What’s in the bag? (97)


I only own one Motorhead album, and that’s it up there. I’ve always liked them though as they bridged a gap between Rock and Punk when I was listening to both. I did have ‘Bomber’ and ‘No Sleep ’till Hammersmith’ at one point but I’ve no idea what the hell happened to them, lost over the years I guess.

I can’t profess to playing this album very often but with the recent passing of Lemmy I pulled it out again and it brought back some memories, I was only 13 in 1980 when it was released and a bubbling mass of testosterone and teen angst, it was perfect for that!

There’s a good ‘Classic Albums’ documentary about this album so rather than me bleat on about it, I recommend watching the video below, and the album is further below from Spotify:
