Greetings Fellow Motorheadbangers!!

* Hello again! Sorry for the delay on this issue. I have been slammed on deadlines for several other projects and, sadly, this one took a back seat for a few weeks. The good news is that there is a lot to tell you about. Lemmy is over in England right now doing some dates with the Foo Fighters at Dave Grohl's request. He will be back here in the US tomorrow to join
the band for a date on Sept 4 in Seattle at the famous Bumpershoot festival. Rumours are that Dave will also perform at the 25th Anniversary show with Motorhead on October 22.

* The biggest news is the release of a special 25th Anniversary double CD set called "The Best of Motorhead". Here is what Castle has to say about it:
To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of one of the world's greatest metal bands, Motorhead, the fast growing Metal-Is label is proud to present a career spanning 40 track digitally remastered CD entitled simply, "The Best Of Motorhead.

This is the first time that such a comprehensive Motorhead collection has been made available. Hit singles including 'Ace Of Spades', 'Bomber', 'Overkill', 'Please Don't Touch' (performed with Girlschool as Headgirl) are all amongst this band authorised and personally selected set. Titles from all the important periods of the band's recording history have been carefully chosen. From their very early legendary Stiff Records label releases, through the Chiswick & Bronze eras right up to present day recordings, with their controversial cover of 'God Save The Queen' - taken from the recently released We Are Motorhead album. Added to this are 4 previously unreleased concert cuts from the early eighties when the band were selling-out tours on a regular basis, and were a legendary live attraction.
With recent triumphant appearances at a number of summer festivals in the UK & Europe, Motorhead will be touring later this year. In the meantime however, you can enjoy in one sitting the full history of a band that has been at the forefront of metal music for a quarter of a century - so they must be doing something right!

Have a look at the cover for the CD addition:

The Best Of Motrhead, catalogue number MISDD 002, is released on the Metal-Is label on Monday 28th August 2000. You can pre-order your copy today by visiting this link: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00004X0AS/blastmagazine0c

NB: a deluxe triple vinyl version of the album will also be available with a specially commissioned cover by famed Motorhead artist Joe Petagno and bonus 7" EP single. This is a limited edition, individually numbered format.

Have a look at the cover for the special vinyl addition: http://www.imotorhead.com/discography/mislp002.jpg

* I spent an evening over at Lemmy's house with Paul Higgins (graphics guru of the Motorhead website) and we were treated to some special items. Lemmy played us several tracks that were recorded for March or Die that didn't make the album. He also played us a country track that he played on. It was a wonderful evening with a lot of insight into the man and his music.

* OS Y2K Shirts - The time has come again! The second annual offering of the official OVERNIGHT SENSATION MAILING LIST T-SHIRT is upon us! We have a killer new design for this years image that is made exclusively for members of the OS list. As many of you that bought last year's shirt realize, the OS shirts are a great way for OS members to find each other at shows. This year's shirt features artwork by long time OS member Paul Higgins. Paul is also the graphics wizard that created many of the images that grace the official Motorhead website.

The first edition of these shirts sold out quickly and have become one of the most desirable and rare Motorhead t-shirt collectable known! Don't miss out on this edition!!

To order one (or several as many of you did last time), please go to http://www.imotorhead.com/tshirt2000.htm

Initial response to these has been poor. If we don't pick things up, I will have to cancel the project. We need to print at least 100 shirts to make this worth while. This means that only one in 30 of you need to buy. So far there are about 15 orders. Come on people, lets get with it! This is your list and you have to participate if you want special things like this to happen.

* Official Motorhead Tour Merchandise - Bravado Internation Group (BIG) is the company that is in charge of all the merchandise for Motorhead has informed me that they will not be reprinting any materials in the near future. In fact, the next time they print will be when the band tours the US again (next year). So, I have several orders for materials that I do not have. I will be contacting you all individually to offer alternatives or refunds. Please be patient as I have a lot to get through.

* 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 Oct 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!

* 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. A special thanks to all of you that have done so already. 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!

From: Gooda Edward - edward.gooda@winterthur.com

On 28 July, we were fortunate enough to interview Lemmy at the Guildford Live event 2000. This is what happened:

Guildford experienced torrential rain on Friday. I have never seen anything like it in the UK. Roads were flooded. The traffic to and from the event was dreadful. We arrived looking like drowned rats. We were cold and pissed off.

Motorhead were headlining this years festival and most of the crowd we suitably clad in denim, black leather and Motorhead T-shirts. Their time slot on stage spanned 9.50pm - 11pm. At 8.30pm we were ushered into the backstage area and into the Motorhead tour bus.

Entering the bus, we are asked to turn a sharp right, up a narrow staircase. The bus is decorated in dark blue throughout. At the top of the stairs, a stale waft of cigarettes and sweat along with number of unmade bunk beds greet us. I wonder who sleeps where. I look forwards, over the shoulders of the 3 people in front of me. Lemmy is sitting alone at the back of the bus, staring at a portable television set and grappling with a playstation joystick. We introduce ourselves and I take a seat next to Lemmy and start setting up. Lemmy concentrates on lighting another cigarette and topping up his pint of Jack Daniels and Coke.

ED: Lemmy, you've got some tour dates coming up at the end of the year.


ED: Can you give us any information about that?

LEMMY: Don't know about any of them yet. They always get changed at a minute before, you know? So I just get on the bus - they take me wherever we're going, you know what I mean?

ED: OK but you're going to do a UK tour?

LEMMY: Yeah.

ED: End of the year?

LEMMY: Yeah.

ED: Excellent.

LEMMY: I can safely say we'll be playing London, Manchester and Glasgow.

JEZ: Back at the [London] Astoria?

LEMMY: I don't know yet, maybe. I'd like to play the Astoria again.

JEZ: What about Brixton?

LEMMY: Brixton I get a good sound on stage. The Astoria's better. [coughs]

ED: Do you prefer playing your own gigs rather than these festivals?

LEMMY: Well, this is our own gig - we're top of the bill. Ah ha! That's what makes sure that it's your gig or not - top of the bill. Otherwise, you're supporting, you know?

ED: Sure. Fair enough. And how does it feel to be 25 years old as a band?

LEMMY: Same as it did to be 10 years old except 15 years later. Really, nothing changes, you know. We're a band. We play, you know. That's it - thats what we do.

ED: What are you doing to celebrate this year?

LEMMY: I'm going to have a steak and kidney pie and a glass of milk! [Laughs] Yeah, I dunno yet. It depends, you know.

ED: Your book's coming out this year, is that right?

LEMMY: It's supposed to be, aye. If it ever fucking gets out.

ED: Right.

LEMMY [pointing to the microphone] It's an ice lolly, that. [Laughs] It's an ice lolly with gangrene growing on it.

ED: OK Lemmy, so we might have a book later this year.

LEMMY: Yeah, you might. But it won't be mine. [Laughs]

ED: And a video?

LEMMY: What video?

ED: Erm, well on the website it says 'Coming Soon' for about, what is it, 2 years now?

LEMMY: I know.

ED: What's the news on that?

LEMMY: Well there's all kinds of hold ups, you know. It's one of them things - it's too bad. It'll be out when it's out, I guess. You know, I mean, it's like, fatal trying to get anything orgainised with this band, I can tell you [laughs]. Forget anything - I've been playing my guitars for 4 years and only one of them works - the only one he didn't repair. [Laughs - at this point someone knocks a can of coke over] What? Mind the cokes there, eh - cunt!

ED: So, how long are you in the UK for, because you've got another gig on Sunday?

LEMMY: Another 2 shows - we've got, er, Derby tomorrow and Swansea on Sunday. Swaaaaansea - Welsh cunts!

ED: And then what after that? Are you back to the States?

LEMMY: Yeah. Gonna have a month off. Fuck 'em. I've booked the fucking time.

ED: Just taking it easy in L.A.?

LEMMY: Yeah. It's a good place to take it easy, L.A.

ED: Yeah? I've never been there, what's it like?

LEMMY: Hot, naked and cheaper!

ED: You don't miss living in the UK then?

LEMMY: Not for half an hour.

ED: Great. Lemmy, there's a lot of shit going around about you being a Nazi and stuff.

LEMMY: Oh, that one.

ED: And, er, Nik Moore says, you know, Lemmy's not a Nazi and why don't you just say you're not a fucking Nazi?

LEMMY: Well, why don't you just take his word for it? [In a German accent] I know he is not a Nazi! Everything like this! Yes, I was in Peterborough Blinkenshire house being born! And, er going on the roundabout [Changes to very English accent], don't you know, old chap, and jolly old smoke in the holes and, er, everything! [Back to German] And I was head of Gestapo for 12 years! Ahh! Five years [Roars with laughter] No, no, I made a mistake!

ED: Well, that confirms it then!

LEMMY: What it is, is I collect Nazi stuff but I don't collect the ideas, right, because they're obviously right bigoted boring assholes, you know. I've got a black girlfriend and anyway I think that speaks for itself, probably. So too bad there, no headline.

ED: Yeah, sure. We're hoping to send a copy of this over to Ace Trump.

LEMMY: Ah, the dreaded Ace!

ED: Have you got a word for Ace and the readers of the O/S magazine?

LEMMY: Hello Ace, I just trumped your card!

JEZ: One word.

LEMMY: What? Erm, 'Porridge!'. 'Fussock!'. 'Wazzock!'. 'Poontang!'. [More roars of laughter]

ED: He's sending stuff round about 2000 people every couple of weeks.


ED: He's promoting you guys which I guess is a good thing.

LEMMY: He does a good web site, I guess, you know. Can't complain there. Although he hasn't sent no birds round.

ED: We'll have a word with him about that!

LEMMY: Distinct lack of blow jobs! I was forced to go and get my own the other night! In the backyard giving myself a blow job [laughs]. Unpleasant bending, you know! [Turns to the doorway] Can you have a look if my hat's downstairs 'cos if it isn't, it's been stolen...

ED: What about Mr Burridge?

LEMMY: What about him?

ED: Alan Burridge - you got a word for him?

LEMMY: Alan Burridge is a marvelous person. Been with us, what, 20 years now .He does it for nothing - I send him a few things now and again you know, but, like - he's a trooper. Lasted longer than most of the band members!

ED: How's the new album selling?

LEMMY: Better than the others so far, for a long time, yeah, it's the best seller we've had for a while. 'Cos we've actually got adverts in some of the papers now. They're actually playing the video on TV, I heard, I dunno if it's true or not - is it true?

ED: I heard there was something on MTV.

LEMMY: Ah, something.

ED: You happy with it?

LEMMY: What?

ED: You happy with the new album?

LEMMY: Yeah, you - you wouldn't have heard it. We don't put things out we're not happy with. That's why we're broke! [Yet more laughter]

ED: And you've got 'God Save The Queen' coming out on Monday, I think, over here?

LEMMY: Yeah.

ED: Do you expect that to do well?

LEMMY: I expect it to do what it'll do, you know. I mean, hopefully it'll do well. Can't plan nothing like that.

ED: Any plans for another album?

LEMMY: Well, we make one every year, man. So I guess we're gonna do one in about a year.

ED: You haven't started work on it yet?

LEMMY: Fuck, no. Must finish selling this one yet.

ED: No plans for a live album - anything like that - I guess you have one...

LEMMY: We just did one last year. Bit early for another one yet.

With that a radio journalist stole my glory - well, it was his turn and my 10 minutes had already overrun. Lemmy didn't seem to mind too much. After the radio interview, I asked Lemmy if we could have some pictures with him. Ever the gentleman, he agreed. He allowed us to take our time and when we were done we showed ourselves out.

The band hit the stage a little late - probably about 10pm. For an outdoor festival Motorhead were (surprisingly!) loud. They opened with We Are Motorhead, then Bomber, then (in no particular order) Metropolis, God Save The Queen, Sacrifice, Going to Brazil, Iron Fist, Civil War, Killed By Death; and Ace of Spades and Overkill for deserts. Mikkey had a roaring drum solo half way through. Some stupid shit through a can at Lemmy which erupted over his Bass guitar. Lemmy calmly approached the microphone after he had dried off his guitar and invited the twat that through the drink up on stage. 'Don't stand there and throw things at me' he said 'get your ass up here and I'll punch your fucking lights out, you fucking cunt!'

After the show, Lemmy, Phil and Mikkey were on good form. They knew that the gig had gone well but they had 2 more over the next 2 days to cope with. After a couple of beers, we headed home - at about 1am - as the gear was still being packed away...

Subject: os: guitar slot: now or then?

I'm new to the list so, please excuse anything that's allready been said. About Phil and Fast Eddie, I'd say they were both great, the guitar players that best fit Motorhead. The best lineups are the classic and the one going on now. Period. Lemmy did say the new linup was the best ever, but as Frank Zappa was fond of saying, "My favorite band is the one I'm currently working with."

Subject: os: old tour dates -- bring 'em back

Hey Ace,

Thanks as always for keeping up this cool list. I just wanted to add another voice in support of publishing the old tour dates. I thought those were a great resource, and I saved a copy of the list. I even wrote to Stefano to thank him and ask him if I maybe missed some. I can't believe people complained about it. If you don't want to read it, there's something called a scroll bar on the side of your screen that allows you to skip things you don't like. Try it.

Thanks again Stefano. That looks like a lot of work.

Subject: os: motorhead and stickers

hey Ace and Wacky Motorhead Folk:

I've been listening to Motorhead for a long time, and I think every album is a great one. I couldn't believe the sound of Overkill or Ace of Spades when I was just a metal-goob in high school, and I can't stop playing We Are Motorhead today! I've read things on this post about March or Die and Another Perfect Day being weak. I love 'em all, and have the lyrics to March or Die up in my office, and I play Motorhead, Soulfly, and Hatebreed in my office cube to keep people away. Anyway, the point is, it's all Motorhead, whether a bass line is similar to some other song, or a drum intro. I still can't believe there's=a band like Motorhead around, and I'm thankful that the new releases pack a punch lyrically and musically. I do agree that they could play a different set list from year to year, as I'd like to hear any song live. I was amazed when they played "Shine" last year.=

But also, does anyone know where I can get a small bumper sticker with just the motorhead/snaggletooth skull on it? I'll buy 10 of them I don't care I need one for a Honda Insight, which has hardly any rear end on it, not enough space for the Everything Louder bumper stickers I have. I'd say "Cheers" which I like better but I'm from the states so,

see ya!

I can`t believe this whole diskussion-shit around Eddie and Phil. It is simple. Eddie left whining because of some stupid childish fuck-reason. Phil stayes with Lemmy and delivers great ideas and great songs for Motorhead. He`s in the band now three times longer than Eddie. He`s the best Git.player Motorhead ever had and Mickey is the best drummer Motorhead ever had. Why?? Because they kill for each other. Point blank. End of discussion.

Subject: os: one day soon, size might matter!

Leaving Here - The new lyrics?

"Hey fellows have you heard the news,
Ace and his work are being misused,
Seen some lazy bastards in a dream last night,
Theyre leaving this list 'cause they don't feel right,
Hey fellows better change your ways,
Or Artyom kick your ass in a matter of days,
I dont say I agree but its the same old song,
The size of this letter might be getting to long."


And now- for the real message:

Personally I have no problem with including past tourdate lists on the OS. Most people who are here now probably dont. I agree with Artyom that if you dont have enough energy to hit the pagedown button a couple of times youre a lazy bastard.

On the other hand, those people are putting their finger on something that might be a problem in the not so distant future. Ace are doing a great job, the site is growing and so are the OS newsletter. Right now its about perfect in size. Takes about half an hour to read through and comes about twice a month. But imagine what it will be like when (Im not saying "if") the number of subscribers and contributors are ten times what they are now. Or higher. Size might not matter to us longtime diehard-fans, but this newletter should (IMHO) not be just for us. It should also be fun for newcomers and those who are totally new fans of Motorhead music. Growth in itself can become the problem if the shere amount of contributions scares away those newscomers (and others). Another problem with the growth is that it gets increasingly difficult to follow the different topics that are being discussed over a number of newsletter.

Dont get me wrong now. I love the OS-Newsletter. But as a general phenomenon I think a newsletter is a solution best suited for websites that have a smaller number of visitors than Aces Motorhead-site now have. Since Im familiar with a site that has passed this stage and found its solution to its similar problem Im gonna finish off this with giving you a short introduction to it. A couple of years ago an australian cartoonist started this site with speechbubble-competitions on scenes taken from famous sci-fi movies and tv-series. And he decided to let his fans write in and suggest the scenes he was gonna draw. Since then things have grown tremendously. His site now have hundreds of thousands of visitors each month. Pretty fast it became impossible to use ordinary email so he took the suggestion-procedure and placed it itself on the site. Even that became insufficient than the number of contributions increased so now theres three boards, one for suggesting ideas for cartoons, one for discussing more general subjects about the site and related items, and one for personal non-site-related contacts between the fans. The first one is called the ideaboard and it looks like this:


the second one is called the discussionboard and it looks like this:


Maybe it is time for the OS-newsletter to transform into something like this. Not because its bad but because its good. Its growing and its gonna reach the point where some fans just not have the time to read all of it. Lazy bastards or not, internet is about easy access. If we forget that, and the OS outgrows that, it might become more a place of internal admiration than a place there the snaggletoth community is being enlarged. I think that a Motorhead discussionboard like those linked to above would get enough contributions to be worth visiting every day. And in the long run it would have higher MH-promotional capacity than a newsletter could possibly have, no matter how good. Thats my opinion, but its bound to be misunderstood I guess :-)

Dont hate me for having ideas!

Dear Motorheadbangers around the world,

this is Oliver Kmpf, Motorheadbangers Germany writing.

1. Last week I stayed at the UK for the 3 Motorhead openair festivals. They played 70 minutes. The setlist contained: We are Motorhead, Bomber, No Class, Im so bad, Over your shoulder, Civil War, Metro, God save, Dead men tell no tales, Sacrifice, Orgasmatron, Brazil, Iron Fist, Killed by Death, Ace of Spades, Overkill. At Guildford and the biker open air at Derby the following MHBs were around:
Klaus Fabry, Bernd Adler and Thomas from Germany Mick Stevenson, Robert Kiewick, Chris Sage, Sarmand Seikh and Nigel from the UK. We had lots of fun altogether and some lots of free backstage beer. The concert at Swansea was more familary. Only Chris, Bernd, Klaus and me stayed around at the backstage area. Phils family, Psycho Squad and Wayne was there too. Great to see Phil with family and friends.

2. As you might know I am still doing a motorheaddiscography. It contains 1300 LPs, CDs, 7", 12", MC, Video, Books. If you like to have a copy, please send 4 IRCs, or 10 German Marks. If you have any additional listings for my discography - you get one for free.

That's a real piece of fun. And well put.

Regarding the question of Schneider about the ''7 of Lemmy & the Upsetters, I can say that the 2 songs on it are Blue suede shoes (from Carl Perkins) and Paradise (from lemmy and Mike Green). Sorry, no E. Presley songs.

You can find those songs on the "Lemmy - Born to lose live to win" CD (Connoisseur Records).

I happened to stumble across http://www.cafepress.com a while back and saw that they offer a service whereby that re-sell merchandise for just about anyone. Now I realise the way you're offering it on the website is probably working fine for you, however, being halfway around the world from you (South Africa), one definately needs registered mail or one never will see the goods(I speak from experience-not your goods though). Just wandering if you'd consider that channel as well. Also, now that I'm here, I've been a fan since '80, the first time I heard Motorhead I new they were for me. It must be wonderful to be able to complain about the setlists etc seeing that you all have seen tham a couple of times. It has been my ambition since '80 to see them but being stuck here on the other side of the world there's no chance of that. So stop the shit and appreciate the fact that you people can at lease get to see them. On all of my trips(not too many) to Europe or USA, I've unfortunately never timed it right. I've read the book, listened to the CD's(LP's in those days) watched the video, have a T-shirt(want more hence the above) and have never fucken seen them live. So enjoy!!

" God Save The Queen

They made you a moron
Potential H-bomb

God Save The Queen
She ain't no human being
There is no more future
In England's dreaming

Don't be told what you want

There's no future no future
No future for you

God Save The Queen
We mean it man
We love our Queen
God saves

God Save The Queen
'Cos tourist are money
Our figure Head
Is not what she seems

Oh God save history
God save your mad parade
Oh Lord God have mercy
All crimes are paid

When there's no future
How can there be sin?
We're the flowers in the dustbin
We're the poison in your human machine
We're the future you're furure

God Save The Queen
We mean it man
We love our Queen
God Saves

God Save The Queen

Found this one on the knac.com, seems to be of interest for us:

On Dee's new release Never Let The Bastards Get You Down, DEE SAYS: I listen to my old demo tapes sometimes. There are literally hundreds of songs I've never released. I chose the songs for this album because they were the ones that stood out to me, the ones I found myself humming when I was driving down the road. These are some killer songs, each of them with it's own reason for standing out in my memory over the years. "Hard Core," for example, comes out of my deep (non-sexual) love for Lemmy Kilmister from Motorhead. I wrote that song as a tribute to him. He actually recorded it himself a few years back for a movie soundtrack, but it was never released on disc. Tune in as The Rack talks live to Dee in this KNAC.COM exclusive.

I just finished reading the Thomas Harris book HANNIBAL. There is a bit where Dr. Lecter is treating a man to an impromptu frontal lobotomy with a silver spoon. The man then breaks out into song, singing "the tuneless recitation ... of a lengthy lewd verse called 'Shine'". Is this the song we all know? Lemmy once has recommended a Harris book in an interview.

"Protect The Innocent" is one of the best box sets that Motorhead ever released. It's 4 CDs contain ALL the singles 1977 - 1992 with all the b-sides as long as cool songs from the albums that were never released as a single. Overall there are 68 songs - and all the hits and rarities are here! The pakage contains also a poster with Ace Of Spades cover on the one side and the cover of the box set itself on the other side. But the main treasure is the 60 page booklet devoted to Joe Petagno and his drawings and their place in Motorhead history, here is possible to find rough drawings of covers as long as never used pictures (here is also an initial drawing of "we Are Motorhead" cover - this drawing is of year 1986!). This box is a must for every serious Motorhead fan! It's cat#: ESF CD 562/GAS0000562ESF. What else can I add?! BUY OR DIE!

I have listened to "Alone Again" off of the forthcoming "Calling the Wild" release by metal queen Doro. Lemmy sounds great! Very rich tone almost a haunting quality to his voice---the song is a great collaboration with Doro. I think a song like this would actually get airplay. I think the song can still be heard in the listening bar at electricbasement.com, if it's still up. Check it out.

Subject: OS: barnburner suggestions for playing live

Granted, Motorhead has tons of songs that could be performed live. Two closet classics that immediately grab my attention for performing live are "Limb from Limb" and "Snaggletooth". The reason "Limb from Limb" would be a great live one is that is starts out slowly with a good bass groove, and then it changes speeds, snowballing downhill with crashiing drums and outrageous guitar runs. This would be a good showcase for the whole band, especially Mikkey. Snaggletooth is the basic "straight for the throat" Motorhead style that would fit nicely into any set. Even though it's a single not on a studio LP, I think this song would showcase everyone's playing.
It's fun to dream :-)
