You can’t out-Motorhead Motorhead so we knew we had to try a completely different style to the original recordings. We found that beneath the Rock and Roll bombast lay great songwriting so it was a pleasure to record the songs.
‘Ace Of Spades’ is one of those songs that nearly everyone likes and is much loved by Punks and metalhead alike – I still have a much played battered copy of the 7” single and had the poster of the classic line up in bandit attire on my bedroom wall.
As musicians we were influenced by Motorhead from an early age, it was very poignant when we got to know and drink regularly with Lemmy, Phil, Wurzel and the gang.
During lockdown, a time when we could reflect over the many years playing live and hanging out with Rock n Roll Royalty such as Motorhead here in London it became very important to pay tribute to such an influential band, a band who lived the life 24/7.
