Hello All! I have a few topics that I need to address before we proceed...

First off, a lot of you know that the Motorhead website went down last week for a few days. Here is the story... Next Level has been expanding by leaps and bounds over the past several months. We finally acquired our own server and naturally decided to move all of our sites to our one server. For those of you that do not know, moving a site involves contact with InterNIC... one of the slowest, we-will-do-it-when-we-get-to-it kind of organizations. We miscalculated the amount of time it would take for them to reroute the pointers to the site. Oh well, all is OK now...

Second, my interview with Lemmy got postponed until this week. They have been hard at work in the studio and I expect to hear some cool news...

Third, I got a cool tape in the mail today from Motorhead... it is a recording of their show at the Circus in Stockholm, Sweden on 3/17/97. We will presenting this show (in it's entirety) via Real Audio on the Official Motorhead website to kickoff a cool new concept... MOTORHEAD LIVE THROUGH TIME. As regularly as we can, we will present shows from every tour Motorhead has ever done. We will start with Overnight Sensation and go backwards. You will be able to hear how the band evolved their live performances. WHat do you think of that!

That is about it for now...

Subject: os: lemmy should be in mentos commercial!

From: shluzas@juno.com (David R Kellerman)

Me and two friends were sitting in a classy hotel drinking tea and generally being cultured and alla that when we cam up with a cool idea: Lemmy in a Mentos commercial!
The idea is, first, of course, it's got the same old annoying Mentos music, then Lemmy's walking down the street. He stops in front of the liquor store, which is closed with fences or whatever covering the door. He spots the guy inside and points to his watch which says 5 or 10 minutes to the hour. The guy in the store makes a gesture indicating "There's nothing I can do!" So Lemmy pops a Mentos and punches in the big plate glass windows. He walks in, picks up a vat of vodka, and walks out. It then cuts to a shot of the clerk with his head leaning 45 degrees to the side, shaking his head and smiling. Then it shows Lemmy attempt to spin around hold out the thing of Mentos with one hand while still holding the vat of vodka. He drops the vat and starts swearing and punching stuff. End commercial.
I asked Lemmy about the idea on the oh-so-great-is-my-third-bookmark-on-Netscape Motorhead homepage. I have yet to hear a reply, but I can imagine it would be a good one. Everyone I've told the idea to thinks it's funny as hell.
Another Lemmy appearance that I know of but have not actually seen: he was interviewed by Gilbert Godfried (uggh) on USA Up All Night. Supposedly at one point Gilbert's being stupid (why, I'm shocked!) and Lemmy yells out "I HAVE KNIVES!" Gilbert also plays the clarinet and offers Lemmy a weird piece of 50 year old WWII era chocolate he found in his grandmother's couch.

-Bill Parcells

Hold it right there, El Guapo, or I'll fill you so full of lead you'll be using your dick as a pencil!

**Editor: I forward the questions to Lemmy for the LEMMY SPEAKS section, but Lemmy decides which ones he will answer...

Subject: os: lemmy's opinion of bootlegs

Wot ho, MHB's! Thought I'd add Herr Lemster's very own words regarding bootlegs. I had the great honour to interview him twice, and, after telling how much Motorstuff I'd acquired over the last sixteen years, he said "You've prob'ly got all the bootlegs then?" I hesitated to answer, not knowing his thoughts on the matter. "Yes", I said, "I hope you don't mind 'cos I know you don't make any money from them." "True", said Lemmy, "but I don't lose any, either!" So don't worry, MHB's, as long as you spread the word about the great monster known as Motorhead, Lemmy will always be your friend! Or your sister, if he feels the urge...

Ah, I wish I still had a proper band together for this tribute thing. I used to be in a band that covered "No Voices in the Sky". Not a big music scene where I am now, alas ....

Indeed. I was there and it was great. I was really pleased to see what a good mix of ages there were in the audience. With some help from my friends, a number of younger types (well, I'm only 26 myself!) from the Cambridge U. Rock Society were convinced to go--and universally agreed it rocked :) Several went out to make their first MH purchases the next day, and MH t-shirts are now more widely observable at the pub nights. Hope for the younger generation :)

A friend of mine came up from London to see the show--he hadn't seen Motorhead since the Bomber tour came to the Cambridge Corn Exchange when he was a student! At that show, Lemmy had handed him his beer can. No such luck this time ;) but he delighted to find that the band was still a Force of Nature.

A good time for all the family.

Ah, what's this tape then?? I seem to have missed something important here!!


**Editor: OK, one more time...

A short while ago, Castle Records was very generous and sent me a whole bunch of copies of a new sampler cassette they put out called "May I Help You". It has seven tracks (as follows):

Side One

1. Iron Maiden - The Trooper
2. Slo Burn - Pilot The Dune
3. Salmon - Dome
4. Lit - Beginning

Side Two

1. W.A.S.P. - Killahead
2. Masters Of Reality - (Song Title covered by sticker)
3. Motorhead - Ace Of Spades!!

This tape is not sold in stores and is intended to be used as a sample of some of the bands on Castle's label. It is a promo only and therefore has some collectors value.

OK, here is the deal... Overnight Sensation members in North America send me $3 US, elsewhere, $5 US. This money is to cover the cost of the bubble envelope and the postage. I am not trying to make anything off of this, but this is the best why I can think of to get you people the tapes without putting me in the poor house.

Hi all motorheadbangers around the world. I have a question that I hope that someone out there can answer. Is the new Motorhead record King Biscuit Flower Hour going to be released in Sweden? If it is, then when? It would be great if someone could answer that question. I also want to say that Ace is doing a great job.

Subject: re: overnight sensation issue #16

Re reviews/ censorship
As the author of the review of the Brixton gig which attracted reply, I was disappointed to be on the receiving end of a stream of abuse for my trouble. I re-read the review and still find it to be measured and favourable. I would hate to think that liking Motorhead requires complete suspension of all critical faculties! It was timely that the intemperate response coincided with your questions re censorship. Generally, I'm in agreement that censorship shouldn't be necessary but self regulation necessarily involves consideration for the views and sensitivities of other users, something apparently lacking in our correspondent.! There wasn't really any need for the foul language either as far as I can see- much more of that and I'll be desubscribing! I hope it won't be necessary.

Is there a person named Guillermo Jauregui on this list? If so I notified you 3x already that you are a winner in the KBFH MH Contest. You have not responded. I must give the info over to KBFH with your address ASAP. If I don't receive it, I have no choice but to let the next person get a shot at winning. I'm being as fair as possible.

Subject: OS: Bootlegs

yeah bootlegs is a difficult field. by many considered illegal, i think it's time to remember that bootlegs are NOT counterfeits or pirate releases. these are the type of illegal releases that an artist WILL lose money from. by buying a counterfeit/pirated album you're STEALING the money that should have gone to your fav' artist (for beer & women supposedly :) bootlegging is a bit different. if you're buying a boot, chances are you've got EVERYTHING (or closing in on) the band/artist have ever released.... ie usually people don't buy a boot instead of a 'proper' release. i AGREE that bootlegging STILL should be kept 'illegal' - not on legal reasons, but for other reasons...: makes it more fun to collect :) you know that those that made that particluar boot not neccesarily are big business bosses with $s only in their eyes. keep things underground folks! but remember nobody would f.i. have heard live dylan recordings from the sixties without bootlegging...! or *proper* beatles live concert tapes... or pink floyds NEVER released 'the man and the journey'? same goes for motorhead! capture the moment - what is nicer than going to a show, and then - by pure accident - finding a cd recorded at THAT show! magic! (chances are you didn't remember the show anyway, due to heave celebrating of a well done show afterwards :)

well, keep the beer in the right mouth! and visit my motorhead site: http://www.fiskaren.no/zwentzen


ps. i saw mentioned the re-release of the rockin' vickers/vicars stuff.... anybody with any info? thanks

**Editor: I have to agree... I was lucky enough to happen upon a CD bootleg of a Pink Floyd show I attended in California. The recording is crappy, but it is the fact that I WAS THERE... somewhere in that screaming crowd is me in awe of the utter spectical I was witnessing. This is worth a great deal to me!

Subject: os: bootlegs

Hello Ace,

I would like to add my 2 cents about bootlegs. I own various bootlegs on vinyl, compact disc and cassette. Why do I buy and trade them? I love the bands and especially the live material. If the record labels made this material available to the public I would buy it but they don't.

I can see where you would be concerned about including ads for bootlegs in the mailing list and I agree with your decision not to include them if you were asked to. Censorship is one thing and respect for Lemmy and the band is another.

Subject: os: os16 comment from james vaughan

Dear Ace,
In OS15 there was a review of the recent Brixton gig which described exactly how Motorhead were on the night - fantastic. The reviewer, however, apparently made a fatal mistake in the eyes of James Vaughan and was honest. She pointed out that Mickey Dee "missed" on one or two occasions.

It takes a special kind of drummer to survive a Motorhead gig let alone a whole tour and the odd missed shot is understandable. Sure, she did not have to mention the fact but then what is the point of reviewing a gig. If James had taken the time to read the whole review, he would have realised that the reviewer is obviously a great fan of Motorhead and was simply reporting the facts.

James Vaughan's response however, is not what OS should be encouraging. In the same issue of OS, the dreaded word censorship was mentioned. If the likes of James are allowed to articulate themselves with abusive language then it will only be a matter of time before people start unsubscribing to OS. I for one, know of several OS readers who have let their kids subscribe and will be horrified to read OS 16.

Finally, whilst 400 miles is quite a journey, the reviewer in question travelled from the west coast of Ireland to see Motorhead. I don't know which is further, Glasgow or Ireland, but who cares, I thought Motorhead mattered?


**Editor: It is a difficult question for me to address. Censorship, flaming, all of the nasties that come along with the territory. Lets all try to remember a few things... #1 is that we are all brought to this forum by a mutual love for a band and their music. In that alone we all have something in common. #2 is that we all have different opinions... I am loathe to not publish one opinion just because it is diametrically apposed to another. I will take steps to deal with obscene language in the future, but it is up to all of you to get along.

Hi again Ace,

We have a band called Raw Deal and we also want to be part of the tribute album. I have sent my favourites once before we like to do, but also some else song could be on our playlist (for example All For You, which is also a great one);

1) No Voices In The Sky
2) Bomber
3) Born to Raise Hell

Looking forward to hear you soon Ace!

Personally, I don't consider a bootleg a bad thing that hurts the band in any way. The fans that collect that stuff buy ALL stuff, including official releases. The band will hardly sell a copy less of their official releases. What worries me, is the chance of the band or music industry ending this mailing list and/or the Motorhead homepage because of people offering bootlegs, openly tape trading and stuff like that.

G'day Motorheadbangers!

Please visit my site and download the unofficial Motorhead Windows 95 Desktop Theme. It's in it's early stages at present and only has a few sounds the cursors are not very interesting yet. However it's under constant development and more will be added soon.

Also why doesn't Lemmy ever answer any of my questions on the 'Ask Lemmy' page of the official site? Ours not to reason why, ours but to headbang and die.

not so much a question more a statement of fact. saw the band in wolverhampton in october this year after riding 100 miles or so to get there. it was nearly 17 years to the day from when i first saw motorhead in bristol and you're still the best. two hours of jumping up and down and having a rare old time. the journey home the next morning in the ice and fog was well worth it. keep on doing it.
