Legendary documentary film maker is haveing a retrospective of his films and photographs in Los Angeles this week. The event will also include the US prevue of his latest film - "Lemmy". All Los Angeles based Motorhead fans are welcome to come and check out the film.

The show is being held at the Goethe Institut German Cultural Center in Los Angeles. It is located at 5750 Wilshire Blvd. The Lemmy film screens on Thursday, May 2 at 7 p.m. In addition, On April 28th, there will be a screening of another of Peter's films, "Nina Hagen-Punk & Glory" which also features Lemmy.

A second LEMMY preview is in New York City May 22nd at Anthology Film Archives (one show). It is located at 32 Sec Ave & 2nd Street (Tel: 212-5055181) (after the Nina Hagen film that starts May 15th for a week, 2 shows daily).

The Lemmy film has been years in the making - if you are an L.A. based Motorhead fan, you owe it to yourself to check out this film. See you there!


Now that Motorhead's latest opus is unleashed on the masses, the masses have responded by giving Hammered a big thumb up. Hammered climbed in the German official charts to 39 !!!!

Billboard Magazine had this to say:

Album Title: Hammered
Producer(s): Metal-Is/Sanctuary 85229
Genre: POP
Source: PRINT
Originally Reviewed: April 27, 2002

When bassist/vocalist Lemmy growls "Rip it up!" on the opening track of Hammered, the metal trio unrelentingly bludgeons your ears on command. After more than a quarter-century of tearing up aural turf, the forerunners of thrash still ooze attitude that permeates this disc. Here and there, Lemmy, drummer Mikkey Dee, and guitarist Philip Campbell fall victim to the occupational hazard of sounding formulaic, but there is no denying the great harmonies they grind out of pulse-pounding party-starters like "Walk a Crooked Mile" and "Mine All Mine." Bonus track "The Game" is a wicked slice of anthemic metal that World Wrestling Federation fans will recognize as the theme song of superstar Triple H, who stepped out of the ring to contribute vocals to the sinister spoken-word passage "Serial Killer."

A Motrhead must-have.-CLT

Sanctuary says that it is the fastest selling new release they have ever published. Keep it up everyone... it looks like some people out there are finally taking notice!

From the BBC website:
Prime Minister Tony Blair, suffering his worst drop in popularity since the 1997 election of New Labour, has decided to emulate previous Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson's granting of Knighthoods to The Beatles.

Tony Blair is planning to announce a small number of rock and pop icons in the Honours list for the Queen's Birthday. Strongly tipped are Paul Weller and Ian "Lemmy" Kilminster who are known to be favourites of the Prime Minister. In his youth Tony Blair played guitar in a band and a few years ago donated his guitar to the Royal Scottish Museum for their modern icons exhibit.

The Prime Minister should however note that while Harold Wilson's move did improve his image with Britain's youth, it produced anger amongst some of the older generation, some of whom returned their medals to Downing Street in protest. A spokesman at Downing Street pointed out that the music industry was one of Britain's great export successes and that it was felt that this should be recognised in New Labour's efforts to promote commerce and business.

Montreal bars
Ace, have you got a clue which bar in Montreal that a discerning band such as Motorhead might frequent? I'm a long-time fan and I'm about to drive 12 hours in order to catch them in Montreal for my first ever Motorhead show! I'd love to see them prior or after the show. Any word on a vinyl release? I'm assuming SPV in Germany as usual?

It's been too long since Lemmy & co. have been in town. I've always made it a mission to see Mhead since I was a teenager. Last gig in NYC i was up in th' VIP area w/ my brother and gave Lemmy the ol' salute, He returned it, finished his beer and went downstairs and tore the roof off the place.

You'd asked about Motorhead merchandise ideas an issue or two ago. How about an action figure of Snaggletooth? Someone (McFarland?) has done one of Eddie (Iron Maiden), so why not? Get Joe Petagno to design it.
Also, back patches for jackets. I made one out of an old 1916 tour shirt years ago, but I've never seen one already made for sale.

On another note...my husband and I are going to NYC in May...any Motorheadbangers up there? If anyone can tell me about the best places to see bands, buy music, etc., I'd be pleased. My husband lived up there about 13 years ago, so I'm sure things have changed since then. (He did see the Ramones over 260 times growing up, which is pretty damn cool!)

Thanks for all you do, Ace!

This place is only a few blocks from the House of Blues and we can tip a few pints before we really get "Hammered" by the boys.

Hello All!

Let me start by saying that I will finally get to see Motorhead live! They are coming to Salt Lake City, yes even mormons(though I am not one) can be headbangers! Though why in the christ are they playing at a shitty little club like bricks I don't know. They would be better off playing at Salt Air, Ace you should get them to change venues. I don't think Lemmy and the boys would like playing at a club like bricks.

But onto the point, I was wondering what everyone's fav MH song is? Mine happens to be I ain't no nice guy after all. This song got me into MotorHead and I still love it to this day. I think that March or Die is one their better if understated albums.

Hi all and Ace,
Hammered really kicks so great fucking asses. It is a mix between Sacrifice and Bastards but it still has it?s own style and offcourse it?s ass kicking Motorhead attitude. So to all who still haven?t got the album BUY IT !!! You won?t regret it even if you don?t like Motorhead buy it! If you don?t like the album still buy it! If you don?t like Metal fucking buy it! Because it?s a great album.

Subject: OS: HAMMERED sweeps the Czech Republic

Greetings fellow Motorheadbangers! Well, Hammered was unleashed in Europe last Monday. Actually, the big music megastore in Prague was already selling it since the previous Friday [which I think is a no-no, but that's rock and roll for ya]. Somehow, I was able to hold out for obtaining it at my favorite little heavy music shop, but two visitis to this place on Monday failed to deliver. But the guy who runs the shop told me that it should arrive at least the next day. So, on my way through town on Tuesday, I spied a woman wearing a little skirt, the slit of which was so high up that I could see the top of her stocking. "Oh yeah, that must be a good omen that I'll obtain HAMMERED today," I thought - and it was true!

The moment I cranked it up for the first time, I knew this would be an especially killer album. After listening to it for a week now, I really find it to be nothing short of monumental!

Someone remarked in the previous OS issue that HAMMERED feels like the "most complete" Motorhead album in some time. I guess I'd have to agree. Statements like this are dangerous, because I think that Snakebite Love and We ARe Motorhead are both fantastic albums, but HAMMERED somehow feels more expressive and inspired. Lemmy's vocals and lyrics definitely sound especially inspired on this one, while Phil does some of his meanest, dirtiest riffing ever. As for Mickey Dee, "the best drummer in the world" definitely has the coolest drumming style going these days, he hammers every song! Every song on this album is great!

So far, my favorite Motorhead cd is Sacrifice. When the dust clears, it might end up being HAMMERED.

Subject: More Potpourri

OK, Lemmy has been living in the United Staes for a number of years now right? Has he been here long enough to become a naturalized citizen, or is he still a resident alien? Even if he is naturalized, he cannot become President of The United Sates, since only native-born Americans can do that, and I am sure that thought vexes Lemmy greatly, as I am sure that he aspires to be President someday.
On Easter, I was watching that fuckin' lying lackey, Pope John Paul 2, and he was singing, and it occurred to me that Lemmy's singing voice is way beter than this old fraud's was. The same thought occurred to me when I heard Mr. John ashcroft, the Attorney General of The United Staes ( the top Pig in America), sing some lame fuckin' tune that he had written. Lemmy' svoice is way btter that this guy's too, and Lemmy is so much cooler that the fuckin' lying Pope or some motherfuckin' Mega-Pig dude as well.
Is this movie thing with Lemmy a documentary or some dumb fuckin' flick of some kind?
Does Lemmy take insulion for his diabetes? If so, he doesn't have to inject it does he? I don't think he'd like to have to do that.
Any truth to the rumor that Philthy Animal Taylor is Al Gore now? Or that Wurzel is now Tony Blair? Or that Lucas

I saw where someone said that Lemmy was a baseball fan now. Does that mean that he spends some of his summer nights hobnobbing with the glitterati over at Dodger Stadium? Maybe he could sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" or "God Bless
America" there one day.
They let hard liquor advertise on TV here in America now. It was never really banned, the beverage companies did it voluntarily, and now that all the old farts that ran those companies are dead or retired, they no longer are doing this. Jack Daniels is one of these companies. They have these fuckin' boring ads showing distillers and shit like that, talking about history, and are oh so dull. They need a celebrity spokesman. I nominate Lemmy for this position. After all, he is an avid user of their product and has been for many years now. It would be so much better to see an ad that showed a Motorhead concert and the rock and roll glory inherent in that. Then they could show Lemmy relaxing backstage, nubile nymphs and supplicant sylphs at his side, talking about how he liked to relax with some Jack Daniel's after a hard day's work, which is what a Motorhead show is for him. This would be a great commercial, so much so that I would not grab the remote and start to flip through channels until it's over, like I do with their usual boring shit.

Hey Ace,
I went to my first ever Motorhead show this past Tuesday in Sauget, Illinois. I've been wanting to see Motorhead for years. I was not disappointed. They band played great. Lemmy looked good and in top form. There was a few surprises in the set. I didn't expect "God Save The Queen" or "Stay Out Of Jail" or "Just Cause You've Got The Power". They played a song which I think was "Damage Case". When Hammered came out, I needed that and Overkill to complete my Motorhead collection. So Overkill is the only album that I haven't heard all of as of now. The only new song they played was "Brave New World". The show was a dream come true. I had one of the best times of my life, and, boy, did my ears hurt the next morning.

Subject: Re: Motorhead in Providence RI and more.

-Dear Motorhead fans, and I mean the real ones who understand the philosophy and the spirit of Motorhead.
I went to see Motorhead at Lupo's in Providence Rhodes Island last night and I can tell you the band is in great shape, although Lemmy said that he couldn't sing well, but we all thought he was doing great, at least those of us who were there for the music, and we didn't seem to form the majority of the audience. The light show was great too with strobe lights and fog. And there were some fantastic guitar effects very reminiscent of Hawkwind.
I have been a fan of Motorhead since 1977 and bought-and still proudly own- the first Motorhead album on Chiswick records with the Clark Taylor Kilminster line up when it came out. It has the swastika on the snaggletooth as well as tons of small pics when you open it. I have also been a fan of Hawkwind since 1972 when I first heard Silver Machine.
I saw my first Motorhead show in 1978 in Paris France in a place called the Bataclan for the Overkill tour. It was a great gig-one of the ten best shows I have ever seen- where the shear volume and the quality of the music and its delivery made it a pure out of body experience. The crowd was made of some pretty tough characters-I was quite young- but no one came to the show with the intention of being violent or harming any one. And this is what I would like to mention to you all. The crowds that go see Motorhead- and I am sure other bands too- have changed completely in their composition. Yesterday I thought that I was at a meeting of dudes from American History X. One person next to me was priming his little group for whom he was the Hero and the guy to look up to by telling them things like "This is your right of passage, use your fists in a spinning way, don't be afraid to become ultra violent, " and more exhortations to useless meaningless acts of violence. The guy looked like a recruiter for some neo nazi group. Scary. Those guys are not punks, they are not skinheads in their philosophy either-skinheads are anarchists. I deplore the body slamming, body surfing antics of today. Don't they realize that the concrete floor of a small night club is not made of the same material as a mosh pit ??? If at least they didn't wear steel toed combat boots.
Nowadays you can't really enjoy the show because you must constantly be on the look out for someone crashing in your face and possibly breaking your nose or other annoying interference.
The ring of violence-for there is no other way to put- just seemed to widened so much and the level of violence increased so much that after 45 minutes my friends and I decided that it was better to leave. The vibes were just awful. You could feel that something really bad was going to happen, either during the show or afterwards. Even Motorhead is not worth taking a chance of getting your face kicked in-or worse- by some neo nazi or other brainless individual.
Motorhead is not about violence. It is first and foremost about great rock and roll and the possibility of experiencing something that most bands can only dream of delivering to their audiences if they can imagine that far. I have often heard Lemmy during shows voicing his opinion about such attitude, mentioning that we are all here for the music and to enjoy the show and not hurt each other. I think he even said something to that effect yesterday.
There is a big difference between yelling and raising your hand in the air and intentionally slamming your body or pushing someone else into someone to cause bodily harm.
I will be honest and say that not all were like that, but it seemed to me that the greater majority were. The scene reminded me of videos of Neo Nazi rallies listening to their brand of hard core music and body slamming each other beer bottles in one hand and the other raised in Hitler salute fashion.
What the hell happened here?
Anyways that's all from me for now, although I could keep on writing about the subject for a long time.
And if you read that far well maybe you already agree with me or you might realize that Motorhead shows are not there to satisfy your lust for violence and hopefully become a more educated and cool individual.

Ace how about posting a list of Lemmy's favorite books, and not just the Stephen King collection, in order to promote the Lemmy way of thinking worldwide and educate the masses? Just kidding.

And by the way Ace a great job on the web site and the newsletter, as usual.

Many people have gotten all flustered at some of the things that I have written in here in the past, shit about society, the Pigs, etc. To those people I suggest that you don't get a copy of "Hammered", because Lemmy has some of these very same themes in some of the songs. For a change here in America, instead of preening pussies putting out whatever Mr. Businessman and his cronies tell them to, we get a release that tells these people to go and fuck off.

Oh, it is great to hear Lemmy talking about the way that America runs its fucked up society, a way that they wish to export to where you live forthwith, in "Brave New World". To see someone say that the fuckin' Government is just a bunch of motherfuckin' Pigs that are intent on producing a Police State so that they can profit off of it instead of saying how great they are is a breath of fresh air. To hear the laws being mocked and the practice of throwing one and all into prison treated with comtempt is what needs to be said today. Heed his words, as this mentality is coming your way in the name of "civilization.
It is even better to see a song that is saying what horseshit war actually is with "Voices From The War". To hear Lemmy question the mentalrty behind that shit is heartening. Here in America today, nothing is questioned anymore. War is everywhere, on the TV, on the radio, on the Internet. It is glorified and lionized in excelsior right now. The statements that Lemmy makes and the questions that he asks are ones that have to be looked at right now and are not.
To hear warriors not being lauded as heroes and valiant and all that shit unequivically is much needed now. All this war shit needs to be questioned, and questioned in detail at that. Lemmy shows that he still has his mind, even though he is in America now, and all citizens have been requested to give theirs to the Pigs for safekeeping. His is the voice of reason in a malestrom of insanity.
Another great thing is to see religion and theh shit that it is being spoken of in "No Remorse." The intractable, fanatical, unyielding mentality that Lemmy speaks of there is what has brought us to the state that we are at in society today. That religion shit is like the original way that man devised to subjugate and control his fellow man in the name of his own fuckin' self and no one else. An institution that has done immeasurable harm to society like this needs to spoken of in the terms that Lemmy does. He shows why he adheres to the doctrine of freedom on this CD by saying this and all that other shit. Free speech like this must be promoted in these times or else they shall get much worse. The musical community has been a major letdown in this area lately. Lemmy shows that he has not forgotten or forsaken these things on this CD.He is doing what so much of the rest of his community will not do. For these reasons alonne, I am glad that I got this CD. Plus there are a lot of good songs on there too, and that makes it even better.
I see that HHH's contribution to the CD was pretty miniscule and insignificant, and now I understand why they have not been promoting the fact that HHH is on it on the WWF TV shows. I also see that fuckin' Ron Jeremy has his name in the thanks part again. But will that fuckin' porcupine put any Lemmy pictures on his lame fuckin' site? Probably not.
But Motorhead should not want to be associated with Ron Jeremy these days, because that fucker is looking awful old and cashed out as he hawks some dick size increaser or some such bullshit on late night infomercials.
In a time where someone that was once considered the epitome of heaviness like Ozzy can be turned into Fred Flintstone by Mr. Businessman and TV, it is good to see that Lemmy is still as heavy as ever.

Subject: OS: Motorhead on NewMusic

I have seen a couple of neat Motorhead things lately.
First: The Virgin Records superstore here in Vancouver has been promoting return of 'Rock". Lately, all the staff have been wearing shirts that say "Praise Lemmy" on the front, and something like "let there be rock" on the back. Not that most of them even know Motorhead - the store didn't have the new CD in when it was released.
Second: a music tv station here called MuchMoreMusic has a show called NewMusic, which are repeats of these early 80's music shows from Toronto, which basically is where MuchMusic came from. On Saturday night, they aired a show from 1981 that interviewed Lemmy, Philthy and Fast Eddie in a Toronto record store while on tour for Ace of Spades. It was very cool. Philthy was hilarious. Eddie looked drugged out. Lemmy looked younger but otherwise the same. The interviewer was JD Roberts - who now is John Roberts of CBS Evening News.
On another NewMusic episode (still in early 80's) there was an interview with April Wine. They started talking about a show they played with Motorhead in Europe. Motorhead were the openers, but April Wine asked if they could play first because they were afraid the crowd would leave due to the "unreasonable" level of volume MH played at.
cool stuff!

**Ace: Down hear in LA, the TOWER records stores have these little flyers you can have for free that give the "Escential Albums" of any given genre. In the Metal one, they list NO REMORSE. In the underground one, they list a Hawkwind album. Someone in the Tower PR department must like Motorhead!

Saw Motorhead in Poughkeepsie last night. Fabulous performance. Hammered is great. So why are they only performing one song off it (Brave New World)? I was hoping to hear a lot more than that. 'Walk A Crooked Mile' would've made a great opening tune live. What's up with this?

Subject: Toronto concert @ the Docks April 27th

Quick review for interest parties. Sound clarity & quality 100 % improvement from the Warehouse concert 2 years ago. Lemmy & Phil weren't thrilled with microphone feedback, eventually got sorted out by 6th song. Set was (not necessarily in order ; geez i'm doing this from memory folks) We are Motorhead/ No class/ Bomber/ Damage Case/ Shoot you in the Back/ Nothin up my Sleeve/ Born to Raise hell/ Brave new World/ God Save the Queen/ Ramones/ Stay out of Jail/ Sacrifice/ Civil War/ Metropolis/ Just cos you Got the Power/ Iron Fist/ Ace of Spades/Love 4 Sale/Going to Brazil.
I was hoping they play for new material from Hammered ie: Crooked Mile. Brave New World the only one. geez, abit strange ? Good size crowd. Warm up bands ; nothing to write home about ; just "ok". scenery was at times very nice. Overall : very well done ; good job boys! well worth the price of admission. ijme

Subject: OS: Is R'n'R racist?

I don't think so!!!
It's a shame that something I had never thought of before, and undoubtedly something that wouldn't have ocurred to most R'n'R fans, should suddenly come out into light from its dark crevice. The incident that instigated this email happened a month or so ago, when I was travelling home from a charity concert Iron Maiden played in London.
It was a great gig, everyone getting along well with each other, the beers kept flowing, fantastic set-list with a surprise oldie song thrown in, etc. Around the venue, fans recognised me as someone who runs a Motorhead website. It was pleasing to go to see another band's gig and still bump into Motorhead brothers and sisters. As with any R'n'R gig, no matter what nationality or social class anyone's from, everyone in the audience treated each other as equals, just the way things should be.
But on the way home, the negative attitude of a minority of fans opened itself to me. I happen to be in the same train carriage as some hard-core Metallica fan who was yelling off-putting remarks against various bands including Motorhead. Of course, as a devoted fan of Lemmy & Co's, I had to take the bullets for our men, so I walked over to defend the band. I spoke to him very politely, talking about how recognised Lemmy is for his songwriting skills, reminding him about the various bands like Metallica who were influenced by Motorhead (this person happened to be wearing a Metallica T-shirt), the band's determination to keep going on for now 27 years, and so on. And what does he say in return? That I should keep out of this conversation because metal is not for black people - followed by that ass-hole punching me in the chest. Unsurprisingly, the other passengers in the train did nothing - after all, why should they help out a "heavy metal fan in distress", as we are often wrongfully branded as troublemakers. Luckily I wasn't hurt, but it opened my eyes to people out there who don't understand that R'n'R is an international language shared by people who follow a common interest, and it's all about having a good time regardless of skin-colour, culture, social background, class, etc.

I myself am of Asian origin and living in England, and cultural differences between fans has never been a point of attention at the Rock 'n' Roll gigs I've attended. Whenever I go to a gig by, such as, Motorhead, my country of origin is totally forgotten as I'm accepted into the one of the very few worlds where I'm regarded as an equal. Culture, skin-colour or country of origin never segregates us - because we all understand that there is only one culture amongst us, which is Motorhead.
Lemmy has mentioned in many interviews that he can never understand why racism exists anywhere. He calls himself "a citizen of the world" and not a citizen of one particular country. Some of his girlfriends are black.
In the "Motorhead Speaks" section in Ace-T's website, a few years ago Lemmy rebuked a fan for giving a racist question. And when a neo-Nazi presented Lemmy with some Nazi book, Lemmy immediately threw it into a bin and pissed on it (according a magazine article)! As Stefano Loi very well put it when he mentioned the international presence in his 25th Anniversary report on this mail-list, "We're all from different nationalities, but brothers and sisters under the same Motorhead flag." Despite the negative views from narrow-minded artistes like Screwdriver, that former singer from Morbid Angel, and some European-based devil-worship bands preaching that Satan only wants white-skinned peope inhabiting the Earth, racism has no place in Rock 'n' Roll. Hey, wasn't Jimi Hendrix one of the forefathers of our favourite music!
That occasion in the train made me very upset, because unfortunately there are people who're trying to bring in this misunderstanding and unwanted hatred into our international R'n'R community. It's a pitiful memory but will easily fade with time, because I know that's not the typical attitude of the majority of metal / R'n'R fans. Undeniably, racism concerning Rock 'n' Roll comes from all sides around me. I get criticised by fellow Asians because of my musical taste.
They complain that I'm swaying away from my culture and they insist I should instead be listening to music that other Asians listen to. People like that I regard just as bad as that person on the train, thinking that R'n'R is race-specific. Now, why the fuck hould I listen to bhangra music when I don't even like it?! It doesn't make me a traitor to the Asian
community just because of differences in taste!

When I listen to Motorhead or any other metal/R'n'R band, I'm pleased that I'm trully being myself, because I'm enjoying something of my OWN choice and I'm not not just sheepishly following the majority of people around me. Anyone who likes Motorhead has his personal reasons for liking them. I don't understand those people who tell me what I should like and dislike, and expect me to be comfortable with it. Full enjoyment is always about freely doing something suited to your own taste and not letting yourself to be disctated by somebody else's taste. Having said that, I can't make a racist change his taste towards other nationalities, but at least he should have the intelligence to realise that R'n'R is multi-national.

R'n'R is part of my identity and I'm proud of it, because I enjoy it without having to hide it in the closet. Being of Asian origin is part of my identity, only because I'm born and bought up with it. Being British is also part of my identity. Working as a computer system analyst/programmer is part of my identity because I'm qualified for it. I like to eat chicken & mushroom pie, is also part of my identity! They're all separate things, totally irrelevant and unrelated to each other, and totally pointless for these qualities to interfere with one another.

What next? My Director telling me to steer clear from heavy metal because it's not meant for people working at posh companies. I've already had that from one of my managers... Fuck that if he thinks I'm going to listen to Beethoven!

Subject: OS: setlist from toronto

Ok, here are the songs that were played in Toronto on april 27th. They are not in order, and I'm doing them all from memory, so I hope I didn't forget any:

- We are motorhead
- Bomber
- No class
- Going to Brazil
- Sacrifice (awesome drum solo in the middle)
- Shoot you in the back
- Damage Case
- (I don't know the name of this one, but I think it was 'Just because you have the power...etc.)
- Ramones
- God save the queen
- Born to raise hell
- Brave new world
- Civil war
- Love for sale
- Stay out of jail
- Nothing up my sleeve
- Killed by death (killer guitar solo at the end)
- Metropolis
The encore was:
- Ace of Spades
- Overkill

The band played really well, they sounded great (of course!). Lemmy was getting a lot of feedback from his mic, and wasn't too happy about it. He introduced metropolis as: 'this next song is Metropolis with feedback!'. Still has that sense of humour. Phil and Mikkey also interacted with the crowd quite a bit, they were great. An awesome time was had by all. Keep up the great work Ace!
