Motörhead – Motörizer

Scott sent this record and it blew me away from track one. I love Motörhead. It’s pure metal blues rawk. Of course it is, it’s Motörhead! The first four tracks (Runaround Man, Teach You How To Sing The Blues, When The Eagle Screams and Rock Out) play like a greatest hits collection, and then the record just keeps relentlessly going with great tune after great tune and a blissful rock-out state settles in… I found myself totally impressed by the straight-up and uncompromising sound this band puts forth. For a trio, they make a helluva lot of noise! At high volume (and through the good headphones), this is a masterpiece. This record makes me want to break some stuff and then drive really fast! To where? Does it matter?

Yeah, you could argue that all Motörhead sounds kind of the same. You might not be far wrong, I mean, this is their 19th studio album since 1975 and it sounds like only Motörhead sounds… But a better question is: who cares? When a band rocks this hard and lays down such crushing riffs at such a punishing pace, who really fucking cares? Not me!

Motörizer. Get it. Plug it in and turn it the hell UP. Thanks heaps, Scott!!

Motörhead! Motörhead! Motörhead! Motörhead! Motörhead!…

    I’ll throw in a “get well soon” Lemmy here as well. His doctor is pissed at him. The doc told him to stop drinking vodka and cokes. Lemmy said, “Can I drink wine?” The doc said, “one glass at dinner is fine.” But Lemmy just switched the vodka and cokes for wine and he’s drinking just as much. He’s gotta do something or he will die.

      You know, I doubt he will help himself. It’s sad, absolutely. But drink that much for that long and then try to stop because it’s finally going to get you? How many times do you see people out in front of the hospital, in a wheelchair, smoking a cigarette and they’re strapped to a f-ing air tank? There reaches a point where quality of life is already gone, and it would just be worse if they stopped what they’d been doing that is currently killing them. So they just keep right on doing it.

      That’s what she said.

      Er, and yes! I WILL! Within the safe confines of my own four walls and after the kids have gone to bed. Er… Man life gets complicated when you have to be more responsible!

        Yeah, even though this new (to us) house is twice the size of the old one, I still really don’t have much space that I could call my own. Hm. I also don’t have anywhere to put the drum set I want. It’s a cruel world.

      No kidding! I’ll be getting to the Sloan in this series, fear not. James has sent me much Sloan. So awesome.

      But yeah, this Motörhead record kills. I’m listening to it right now…

        No, I don’t think it’s an allergy… I think he’s having us on. I think he owns all the records and lovingly plays them every night, trapped by telling us he’s apathetic because he thinks trying to be funny will deflect us, when really they speak to his very heart of hearts.
