Subject: os: happy birthday lemmy!

Greetings Fellow Motorheadbangers!!

Well, I am well onto the road to recovery! I really appreciate all of the kind emails I received from so many of you wishing me well.... you will never know how much it meant to me.

I faxed Lemmy the birthday wishes so many of you sent.... as soon as I hear from him, I will let you know his reaction.

Orders have all been filled now from the Motorheadshop and the items are on the way! Thanks for all of your patience in this matter...

The tribute is starting to shape up nicely... there are a ton of bands participating and the materials have all started to arrive here. I guess my Dec 31 release date was a bit optimistic. But, I hope to have the majority of it released for the end of January 2000.

The new album will be out in the first half of 2000 and from all reports it is going to be amazing! As soon as I have anything to report, I will let you know.

I will be spending New Years Eve catching Kiss at BC Place Stadium in Vancouver, BC. Should be a cool show. If any of you are there, I will be sitting in Row 4... seat 4. Come and say hello.... :-)

I hope you all had a happy and safe holiday season. Remember to take care on New Years Eve... the last thing we want is to have one of our ranks get hurt or killed because they didn't act responsibly on the biggest party night of the year. Happy New Year to all of you! You have made this one of the best gigs in the world!!

I agree with our Spanish friend Francisco Lorenzo Diaz that Motorhead makes for great late-night listening, but I REALLY like to play Motorhead right when I get up in the morning or afternoon, especially the live stuff.

Subject: os: issue #85

A friend of has a kid's book from the eighties. It's a history or something of heavy metal. They mention "the goonish ranting of Motorhead".

> - no drug ( I was actually very annoid by all these mails posted a few mounth ago on OS about which drug to take while >listening to Motorhead; who gives a fuck about that ! Drugs are shit, drugs kill; there are much better ways to spend money >than on drugs; buying Motorhead CDs for exemple; The OS mailing list should not urge kids to take drugs )

I consider it my right as a human being to put whatever I want in myself. It's my body, I'll do whatever the fuck I want with it. Of course, I'm a responsible person and don't like to damage my body, but I still regard as my choice. Hell, it IS my choice. What makes the US government so godly and wise as to tell me what I can and can't do to myself if it harms nobody else? Fuck that shit. My God, Lemmy himself is on a strict alcohol and speed regimen! If he stops taking speed his body chemistry will break and he'll die. You don't want that, do you? Also, there's a really gigantic difference between which drugs do what, and how harmful they are. Marijuana, for instance, is mostly harmless. Lung damage, yes, but it's pretty minimal as most pot-smokers don't smoke 20 joints a day, or even more than 2. Marijuana is the drug of choice for almost every culture in America (I hesitate to say the world, 'cause I've never been there). Psychedelics are physically completely safe. They can take a terrible toll on your brain, though, and that's why you should know what you're doing, and don't take 'em all that often. Amphetamines are dangerous and bad for you. They'll kill you, so watch out. A little every now and then won't do anything, though, but I still don't intend to find out. Cocaine and crack are addictive and super-bad for you. Crack, though, is highly humorous. "Heroin'll kill ya", as Lemmy sez. All opiates are Bad. Every single one is addictive and death-inducing. Stay away at all costs.
Now, I refer (reefer?) you back to my first paragraph: I am a human being, and have the brain to make my own decisions. Everyone does, whether they choose to use it or not. I can distinguish between good drugs and bad drugs. Pot and psychedelics are most certainly good drugs. The others are all bad (includig alcohol. It's addictive and deadly, and makes you act like a total ass). I don't tell you how to live your life, you don't tell me how to live mine. Part of living life is talking about anything and everything. Drugs make a worthwhile discussion topic. If you don't like it, you don't have to read it. Lemmy wouldn't have it any other way.

> Eat The Rick soundtrack CD,

I had that for a few weeks, but sold it 'cause it was Orgasmatron with suck songs thrown in between Motorhead tracks.

> a still sealed copy of the Rock & Roll album on vinyl.

What's the point? You can never listen to it. You collector types mystify me.

> the only thing that matter to me to like a motorhead album is that Lemmy is there, and he is been always been there...

Weird. The thing that matters to me is whether it's good or not. Lemmy isn't infallible, though he is pretty close.

> crudely translated from latin is "look out buyer"

commonly translated "Let the buyer beware."

> I wonder who ideated such sentence, I think is rather original, isn't it?

No, it isn't. It's been around for several thousand years.

> Motorhead were 'On Ice' for a while...

On ice? Hell, they were pretty much homeless till Overkill was such a success.

> What's with the Grammy nominee shit, and having to be a member, leaves a lot of real fans out of the picture don't you >think?

That's what the Grammies are all about.

> If he had a secret sideproject at that time, this is how I imagine he would have placed "the message" out to us future X-files
> detectives."
> ... but it might help someone out there to set me up with the correct information about this "conspiracy theory".

Conspiracy theories, including yours, are bullshit. Lemmy's got no comlex, secret motive behind his work. Occam's Razor and all that.

>Shame they don`t play their title song "Motorhead" these days.These days? They haven't played it for over fifteen years, or >so claims Lemmy (and who would know better?).
> Don't believe the bullshit you read on [The Impotent Sea Snakes], check them out and decide for yourself.

I'm the bullshit you read. Believe me: their music sucks an armpit, and their stageshow is nothing but shock tactics and boobs (though boobs are nice).

> In fact Id reckon they coudlve kicked Jabba the Huts big ass no problem.

Hell, I could kick that tubby worm's ass. It'd be better to see Motorhead kick the Emperor's ass, that frail bitch. He'd try to use that electric-finger deal on Lemmy, and nothing would happen. Then Lemmy would grab his head and twist it around 5 times, then stretch the neck out real long and shove the head up under his robes and up the ass. Lemmy kicks ass. Yuss.

> I also say Cheers to Lemmy, even with the throat problem he had, he managed a full set, It did affect the in betweens but >many bands would have cancelled, we should be grateful.

I saw Black Sabbath somewhere or other, and Ozzy had a cold. he announced that he didn't know if he'd be able to do the whole show, and he fucked up NIB. Then he appologized, got better, and kicked ass. Lousy other metal-God.

> Motorhead the bands name is a cover of a Hawkwind song

Yeah, but Lemmy wrote it.

> not forgetting Lemmy's amazing cover of Blue Suede Shoes

The Black Sabbath cover of that is amazingly horrible. You can't listen to it without clawing your face and running away screaming. Also, you forgot to list one of my personal favorites, Vibrator. Ew...

> **Ace: Another Futurama fan! :-)

Oh, don't get me started... (that's actually a Futurama quote)

> I don't see why ANY metalheads should give half a soggy condom about the grammys or about any awards. First off, it >aint what metal\rock 'n' roll is about.

Heehee. Nine Inch Nails won for best metal album a few years ago, and they're not metal! Stupid music industry low-lives.

> Lem did briefly mention that Motorhead would be ploughing the country
> next year

That just gave me the weirdest mental image.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, I too remember the magic moment of finding new Motorvinyl. I don't collect anymore because my little kids might draw all over the covers etc etc.

My favourite Motor possessions are the White Label Test pressing of Orgasmatron which I won in a MHB's competition (you had to answer about q's in a test of your Motorhead knowledge, the q's were set by 'Mad' Alan Burridge). My three copies of the White Line Fever single (on Stiff, Skydog and the other one) and my pic disc.

There you go..........

I met Peter Sempel at a Motorhead gig in The Netherlands where he was filming, and he gave me a promotional photo of Lemmy. I haven't checked out http://www.sempel.com yet (maybe it's put up there), but if you want to I can mail a scan to you.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's Disgust. I have their "Brutality of war" on tape, it's really a killer!

From: andy barnes - a.barnes@castingsdev.com
Subject: os: responses to os #85, from schnee.

Just read through OS #85, and think that I can clear up a few questions, and probably add to confusion on others.

Firstly, Alain Poncelet wonders about Lemmy vocal on the ELTEE version of Ace of Spades. I reckon the old dog is barking " I don't wanna live forever - but apparently I am!" There are quite a few other examples of altered live lyrics, but my favourite is from "Built for Speed" where in the line "I was born with the hammer down", the word hammer was often substituted by "trousers". Anyone got any more?

Secondly Alain, at the start of "No Sleep at All", Lemmy greets the crowd with the same greeting as the rest of that years live sets. "Are you ready for some rock 'n' roll?".

Dunno what version of "Dirty Love" album Max Headroom has got his paws on, but the version I have, (UK-LP), appears to be a series of out takes from rehearsals/ recordings for the "Ace of Spades" album. I couldn't be arsed to dig the album out last night, but working from memory, track listing on the cover includes "Hump on your/my back", "Godzilla Akimbo", "Shoot you in the Back" & "Bastard", though they don't all actually appear on the record. There is also "Ace of Spades (Rare Version)" which has different guitar riffs. Also as far as I remember, there is a small amount of Lemmy talking between takes. Is this the same record you have Max?, if so then not "b-sides".

Chad Hallman, thinks he's heard of Motorhead doing "Paranoid" on some record or other. This is news to me, although if anyone does know more I'd love to hear it. I can recommend Megadeth's version of the song, which can be found on the album "Nativity in Black", a tribute to Sabbath, with other contributions including Bruce Dickinson - "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" and Therapy? (featuring Ozzy on vocals) - "Iron Man".

Finally, Jamie Moss review of recent gig, including Lemmy putting down a mindless beer-can lobber with the line "Cut that out you little fuck...." reminded me of two instances of similar wise words from himself. First off, Xmas 1989 tour I think it was, at the International 2 in Manchester. Some fuck-wit lobs a heavy glass ashtray, (that's what it looked like) at the stage, it catches Wurzel just above the eye. After threatening to leave the stage, Lemmy invites anyone who saw which twat chucked it to "take him outside and break his fucking arms". Finally, I think it was the Rock 'n' Roll tour, at some pokey club in Birmingham, (can't remember what it was called, but it was after the Odeon stopped doing gigs, and it wasn't the Hummingbird). Sword were on support, and there were loads of people getting up on stage and diving, including a mate of mine who clumsily (and hilariously) knocked a mic over into their guitarist mouth. A few unsuspecting fools carried on the same caper when Motorhead came on, to Lemmy's increasing annoyance. Various warnings were given, including the classics. "Don't fuck about with this stage, 'cos while I'm on it, this stage is mine!" "Don't throw shit. We don't need any more beer, we've got two crates backstage". "Don't come up here, I'll kick you in the fucking eye". "I don't regard it as a sign of masculinity to come up here anyway. Boy George has been up here, he likes it up the arse, it doesn't matter." Anyway, there's always one who refuses to be warned, so when the next clown got half on the stage, right by Lemmy's feet, he got a really hard poke from the pointy white cowboy boots, right in his eye as promised.

Right, I'm off.

Hope you all have/ had a Merry Bastard Xmas.
See you next time the boys play Wolverhampton.

Subject: os: motorhead in london

Just like to say that the recent Motorhead gig at the Astoria(London) was NOT very loud .. my ears were not even ringing the next day !!!!! But it was still bloody good, apart from the early start. Does anyone know why they started so early ??

Thought I would also say that Motorhead got a mention by the great Billy Connelly on TV a few days ago. Also, the Guardian (a UK national newspaper) gave Motorhead 4 out of 5 for a great concert at the Astoria !! Things are looking up, especially as (in the same review) the London Philharmonic Orchestra only got 3 out if 5 ;-)

I've just rejoined this mailing list after an 18 month absence, glad to be back.

Forgive me if the following has been brought up before during that time:
I have the compilation titled 'the best of motorhead' released in '92 with 14 tracks taken off Orgasmatron, RnR, No Sleep at All ...
Who delivers the sermon at the end of Stone Deaf in the USA? You know the one about hankies & cricket bats etc.

Is it who I think it is, one of the Monty Python gang?

Subject: os: new cd


Saw Lemmy and the boyz at the born-again "L'Amour" in Brooklyn, NY and was lucky enough to go on the MH tour bus afterwards with Mikkey. Mikkey is good friends with a friend of mine so there we were. He played us a bunch of tracks from the new CD (some just instrumental) but a couple with vocals - "We Are Motorhead" and, hold on to your seats, a ballad! (much in the same vein as "Love Me Forever"). Sounds like it's going to be another Motorhead classic.

Anyway, hope everyone has a very Lemmy Christmas and a Philthy New Year.

Hello folks, I just downloaded one pretty weird mp3 from the net. The thing about it is From: "R. Sjoberg" rikhard_sjoberg@hotmail.com
Subject: os: motvrhead & metallica?

that it appears to be Metallica and Lemmy/Motorhead playing Enter Sandman. The Lem is on the vocals, and the guitarwork pretty much sounds like Hammett and Hetfield. The sound quality is good, I don't think it's a live take. (Could be from Lemmy's 50th birthday party, though).
I was wondering if anybody has heard about stuff like this before. Maybe it's from the new Motorhead album? (Just kiddin' !!!) Mail me if you know anything.

**Ace: Comes from the ECW Wresting album...
