Hello Friends!!

Good News! Almost all of the challenges surrounding the official Motorhead website are at an end. I should have the site up and running by this time next week.

Thanks for all of the support and help that all of you have given. In particular I want to thank a few people. First, Lemmy, Phil and Mikkey. Without you guys, what would be the point? Todd Singerman and Alex Guerero for their support and faith. Eric, Yvonne, Paul and Evil Clam... you are all the best! And last, but certainly not least, all of you that belong to the Overnight Sensation list. Thanks for your patience. I guess it is true... the best people do flock together!

I believe the vinyl you are referring to is "What's Words Worth". The show cwas performed under the name "Iron Fist & The Hordes From Hell" at the Roundhouse on 2/18/78. It is available on CD, under the name:

Motorhead / Iron Fist & The Hordes From Hell Cleopatra Records
8726 S. Sepulveda Blvd. Ste. D-82 Los Angeles, CA 90045 USA

The CD was mastered from the original tapes in '94 and sounds excellent. It also comes with great liner notes surrounding that gig. Hope this helps.

The record you are looking for is called 'What's Words Worth ?' and was recorded in 1978. Motorhead appeared as Iron Fist & The Hordes From Hell. It has a brilliant recording of I'm your witch doctor. It came out under the Big Beat label and I haven't seen it on CD yet. I thoroughly recommend this as an essential record to have in any Motorhead fans collection. This is about as raw as you will ever hear the band on a live recording.

Hi there all you fellow MHB! I have been a fan or Motorhead for half a year so I don't know so much about them. I was wondering about Motorhead's cover of Metallica's "Enter Sandman". Where can I find it? I agree with the-odd-couple@juno.com that Metallica today is chickenshit compared to what they were in the 80's I had the opportunity to see Motorhead live in Malmoe, Sweden at a club called KB 28th Oct. Opening act was a Swedish band called Hardcore Superstar. They were fairly OK and sounded a lot like the Swedish glampunkband Backyard Babies. After they had finished their set, me and my friend who also is new to Motorhead looked at the merchandise and my friend bought a Motorhead England t-shirt. After a half hour of wait, Motorhead came up on stage and completely ROCKED the place for the next 90 minutes. Since I am new to Motorhead, I don't really know which songs the played, cause I have never heard them before, but I recognized Stone Dead Forever, Killed By Death, Dead Men Tell No Tales, Ace Of Spades and Overkill. The sound was loud and and the guys were in good shape and looked as they really liked to play. Amazing if you compare them with KISS. The members of M'head and KISS are about the same age, but M'head kicks more ass in one show than the reunited KISS does on a whole tour. I know, cause I've seen both.

Regardig a book about Lemmy, I talked to him about a year ago and at the time, a woman from Metal Edge magazine was writing his autobiography. What a tale this would be! Since then, I've heard nothing on the matter. I really hope it comes to pass, as I gave Lemmy two dozen photos I've taken over the years dating back to '83 for him to use in it!

Subject: os: motorhead's cover songs

There's been some comments on the new Motorhead cover of the Metallica song "Enter Sandman". I've not heard it yet, but I'll get my copy soon.

However, I really think that Motorhead's best covers are those of really old songs, like "Louie Louie" or "I'm Your Witch Doctor", and even "Hoochie Coochie Man" which I can only find live.

One cover I didn't really like was "Cat Scratch Fever". It wasn't that bad, I guess, but the lyrics Lemmy sings are censored. In the original, Ted Nugent sings a line "I can make a pussy purr with a stroke of my hand" and in the Motorhead version it's gone. Was the great Sony label scared to have the word "pussy" included?

I really don't think that a band like Motorhead should be cleaning up some other bands' songs and making them less objectionable.

I'm hoping the Metallica cover will be okay, but I don't understand why Motorhead should be covering them. I like the older songs better when Lemmy sings them, the stuff from the 60's that I never heard the first time around.

Hi Ace !

Let me ask you one question. Do you know something more (exept those info on CD cover) about song "I am the sword" from "Bastards". This one is my fav and I'm wondering how it came out.

Best regards,
Marek Klimiuk

P.S. Keep rockin' man. Your new website is cool.

Subject: an attempt to get motorhead in australia

I've been wondering if there are any fellow Australians on the OS list. If so I was thinking we could get some sort of begging list together to persuade Motorhead to come over sometime soon. I'm getting sick of hearing about these awesome gigs in other countries, and people complaining about the lack of decent support bands. Maybe their just spoilt. Motorhead havent been here since 1988 and I know its along way to come and getting gear here is expensive but one tour every ten years couldnt possibly hurt.Thanks and hope to hear some feedback.

**Editor: Add the Northwest to that whinning list. :-)

Subject: cradle of filth

Dear All

I hope as many of you (based in the UK) saw the Living with The Enemy Show last week. ( For those abroad, you put two people with opposing views living together for a week, ) This week we had Cradle of Filth and some middle aged woman from north England. She was going mad about all the Satanic Imagery and the Jesus is a C**T T shirt.

After being terrified for a day or two, she sat down and spoke with some of them and reached the Earth Shattering conclusion that they were OK really and that it was all done for effect.

I sent it in for several reasons. 1 ./ Mass media still insist on portraying metal as subversive, COF were portrayed as this really hard bunch, but come on lets be honest, they are a cross : Venom (Great Band), a bit of WASP, a bit of Sabbath . a bit of KISS, nothing really too amazing 2./ Do you think Lemmy would be on for a week with a teetotaller ?

Just a small point with regard to the bloke from Holland talking about support acts, most notably Radiator. When I was at the Brixton gig, the band with the attitude was the blokes with cowboy gear, who I am led to believe are called Groop Dogrill. Lets not go booting fuck out of Radiator verbally or physically until we are sure whats the story.

RE: Lemmy's book. I read an answer to a question on the OS website where he says that he has written one but is trying to find a publisher who will take him seriously.

Roll on the next tour

Subject: os: bits & pieces

Dearest Motorfans,

Thought I'd answer a few queries that have arisen on the list. So, here goes:

Someone asked about an early vinyl LP of Motorhead playing a gig at the Roundhouse. I think they are referring to the "What's Words Worth" LP recorded at the Roundhouse in 1978. After years of decay this gem of a live album was rereleased on CD under the name "Iron Fist and the Hordes from Hell", which is the title under which Motorhead appeared that night. I think it's on Cleopatra records but I'm not sure.

Also there has been mention of a live album in the wings. This has been recorded at a gig in Hamburg and mixed by Jim Voxx from Skew Siskin. It's due for release in early '99 and will be a double CD. Here's hoping that they'll use this to include the intros and associated banter that we all know and love, unlike previous live releases. I forget what it's going to be called, but I'm sure it's posted at Sarmad's site listed below. Finally I'd like to respond to the guy complaining about the lack of support on some tour or other. I should like to point out that it was NOT Radiator who were responsible for the mess-up, but Groop Dogdrill. Words can barely express my opinion of these mindless shitbags, but I think it's unfair to blame Lemmy for the ensuing lack of support. After all you didn't see them!

At this point I'd like to mention a few things about the Brixton gig. I think Sarmad has covered most of the points, but I'll post a more detailed transcript of our conversation with Nigel Moore on the site when I have time. First, the support bands: Psycho Squad, Phil's son's band, performed well despite abuse from the crowd, and though I don't personally like their sound much, I reckon they have good potential (God, that sounds SO patronising!). Radiator I missed most of, but I understand that they were a bit more dancy, but reasonably good in spite of that. Groop Dogdrill, however, would have spoiled my evening if it weren't for the hilarious abuse the crowd were giving them. They were not only whingeing almost constantly, but they were ridiculously bad as well!! I've rarely seen a band of lower quality! Anyway at the aftershow bash, one of them got completely trolleyed and started saying things like "Motorhead? Motorshite more like." Jesus, what a wit! Anyway Sarmad and I spotted him again later standing by a wall with everyone ignoring him. I understand he remained there a good while and Lemmy made a particular effort not to talk to him. Ha!

Sarmad has covered the show, I think. Best show I've ever seen in terms of sound quality and song selection. Particularly pleased to see Metropolis is back- it's definitely my fave live song. As per usual Lemmy's spontaneous witticisms peppered the show. My ears were more fucked than they've ever been at any gig, ever. 3 days of continuous ringing. Excellent!

Anyway, got to dash, I have a previous engagement. I'd like to say many thanks to Nigel Moore at this point for giving up so much of his time before the show to talk to us. We appreciate it.

Bye for now!

Hiya Ace!
I too am anxiously awaiting to hear that Motorhead will be playing my neck of the woods soon (San Francisco)! But, I do have tickets to the upcoming Sabbath Reunion show in San Jose. What are they thinking, not having Motorhead open up!?!? Wouldn't that be so much better than Pantera! (no offense intended). I will keep checking the official page hoping to see some dates! Also, I have found a great source for Motorhead albums, shirts, and other memoribilia at:
I've bid on some awesome stuff there!

OS: Dear fellow Motorfriends,

I picked up the ECW Extreme Music CD yesterday. Quite a number of good tunes here (mainly covers). Unfortunately, Motorhead's cover of Metallica's "Enter Sandman" is not one of them. I'm not sure if our boys simply weren't trying, or (gasp!) they can't play up to the level of the Gods named Metallica. This version can't hold a candle to the original, end of story. Interesting note: does anyone know who the guys are singing the "Now I Lay Thee Down to Sleep" interlude in the middle of the song? I'll bet it's Mickey and Phil. Best cut on the album: Anthrax's version of "Phantom Lord". Now THAT'S how to do a Metallica cover! I'm looking forward to hearing other opinions on this subject from you guys.

Recently some of you have been mentioning Motorhead compilations that you've seen around. Does anyone else have the one called "Meltdown"? The track list is as follows:

turn you round again
under the knife 1
under the knife 2
stand by your man
lemmy goes to the pub
tales of glory (live)
heart of stone (live)
hoochie coochie man (live)
(don't need) religion (live)
go to hell (live)
one track mind (live)
shoot you in the back (live)

This has become one of my favorite Motorhead CD's. Faves being Under the Knife 2 ("mangle it Wurzel") and Lemmy Goes to the Pub (Heart of Stone with different lyrics making fun of Wurzel).

Subject: os: rare "b4" footage

Just a quick note to apologise to 'Net surfers awaiting the Brixton Backstage 1998 article on my web-site with photos. I've had dozens of emails enquiring about this. Things have been very busy at work with a demanding software project I'm doing for an important customer, which entails frequent flights to Germany to the customer's site - so this has reduced my free time to do other things. Such is life! So please be patient. The article is almost is almost finished and WILL be up there before too long.

In the meantime, I have uploaded something I know you will all appreciate. It's some rare Real-Player video footage of the song "B4" that Skew Siskin produced with Motorhead's collaboration in 1995 - a duet with Lemmy and Nina C. Alice. Jim Voxx from the band was kind to send me a video documentary of Skew Siskin and allow me to use snippets on my web-site.

The story behind that song is that when Lemmy came to visit Skew Siskin in the studio, they were recording for the "Electric Chair Music/Voices From The War" double CD. They had almost finished the song "B4" when Lemmy asked if he could add some of his own lyrics to it. What evolved is a duet that demonstrates the strong relationship between the two bands.
