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!
#7 - September 15 of 1984 sees the release of confusing compilation album, No Remorse which covered the band's Bronze Records years. There’s a shock inside though, with new track that reveal that Motörhead has now become a four-piece band, the new lineup consisting of Lemmy, Wurzel, Phil Campbell and Pete Gill. We are all 'killed by death', as the most powerful power trio in rock is no more. But the limited leather sleaze was oh so metal, aside from '… ' Death' (which was promoted by a killer video!), we saw newbies like the vicious 'Snaggletooth', 'Steal Your Face' and 'Locomotive'.
