Greetings Fellow Motorheadbangers!!

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 supply 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 - but it will be after the tour has finished... 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.

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!

Please mail them to:

Subject: os: motorhead in winnipeg

Motorhead played Winnipeg (Manitoba, Canada, eh?) on June 5, 2000. I've been looking forward to seeing Lemmy and the boys since I first spun the Ace of Spades LP 20 years ago. Work and personal issues prevented me from seeing them in (if memory serves) ~82 and again ~88 (had to fly out of town for work for 1 month and gave my ticket to a friend).
Anyhow, I'm 34 and have a 14 year old brother who had never been to a concert before. He has always liked Motorhead since listening to them at my house. I bought a couple of tickets for my brother and I (my dear wife would not come no matter how much I begged) for the June 5 show and am proud to say we have a new die-hard fan. :)

First band up was Speedealer. Not bad, not great. They need some polish but have promise. Fu Manchu cancelled because of the age old reason of bus trouble in BC (Too many mushrooms perhaps? ;)) Nashville Pussy is a damn fine band, but their 'patented' schtick of spitting out fire is fine in a smaller venue, but in a larger place like the 3 level Walker Theatre here in Winnipeg it really looked cheesy.

Then came Motorhead.

Grinding and pounding at volumes I've never imagined possible. My little brother to my left was sitting there with his mouth open in absolute awe of the band. Lemmy's towering stature is formidible indeed. (I'm actually getting goosebumps thinking of the show again.)
A definate highlight was Mikkey Dee's great drum solo during Sacrifice. I wish it went on 5 times as long. My wife told me after that she tried getting me passes to backstage to no avail. Regardless, it was the finest show I've ever seen in my years of concert-going. No explosions, no stupid stunts, no bullshit. Just hard and loud rock and roll.
Thank you Lemmy, Mikkey Dee, and Phil (and members of Motorhead past) for doing your part in keeping rock and roll pure!
A die hard fan,

Hi, fran from spain... last weekend i was in the town party of one little town, completely drunk, and i saw one guy selling heavy metal tshirts... i told him, man dont you have mth tshirts, right?... but he told me, youre wrong... he had two kinds of mth tshirt... i couldnt believe it... i congratulated the guy... when i had already the money in my hand to pay it... i wear tshirt, but shit, i was a little fat to wearing it....

about the voting for the set list, i think its an awful idea... i really would enjoy a motorhead show if they play some of this songs...

Keep us on the road
death or glory
rock n roll
we are the roadcrew
over the top
joy of labour
religion i dont need
tear ya down
limb from limb.....
the hammer

i dont mind if they dont play ace of spades instead, or overkill, or killed by death... but i would hate a motorhead show without STAY CLEAN.... it is the "second class song" we all love. When i see them here in my city on 1995, the made the sound check with a full stay clean.. and then they played it again in the show... listening to stay clean two times a day... WOW!

thats all, im waiting already for the a new motorhead album... and very happy for the new tshirts buying section thanks for your work Ace...

Greetings Ace and all OS'ers, from upstate NY, USA!
The tour is steamrolling my way and I can't believe they're playing 30 mins from my hometown this time! Usually I have to make a 200 mile trek ALONE every year to see them.
In the last issue it was asked if any Motorhead wallpaper exists and there is a nice selection on the KILLED BY MOTORHEAD page at Yahoo Clubs. http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/killedbymotorhead If you join (please do!) you will have access to the photos section and they have really cool ones including the warpig, SBL cover, Bomber cover, ELTEE cover and WE ARE MOTORHEAD cover! I had the warpig tiled on mine all winter and now have put the WAM cover up. Everyone who sees it makes a positive comment and all MHB's should enjoy them.
Huge thanks for this list, Ace, as usual!

House Of Blues, Chicago

June 13, 2000

Our latest Motor-adventure actually started the night before the show when guitarist Phil Campbell called our house to come out and play! Unfortunately, I was at work but I told my wife to go have a few on me. After an hour I couldn't take it anymore. I made up a story at work about our cat being sick and I had to leave right away! Within the hour we were drinking cider and talking old times at the hotel with Phil and Dave, Motorhead's merchandising guru. We took a cab to the tour bus which was stocked with more booze. We watched two versions of the new "God Save The Queen" video. Both killed! We watched the South Park movie and the weirdest thing I'd seen in ages- "Brawling Babes!" You gotta see this one! We partied til 1:00 and called it a night. My wife and I both called in sick to work the next day! After recovering from the first night, we arrived at House Of Blues the next afternoon only to be told they weren't honouring any Motorhead passes! What? Are you insane? Bear in mind that not only were our passes given to us by Phil, he signed his name on them! And that's still not good enough? House Of BLOWS! We eventually were given House Of Bullshit passes that allowed us into the dressing room, but, alas, no live photos. This was the first time since 1986 that I didn't photo the band. To quote Metallica- sad, but true! There were three opening bands- Karma To Burn, Supersuckers, and Nashville Pussy so that gave us plenty of time to get hammered backstage. It was pretty chaotic, too! While various members of Supersuckers and Nashville Pussy passed through the dressing room, other inevitable hangers-on and transients pilfered Lemmy's Jack Daniels and Phil's sacred cider. They were not amused! Have some respect! It was also great to see lights tech Tony, who had a near-death electrocution experience in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He showed us the marks on his arm. Scary! We teased Mikkey about his hotel incident. He said it got blown WAY out of proportion. At one point, an aging groupie whose face had obviously seen better decades, entered the dressing room, lifted her top to reveal her size 38D sagging gladbags and asked "Can I get a backstage pass for these?" "Um, no," was the unanimous decision. Bub-bye. "I thought they were puppies!" cracked Tim Butcher, Lemmy's right hand man and resident wise guy. There were other gratuitous displays of bronzed nipple mayhem but enough about that! What about the show? The band exploded with "We Are Motorhead." The band sounded tighter than ever and Phil's solos were smoking! The main floor was one huge mosh pit. We were perched in the 3rd floor balcony adjacent to the dressing room. Not the best place to watch a Motor-gig, but certainly the safest! At one point a chick rushed the stage after Phil and Lemmy! They played about 80 minutes. Here's the set list, in order- We Are Motorhead, Bomber, No Class, I'm So Bad, Over Your Shoulder, Civil War, Metropolis, God Save The Queen, Born To Raise Hell, Stay Outta Jail, Dead Men Tell No Tales, Sacrifice>drum solo, Orgasmatron, Going To Brazil, Iron Fist, Killed By Death. Encore- Ace Of Spades, Overkill.

Ellen and I would like to extend our deepest thanks to the usual suspects- Lemmy, Phil, Mikkey, Tim, Hobbs, Roger, Vito, Tony (great to see you alive, mate!), and Freddie for their continuous hospitality and neverending barrage of decibel overload to bludgeon our eardrums the way only Motorhead can do! Psycho Squad Forever!

Subject: os: regarding pre-voting the set list

It certainly would be possible to vote on tracks for a portion of the set list.

Iron Maiden used a voting system through their web site a few years ago. Fans were allowed to vote for their favorite tracks, and the top 20 tracks were included on the Ed Hunter PC game compilation.

Keep in mind, though, some of the obscure songs may end up getting voted in. Tracks the band has not played in years, or maybe never played. The band would have to be prepared to learn or re-learn to play some songs. Because you know the fans are going to choose the songs they haven't heard live. Right?

Hello - the Atlanta show last night at the Tabernacle was great. Three opening bands, and then Motorhead took the stage and rocked the place. I won't be able to hear for at least another week!

>I have a few questions about "On parole"

I'm not shure, its long time ago, but I think it was Fast Eddie Clarke!

---------- No, please, Volker. Fast Eddie was not yet in the band when On Parole was recorded. It must be the mighty Larry Wallis, a true Rock 'n' Roll sub-hero. God bless him.

He was the writer of City Kids!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so fuckin' proud when I listen to this...

Hello again.

Reply to this one:

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

---------- No, Andy. Leaving Here was a 1960 hit in Motown records, by a one-hit-wonder which I appropriately don't remember the name. But the writers, Holland/Dozier/Holland, are among the greatest songwriters in soul music history.

In the mid-sixties the song was recorded by the Birds (English), which included Ron Wood. Not the Byrds (American).

And then, our favourite band recorded it :-)
Wish you well.

Subject: os: setlist

Hello all.

Well, some people wants motorhead changing their setlist in the shows

now I will tell my personal opinion, this is the setlist I propose:

* Back at the funny farm
* Stay clean
* Rock & roll
* The one to sing the blues
* Iron fist
* Take the blame
* Stone dead forever
* We are the road crew
* Burner
* Stand
* Lost in the ozone
* Heart of stone (I like it very much!!)
* Born to raise hell
* Them, not me
* We are motorhead
* Order / fade to black
* Deaf forever
* Orgasmatron
* Civil war
* Steal your face
* Sacrifice
* Love for sale
* See me burning
* Bomber

----------------------- (the band retires of the stage and come back after 1 minute...)

* Boogie man
* Ace of spades
* Killed by death
* Overkill

Well, this is the list I propose, and I think "Back at the funny farm" would be great to open a show, don't you? but I think it would be too much long for a show, too many songs, but I think the band still have so much power inside and can do it, but well, that's my opinion...

This is truly pitiful !!! I hate to use a word like "lazy" to describe one of the hardest working bands in the world, but I can't think of a better way descibe this atrocity (maybe "stubborn" is a better choice). Note that 14 of the 18 songs are in the EXACT SAME ORDER, including the final 8. I simply don't get it. You'd like to think they would get bored doing the same thing over and over.

Don't get me wrong, the show was great, the energy high, and the new songs sounded awesome (Stay Out of Jail was the highlite of the night). I just wish the boys would work a little harder to give us our money's worth, or else that money may be going elsewhere.

Last episode Artyom wrote:

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 energetic 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,

Just a few answers to some questions...
The singer on Vibrator and Fools off On Parole is neither Lemmy nor Fast Eddie, as he doesnt even play on that album. It is, of course, Larry Wallis. Listen to Fast Eddies voice on Beer Drinkers And Hell Raisers and Step Down... its pretty different. Also, yeah, the Beer Drinkers EP is official! it is contained in its entirety on the Roadrunner issue of the Mot?rhead album... great EP!

Subject: os: we are motorhead album

I have had one or two replies to my comments in OS 101 where I said that I was disappointed with 'We Are Motorhead' and they all appear to be good natured (even the comment about drinking the boat paint). Anyway, it took a few listens but the album has finally grown on me and with the exception of the first two tracks I think that the album is excellent. I know everyone writing to OS has been banging on about 'See Me Burning' but I can't see what all the fuss is about. Personally, I think that this track is lyrically weak and when compared to some of Motorhead's monster openers of the past ('Deaf Forever', 'The One To Sing The Blues', 'Love For Sale' to name a few) it just doesn't seem to have enough quality. As for 'Slow Dance', I have to say that in my opinion (which I am entitled to) this is one of Motorhead's weakest songs ever. The only song I can think of that is worse is probably 'Jack The Ripper' from 'March Or Die'. I just think that the lyrics to 'Slow Dance' are incredibly weak and could have been written in the eighties by any number of crappy hard rock bands (I'm thinking of Poison, Ratt, Motley Crue, even the once great Kiss). I know that Lemmy has the genius to come up with some of the worlds best lyrics but I just think that the first two tracks of the new album are a let down in that department. The rest of the album however is getting better with each play and I especially like 'One More Fucking Time', 'Stagefright', 'Stay out of Jail' and 'We Are Motorhead'.

I've also managed to get a copy of 'Sacrifice' which came out at a time when I wasn't taking much notice and I consequently missed it first time round. My first impressions are that it is a very raw monster of an album with some great lyrics. I look forward to taking this and 'We Are Motorhead' on holiday to Gran Canaria in order to annoy/convert the non Motorhead loving section of my mates. They can stick their George Michael music up their arses.

I've just read an interview with Motorhead in metal Hammer magazine and was puzzled by Phil's comments. When the discussion turned to poorer Motorhead albums, Phil said that 'March Or Die' was even worse than 'Rock 'n' Roll'. I know that MOD is pretty poor, but Phil's comments appear to suggest that RnR is also a stinker. RnR was the first Motorhead album I ever bought and I have always thought it was a very good album. Tracks like 'Rock 'n' Roll, 'Eat the Rich', 'Blackheart, 'Traitor', 'Dogs' and 'All For You' are all classics in my opinion. Also numerous quotes that '1916' was a return to form makes me beleive that 'Rock 'n' Roll' is perhaps Motorhead's most underrated album.

A bit of constructive critisism should not be slagged off. Too many people just say everything a band does is brilliant no matter what.

Subject: os: mhbworld rant

Hi all- Oliver here,

As no doubt many of you have noticed I have moved the site to http://www.motorheadbangers.co.uk For some reason I think I missed the last OS, so there have been a few things people have replied to/said that I think I should mention:

1) Set lists
In reply to the many people complaining about the lack of variety in the set lists I have to agree. Although I love to hear anything Lem & Co play it would be nice to see a few rarities live. The argument has always been "they have to put such-and-such in coz that's what most of the audience came to see". This is true to a certain extent but only really applies to Overkill, Bomber, AOS, Orgasmatron, maybe KBDeath.... what about the rest?

Having said that I realise some songs need 2 guitars to be played, so I guess the guy waiting for Devils to appear is going to be disappointed-me too in fact because I agree that it is Motorhead's best song! Also I for one would not feel a set was complete without Metropolis(the greatest live track ever). so I guess the moral of the story is that you can't please everyone all of the time.

I do know that the current set lists are by no means thrown together. A lot of thought goes into the order and selection of the songs. I guess the moral of the story is that you can't please everyone all of the time.

2) Reviews

Well, the guy who complained about Alan's review (I didn't see his original post, only the replies) has touched on a major problem for Alan, myself, and I think any Motorhead fan who writes reviews. First and foremost, this guy assumes that Alan is not reviewing truthfully. I can tell you though that Alan genuinely appreciates every Motorhead album, as I do. I actually like March Or Die and On Parole (gasps of horror) so what is wrong with me saying so in my reviews?

Now if I were to write a review that said that March Or Die was awful (just because the majority seem to dislike it), would that be a better way of doing it? Then I would just get grief from people who liked the album ("you are a traitor to Motorhead" etc.).

The fact is that it would be ridiculous to tailor ones views to suit everyone else- especially since the reviews are not even aimed at established fans, who can make up their own minds.

Now don't think I'm having a go at this guy, I'm just asking him to consider how difficult it is to please everyone with our reviews. (Consider also that Alan makes no money out of MHBWorld- he does it purely for the love of the band).

Here ends my rant.

YES! The cat. # is: SPV 078-21821 LP. The LP itself looks killing - in my opinion, when they started to manufacture CD the whole thing had lost something, you know that feeling when you take in your hands a huge LP envelope with a giant cover and you can see all the nuances of the artwork, etc., etc... LP looks more like a state of art thing than urban CD...

Hi Ace n' fellowbangers

Due to being let down on the previous sale, I am offering the mega rare Iron Fist Metal Set again. This has to be seen to be believed .. It was issued by Castle Communications and includes the Iron Fist cd (never played - unlike my scratchy vinyl copy!) and a metal fist sculpture of the cd cover. It weighs a couple of pounds and was limited to only 1000 Worldwide. My copy is #279. If any serious collector is interested, please mail me with offers @ smawe@tcd.ie Postage to the States would at a guess be c$20.

Getting to like the new cd more and more I play it .. its a bit of a grower .. shame the boys haven't playted Ireland in years - they would get a great reception.
Thanks Ace for all the work

The festival is on over 27 -29 July at The Coneygrey Showground, Pentrich, Near Ripley, Derbyshire. Tickets are 23 in advance, 28 on the day. Parking 5. Advance Ticket applications must be in by the 12th July.

I think it's a very interesting idea, and why not tolook for musical similarities also? I guess, in the Motorhead it would be interesting... So here are the similarities and references to the old albums that I noticed:

1. Drum intro in 'See Me Burning' is VERY similair to 'Stay Clean' intro
2. The rhythm of the verses of 'Slow Dance' is very similair to 'Over Your Shoulder', and there are some peaces in the chorus that remind of 'Broken'
3. The line 'Turned Around Again' in 'Out To Lunch'is almost a citate from a brilliant b-side of 'I Got Mine' single
4. The rhythm of the 'All yur lives are on the line' verse in 'Wake the Dead' is very cimilair to the rhythm of the chorus in 'Thake The Blame'
5. Parts of 'We Are Motorhead' reminded me of 'Ace Of Spades' intro & 'Death Or Glory'.

and something from the other albums:

'You Better Run' riff is VERY similair to 'Hoochie Coochie Man' and old demo track 'Treat Me Nice'

in 'Nightmare/The Dreamtime' there is a verse in the lyrics: "Golgotha, ACE OF SPADES"

Hey, folks, who noticed some more?!

Greetings Motorheadbangers!

I was at the Motorhead show in Atlanta on Sunday, June 18th. It was a great show, and in the interest of setlist-mania, I thought I'd pass along the list of what they played - this is the exact setlist and correct order or songs [yes, I am a metal nerd 8-]

1. We Are Motorhead
2. Bomber
3.No Class
4. I'm So Bad...
5. Over Your Shoulder
6. Civil War
7. Metropolis
8. God Save the Queen
9. Born To Raise Hell
10. Stay Outta Jail
11. Dead Men Tell No Tales
12. Sacrifice
13. Orgasmatron
14. Goin to Brazil
15. Iron Fist
16. Killed By Deth
17. Ace of Spades
18. Overkill

It was a great, great show! Although the venue seemed to be acoustically non-ideal, that didn't hinder the thunderous ass-kicking of the monsterous performance. Its too bad they didn't play more songs from the fantastic new album, but both "We Are Motorhead" and "Stay Out Of Jail" kicked ass and went down killer! But, as I said, the set rocked, and "The Three Who Are Motorhead' seemed to be having a great time jamming, as usual! I just happened to be in town because Atlanta is where I'm from andI'd planned my wedding there, which was the day before the concert - so, my lovely young wife and I enjoyed a Motorhead honeymoon! We're hoping to see the band again in Prague this fall!

War for War!

Well, a good idea... But what's about those Motorfans who don't have an Internet access? I think that it would be not equal if only those who are into the Internet will vote. It will not show the picture as a whole to Lemmy & Co. Ace wrote that the band is reading this newsletter, so they already know about our wishes for changing the set list. Personally, I think that the main problem is that they play only a hour and a half, if they would play (at least at the 25th Anniversary Tour!) 20-30 minutes more, the problem would disappear, they would add all the songs we are asking for - some from the new album, some old obscure stuff... By the way, folks, do you remember that they never did a proper tour in suuport of the album (I mean at least three songs from the latest release) since Bastards Over Europe Tour!

Subject: os on parole c'mon gimme a break

In answer to Sam And Volker regarding the singer on Vibrator and Fools it was not Eddie Clarke he did not play on the album

Although no credit is given it was probably Larry Wallis he did sing on one or two Pink Faries tracks but never took credit and if you listen to Fools you can see why I doubt very much it was lucas Fox as he was overdubbed but here is a shock biggest chances are it Was LEMMY If you listen to some older hawkwind stuff LEMMY sounds nothing like he does for Motorhead

As for the Whats Wordsworth album is concerned the original rights were owned by Big Beat/Chiswick who then sold them on hence it is constantly being rereleased with a different title but the original is What's Wordsworth on the Big Beat label and features a bust with an axe in it on the cover.

Lemmy was also in a Band called Sam Gopals Dream who as far as I know only released one album called Escalator

Being a british fan for 23 years so if you wanna know anything about early motorhead stuff and collectables drop me an email gonna try and put together a full list for anyone who wants it or maybe Ace may wanna include it

Great New album I'll be catching the band at Notts for my 50+ gig

Subject: motorhead on vh1/set lists

Motorhead appeared on a fairly lameVH1 special called Bad Boys Of Rock. Lame because Motorhead only came in #5, losing to the likes of Nancy-boy Axl Rose! Lemmy told hilarious road tales involving=cheese and oral sex. Some great footage, running about six minutes. The late Wendy O came in at #10. Also, now that I've fully recovered from the Motorhead twi-nighter ten days ago (!), I'd like to add my two cents on the set list. Very true, it's time to change it a bit. Personally, I've heard "Born To Raise Hell", "Going To Brazil", "Metropolis", "Killed By Death", and "Over Your Shoulder" MORE than enough times! OK, here's a few I'd kill to see played live. Most recent songs=first. Keep in mind I didn't even include any Fast Eddie era songs! We'd be here all day!

See Me Burning (shoulda been the opener this time!)
Wake The Dead (much prefered over Stay Outta Jail)
Snake Bite Love (a title track never played live???)
Better Off Dead
Them Not Me
Dog Face Boy
I Am The Sword
Under The Knife (fast version)
Ain't My Crime
Turn You Round Again (only known live recording on the Mad Max vinyl bootleg)
Back At The Funny Farm

Subject: motorhead last night in toronto

many kind thanks on the reply Ace.

I was at the Warehouse in Toronto last night to hear Motorhead. They played for about an hour & twenty minutes. The set was as follows:
We are Motorhead
No Class
Stay Out of Jail
I'm So Bad (Baby I don't Care)
God Save the Queen
Over your Shouldar
Civil War
Going to Brazil
Dead Men Tell no Tales
Overnight Sensation
Born to Raise Hell
Killed by Death
Ace of Spades

Motorhead was entertaining as usual & put on a splendid show, unfortunately the acoutics were hidious. The Warehouse is a metal drum and the feedback & echos took away, from what could have been an awesome show. At one point just before Orgasmatron the lights went out for a split second & Lemmy was appraently hit by a beer can. He became very agitated and called out to security to have the culprit removed. I could observe he was extremely upset by this becuase after doing Orgasmatron ; Lemmy continued on (rightly so) about being hit by a beer can. This was unfortunate incident as it definitely distracted Lemmy and it was quite apparent he was not himself for two or three songs. As a long time Motorhead fan i was pleased "Dead Men Tell NO Tales" was added to the set. (since much has been wriiten about having the sets varied from a fan perspective.

Parting comment (and maybe it's just me getting old) but i wish the Sound crew would reduce the volume so the talent of the band could shine. I am a true believer Lemmy, Phil & Mickey Dee are talented musicians and very much worthwhile listening to, however understanding it is meant to be played loud is certainly fine, but to the point where it is excessive actual becomes counter productive and takes away from Motorhead's true muscianship. Even when Lemmy spoke inbetween songs it was so badly distorted you could hardly make out what he was saying. Again maybe in large part the venue had something to do with it. sincerely, jme

ps - Ace if you receive any other reviews of the mOtorhead concert from Toronto ; i'd be appreciative if you could pass them on-may thanks jme.
