Saw Motorhead at the weekend supported by Saxon.
Saxon were fun, if a little old and doddery. Been a while since I've seen them and was relieved to observe that they have given up the licra.
Did a couple of songs off there new album which sounded esxactly like any other Saxon songs.
Highlights were "Denim and Leather" and "747" shame there was no "Wheeels of steeeal!"
Oh yeah, for some reason they had 10 little plastic skulls on stage: they are old enough to know better!!!
Motorhead were awesome.
Three blokes playing the rawist, loudest, rock and roll on the planet.
We had stay clean, overkill, rosalea, OTT, Ace of spades, kiled by death, and whorehouse blues. Loads of other stuff too. hour and half just went.
Did motorhead used to be louder? I think so. Used to be that when you saw them you used to be deaf for a week!! Now its justa couple of days. Probably afucking law about it or something.
Mind you, if there were a law about it in the seventies I might not be half deaf now!!
If you get a chance to see motorhead just go. Don't ever pass it up. Never seen a duff motorhead gig. I know its not the original line up, but in fairness even the original line of phil and eddir were not actually the original lineup so .. ... so what.
They are hard.
As Lemmy says "We are Motorhead, and we play ROCK AND ROLL". They do what it says on the tin. No props, just a bass, some drums, a guitar, and some vocals.
Can you really ask for more?
I can't. My life is richer for having seen Motorhead again. Also, when they played The Ace of Spades I kept thinking of my old cat "The Ace".
As for Saxon? Well may the band play on.
Rock and Roll needs some fun and Saxon give that in Spades.
Free the Guinea Pigs.
