In celebration of MOTÖRHEAD’s cannonating new slab Aftershock, BraveWords has decided to serve up a primer and reminder as to the 20 most shocking events in the life of Lem and Co! Conflate them, debate them... we’re presenting them in countdown form, until the day of quake, namely the record’s release date, October 22nd. So read on and soak in all the gruesome glory and historical heavy metal!
#12 - Go see Motörhead live in the Another Perfect Day-era (1983) and you might be shocked by the look of the band, or at least its guitarist, who’s short hair and headbands might be augmented with fashion choices like shorts or hawaiian shirts, depending on how much Brian "Robbo" Robertson (ex-THIN LIZZY, WILD HORSES) felt like getting up Lem’s nose that day! Stay tuned for more on this under-rated era of the band!
