Motorheadbangers Everywhere!!
Well, the most exciting news for me this week is that I am working with my brother, Warren, on a new design for the Motorhead website. We are bringing it, as Warren says, into 1999. For those of you that do not know, Warren is the talented young man that created all the original graphics for the Motorhead site. He is now running his own website design company (http://www.silicondreams.net/) but is helping me with the re-work purely out of his love of the music and the band. This is really a great make-over! I know that some of you have found it frustrating that several sections have NEVER been available, but all I can say is that it will happen.. all of it and more! I am not sure when the site will be completed, but it will be soon. This is my avenue to publically thank Warren for his help. Thanks buddy, your the best!

* You asked for it and you've got it. OVERNIGHT SENSATION MAILING LIST T-SHIRTS!! After months of planning and coordinating, I am happy to announce that I am taking pre-orders for the OS t-shirts. I have created a special webpage on the official site just for this purpose.
It has all the instructions for ordering. It is located at: http://www.imotorhead.com/tshirt.htm

This page is exclusive to Overnight Sensation members and this shirt is only for us. It is fully endorsed by the band!! All the details you need are on the link above. I am personally very excited about this. There are many cool things to come!!! The first orders are rolling in... thanks one and all for your support!

* When I went out on the road with Motorhead, one afternoon Phil and I sat down before a show and did a formal interview. That interview is available now in Real Audio format at: http://www.blastmagazine.com

* Also, we are on the verge of our second anniversary for OS!! I would like to repeat last year's celebration with all of you sending in your favorite Motorhread story. It can be the best show you saw, the best experience that you had listening to an album, the time you meet them, anything! I have a couple of VERY special prizes to give-a-way in conjunction with this celebration. Everyone that sends me a story will be included in the draw. Prizes include signed Motohead posters and CDs as well as the actual strings that Phil Campbell used to play the concert in Vancouver, BC a coupla weeks ago. He has signed the package as well! This is a piece of Motorhead history!! The first few have begun arriving and they look great! Deadline for submissions is June 11/99. Send your emails to acetrump@bigfoot.com and make sure that the subject reads "OS: Second Anniversary". I look forward to them!!

Ah--the monitors supply the onstage sound which the performers hear, and their levels are controlled independantly of the main PA which the audience hears. Unless the monitors were *extremely* loud they would not affect what you hear directly (though if the performers hear a bad sound balance, _that_ might affect what they play ;) > From: "Judith Sjoelander-Hovorka" nidhoegg85@hotmail.com

This sounds a familar problem to me! My girlfriend is not so tall, and often has difficulty seeing at gigs. You might try taking something to stand on, like a folding stool, (but not too close to the front, or some bastard jumping around might knock you off it). On the other hand, the last time I went to a Motorhead gig with my girlfriend, she was able to worm her way down to the front row easily (being small--I never could have done it!) and stayed there most of the gig, alarming Lemmy once by shouting for "Silver Machine" ;)

Thanks Silvia Queen of Spades for your support on the small t-shirts for girls, short ones would be nice too, so I can show off my Overkill backpiece tattoo. Thanks Samad for the addresses for Motorhead rare records. Does anyone know anything about about the scheduled tour of old punk bands in America and Canada in August? I hear alot are supposed to play Montreal (999, the Damned, UK Subs, One Way System, Vice Squad, Varukers, etc...) and wondering if Motorhead is planning to play this, as they used to play a lot with some of these bands in the U.K., back in the day. Apparently it's supposed to happen at the Molson amphitheater- we'll see, we get told a lot of shows will happen, the posters go up and then it gets canceled. If anyone knows anything about it &/or Motorhead playing-please do tell. Charlie Harper, UK Subs front man ,told me they were supposed to play this, apparently Toronto, too. Motorhead in Montreal rocked, but it was pretty empty, they should play the Spectrum next time, it's really large too, but not as big and has a wicked sound system. Their set was longer in Montreal, then in Toronto. Both times I got to meet Lemmy and Mickey Dee, very fucking cool individuals, very nice birthday present. Thankyou Dave the t-shirt guy, for the backstage pass, and Doreen in Toronto for having a after show party at your restaurant/bar. Shows were great, although I missed all the opening bands, oh well... The shitty thing is the guys in the pit trying to get down your pants every five minutes-beware of the little girls, we are stronger then you think. Glad to hear about the new shirts Ace, and Motorhead finally produced baby doll t-shirts for us chicks this tour, very happy about that. Got totally hammered at the Toronto party, and everyone started having their body parts signed, I got conned into it, passed out on my friends couch and he now has Lemmy's signature permanently tattooed on his leather couch!!- Now there is a conversation piece. Check out the Built For Speed compilation, I picked up the picture disk at Rotate This in Toronto, it's pretty good.

Subject: OS: St Valentines Day Masacre EP and other Rarities

Hey all, After Checking out the discography in the booklet to my Protect the Innocent box set, I was wondering where I could acquire Odd stuff like the St Valentines Day massacre ep, The Golden Years Live ep, the Beer Drinkers EP, the Stand by Your Man ep, the '92 Tour EP and other stuff of that nature. The problem is that here in the states I can't get a lot of stuff except on import, and that stuff is really hard to find even in stores that have a lot of imports. Is there a compilation out there with most of this stuff on there, would Ebay be a good source or is there another good place to get this stuff. BTW Cdnow.com used to have some interesting stuff, but not anymore. I'd appreciate someone letting me know something. Thanks a lot

I no sooner put the thing in and a segment called "Rapid Fax" comes on and low an behold, who do ya think their interviewing???...Lemmy...move over Elvis the king has arrived. They proceeded to play the "Ace Of Spades" video immediately following the interview. But...The news is...Canada's premiere music video channel, "Much Music" will air a show called "Loud" on June 19, an who do ya think could possibly be co-hosting???...That's right...The King himself...MTHeadbangers everywhere, if you have access to the "Much Music" network, I suggest you program the VCR, invite every MTHeadbanger you know, an enjoy a rare appearance by King Lem. I gotta go watch this interview again. Rock on "Ace" nice job with the website. Yo "Tinman", havn't received the shirt yet, let you know when it arrives.

Subject: os t-shirts

Hey All, I was just wondering about a couple of things......First of all, How often will the Faq be updated, because the one I got on the 29th or so of May was updated on the 25th of April and it didn't seem to be different at all from the one I got in February or March. Second, I was just curious, what kind of amplifier does Lemmy use, and what does he use for distortion, it said on the Backstage Website, No Sleep til My Ears Bleed that they don't use distortion, that they're just plain loud, but I don't buy that. and Third How did Lemmy come to use a Rickenbacker bass. As an aspiring bassist I look up to Lemmy for so many reasons, namely the way he plays the power chords on the bass underneath the guitar solos and stuff, and I saw his signature series bass and I began to drool. Ahh I figured out a forth Question, Why are the frames on Oliver Cornfield's fan club site so big. I love the site, but I hate the frames on the site, the one on the left is so big, especially compared with other sites. Is that just the way the Virgin Freespace is? Oh well, hope to get some Answers soon
**Editor: I assume in your first question you are refering to the note I send to all new subscribers. It is updated whenever I decide to update it. It was recently updated because I happened to notice that my old (now non-functioning) e-mail address was listed in one spot. So, I fixed it. That is all....

Hello, my name is Paul, I am a Motorhead fan till death. The first Motorhead CD I ever heard was 1916. I was so hooked after that. I am in a metal band and we cover "Iron Fist" and"The One To Sing The Blues" I have never been able to see Motorhead live yet, but I will before I die. I have been to the NAMM show twice hoping to meet Lemmy or any of Motorhead there but none of them were there. I have the new live Motorhead cd and it is awsome, I hope it sells like crazy. Motorhead deserves tons of respect for all the great things they have done over the years. Lemmy truly is Rock and Roll and everything cool. Thank you for putting out such a cool newsletter.

Subject: OS: Motorhead kicked my ass in Poughkeepsie

Hello Ace!!
I have just had my ass kicked by the mightiest loudest band on the face of the earth!!!
On Wednesday, June 3rd at the Chance in Poughkeepsie at approximately 9:30 P.M. A full sonic assault was executed by Lemmy and Co. I had gotten to the chance earlier in the night around 8:15 P.m. and proceeded to listen to two bands which have the talent of a horse's a**. The last band I think (Dropkick Murphys) was angry at one guy in the crowd and asked him if he was a tough guy. Security was very good, they had a very good selection of motorhead shirts, but I bought two bumper stickers with the new live album release on them. No graphics though except for the motorhead logo.
What can I say other than this was by far the best concert I have ever attended. Period. Last year's ScuzzFest does not count (30 minutes? and outside?) Many people were holding their ears, but I came prepared with earplugs and sat up in the balcony. The sound quality was truly awesome--lots of bass, no treble sound, and Mikkeys's drums pierced the stacks.
Phil was brilliant on guitar, I have never seen Mikkey give his all like he did, and Lemmy was witty and funny as always. I was in for a treat when the trio hit the stage. All of the sudden multi-colored lights and rising smoke fill the air-- Lemmy says "We are motorhead, and were gonna kick your ass" And two seconds later, BOMBER! in full force. I was pumped the whole show as were many other motorhead fans. Next they launched straight into No Class. I banged my head and pumped my fist and yelled my head off.
The set list (not in any particular order) --a 20 song set--which i find very generous, is as follows

No Class
The Chase is Better than the Catch--an excellent rendition!!!
Over Your Shoulder
Born To Raise Hell (Darn Good) and mikkey's drumming superb.
Overkill (last song, and well worth the wait, with feedback at end)
Ace of Spades
Going to Brazil
Killed By Death (another excellent rendition!!)
Im So Bad (Baby I don't care)
Sacrifice (very strong and loud--best live I've heard yet)
Orgasmatron (Stage goes dark and lights glow green--excellent!)
Nothing Up MY Sleeve
Dead Men Tell No tales (Introduced As Dead Men smell toe nails)
Love for sale (really kicked some major A**)
Take the Blame (by far the fastest piece of the show)
Broken (A treat to hear since it is often not played)
Civil War (They hit the nail on the head on this one)
Iron Fist (Great)

All songs were executed with raw power and I must say I am still psyched 24 hours after the show.
One or two guys tried to get on stage and they got rid of them quickly. Lemmy commented (This is MY stage, not yours.) I must agree. Some lemmy comments: "Does anyone here don't know what rock and roll is? Raise your hand. This guy here doesn't know we'll show him!" This is a song about prostitutes its called "Love for Sale" This song is about politicians "Take the blame" This one is a long one from 1983-- its called "Shine"--don't know what Lemmy meant by that. This next song is from the Middle Ages--"Broken".All in all, everything was louder than everthing else. This one's a keeper.

Hi Ace!!!
Forgot to add to my previous post about the Chance show in Pughkeepsie, NY. After the show ended, I was walking out in the alley and into the parking lot. I saw the Motorhead tour bus, and as I was walking close by I saw Phil Campbell in person. I got within about ten feet of him--I waved but he didnt see me. He was probably tired more than ever. By the way, all of you motorheadbangers out there who do not know about e-bay please visit the online auction website for some motorhead goodies! http://www.ebay.com I got two promo posters for the new live CD (11x17) and an out of print? video 1991 Live...Everything louder than everything else--filmed in Munich. So there are some great bargains, though sometimes you have to bid to get what you want.Ace--what can I say, the T- Shirts are excellent looking! Especially the Snaggletooth coming out of the computer.

Subject: OS: Is Motorhead too loud?

I recently saw Motorhead live for the first time. This was the Washington D.C. show. It's been a full 2 days since the show and my ears are still ringing. I have been to a lot of shows but never had my ears ring as bad as from Motorhead. I actually think Motorhead plays too loud, I don't see how the band can't be deaf by now, it didn't appear like they wear any ear protection at all. Also Phil's solos could barely be heard, most of the time you couldn't really hear them at all. The vocals could be hardly heard as well. If lemmy's bass would have been not as loud the vocals and solos would have come through so much clearer. Does motorhead always sound like this live? I think alot of this has to do with them wanting to use so many high watt amps and speaker cabinets on stage even in a medium sized club. From what i understand if a band turns their amps down and lets most of the sound come from the PA then the overall result will be much clearer music. But then again they when they say that they are there to kick everyone's ass, they definitely do that in terms of sheer volume and aggression.

Subject: os-motorhead trip: milwaukee & edgefest

someone posted last time ... no sleep til milwaukee. well, for me it was no sleep since milwaukee. my cousin and i tripped down to the rave in milwaukee to catch motorhead saturday night, then drove all night and caugt them on sunday at edgefest in somerset, wisconsin (the minneapolis market). both shows were awesome! milwaukee was about 2 hours, 15 minutes! that's why i went all the way there, to see them play a full headline set. but, then at edgefest they had the last slot of the evening (after the offspring) and still got to play about an hour and a half (30 minutes longer than they were scheduled). i was incredibly surprised and pleased. all the technical difficulies in milwaukee were funny, but scary. i was sure they were going to say fuck it and be done, but they carried on and rocked the joint. i met dave (i'm not sure what he does exactly) working the t-shirt booth a the rave and again at edgefest. i was working another booth and we got to talking and he gave me a guest pass for edgefest (hey dave, if you read this you still owe me $15 and a t-shirt). the edgefest show was way better than i expected and i got their autographs afterward as well. it was so cool hearing songs like "the chase..." "shine" and "dead men..." (they only played "chase" at edgefest, but the other two at the rave). plus, newer stuff like "broken" (at both gigs). i was totally expecting to be diappointed with the edgefest gig, but it will probably go down as the best motorhead show for me ever. the backstage area is set up so that people can hang at the side of the stage and watch the show. it so happened i was on lemmy's side the entire set. everyone i met with the band was very cool and i'm looking forward to seeing them next time they're in town. let's hope it's not too long. AC

p.s.-- i saw nashville pussy at first avenue (mpls) wednesday night and their drummer jeremy was wearing a motoread t-shirt. if you dig motorhead, check this band out. they rock and reyter and corey are fucking hot (and really nice)!

The Rave, Milwaukee
May 29, 1999
It's taken me almost a week to recover from this gig so I hope I don't forget anything! OK, my wife and I drove up to Milwaukee from Chicago early afternoon. We had made plans with the boys in Chicago the week prior to "make a day of it!" We got to The Rave before they did so we killed some time at an excellent English pub downtown. The bus pulled up at 7:00 pm and we spotted each other. After the crew set up everything it was time to party backstage! My wife, Ellen, had baked about a hundred cookies and brownies for the band. Don't laugh, they quickly stashed them on the bus! Hell, I only got one! She also gave the band and crew various raunchy buttons they also quickly scarfed up! I brought a cooler full of various booze I thought we'd enjoy. We did. Every year I give Phil Campbell a t-shirt. This time I gave him a Bettie Page "It's Spanky Time!" shirt. We listened to Lemmy's hilarious tales (ask him about one-armed Tommy Lee sometime!) and talked old times til showtime. They let Ellen stand on the side of the stage to avoid a massive mosh pit! I was in the photo pit the first three songs, then joined Ellen onstage. The band was on fire! It was basically the same set as Chicago, but with two more songs- "Love For Sale" and "Broken"! 21 songs! That's gotta be a record for an Amercian gig! During "Nothin' Up My Sleeve", a fuse blew and all that was left was Mikkey Dee drumming in the dark! The venue tried to blame Lemmy's amp but his bass tech, Tim, would have none of it! "Is that the best you can do?" he asked! Power was restored so they blasted out another dozen killer songs! The place was going nuts! After the show, we partied again backstage, finally leaving at 5:00 am for our 90 mile ride home. I don't know how we made it but I do know I missed two days work just recovering from all the Motor-partying! Thanks guys!

Next round is on us!
