* Razor Magazine will be presenting a webcast of Motorhead and Nashville Pussy's show from the Hollywood Palace. This will debut at http://www.razormagazine.com on Sept 1. This is also the website that will broadcast the final Colt 40 Fienberg show. For those of you that listen to Howard Stern's radio show, you will know who Colt is... Very funny stuff!

* House of Blues Pay-Per-View webcasts will be presenting Nasville Pussy airing on August 13. This show was recorded on the recent stomp across the country that Nasville Pussy did with Motorhead.

* DORO PESCH IS BACK!: (press release) "Having been out of the US music spotlight for over a decade, German rock icon Doro Pesch has returned to show America what's been missing in the current state of hard rock! After captivating & enchanting the audience at this year's March Metal Meltdown in New Jersey, Doro is preparing to unleash a new album through KOCH Records (set for release on September 12th) that will re-position her name to true rock regality.

Although she has kept musically active in Europe over the years, this will be her first US release since 1990's self-titled release. Former vocalist for 80's Metal giants Warlock, Doro felt the need to break away from the 'sword & sorcery' stigma that surrounded the band and spread her wings to focus on a more emotional & personal sound. As a solo artist, she has in excess of eight releases to her credit and has achieved worldwide success. Now it is time for her to re-establish herself on American shores, and in order to achieve this goal, she is prepared to release a very memorable album.

Not a woman to pull any punches, Doro enlisted the assistance of some very noteworthy musicians to compose this magnum opus! She recently teamed up with Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister in Los Angeles to re-record the Motorhead track,"Love Me Forever" in pure, emotive Doro fashion. The song originally appeared on Motorhead's album '1916'. This collaboration also spawned a new track, another duet called "Alone Again". Both songs will appear on her new album, which is now titled 'Calling The Wild'.

If your palate is not yet whet with anticipation, the release also features contributions from Slash (Snakepit, ex-Guns 'N Roses) and Al Pitrelli (Megadeth, ex-Savatage, ex-Asia, etc.). If that wasn't enough to make a mammoth of an album, the proverbial icing on the cake, however, is an amazing Doro-ized cover version of the Billy Idol classic "White Wedding". Guest appearances coupled with Doro's trademark rock ethic of 'stunning beauty meets aggressive beast' will make this an album not to miss!"

* 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!

Step Down is a great song but it should remain in the past. This was "Eddie's number" and will always be a testament to why Eddie was so right for Motorhead and Phil Campbell is so wrong. Likewise Iron Horse - this song is for me the epitome of Motorhead but Motorhead don't play it no more. Why ? It's not a speed/thrash/death metal song and as such Phil Campbell can't bloody play it.

Phil will NEVER be Eddie and there are certain songs that will draw comparison - that's why they are not played!!

Old Fart I may be having first seen the band in 1979 but this is my opinion. Phil is a thrash metal guitarist - Motorhead was never about this. As for God Save the Queen - Jesus - first single in ages and they pick this one!!

I would be delighted to see Eddie take the stage as part of the 25th Celebretations, play Iron Horse/Step Down etc etc and totally blow everyone away. Don't suppose the band will have the balls to do it though. I was a Motorheadbanger up until this year - ironic that such a momentous year has brought about such apathy that I cannot be arsed to resub!! The new album for me has ripped off a number of previous releases especially We Are Motorhead - why not just call it Ace of Spades. At least be honest about it! Not the best album ever to come out of Motorhead - personally my post 1982 release was Another Perfect Day - this was shit live though. Can't say I have been too excited by anything Phil Campbell has done - his guitar work does not send shivers down my spine - the Overkill album 21 years on still does every time I play it.

Despite this I still go to see the band in the UK every year - old habits die hard.

Hello. Mighty Dave said:

There was another 'comedy' album, this time under another name, which was in a similar vein, part music, part dialog (I think - it's about 15 years ago when I heard it!), called Lucky Leif and the Longships, which was a Viking / Norse Mythology sort of thing. It was done by the same mob as the previous album, so if Lemmy featured in Capt. Lockheed, he was probably in the Longships too.

------ Lemmy is not on the Lucky Leif album. It is from '76 and Lemmy wasn't with Hawkwind anymore. But it's another marveluos album the same way.

Dave also said:

I notice that a lot of Motorheadbangers from non-English speaking countries apologize for their 'poor English' when contributing to OS. There's 3 good reasons why that's bollocks.

1) We all speak Motorhead.
2) If they have the balls and the brains and the love of Motorhead to contribute a post in a foreign language, more power to them. They should be proud, not apologizing.
3) Headbanging is the Esperanto of the Rock and Roll world.

No way, step down is probably the worst song motorhead have ever done, let the spice girls sing it maybe, but never again Motorhead... I skip this one when I listen to On Parole.

Also, someone mentioned "Slow Dance" being a weak track. I agree

>would have "buried" it further back!

Slow dance is exceptional, It sounds like no other song, I think it has a kind of magical feel to it, it's slow and fast at the same time. My opinion is that Motorhead have created a new catagorie of song.

Finally, the opening riff to We
>Are Motorhead DOES sound a LOT like "Stone Dead Forever!"
I thought it sounded like "ace of speades" it's exellent any way, come to bordeaux to hear me singing it at the top of my voice in the street, while it's playing in my walkman ;)

Have Fun,

It was a play written by Rob Calvert (from Hawkwind). The band on it was basically Hawkwind (including Lemmy), plus a whole bunch of other people Calvert knew. The album was a big hit (by their standards) and they planned to perform it, but never did or something. It was about the Starfighter fiasco, when Germany tried to patch up their suck-ass air force by buying a bunch of starfighters from Lockheed. Except the Germans wanted a plane to do everything, and the starfighter wasn't designed for that, so Lockheed ripped out a lot of really useful stuff (like the ejection seat) to jam in more electronics. So the German starfighter was mostly useless and almost all of them crashed, and everyone in Germany who wasn't related to a pilot thought it was really funny.

It was originally supposed to have dialogue, but didn't.

Yeah, sort of. It was about the Vikings coming to America and finding this weird backwards modern culture we have. It's a really fucked up concept.

Kelly Harrison asked if Lemmy plays on HW's 'In Search of Space' album.

Well, Kelly, to the best of my knowledge, he doesn't. I've got two copies of the CD, and Lemmy isn't listed on either. Dave Anderson was the Hawks bass player for that album. The first song he played on, I think, was their single "Urban Guerilla" (at least I think he's on the picture sleeve for the single). The first album he played on was 'Doremi Fasol Latido.' His last HW album was 'Warrior on the Edge of Time.' Lemmy "guested" on the song "Night of the Hawks," that HW released in 1982 or 83.

Subject: os: comments, & a question

i have a few comments and questions..

someone said:

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

as far as i know, "you better run" is to the tune of george thorogood & the destroyers (?) "bad to the bone", just with different lyrics. lemmy even put a line in "i'm bad to the bone" also, where can i find "treat me nice"?

someone else said:

:symbol on his.. chest. Sure
:is a free Country. But I,m sure a lot of dumbass rednecks just like him
:slaughtered over i

i'd like to point out that just because he had a swastika on doesn't mean he's a nazi. the swastika has a long history among native americans and other cultures as a symbol of good luck. the reason it was chosen as the nazi syymbol (it was reccomended to them by an occult group) was because it was likable. lemmy even has a swastika (not the standard one as used by the nazi party, but a varied one) on his bass. i quite like the symbol myself because it represents equilibrium to me (all lines going in different directions, yet fit together) and would probably get a tattoo of it if it weren't for people
immediately associating it with nazism.

also, some people were jumping on the guy who jumped on alan..
i don't mean to offend anyone, but i think it's not so much that he said he liked MOD, but the way he described it as "full of headbanging classics".
for an example of what i mean, take iron maiden's synth-laden seventh son of a seventh son. while it's one of my favorite maiden albums, to call it "a headbanger" or "one of their most hard-hitting" would be silly.

one last question: does anyone know of any songs that were on compilations or soundtracks or that are rare or were b-sides and not on remasters? so far, i know of "Hell on Earth" off Hellraiser III soundtrack, which i own.
i also know of "Dead Man's Hand", but i'm not sure which single this was a b-side of? anyone know of any more songs? I've seen a cd called "Stone Deaf Forever" that had some songs like "Waltz of the Vampire"..anyone know anything about this song or cd?

Subject: os: pirates and leavin' here; setlists


Lemmy really didn't play in any band called the Pirates. But first of all he certainly did not play in Johnny Kidd and The Pirates which name should be known by a heavy rock fan for two songs Kidd (who anyway died in a car crash in 1966) gave to the world, Please Don't Touch, originally their first single in '59, and Shakin' All Over, another single gorgeously revived by The Who (and by many, less notable others).
As Leavin' Here turned up, I tried to find something about it, cos it's my favourite song of the very early Motrhead. I found Eddie and Brian Holland, and Lamont Dozier were producers and hit-writers for the legendary Detroiter publisher, Motown between 1962-68. And they wrote many hits for performers among who the most remarkable are maybe The Supremes, The Four Tops and Smokey Robinson, in the style of r'n'b/soul (r'n'b that time wasn't that shit what they call so nowadays) - well, Leavin' Here ain't a very clever lyrics either. It was an early composition of them, but I didn't find who performed it first - does someone know? And yes, The Who also played it in their early days - it seems to be a typical beginning-career song -, and though I never heard it, I saw that they performed it with different lyrics of the choruses - now what could be the all original one?

The all setlist-dispute can be summarized so: everyone has own favourite songs, everyone would like to hear them first of all, and wouldn't like to hear other, different songs. Someone wrote he doesn't stick to hear Overkill more on concert, but I say that Overkill with Stay Clean are my very greatest favourite songs (if I had to name one), so how the hell I wouldn't want to get it. Someone said Born To Raise Hell bores him, but though I saw Motrhead on concert two times, I still did not hear it playing live, and of course I still want to. And vica versa, if I had to choose, I would choose No Class to drop out, but in this case many people surely would say a strong 'No! Class I want!'.
This way it doesn't make sense. The point is that, and what we really could expect, they should vary their setlists several times. I think it almost doesn't matter what they choose to play, they didn't write too many shit. The voting on the net is maybe not a bad idea, but frankly, I don't think it would have a perspective in the case of Motrhead (I can't imagine Lemmy memorizing a printed paper of what to play on a certain night).

you, he toured here in 1997.

Man, if you're 'pretty sure', that doesn't mean you know the things. If you're not sure totally, don't write then. Don't show your stupidity.

I didn't hear so much about Sweden, so I don't say that 'I'm pretty sure' but I suspect that swedish people have TV, radio, daily newspapers and TP aswell. Anyway, if there is the lack of TP in Sweden, that's not a problem, because you can always wipe your butt by 'daily newspaper' despite it paints ass.

Probably, next time you'll write that you defecated in your pants while listening to 'March or Die' song because it's pretty scary or something.

What was up with the cancelling of the show at the Trocedero Club in Philadelphia at the last minute? You left about 500 diehard Motorhead fans hanging and pretty pissed off. You are lucky a riot didn't start especially after the reason for your cancellation got around the crowd. Sound system not loud enough??? I realize you have a reputation to live up to but the other bands sounded damn good to me. I have been trying 17years to see you guys and this is the 3rd cancellation. I drove 100 miles one way to get there and spent money on beer,tolls,beer,parking,beer,meals, and my valuable time. I think you owe your fans an expanation.

All of you out there,

contact a guy called Michael eavis and his organisers (he/they are the people responsible for putting on Glastonbury Festival in the U.K.) wear him down with repeated requests to get the band to play there.It can be done.You have a whole year until the next one.I was there this year and it went something like this, many fine musicians, many fine acts of great variety,the best party atmosphere you are likely to fine anywhere,180,000+ attendance,5 main stages, and some of the worst so called rock acts i have seen, i mean dross, (amongst many, a perfect circle? a perfect asshole and so on and so forth) how do these people get away with it? That led me to thinking just half an hour by the band, no ,15 minutes would be enough to shame many of them,and enlighten many more.That really would be something, live B.B.C. coverage and all, do yourselves a favour and go there, June 2001.The fields of Pilton and Motorhead.

Reply to Schnee (Andy Barnes) who said:

First off, I got the Sam Gopal album (escalator) (via http://www.boxman.co.uk) and its actually quite a good listen. (Bearing in mind it was 1968ish) Shades of very early Sabbath, Hendrix and even Led Zep in places. Hearing Lemmy's voice on this album leads me to be even more convinced about the on going dispute "who sings various songs on On Parole?". It is Lemmy, and you can call me Susan if it isn't so!

------ I'm sorry, Susan, but if Lemmy sings on "Fools" you can call me Maria Madalena! I would say "Vibrator" too, but I found I'd better take care...

Just kiddin', Schnee. You rock.

Ah, and you got a great album. I recommend pre-Motorhead stuff to everyone. Mainly the mighty Hawkwind.

Hello again.

In response to Kelly Harrison... Lemmy didn't play on the In Search of Space Album by Hawkwind. It was recorded in 1971 before Lemmy's arrival. But the remastered CD (EMI England) has three bonus tracks, and one of them is the single version of "Silver Machine", which has Lemmy's lead vocals overdubbed. The single was released in 1972 becoming the band's greatest hit forever and their signature song for the masses. Figure Hawkwind's "Ace of Spades" :-)

Best wishes.

Glad to see that you got some merch on the site! Yeah, I flew out from FL to the Boise, ID show which got cancelled! I just saw them=last month with Nashville Pussy=in Atlanta and Charleston. Got a couple of still shots, nothing great, just nashville videos....

Subject: os: lemmy on metal hammer

Lemmy is on the cover of Metal Hammer this month here in Italy. The picture is rather weird: Lemmy is in the twilight, looking sad and with tears in his eyes. Despite his mood is a beautiful photo, I dare to say. I was at the photo session but I can't remember what was up with him. Inside there is a good interview to him, Phil and Mikkey talking about "We are Motorhead" and its lack of solos. Also other interesting topics like what didn't work with "Snake Bite Love" and about Wurzel's departure. Michael "Wurzel" Burston wasn't able to play well the guitar anymore, mostly because of his frequent booze, particularly Mikkey was getting tired for Wurzel's playing. They were going to take a decision to do something, perhaps to fire him but, fortunately, Michael himself decided to leave. Another question was made, they had to answer where is the best place to play: Lemmy liked a lot the dates in South America, "the widest audience in the world" he says. "No it wasn't - says Mikkey - we played some time ago at a festival in Budapest in front of a crowd of 200.000", but they all three agree that is impossible to understand anything at such crowded shows, Phil adds that is much better to play in small clubs, in front of crowds of 2.000, the "live feel" is indescribable.

I understand there has been a big discussion of whether or not Motorhead should mix up=their set list=or not. I suppose many of you are getting tired of the entire subject by now, so I won't "say"=much... To a certain extent I can agree with some of you=who feel they need to play some new and obscure songs. Hell, there are lots of MH stuff I would love=to hear live, but probably never will. What some of you seem to forget, though, is the fact that not all of us have been to 20+ MH gigs (I have been to 2), and those of us who haven't would really like to hear the classics played live!

That was my sixth Motorhead concert, the first ever was May 1982 whereby Fist (a band from Ottawa) and Krokus open for them.

Subject: os: the motrhead font (true type)

Hello fellows,

dear members of the list,

well,well, after an exessive saturday - night - gig in Dortmund , Germany , 15 of july , my ears still ringing - yes, and today its monday night !! I was wearing earplugs , yes I did, because after 20 years of motrheadache (you can call me live time addict ), I will like to hear the guys again and again in the future.
So dont be shy to wear them - it isnt worsening the sound experience at a show.

Motrhead were entering the stage very late after a short break from "ROLLINS BAND" who were also quite good. The set list wasnt a surprise after watching so much reports of the last U.S. -Tour .
Only the sound volume really blast me off. I thought they were LOUD in the Mid-eighties and nineties , but this time it was like war. As the show was part of the mayor skateboard world championship there were a lot of younger people in the audience ,but mainly in the back of the venue. In the pit there were a lot of older faces seen. The guy at the mixing desk told me after the show that Motrhead will be travelling to Bulgeria for a show or two , so If anybody knows more details , let us know - please. Also I missed the opportunity to speak to Klaus Fabry who I saw in the foyer of the venue , but couldnt speak to him because if I did that I hadnt met my friends for the show - due it was only a short time until showtime. So, Klaus wenn Du das hier liet, bitte mail mich doch mal an. The worst thing in Dortmund was that they hadnt had a merchandise stand. Nothing , neither inside or outside the hall not a single shirt. I couldnt believe it. As a collector of Motrhead -Tour-Shirts this was really disappointing. So we have to wait untill the autumn - tour. Motrhead also made an appereance at the "Harald - Schmidt - Show " on the German television (SAT 1) on Thursday , 2 days before the Dortmund -Gig,. I think they were the only metal band ever on the programme AND they performed live, with the full backline (but without our loved "Snaggletooth" - Banner) at the end of the show. Its the german rip-off of "the David - Letterman- Show" . But the guy who runs it made announcements for the Dortmund gig and for a tour in October here in Germany . So better such a kind of advert than nothing .

Now I have a question to the complete list :

Does anybody know a link in the web, where we can download the true type font of "MOTRHEAD" ???????

I would be very pleased if somebody can help me.....

See you on the road,

Dirk Von Schack.

Subject: os: 25 years on

Ace and all,

As Thursday 20th July 2000 is the 25th anniversary of the first Motorhead live gig (at the Roundhouse in London) I'd like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the band members, past and present, for the music and, well just being there. I am fortunate(?) to be old enough that a friend of mine played me the Motorhead and Overkill albums just after the latters release and they have been 'my' band ever since. I got Bomber in the week of its release and have bought every official album since, on day one of issue. Seeing them live over the years, and with the changes in line-up, they have never failed to live up to my expectations. Putting aside the petty writings in previous OS's about this drummer being better than that, or Eddie this or Phil that, they have all been, and ARE all part of Motorhead. History and present. And for that I am grateful to them all. Sure, some albums have a higher number of great tracks than others, but we are all different. I personally have favourites which others have said they really dislike. Likewise I sometimes read comments raving about a track which I would normally skip on the CD player. That is part of the appeal of the band. Lemmy has always said that he writes music for himself, and if others like it then it's a bonus. I don't like them all, but most of them. I guess that's why they remain my favourite band. I am also very lucky to have been able, in recent times, to meet the band and I have to say that they are always happy to talk to the fans, and are always friendly. Not like some others of superstar status that forget how they got to where they are. The band and their fans are one big world wide family. I have got to know more people from across the world through Motorhead than in any other way, many through this list - thanks Ace - and although most I have never met I am still able to call them friends. I am sure they feel the same. The common link is the love of this band and its music.

So to Larry, Lucas, Eddie, Brian, Pete, Wurzel, Philthy, Phil and Mikkey. To Alan - for the fan club for all these years, aided by Mick. And of course, To Lemmy - THANK YOU! "A million real good times". And to everyone I have met along the way. I suppose to ask for another twenty five years would be pushing it - for me not them!! - but here's hoping.

If all of that sounds mushy or crap - tough!! It's how I feel and if it's all I do to put a bit back then it's worth it.

Chris Sage
See you all "On the Road".

Hello all,

With th resurgence of Maiden, the KISS farewell tour, and Sabbath shirts of old albums popping up on the Internet, in stores, and concerts, wouldn't it be neat to have a reprint of the great artwork of Joe Petagno on a shirt? Like Overkill, Bomber, Ace of Spades, No Sleep Til Hammersmith, etc. And here's an idea: How about putting a Lemmy quote from one of the remastered albums on the back of the tee? Like "only two people--good ones and bastards" Just a thought. What do you all think?

MOTORHEAD - Not Butts About It
Added: July 15th, 2000
As reported by music365, MOTORHEAD frontman Lemmy stormed out of a TV studio recently just minutes before a live interview - because producers asked him to put his cigarette out. Lem had sparked up a snout while waiting to be interviewed on the BBC Choice nightly arts and entertainment magazine Liquid News, but got the hump when he was politely asked to extinguish the tab in the non-smoking studio. A BBC spokesman confirmed that Lemmy was a no-show, but added that the man who gave us 'Ace Of Spades' didn't leave the building immediately - he found time to stop off in the hospitality suite to chug the best part of a bottle of Jack Daniels. The fuming Lemmy was due to appear on Liquid News to promote Motorhead's new single 'God Save The Queen'.

In Iss. 104 Percy wrote about a drum roll in We Are... being much the same as one in Nothing Up My Sleeve from the Orgasmatron album. I'm sure he's right - I've not checked it out. The guitar intro's on the two tracks are pretty much the same as well. I figured that the idea was to re-work an old musical section with a new lyric - hence the We Are Motorhead title etc,. Am I wrong?!! As Lem now seems reluctant to play the 'Motorhead' track live I believe this may become the anthem track for the new millenium. Time will tell.
