Post Re: RIP Lemmy


^^He speaks more generally about rock and roll and metal. It's from the late 90's I think.


If you are really keen, you can check out his 'final interview', but I don't recommend it. It's bloody depressing watching him in that state.

I've seen that interview; it was a bit hard to understand him at times.

I heard Orgasmatron for the first time today.

Other than the title track (obvs) and Riding With The Driver, I was not impressed at all. Two Fists.

2...2 fists? Surely that's going a bit far.

I haven't heard the whole album but Doctor Rock is just not a good song. Motorhead were opening their set in 04/05 with that and it wasn't a good choice for an opener.

Didn't Lemmy say in his autobiography that the production for Orgasmatron was completely muddy and lacked clarity?

It wasn't the production that bothered me but rather the lack of quality material.

Bastards, on the other hand, is Five Fists.

It has some quality alright. "Red raw" and "Voices from the war" and a few others, but it's not up there.

I'll forgive this as a blip in your otherwise solid voting record Rob. Hammered is a corker - from start to finish - a proto Inferno, and the start of a very purple patch for the band...

It's good alright. But there are no top shelf Motörclassics on it and the middle of the album plateaus a bit so it can't get higher than a 3.

No band in the history of rock or metal has released that many essential albums.

Motorhead have, clearly.

I suppose it depends on how much one likes them, for anyone who has shown more than a passing interest in their work, I would genuinely recommend all of those albums as must have releases. If a newcomer asked, I'd immediately go for the Fast Eddie/Philthy era as essential.

^^That's a pretty big caveat bro! 'These albums are all essential if you are more than a casual fan'. I'd say that's an entirely different category altogether.

To me essential albums are ones that sum up a band/artist's work at either the peak of their powers, or during the peak of their various guises/phases. The problem with Motorhead is that they didn't really change all that much throughout their career, so claiming they have 14 'essential' must have albums is really pushing it. Perhaps 14-15 albums are worth buying if you are a huge fan, but the rest of us don't need that many Motorhead albums.

Judged by an 'outsider's standard', Motorhead perhaps have 2 essential albums, maybe 3 at the absolute most. A lot of people would claim they only really have one: Ace Of Spades.

Hardcore fans are usually not the best judges of this sort of thing. Your average hardcore Maiden fan would probably recommend 8-10 albums to the casual listener, which is just ridiculous.

And I would say No Sleep Til Hammersmith.
