Amazing Artwork – MOTÖRHEAD 35 Years Ago

5 September 2022

Band: MOTÖRHEAD
Album: ROCK ‘N’ ROLL – the band’s 8th
Released: 5 September 1987 – 35 years ago

Joe Petagno (designer of the artwork) “I had this great idea and nobody wanted to listen to me. The original Rock ‘N’ Roll sleeve was supposed to be going up. I said, “Look, the tongue goes up. This thing is lifting off…it was supposed to be rocketing. So it was like a bomb. A projectile of some sort. When I finished it, they said, ‘We can’t have it going up, it doesn’t make any sense’. So it’s coming down. Couldn’t convince them. This fucking band.”

LEMMY And His Metallic Monster MOTÖRHEAD Showed Their IRON FIST 40 Years Ago Today

Back in time

17 April 2022

IRON FIST is the fifth studio LP by speed metal freaks LEMMY and
his two MOTÖRHEAD amigos. It was released 40 years ago today,
on 17 April 1982. It peaked at No 6 in the UK.

AllMusic wrote: “Another first-rate Motörhead album, the fifth in a row,
to be precise. Iron Fist is the final one to feature the band’s classic lineup, as
guitarist “Fast” Eddie Clarke would depart following the album’s completion.”

Score 4/5.

R.I.P. Lemmy.

Title track and single (#29 in the UK)…

Picture This – MOTÖRHEAD Photo Book On Its Way

26 December 2021

Manic metalheads MOTÖRHEAD were the ace of spades when it came to
crushing the legal level of decibels with their kamikaze racket. True noise
champions, led by party animal LEMMY who would have celebrated his
76th birthday 2 days ago (born 24 Dec 1945 in Stoke-on-Trent, England)

The band canned 22 studio albums between 1975
and 2015. (Lemmy passed away on 28 December 2015).

A new photo book about the legendary trio titled
FAST & LOOSE is coming next week, 30 December.
Order info here.

“From 1976 to 1982 Graham Mitchell traveled countless miles of highway with Motörhead as their tour manager and trusted friend. Fortunately, he brought along his camera. Captured through the lens of their trusted friend, those photos—many of them never seen before—have now been collected in the new book “Motorhead: Fast & Loose – Snapshots from the Graham Mitchell Archive.” The images are a gritty, intimate and authentic “insider’s view” of daily life on the road with Lemmy, Phil Taylor, and Eddie Clarke as they were setting out to take over the world.”

MOTÖRHEAD Classic ACE OF SPADES Played On A Pipe Organ Of A Church (No Joke)!

13 August 2021

A couple of mindboggling bellringers in the Netherlands had a totally
insane idea. Why not play MOTÖRHEAD classic ACE OF SPADES on an
antique pipe organ?

Musician and organ player Frank Steijns performed it as part the of the
2021 Tower Festival in Weert, south-eastern Netherlands, accompanied
by his riff-roaring guitar friend Jitse Zonneveld.

Motörhead reacted/shared on Twitter: “Here’s one we really like. Enjoy!”

I wonder if God and his
son Jesus are fans…

The flabbergasting original…
