Hello Friends!!

Well, I talked to the management company yesterday and they told me that the North American tour dates are coming together... unfortunately there is nothing close to me!!! :-(

Anyway, I have been working hard on a new project that will debut very soon. It's a new on-line music magazine and it should be real fun! I'll send you more info as it becomes available.

The new site should be available soon with all Real Audio files intact!! I can't wait for you all to hear this fantastic labor of love.

Oh yeah, I'm on this ICQ thing now, so if any of you bangers want to drop me a line, I am at 6055706.

Until next week...

Ace Trump

**Editor: I got several e-mails about his little comment (it's good to know your listening!). Anyway, a little while ago we celebrated the first anniversary of our little list and I ask the readers to send in their favorite Motorhead story. I sent a special promo only CD to everyone that contributed and sent me their snail mail addresses. If you were not included in the original e-mail, don't worry about it. I have a handfull left over that I will give away in some crafty manor... keep reading!

Subject: os: favorite motorhead album

The BEST Motorhead Album by far has to be 'Another Perfect Day.' Thats my opinion anyway. Brian Robertson, formerly with Thin Lizzy, is such a Masterfull Gutiarist. APD is the most 'Musical' Album Motorhead has done. In terms of Chord structure anyway. I read here in OS once that someone's favorite Album was 1916. Yeah its a good Album, but is Lemmy 'Multi-Tracking' his Vocals now? I think 1916 was the first Album that was done on. Am I wrong about that? Lemmy's voice sounds bad when its done that way. BASTARDS was the last Motorhead Album I bought, because I didnt like what was going on with his Vocals. I heard Snake Bite Love on the Radio the other Day, and it sounds the same as all the rest of they're latest Albums. Dont get me wrong folks, I still LOVE Motorhead, but maybe not as much as I used to. They're earlier Albums were the best I think. I mostly listen to Hawkwind and Monster Magnet anyway. There's my two cents anyway.

Keep Rockin! -V

Subject: motorhead t-shirts


Well, I had much the same problem as the person looking for T-shirts for the longest time. I stumbled upon one in a Hot Topic store in the Mall of America in Minnesota. It's just a pic in white of Snaggletooth and the Motorhead logo atop it. No big deal, but a shirt is a shirt, and it is my first. Ace, I don't know if I agree with you about the Misfits, I think the
new stuff is at best equal to the old stuff. As you said, though, this is a Motorhead list. I watched a nice Real Video cast from http://www.liveconcerts.com of Lemmy and the boys the other day. If by some fluke you haven't seen this, check the archives at the site and have fun.

Ace, I've been a Motorfan since 1982 when I first listened to the 'No Sleep 'til Hammersmith' album borrowed from a HS friend that went to England that summer. Ever since I've collected all I could, considering that I live in Mexico (only time I have heard of the Lemmys visiting here is in their 'On Parole' song!), from On Parole to Overnight Sensation (still need the Snakebite disc).

Keep up the good work, and don't forget that the only permanent thing is the change...

Just to let you know that a video recording of Motorhead's set at the OzzFest can be viewed at:


You'll need RealPlayer versions 4 or above to view this. This is the complete half-hour set. I haven't seen the whole lot yet but it looks great what I've seen so far.

If anyone knows if a recording of Ozzy's set exists out there, especially with those video clips where he uses CGI to put himself in scenes from Titanic, Full Monty, etc, I'd be most grateful to be able to access those. Unfortunately I missed the one OzzFest date in the U.K.

Subject: overnight sensation

hey Ace and all those out there.
been awhile for me since i've been off-line during my moving.

I caught Lemmy and the boys at the Ozzfest date in Somerset, WI when it mutated with the Warped Tour. A very cool day. It ended up setting a new recored for the largest on-day festival in the world, nearly 50 bands from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. The middle part of the day was best. It went from Rancid at 5:00, the DefTones at 5:30, the Rev. Horton Heat at 6:00, the Rev's autograph signing at his T-shirt tent and then Motorhead over the hill at the OZZFEST stage @ 7:00. Ozzy and Tool were pretty cool too.
Motorhead played a killer set of classics with a couple of newer songs, but no new songs. They opened with "Iron Fist" closed with "Ace" and encored with "Overkill". In between they did "Stay Clean", "No Class" (dedicated to Campbell), "Sacrifice", "Over Your Soulder" and that's it. Nothing off Snake Bite Love, which was kind of cool because it left room for more familiar stuff, but kind of sad because it's a cool record- Oh well. Short (way too) and sweet (not really). Lemmy was having a blast snearing at the crowd and making jokes about what pussies we were for not being more rowdy enough in the 90+ degrees of Wisconsin summer heat. Motorhead was definitely the crossover act between the two festivals. At the Rev. Horton Heat's signing the drummer wasn't there because he boogied over to the Ozzfest to catch Motorhead. Rancid dedicated their song "Old Freind" to Lemmy who has been an "inspiration to us," said Lars Fredricksen, vox and guitar. Whoever, most bands Warped bands were slagging the Ozzfest. A song later Fredricksen asked people to "have fun and be good to each other... and if you want to fight, go over there," pointing to the Ozzfest. And NOFX brutally teased Dave Mustaine as "that guy who does all the heroine." In the mean time Sevendust and Megadeth were both praising the promoters and bands for lining up such a good combo. I did get a Motorhead T at the show. But, I paid through the nose for it. Each Warped Tour band had their own booth where most signed autographs after their sets, with all their merchandise, cheap! Numerous $15 T's, $10 hats, $1 stickers. At the Ozzfest each band had a limited number of T's (Motorhead had two, one short sleeved white on black classic snaggletooth, $28, and a long sleeved Snake Bite Love in color, $35 or $40) and no other stuff at a shared booth. I bought two T's at the Warped tour for the same price as my single "Motorhead England" T. So, over all a great show. The Ozzfest had a better attitude toward the bands, but the Warped tour had a better attitude toward the fan's pocket books. I hope both learned a little bit from one another.

Anarchy, love and flowers

P.S. Who thinks it would be a great idea for Motorhead tour dates to be on this mailing. I know Ace would put them up if he had them, but maybe someone in the organization can get them to him better so we can have a weekly update. I'm afraid they're going to come the the Cities and I'm going to miss it because I didn't hear about it. What can you do for us Ace?

Hey Ace,

My computer has been in purgatory (re: getting fixed) for the last 3 months. I get it back...and 3 days later...it dies again! I swear...I think I picked the wrong profession. Maybe it's a sign that I should become a fry cook? Would you like fries with your Big Mac?

Anyhow...I'm at a friend's, and he let me check my e-mail. I just read O.S. #37...and there was something about a First Anniversary CD, and only getting 6 addresses. What's that about? Anyway, I'll be at my friend's for a month...so I'll be able to check my e-mail semi-regularly.

Keep up the good work on the newsletter. And when IS Motorhead gonna do a headlining tour? I can't believe Ozzy skipped Southern California this time for the Ozzfest (Okay...it was like 95 degrees in Irvine for Ozzfest 97...but he could've had the dates for So. Cal. for Sept. or October, when it's cooler)! Oh well. MOTORHEAD FOREVER.

Subject: os: urgent - u.k. fans act now!

I hope this note gets out on time...


We all agree that Lemmy knows how to please the fans, which is why Motorhead are still delivering the goods after more than two decades without drying out. But Lemmy's concern is not only with the music he releases but also with his live shows and which support band he tours with. He's always in favour of a good support that the concert goers will appreciate. Unfortunately, the tour promoters MCP have been having the final say in the matter, choosing support bands without Lemmy's approval and he has NOT! been happy about this. I'm not saying that they were bad bands that toured with Motorhead last couple of years in England, it's just their type of music is not the type that will appeal to most Motorhead fans.
This was demonstrated when last year he wanted to bring a great new band Skew Siskin on tour but MCP dropped them without discussing the issue with him beforehand. Lemmy's therefore determined to get them along for this year's tour but the promoters still have different ideas. However, it's not too late for us to write and vote our preference to MCP and ensure that Lemmy gives usthe line-up he's always been intending for us (address given later on).
Skew Siskin are a fantastic rock 'n' roll band who will really go well with Motorhead fans. I have heard their music and can see why Lemmy is a great fan of theirs. He's even included their name in the credits for the last few Motorhead albums. Skew Siskin have also recorded songs with Lemmy's collaboration, so maybe there can be a SkewHead or MotorSiskin team-up release in the traditions of Girlschool (HeadGirl) and Plasmatics? They toured with Motorhead in Germany (their home-land) during the last TWO years and went down extremely well, upstaging other support band(s) at the gigs - the audience there really went wild for them. Which is why Lemmy wants to bring them here to the U.K. because he knows we'll like them and they really deserve to be known. The song "Born To Raise Hell" Lemmy originally wrote for this band which is why on the German tours Motorhead's been performing it live as a duet with Nina C. Alice (Skew Siskin's lead vocalist) and Phil Campbell's commented that he prefers this version with Nina's backing vocals - and it'll be awesome to see this happen here in England! Some of you might even be aware that they are one of the bands who contributed to the awaiting "Make' Em Deaf Forever" Motorhead tribute album, singing their cover of "Boogey Man".
News is that Lemmy was FURIOUS when MCP dropped Skew Siskin from last years UK tour and replaced them with a different band, so he really wants to get them aboard this year. Unfortunately, MCP do not agree - they only want to bring English bands on for business reasons. It's all silly politics. And what's happened with the support bands we've been having? We've been having gigs over the last two years where most of the audience are just hanging out in the bar, ignoring the support and getting impatient until when the main act comes on. We don't care whether a support band's English or not - what's more important for us is that the support band is one that we will enjoy, regardless of which country they come from. They still sing in English so what's the problem?!!?
Last thing I heard from MCP is that a support band(s) is not confirmed yet for this October's UK tour. They were going to be Groop Dogdrill, Deadline, Radiator, etc, the bill has been forever changing and we might not know until the time of the tour. I think Radiator's been confirmed for the London gig but that might change. They are hoping to get two support bands per night. The thing is, Motorhead have already got a great support band sorted out while MCP haven't even got a band confirmed, yet still MCP are ignoring Motorhead's proposal. They didn't allow Motorhead to have their way last year and it certainly won't be fair to see the same thing happening this year also. Not only will this limit our enjoyment of the entire evening, this will also be a waste of time for the MCP-preferred support band who are playing in front of an audience who are not appreciating them, simply because they cater for a different music taste. Others might have different opinions on this matter, but I always thought that an appropriate support band is normally one that caters a similar music taste to what the headlining band caters for - as this will ensure that the audience will pay attention to them.
Don't just take Lemmy's word for it. Check out Skew Siskin for yourselves on various Internet sites I've listed at the end of this note, and you will see that they ARE THE RIGHT support band for Motorhead. I liked their music so much I even dedicated a vast section about them on my own Motorhead web-site.
There's not much time left to when the UK tour kicks off in October, but it's still not too late to let MCP know what we want. This address was printed in "Motorheadbangers World" fanzine a few months back after one of the fan club presidents tried to campaign for Skew Siskin to be elected for the British tour. I don't know how many people responded (I hadn't joined the fan club at the time so I wasn't aware of the campaign) but we can all still write to MCP and do our best to support the fight so Lemmy gives us the tour he wants for us. After all, Lemmy knows better than MCP what will please us Motorhead fans.

The address to write to and stress that you want to see Skew Siskin on the tour is:

16 Birmingham Road,
West Midlands,
WS1 2NA.

Let's not leave it too late for MCP to already pick a different band.

If you want to know more about Skew Siskin, relevant Internet sites with photos, interviews and sample Real-Audio tracks are:

http://heavymetal.miningco.com./blolympic.htm (click on "features" in the navigation box and then amongst the list you will find two interviews dated

15/08/98 with some sample tracks - all articles on that site are listed in date order it it'll be easy for you to scroll down and find those two interviews).
And there's:

http://www.geocities.com/ResearchTriangle/8273/SkewSiskin.html (which is the section I created on my own Motorhead web-site with on-going contact with Skew Siskin themselves, featuring more info on their collaboration with Motorhead, more sample tracks including a couple with Lemmy's collaboration, press releases, backstage, live and sound-check photos of Skew Siskin and MH together on the German tour, etc).

The Official Skew Siskin web-site page is still under construction but at the moment it's set up so you can read about their band history and discography on: http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Amphitheatre/4083/

Their section on Ace Trump's "Official Motorhead Web Site" is: http://www.imotorhead.com/trib10.htm (their tribute song has not been uploaded onto there yet but there's still an article on the band).

Thanks for reading.

Subject: OS: Super Lemmy Bros.

I think I'm on to something here. Everyone remembers the old "Super Mario" video game series,right? Well, I'm specifically talking about "Super Mario Bros. 3" for the original Nintendo system. One of Bowser's kids is named "Lemmy". I' ve known this for a while, but I just thought it was a coincidence, you know: a crazy name for a crazy character. However, recently I realized something odd, which I have never put together before. Another one of Bowser's kids is named "Wendy O." Now this CAN'T be a coincidence! Any thoughts???

Also, what is up with all these so called Motorhead albums which just throw a bunch of old songs together on one disk. I saw something called "Today" in the store and it was just a collection of album fillers from "Sacrifice" and "Overnight Sensation" (you know, "Listen to Your Heart", "In Another Time", etc.). It was fairly cheap, too, considering that this particular store tends to sell CD's upwards of 15 dollars. Since it didn't have the band's name in the trademark Motorhead font (it didn't even have an umlaut), I figure it to be some kind of bootleg, or the like. But I may be wrong (as I am so often). This isn't the only one I've seen either. I forgot the names of the others but you know where I'm going with this.
