to newer Motrhead albums.
>From Sacrifice to We are Motrhead. Especially to songs like Sacrifice, Civil war, I don`t believe a word, Order/fade to black and etc.

P.S Motrhead lives forever! Also sorry about my bad language.

Well, well, well... Motorhead did it again! As you have all probably found out by now, "we are Motorhead" is simply wicked!!! Some people are disapointed that the guys are making the same "shit" they have always have been making, but if you want MH; you GET MH!!!!!!! I think it's excelent!

I noticed in the cd cover Lemmy sez: "As you get older, you do get slower, I do apologize". Considering the opening track, I wouldn't exactly say he has anything to apologize about!! LEMMY: what ever gave you that idea?

From: "John A. Norris" jn1@zdnetonebox.com
Last night I went to see a Motorhead tribute band here in Brno, CZ. It was a good, fun show, and very loud. Even though its not really Motorhead, I thought the setlist might be interesting as a look at which songs some serious Motorhead fans like to jam on. So, here is the exact setlist of what they played:

1. Stand
2. I'm Your Doctor
3. I am the Sword
4. Bad Religion
5. All For You
6. Cat Scratch Fever
7. Dogface Boy
8. You'd Better Run
9. No Voices in the Sky
10. Overnight Sensation
11. Goin to Brazil
12. Eat The Rich
----short intermission, beer break----
13. Over your Shoulder
15. Iron Fist
16. I Ain't No Nice Guy
17. Killed By Death
18. Orgasmatron
19. Sacrifice
20. I'm The Man
21. Ace of Spades
22. Bomber
23. Overkill

As you can see, its a pretty interesting group of songs. "I Am The Sword" and "Dog Face Boy" were cool surprises. "Overnight Sensation" was slow and dirty, like on the album - and yes, the really did play Sacrifice [I almost lost it!!]. The guys in the band were all great players, and all in all it was great fun. I spent the rest of the evening having beers with the band and talking about Motorhead, of course! Although there were only about 25 people at this show, I learned from the band that there are actually three Motorhead tribute bands currently active in the Czech Republic. This seems like another manifestation of Motorhead's relatively small, yet fanatical, fanbase - these guys feel so strongly about Motorhead music that they play it themselves, even when they have to drive three hours to the gig to play for 25 people, three hours back home in the middle of the night, and even pay for their beer at the gig!
Well, that's rock n' roll!

Subject: os: review of "we are motorhead"

We learn early on that Mikkey Dee is the star of "We are Motorhead". He lays claim that maybe he truly is "the greatest drummer in the world" as Lemmy likes to say.

"See Me Burning" sets the trend (although I prefer the similar "Burner"). Let's hope they replace the old and tired "Bomber" as their set opener and replace it with this new monster. "Wake the Dead" is complex and meaty. Too bad it dies at chorus time. "Wearing Your Heart on Your Sleeve" very solid as well.
Best cut: "Stay out of Jail" - awesome riff, awesome chorus Worst cut: "God Save the Queen" - I'm simply not a punk fan. If Motorhead sounded like this all the time, I never would have bought a single album. This just proves they are a metal band, not a punk band. Don't you wish they would finally admit it?

Summary: This is a very solid album, top to bottom. Even the ballad is a nice piece of work. I rank it below Bastards and 1916, barely a notch below Sacrifice, but ahead of OS, SBL, and M or D as far as the "metal" albums go.

P.S. I see that I'm not alone in thinking the boys need to mix up their set a bit. Let's see if they listen to us.

You know what, buddy... Some simple things that will make you a great kick ass pleasure with "We Are Motorhead":

1. You've got to buy two or more bottles of "Jim Beam" (1000 cl or more) and take it to your place. (Use no glasses... you've got to drink later right from the bottle)
2. Two or more packs of Marlboro redz.
3. Turn on your amplifier.
4. Push "repeat" button on your CD-player, then - "play". (Turn volume to an "are you nuts" position).
5. Then stand back, relax, drink, smoke and enjoy THE LOUDEST BAND OF THE WORLD (You will understand it after seeing a bottom of your first bottle)
6. When you'll drink all Jim Beam till the end wait for the end of the last track. When it ends, push "stop"

I see you'll say "Yes... They Are Motorhead". And then there will be silence. That's it. Last but not least - next morning try to find a bottle of "Carlsberg". (Cool before drinking) It is very good against abstinence. In Russia we do it in that way.

Good luck buddy.

Subject: os re - issue 101

Its been a while since I contributed any thoughts to OS, but have been reading everyone else's when i get the chance.

Firstly, gotta say that the new album is blinding. Managed to get the "Leather?" boxed version too. Favourite track has got to be "We Are Motorhead". It took me right back to 1980 - 82. This track could've been lifted from either Ironfist or Ace of Spades - Bostin'. Other instant classics are "One more Fuckin' Time" and "Slow Dance" and the rest of the album is slowly burrowing its way deep into my head.

I notice that songwriting credit for all songs (except GSTQ) goes to all three bandmembers on this occasion. (I seem to recall that on recent albums some were just Lemmy, others Lemmy & Phil, Lemmy & Mikkey etc). If this means that they wrote all the songs together, then I'm sure you'll all agree that this has worked to produce stronger songs and it's an approach they
should continue.

To answer if i can a couple of questions asked in OS 101,

Sam (lucas1982)wants to know who sings Vibrator and Fools on the "On Parole" Album. As far as I'm aware, its the old Lemster himself. Anyone know any different? Also he asks who are the writers of some of the songs on the album.

Wallis is obviously Larry (guitars on that album), Taylor (The Philthy Animal). Tramp was one of Lemmy's Hell's angel mates at the time. Farren is Mick - who along with his girlfriend was described by Lemmy as "one of my families" on the thank you list for the Motorhead album. I assume that some songs were written as Motorhead, and some were bought in from old bands,
Lemmy from Hawkwind and Larry would have bought in songs written in his time with Pink Fairies (maybe that's where Brown and Sanderson come in ?)

Leaving Here was originally a Byrds song i'm lead to believe, so Holland/Dozier/Holland must have something to do with them lot.

Read various messages regarding "Whats Words Worth", I'd say that the bust on the front is probably the poet William Wordsworth, as in "read plenty of Wordsworth". Lemmy's parting comments at the end of (at least my copy) of the album.

Thomas Flynn, I played Limb from Limb for the first time in a while, thanks for the reminder. Now try "Poison" from the Bomber album!!!!!! 'kin 'ell.

You've gotta feel a bit sorry for us in the UK, having to wait another 6 months or so before the tour hits our shores, good thing we all know it's gonna be worth the wait.

PS, for any anoraks out there, why not try this game. How many titles or lyrics from older album tracks can you spot on the last 4 newer albums. No prizes, just the satisfaction of being a sad trainspotter.

Catch you Later

**Ace: Using Bob Kulick as a producer on this album also made a BIG difference. He really brought the best in th ebys out for all of us to see!

Subject: os: bc shows

Hey all,

Just came back from the 2 shows in British Columbia. First the May 30 show in Victoria: Wasn't sure what to expect for this show. Victoria is on an island and you have to take an expensive 90 minute ferry ride to get over there. Not too many bands go over there. Plus its a small city, I didn't think it would be a great turnout. So I took the afternoon off ( I work and live in Vancouver) and made the trek over. The show was at a converted curling rink. The turnout was really good, guessing around 500 people. Speedealer and Fu Manchu both played good sets. Nashville Pussy were awesome, there new tunes really went over well with the crowd. Motorhead were amazing as usual. The crowd went nuts all night non-stop, a crazy pit with some amazing body surfing. After the show, the crowd was still buzzing, hanging around the venue. There were rumours that Lemmy was at the IceHouse (bar) before the show, so a bunch of people began heading that way thinking he might show up after. Around 1in the morning Lemmy showed up at the bar. Of course he was hounded and followed, but he was nice enough to sign my ticket and shake my hand. I went back to my hotel after a awesome night. Next day, back on the ferry to Vancouver, half a day at the office, then off to Motorhead at the Commodore Ballroom. When we got to the venue, it was already
buzzing. We heard the show was sold out (1000 capacity), and tickets were scalping for $125. Speedealer and Fu Manchu again both played good sets, and went over well with the crowd. Nashville Pussy were great again, I am sure of lot of us will buy their new CD, the songs sounded great. Motorhead were amazing again. It was a really fun atmosphere, the band seemed to having a great time. Members of Nashville Pussy, Fun Manchu, and Speedealer, were all at the side of the stage totally into the show. The crowd was great, it was so packed at the front though it was hard to move. Lots of moshing, not a whole lot of bodysurfing. They played the same set at both shows. I don't have the exact order but:

We Are Motorhead
No Class
I'm So Bad
Over Your Shoulder
Civil War
God Save the Queen
Dead Men Tell no Tales
Stay Out of Jail
Born to Raise Hell
Going to Brazil
Iron Fist
Killed by Death
Ace of Spades

It was so loud, even with ear plugs, I am still deaf today. Steve

From: "Barna" barna@serware.swi.hu
Subject: os: a request and setlists and else


I would like to ask a favour concerning the new album from people of English language and I would be very happy if someone could help me!:
1. Could you give a link where I can find the lyrics of God Save The Queen as performed by Lemmy cos in some parts he's singing something else than the original version, and I can't catch it (Lemmy never was the best interpretator for a language lesson :-)). Or if someone could write it down!
2. Please, could you write me what it wants to mean the refrain of Out To Lunch: "turned around again...out for blood...etc", cos I have no idea (I understand the words but not its sense). Thank you.
In the June issue of the Hungarian Metal Hammer magazine the editorial staff voted We Are Motrhead the best album of the month. It made me happy, mainly because other times Motrhead is not so frequented or preferred in the press. The album have not really got out of my player, if not for the sake of an older one. The beginning of Slow Dance makes me crazy always, as its solo too. I think what Mikkey Dee shows in Slow Dance, in Wake The Dead and in See Me Burning is surely some of his ever finest moments. Lemmy's voice in Wake The Dead when he singing "you'll never know the truth" makes me shiver every time, like that middle-part with the solo bass playing and those hammering drums. Wearing Your Heart.. is one of Lemmy's best lyrics. I think the bass line of the title track doesn't resembles that of Ace Of Spades too much because it's just half long, it's more like the bass intro of Stone Dead Forever but faster. But the song as a whole rather leads back to the Orgasmatron-Another Perfect Day period. One thing for sure: the world would be a blank and boring place without rock'n'roll.
I can agree absolutely with those who say Motrhead should vary their setlist more by time to time. They should play AT LEAST 4 songs of the new album - yea the title track is surely an awesome opener. It's not so important to hear an oldie standard for the 100th time, from which songs not even all go through as well as they should - regarding the double live album. I mean No Class, which is too slow (even though if that ending is cool), and Capricorn which I think neither fits so well (- but these are the only weaker points of that powerful record). There are huge amounts of 'all the aces' apart from the 'standards', from all periods, that should be played! (I started to list a few but I deleted cos it didn't seem to end.) I read a complaint that the show is relatively short: yes, but extremely intensive. Someone compared Motrhead to AC/DC: I say that the adherence and loyalty of both to a well worked-out style is right, but anyone can see that (though I love it) AC/DC always was much more predictable and one-track than Motrhead, not mentioning that they're much lazier (subsided old gentlemen).
greets, Barna

On the other hand it also looked like they were having a good time. Once they got the sound problem fixed (during Mickey's solo) they sounded great. Of course there were a few drunk assholes throwing full beers and drinks with ice on stage even after Lemmy & Phil asked them nicely not to. I really enjoy the new CD and especially the cuts performed live. Opening the show with We Are Motorhead and then jumping right in to No Class was awsome. The set list was quite complete covering several oldies from the Fast Eddie era and some newer material from the Wurzell era. The first time I saw the band was back in 1981 during the Iron Fist Tour when they were opening for Ozzy's Blizzard of Oz Tour. Nothing so far has compared to that show. They had the Bomber light show and played forever I tried to get a poster of the show but security wouldn't let me tear it off the wall. Well I thought maybe you would be intrested in a review of the show. I give it an A+ as always, I just hope they return for more shows. I think I'm going to the show tonight in Colo. Springs if so I'll give you that review. Well Ace gotta go, keep up the good work and rock on Motorhead forever!!!!!!!!!

Band member arrested at hotel

By - newsroom@denverpost.comThe Denver Post

June 10, 2000 - A member of the English heavy metal band Motorhead and two of the band's entourage were arrested in Denver on Friday after a disturbance in a downtown hotel, authorities said.

Denver police said Michael Delaoglou - the Motorhead drummer known as Mikkey Dee - along with Dave Smith and Patricia Laducer were arrested at a Holiday Inn about 4:30 a.m.
Authorities said Laducer was arrested for investigation of disturbing the peace. A spokeswoman for Denver police said she did not know the charges against Delaouglou and Smith.
The band was in town for a concert Friday night. Delaoglou was reportedly released in time for the concert.
A pilot reported the disturbance when he heard pounding on his room door about 3:30 a.m.
Holiday Inn spokeswoman Kerri Wightman said, "It appears to be an isolated incident that resulted from the band members' intoxication," she said. "I think they forgot which room they were in; they thought it was their own."

Rock Band Motorhead Members Arrested

DENVER (AP) -- To fans of the heavy-metal band Motorhead, louder is better.
But the racket the band made in the hallway of a hotel at 4:30 a.m. Friday had a less enthusiastic audience. Mikkey Dee and two members of the English band's entourage were arrested after a disturbance at a Holiday Inn in downtown Denver. A guest at the hotel called security when he was awakened by pounding on his door and screaming outside.
"It appears to be an isolated incident that resulted from the band member's intoxication,'' explained a Holiday Inn spokewoman, noting the band apparently was in the hotel bar until closing at 2 a.m. I think they forgot which room they were in. They thought it was their own.''

Dear fellow Motorhead lover,
I've been a long time lover of Motorhead, and even partied with the boyz. I've been looking for about 15 years for the video to the song "ORGASMATRON". Do you know how I can get a copy of it. Aparently it is one of the most vicious, savage, grotesque vids to ever rape the land. The boys really out did themselves to a point where no-one would let them play it on MTV or Muchmusic. Can you help a diehard?? Please respond.

Good Day to all you fine upstanding Motorhead-loving citizens out there,

Having just skived off work to go and buy the new special edition version of "We Are Motorhead", and whilst listening in admiration for the first time, I got to thinking........ There's always a lot of debate about the best Motorhead line up i.e. is it the classic line up, the one with musical Brian Robertson, the thundering Pete Gill one, the double guitar onslaught of messrs Campbell and Worzel and besides coming up with the conclusion, who fucking cares as long as the music rocks,I came up with
the other conclusion that you can't really compare like for like. For me the classic line up (Lemmy, Philthy,andEddie) will always=be more fondly remembered by me but that's mostly because of my age and the memories of my early Motorhead years that those lads gave me. And that's the point: we're all nostalgia freaks of one sort or another and everybody has their own opinion, so to say that one line up is better than another is bollocks.
In the early days there was a power, a raw energy that stemmed from years of toil and not getting the break; of a two-fingered salute to the establishment and authority and all that it stood for. But times change - people change - and music changes. The Motorhead of today is far different to that of "Bomber" and "Overkill" days. There isn't that naive "up and at 'em" sound any more, it's more musical, more considered, more professional and more grown up - but better or worse ? Neither !! It's just different because the band and the music has evolved as you have to if you want to stay on top, stand still and the world will pass you by. I still love the old stuff, but if another album came out with that sound it would be false. This is the way Motorhead sounds today and whether it's different or not, it still does it for me.

I must admit at this point that after adopting them as my band in '78, the onset of marriage, kids and=Motorhead's contractual disputes saw me disappear from the scene in the early/mid 90's, but with the advent of the World Wide Web and the sterling efforts of the likes of Ace I was brought back into the fold - and I'm so glad to be back. The music of Motorhead lifts and inspires, it has you rocking and also thinking at some of the great Lem -meister's lyrics. When you're in the mood for Motorhead, nothing else will do and they have the ability to take you away from your shit job and humdrum life for a while like no other band can. It's not about the line-up, or the difference in music from the early days to now - Motorhead is a feeling, a state of mind. It's pure unadulterated Rock n' Roll, written with and played with belief and uncompromising principles for which Lemmy should get all the plaudits that he richly deserves. How many bands have sold their souls to the record companies? Motorhead never have, never will and that's why we all write to this page. Born to lose, live to win.

As for the new album, well there have been bad albums in the past ( if your team is playing shit and losing every week you don't tell people how good they are) so let's not be frightened of a little constructive criticism here. I know we're all fans or we wouldn't be reading this but it gets a little tedious reading of wonderful write-ups and tributes to less than satisfactory collaborations (Iron Fist etc), having said that, I think the new album is Motorhead at their finest. At 38 minutes and 10 tracks long there are no fillers and timewasting weak tracks,each one has it's own individuality and the writing just gets better and better.
Musically they could play in the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra nowadays they're that good, but the album for all it's=professionalism and technical wizardry never loses sight of what it's designed to do - rock your balls off. My neighbours are pissed off with me already, but who gives a shit, Lemmy and co have spent 25 years not compromising their principles so I'm not going to put any Michael Bolton on just coz it sounds nice.

Anyway mortals, thanx for listening. Listen to the intro's of "Stagefright" and "We are Motorhead" and then to "Tales of Glory" (from "Another Perfect Day") and "Stone Dead Forever" - fantastic.

Anybody found the artwork to "We are Motorhead" as wallpaper yet or a decent Motorhead desktop theme ?
