January 24th Motörhead Music/UDR is proud to present: The Wörld Is Ours-Vol 1 - Everywhere Further Than Everyplace Else

Another country, another town, another place, the greatest road warriors in rock have once again bled their sweat all over another stage. A sold-out crowd roars their approval. Here we go: Lemmy steps up to the mike…

“WE ARE MOTÖRHEAD ! . . . AND WE PLAY ROCK‘N‘ROLL !”

And after each show one thing is crystal clear: Motörhead remain the finest, loudest, hardest and coolest live British rock’n’roll band around. The global tour for their 20th studio release, The Wörld is Yours, took in Motörhead bangers from America to Argentina, Belgium to Brazil, from Sweden to Spain and dozens of other countries all over the world.

In celebration of their 35 years on the road, on January 24th Motörhead Music/UDR is proud to present: The Wörld Is Ours-Vol 1 – Everywhere Further Than Everyplace Else, a blistering DVD containing some of the finest moments from the tour, including the entire performance from Chile’s Teatro Caupolican, shot and filmed in classic black and white by Banger Films and Sam Dunn (Iron Maiden Flight 666, Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage). Mixed by the band‘s long-time producer Cameron Webb, The Wörld Is Ours – Vol 1 – Everywhere Further Than Everyplace Else is stuffed with the classics Motörfans demand, from ‘Overkill‘ to “Ace Of Spades” to “Killed By Death” as well as some old gems like “Over The Top” and new favorites such as “I Know How To Die.”

As well as this epic Motörperformance, exciting numbers from the shows in Manchester and New York are also included on the triple-disc digipack set, along with a series of extensive, in depth and exclusive interviews with the band, a bonus double live CD of the Chile show (incl. selected tracks from NY & Manchester), plus a superbly photographed booklet documenting life on the road during the tour.

On January 26, Motörhead make their return to the U.S. and Canada on the multi-bill festival, GIGANTOUR, with Megadeth, Volbeat and Lacuna Coil.  Gigantour is a chance to tour with like-minded artists “that play heavy music in a high-energy environment,” says Dave Mustaine.  The tour will kick off on Jan. 26 in Camden, NJ and run through Feb. 28 in Denver, and will include stops in NY (Jan. 28) and Los Angeles (Feb. 24).

In other Motörhead news:

– Lemmy, The Movie, the film about Motörhead’s iconic frontman, won Best Film/DVD at the recent Classic Rock Awards in the U.K. and has also received an RIAA Gold sales award in North America.

– Paul Inder, Lemmy’s son, runs a successful recording studio in Los Angeles, Inder Music Studios, where Lemmy has been known to work. Says Paul, “Everyone who has come here so far loves the vibe of the place.”

– In last month’s issue of Revolver Magazine, the cover story was dedicated to the 100 Greatest Living Rock Stars, with Lemmy (of course) among the greats.

– In CMJ’s 2011 year-end charts, Motörhead’s CD, The World Is Yours, was number one on the Loud Rock chart.  Upon the record’s release, it spent six weeks at number one on this chart, which is the longest that Motörhead has held that position at radio.  Number One!

– We recently told you about Motörhead wine. (Their Shiraz got great reviews: “A fairly grown-up wine – can taste the fruitiness. A panel favorite.”  And “A red wine that’s ‘Aces.’”)  Now comes Motörhead Vodka. It’s a premium, 80 proof Vodka made from 100% locally grown wheat that has been distilled and bottled in Sweden.  It has a rich, full-bodied and complex character, with a light and fruity aftertaste. One reviewer said, “That’s how women sometimes describe Lemmy.”

– In Duff McKagan’s ESPN.com weekly column, he recently wrote about his band, Loaded, opening for Motörhead in Germany. He says, “Being here on the road with Motörhead is to get an awe-inspiring peek into legend. Their consistancy remains a sort of explosive touchstone for all of us who need to be reminded of what is real and true and honest about rock music. Lemmy is still more on top of his game than five 20-year olds combined. If you get a chance to see this band, don’t even try to think twice about it. They are the very best of what it is all about…it’s like going to rock and roll church.”

– Motörhead were recently nominated for a Shorty Award, honoring the best of social media, recognizing the people and organizations producing real-time short form content across the social Web.

– Lemmy performed with Camp Freddy on their last 2011 show, which took place at the at the world famous Roxy on the Sunset Strip on the day before Lemmy’s 66th birthday. Participating in the tribute to Lemmy that night were Slash, Matt Sorum, John Lydon, among others, and also included birthday greetings from Ozzy.

– Lemmy will be part of a Ronnie James Dio tribute album which will be out later this year.

– And finally, two German scientists/academics discovered Motörhead in recent years and wrote an article about them, saying:  “This band is loud and fresh, hard and relevant…Motörhead are the hardest trio of the rock world…The band is rocking.”

We agree!!

While the original members of BLACK SABBATH – guitarist Tony Iommi, singer Ozzy Osbourne, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward – appear to be reuniting with one rehearsal already in the can, there’s talk that a tour will happen in early 2012. According to rumours passed along to BraveWords.com, the godfathers of heavy metal will be teaming up with fellow UK metal gods JUDAS PRIEST and the legendary MOTÖRHEAD for a tour of North America in the spring, before Sabbath heads over to Europe for the summer festival season in June/July.

September 14th, 2011

Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rainn Wilson and Natalie Portman

In Stores Today!
DVD SRP: $28.98 / Blu-ray Disc SRP: $29.99

Loud music. Pornography. Burning shit to the ground. These are a few of Hesher’s favorite things, and all to the soundtrack of Metallica and Motorhead. And they are what Hesher (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) brings into the lives of TJ (Devon Brochu) and his father Paul (Rainn Wilson) when he takes up residence in the garage uninvited. Grief stricken by the loss of TJ’s mother in a car accident, Paul can’t muster the strength to evict the strange squatter and soon the long-haired, tattooed Hesher becomes a fixture in the household. Like a force of nature, Hesher’s anarchy shakes the family out of their grief and helps them embrace life once more.

Fans can currently check out some exclusive clips of special bonus features that have been posted at several locations throughout the past week. A hilarious “family dinner” outtake can be viewed now at MetalSucks.net, a “What is HESHER?” behind-the-scenes feature can be viewed at PureVolume.com, and a Hesher sketch book feature can be viewed at Bloody-Disgusting.com.

Heavy TO

Heavy T.O.

July 23-24, 2011

Review and pics by Monika Deviat

 

On July 23rd and 24th, 10 000 metalheads descended upon Downsview Park in Toronto ON for Heavy T.O. The two day festival took place the same weekend as Heavy MTL. This was the third year for Heavy MTL and its success from right from the first year prompted MTL organizers Daniel Glick and Nick Farkas to team up with Live Nation to create Heavy T.O. Two stages had bands playing right after each other, about 11 per day. Heavy T.O. sponsor, Jägermeister had a tent area set up with games and were hosting some of the autograph sessions.

MOTÖRHEAD – “Würz Was Pouring A Guinness And Cracking A Joke When He Succumbed To A Heart Attack; At Least We Know He Went With A Smile”

July 12th, 2011

MOTÖRHEAD have issued the following statement regarding the passing of former guitarist Michael “Würzel” Burston who died on July 9th from ventricular fibrillation caused by heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy), at the age of 61:

“We are greatly saddened to confirm that our long-time friend and comrade Würzel died Saturday at his home. Würz was pouring a Guinness and cracking a joke when he succumbed to a heart attack; at least we know he went with a smile. It is a cliche to say that words cannot describe how we feel, and in this case, other than ones such as ‘shit’ and ‘awful’ and ‘very very sad’ it is true, they really can’t. We all shared many many great times together, and what he did for Motörhead is quite simply indelible. As our good friend Steve ‘Krusher’ Joule said, ‘RIP dear Würzel, a rocker and a gentleman.'”

Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister added: “Wurzel was my friend and my brother and he’s never going to laugh with me again or bitch me out or do….anything. And that truly and cosmically SUCKS. RIP Wurz Godspeed. Good Man.”

Würzel recorded nine albums for Motörhead starting with the collection No Remorse (1984) up until Sacrifice (1995).

MOTÖRHEAD – “Lemmy Gave Würzel His Name In The Back Of A Taxi”

July 11th, 2011

On July 9th former MOTÖRHEAD guitarist Michael “Würzel” Burston sadly passed away in the UK. He was aged 61. The band has since issued a statement on the passing of former bandmate. A spokesperson for the band told RockAAA their thoughts were with their former guitarists family at this difficult time:

“It was actually Lemmy who gave Würzel his name in the back of a taxi, as he thought he looked like the TV character Worzel Gummidge because of his wild hair.”

The spokesperson went on to explain Würzel’s wife had said he had been unwell for some time with heart trouble, which left him struggling to climb the stairs at home.

As a tribute to their fallen friend, who they described as one of the nicest men, the band requested Rock Radio play ‘Killed By Death’ in tribute, as it was a track co-written by Lemmy and Würzel during a taxi journey from the flat they were sharing at the time and the Brittania Studios.

According to Wikipedia, before joining Motörhead in 1984, Burston had been a corporal in the Army, serving in Germany and Ireland with the 1st Battalion of the Gloucestershire Regiment, and had played in the bands BASTARD and WARFARE. Joining another relatively unknown guitarist, Phil Campbell, they played together at a Motörhead audition, and both were taken on. Würzel eventually left the band in 1995 and can be heard on the following albums:

No Remorse (1984)
Orgasmatron (1986)
Rock ‘n’ Roll (1987)
Nö Sleep at All (1988)
The Birthday Party (1990)
1916 (1991)
March ör Die (1992)
Bastards (1993)
Sacrifice (1995)

More recently, Würzel had launched a new band called LEADER OF THE DOWN, who headlined the main stage at Never Mind The Bullocks!, a fundraising music festival in aid of Midlands Air Ambulance in late June.

Former MOTÖRHEAD Guitarist Würzel Passes

July 9th, 2011

As posted to Bravewords.com:
According to official BW&BK sources, former MOTÖRHEAD guitarist Michael “Würzel” Burston sadly passed away earlier today in the UK. He was aged 61.

According to Wikipedia, before joining Motörhead in 1984, Burston had been a corporal in the Army, serving in Germany and Ireland with the 1st Battalion of the Gloucestershire Regiment, and had played in the bands BASTARD and WARFARE. Joining another relatively unknown guitarist, Phil Campbell, they played together at a Motörhead audition, and both were taken on.

Bastards (1993)
Sacrifice (1995)

More recently, Würzel had launched a new band called LEADER OF THE DOWN, who headlined the main stage at Never Mind The Bullocks!, a fundraising music festival in aid of Midlands Air Ambulance in late June.

Burston acquired the nickname Würzel while in the Army, being compared to the character Worzel Gummidge due to his scarecrow-style hair and bumpkin-like manner. Motörhead singer Lemmy demanded that Würzel add an umlaut to the ‘U’ in his name, for heavy metal effect.

Würzel joined Motörhead for the classic ‘Ace Of Spades’ at the Hammersmith Apollo on November 28, 2009.

Members of Motörhead, The Stray Cats, and Lonesome Spurs team up for new HeadCat release!

May 16th, 2011

LEMMY KILMISTER (Motörhead), SLIM JIM PHANTOM (The Stray Cats) and DANNY B. HARVEY (Rockats, 13 Cats, Lonesome Spurs), have teamed up in a high-energy, “take no prisoners” combo to remind the world how real rock ‘n roll is supposed to f*ckin sound.  HeadCat serves up a delicious melting pot with flavors of rockabilly, punk, blues and undeniable rock ‘n roll!

HeadCat was formed in 2000 after recording an Elvis Presley tribute special to which all band members contributed.  Slim Jim Phantom (drums, percussion), was born in Brooklyn and listened to his parents’ jazz records. At the age of ten he took up the drums although he always says that the drums chose him.  He is an exceptional drummer who cemented his place among rock royalty long time ago and inspires and excites audiences worldwide.

Danny B. Harvey (guitar, piano) is Texas born and also discovered his love for music very early. He started playing the guitar at the age of six and even got a full scholarship to study classical guitar. He developed a finger picking guitar style that’s very unique and based on his idols Merle Travis and Chet Atkins but also a result of his classical-technique education.

Lemmy Kilmister (vocals, bass, harmonica) was born and raised in England and started to play the guitar at the age of sixteen. With a laughing eye he always said that he only took the guitar to impress the girls. He is an autodidact and changed early to bass as he stated he wasn’t a good guitar player. After founding Motörhead in 1975 he knows the ups and downs in the business and has reached the status of an Icon all over the world.

The new HeadCat album ‘Walk The Walk…Talk The Talk’ is due to be released July 5th, 2011 through Niji Entertainment Group, the record label Wendy Dio and her and late husband Ronnie James Dio formed before his untimely passing.

Twelve fantastic songs for ‘Walk The Walk, Talk The Talk’ were chosen easily. HeadCat prepare to take over the airwaves with their first single ‘American Beat’.  ‘American Beat’ is a song written in the studio – Lemmy had the words and the rest came together very quickly.  ‘I Ain’t Never’ is one of the songs Lemmy really likes and Danny knew it – a real country, rockabilly number, full of love and ready to take you drifting away.   ‘Let It Rock’ is one of their favorite Chuck Berry tunes – The Stones did it a lot in their live show in the 70’s – HeadCat plays a different version. ‘Something Else’ is a classic Eddie Cochran – Lemmy came on stage with the Stray Cats and jammed on it at a show in the 90’s at Hammersmith Odeon so it came quite natural to take this on the record as well.

‘Walk The Walk…Talk The Talk’ track listing confirmed as follows:
American Beat
Say Mama
I Ain’t Never
Bad Boy
Shaking All Over
Let It Rock
Something Else
The Eagle Flies On Friday
Trying To Get To You
You Can’t Do That
It’ll Be Me
Crossroads

HeadCat prepare to take over the airwaves with their first single ‘American Beat’.  ‘American Beat’ is a song written in the studio – Lemmy had the words and the rest came together very quickly.  ‘I Ain’t Never’ is one of the songs Lemmy really likes and Danny knew it – a real country, rockabilly number, full of love and ready to take you drifting away.   ‘Let It Rock’ is one of their favorite Chuck Berry tunes – The Stones did it a lot in their live show in the 70’s – HeadCat plays a different version. ‘Something Else’ is a classic Eddie Cochran – Lemmy came on stage with the Stray Cats and jammed on it at a show in the 90’s at Hammersmith Odeon so it came quite natural to take this on the record as well.

‘Walk The Walk…Talk The Talk’ track listing confirmed as follows:
American Beat
Say Mama
I Ain’t Never
Bad Boy
Shaking All Over
Let It Rock
Something Else
The Eagle Flies On Friday
Trying To Get To You
You Can’t Do That
It’ll Be Me
Crossroads
