    Orgasmatron

    Orgasmatron is the only full Motörhead album to feature Pete Gill on the drums, although he also played on the four new tracks recorded for the 1984 No Remorse compilation album. The album's working title was Ridin' with the Driver and later changed to Orgasmatron, it was too late for Joe Petagno to change the cover art and the train design was used. It features some of Motörhead's heaviest songs (Orgasmatron and Deaf Forever) and it is the album (along with No Remorse) that got Motörhead back on track after the critically-acclaimed but commercially unsuccessful 1983 album Another Perfect Day. The album reached number 21 in the UK charts. The song Orgasmatron was re-recorded in 2000 and was available as an Internet download under the name Orgasmatron 2000. It was later included on the band's 2003 five-disc box-set Stone Deaf Forever!

    Iron Fist

    Iron Fist is the sixth album by the British band Motörhead. This was the last album the band recorded with "Fast" Eddie Clarke, who left Motörhead on their second US tour due to a conflict with Lemmy. After his departure, the band drafted ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist Brian Robertson to finish the tour. This album was recorded during the best part of late January and February 1982 at Morgan and Ramport studios in London. Looking back, Lemmy and Phil Taylor admit that it wasn't a good idea for Eddie Clarke to produce the sessions, and even Clarke admits it was a mistake. From the fans' point of view, the tracks were comparable to their earlier predecessors, but the odd two or three tracks lacked the edge and punch of old. The band were already into the British leg of the 'Iron Fist' tour by the time the album was in the shops. Despite this it reached number 6 in the UK charts.

    No Sleep Til Hammersmith (Awaiting Repress)

    No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith is a definitive metal document and it captures Motörhead's Lemmy, Fast Eddie, and Philthy Animal Taylor in their element, live! Motorhead revisits the cream of their back catalog here, leaving their already power-packed studio counterparts in the dust in the process. With the exception of Iron Horse/Born To Lose which was from a 1980 show, the album was recorded at the Leeds and Newcastle shows during the Short, Sharp Pain In The Neck five-date tour in 1981. The name of the tour was a reference to the injury sustained by Philthy Animal Taylor when he was dropped on his head during some after show horseplay. Despite the title of the album, the London venue the Hammersmith Odeon was not played on the tour.

    1916 (Pure Pleasure)

    Lemmy Kilmister had been leading Motörhead for 16 years by the time 1916 was recorded in 1991. Over the years, Motörhead had experienced more than its share of personnel changes - and in fact, Kilmister was its only remaining original member. But the band's sound hadn't changed much, and time hadn't made its sledgehammer approach any less appealing. As sobering as his reflections on the horrors of World War I are on the title song, he's unapologetically amusing on Going to Brazil, Angel City (an ode to the 'beautiful' party people of L.A.), and Ramones (which salutes the New York punk band). Whether the subject matter is humorously fun or more serious, Motörhead is as inspired as ever on 1916.



    Musicians:



    • Lemmy Klimister (bass, vocal)

    • Phillip Campbell, WÜrzel (guitar)

    • Phil Taylor (drums)

    • James Hoskins (cello)




    Recording: 1991

    Production: Peter Solley & Ed Stasium



    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Bad Magic (On Sale)

    Bristling with thunderous attitude, and some of the fiercest rhythms and riffs that'll assault your ears this year, Bad Magic demands that you fall to your knees and pray heartily that your senses don't get completely pulverized, because big-rig head crushers like the totemic and Motöranthemic "Thunder And Lightning" show that Motörhead are as strong, mean, loud, relentless, uncompromising and goddam heavy as ever. Drawing on their own vast catalogue of road-warrior freewheeling rock'n'roll spirit, Bad Magic also strides confidently into some of the earlier attitudes of Motörmusic. There is the driving malevolence of "Choking On Your Screams" underscoring Lemmy in magnificently omnipotent vocal mood, "Electricity" carries a hefty chunk of punk attitude married with some of Phil Campbell's best lead work yet, and "Shoot Out All of Your Lights" screams devilish, greasy, biker-born-screw-you-and-yours attitude, Mikkey Dee's tribal drums pounding out a great path for more Kilmister proclamations. In this, their historic 40th year anniversary, Motörhead will also continue to gleefully deafen fans with a world tour, including an European Summer tour where they will debut brand new Motörclassic "Thunder & Lightning". The world might be in a state of turmoil and uncertainty, but Bad Magic is solid gold proof that you can always bet on Motörhead to deliver the greatest, leanest and meanest of goods through thick and thin.

    Import


    Motörhead's first live album, recorded in early 1978 at The Roundhouse, less than a year after the release of their groundbreaking, self-titled debut. This is vintage, 'take-no-prisoners' Motörhead, and the band (playing a mix of originals and a few speedfreak versions of early R&B, country and British blues songs) is a fast and furious machine.

    Ace of Spades was the fourth album by the British heavy metal giants, Motorhead and its famous for featuring the band's trademark song of the same name as well as for being a major influence in the development of thrash metal. The classic lineup of Lemmy on bass and vocals, 'Fast' Eddie Clarke on guitar and 'Philthy Animal' Taylor on drums was intact and was on a serious roll following the release of both Overkill and Bomber a year earlier. Ace of Spades brilliantly summarizes everything that made this early incarnation of the band so legendary, making it the ideal Motorhead album. Reissued here on 180 gram Vinyl LP!

    Show No Mercy

    1983's Show No Mercy was the album that started it all for the thrash mercanaries and the album ultimately helped inaugerate in the speed and thrash metal movement of the '80s and the extreme metal underground of the '90s. Slayer incorporated the faster, darker elements of Judas Priest and melded it with the punk brutality of Motorhead and its apparent from the the all out assault of the opener Evil Has No Boundaries to the last note of the title track closer that they were a band to be reckoned with.

    Nonagon Infinity

    Pressed On Splattered Vinyl (Dark Vinyl With Light Splatters)


    "Nonagon infinity opens the door," sings Stu Mackenzie, frontman of Australian psych-rockers King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. It turns out, though, that once the door's open, it never closes. That's because the Melbourne septet has ingeniously crafted what may be the world's first infinitely looping LP. Each of the nine, complex, blistering tracks on 'Nonagon Infinity' seamlessly flows into the next, with the final song linking straight back into the top of the opener like a sonic mobius strip. It's exactly the kind of ambitious vision that prompted Rolling Stone to dub the band "one of the most compelling collectives of art-rock experimentalists in recent years." But far from a simple conceptual experiment, the album is both an exhilarating shot of adrenaline and a remarkable feat of craftsmanship, the result of painstaking planning and an eye for detail years in the making.


    The roots of 'Nonagon Infinity' stretch back to 2014, when King Gizzard recorded their critically acclaimed album "I'm In Your Mind Fuzz," which was hailed by Pitchfork as "dense, intricately crafted, and most importantly, powerful."


    "We actually wanted to do this with 'Mind Fuzz,' but it just didn't work," explains Mackenzie. "We ended up writing songs that needed to be on that record but didn't connect to the others, so we had to abandon the idea, but the seeds were sown."


    To an outsider, it may have seemed like the band had completely given up on the concept, as the ever-prolific group quickly followed 'Mind Fuzz' with two more records in 2015, 'Quarters'-described by The Guardian as "the neon intersection of DIY psych and 1960s beach pop"-and the stripped-down 'Paper Mache Dream Balloon,' which earned praise from NPR to Stereogum. The truth, though, was that King Gizzard was honing in on the 'Nonagon Infinity' material the whole time, test-driving various tracks in their explosive live shows to prep for the monumental task of stitching them all together into one searing, multi-movement epic.


    "We really wanted to focus on things that felt good live," says Mackenzie. "We'd grab a little riff here or a little groove there, and we'd jam on them and form songs out of them, which was the opposite of 'Paper Mache,' where we were making songs in an acoustic, classic-songwriting kind of way. I wanted to have an album where all these riffs and grooves just kept coming in and out the whole time, so a song wasn't just a song, it was part of a loop, part of this whole experience where it feels like it doesn't end and doesn't need to end."


    Recorded at Daptone Studios in Brooklyn, the final result is an intricate and immersive listening experience. Lyrical refrains and musical motifs establish themselves and then submerge beneath the chaos, only to resurface unexpectedly later like familiar companions on a labyrinthine journey. Motorhead-grade riffs give way to King Crimson and Yes-levels of prog complexity, as songs churn through unusual time signatures and shifting rhythms with blunt force, laying waste to everything in their path.


    "I wanted it to feel like a horror or sci-fi movie," explains Mackenzie of the album's dark overtones. "The lyrics came as a stream of consciousness, all of these elements just falling out of my head as it was happening."


    "Big Fig Wasp" references a particularly macabre insect that must kill itself in order to perpetuate the species, while "Gamma Knife," with its 11/8-time drum solo, is named for a surgical tool that burns cuts into the skin, and "People-Vultures" plays like a sinister film soundtrack. Album opener "Robot Stop" pulls more directly from the band's recent experiences, inspired in part by their relentless work ethic and tour schedule, which has included festival performances at Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, Montreux Jazz & Roskilde as well as countless sold out dates in rooms across the USA, UK, Europe and Australia.


    "That song's about feeling overworked, like a bit of a robot that's just going to crash and die or something," he says with a laugh. "But you get yourself up and do it again and you robot on and you're alright. It was one of the early ones we wrote for the record, and I think when that song came together, everybody started to feel like were going to actually be able to pull off this never-ending album idea."


    To say they pulled it off would be an understatement. The record is a force to be reckoned with on par with the road trains Mackenzie references in the album's final track.


    "In the Australian desert, in the outback, there are what's called road trains, which are these massive trucks pulling heaps of carriages that can end up being 50 meters long," he explains. "They drive on the road really, really fast, and they're deadly, with these bars in the front to kill kangaroos and anything else in their path."


    'Nonagon Infinity' has opened the door for King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, and they're barreling ahead with more momentum than ever before now. Much like those road trains, with a band this good, the safest place to be is onboard.

    Clean Your Clock


    Colored 180 Gram Double Vinyl with Pop-Up Art


    Motörhead, Kings of the Road for over förty years, are immortalized one more
    time in Clean Your Clock, the superb live album recorded at The Zenith in
    Munich, Germany during the Winter 2015 Bad Magic tour.


    The indomitable cocktail of power, purpose and head-crunching volume that Lemmy Kilmister,
    Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee always succeeded in producing is captured
    superbly by long-time producer Cameron Webb's mix, giving this landmark
    Motörhead release the warmth, curve and punch which helped the band
    achieve international acclaim during a career which saw the Grammy-winning
    icons sell over 15 million albums and play to millions worldwide.


    Clean Your Clock is also a fitting salute to the power of Ian 'Lemmy' Kilmister,
    who founded Motörhead back in 1975 and so sadly passed away on Dec 28th
    2015. Recorded only weeks before, Lemmy snarls, roars and bangs that bass
    with the magisterial air of a man who knows he's a leader.


    Perhaps more than with any other Motörhead album, you need to TURN-THISUP
    because as Lemmy himself said, the only way to feel the noise is when it's
    good and loud...

    Black Thunder

    Colored Vinyl


    Members of Converge, Old Man Gloom and There Were Wires!


    There isn't a lot of guessing required to determine Doomriders' tastes -- the obnoxiously colored cover art, complete with lightning bolt-armed hooded skeleton riding a winged black mare, pretty much screams Metal. Doomriders kicks out a high-octane dose of doom-flavored uptempo rock, with just enough hardcore and punk thrown in to give it a racy edge. This isn't your older brother's spandex-clad '80s metal -- it's the down 'n' dirty stuff that forgoes image for sound. If you're looking for comparisons, think of Motörhead teamed up with the likes of Fu Manchu and Entombed. It's heavy, it's relentless, and of course it sounds better the louder it's turned up. It's time to piss off the neighbors and put your stereo to the test! Splendid Magazine
