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!
#8 - Lem and Philthy bravely go outside the box for "Fast" Eddie’s replacement in 1982 and hire on Brian "Robbo" Robertson (ex-THIN LIZZY, WILD HORSES), whose work on the Another Perfect Day album (released June 4, 1983) proves to be shockingly tasteful, meticulous and smoothly reclined. The album would prove to stand the test of time, but in its day, the fit was seen as plain bad.
But everything from Joe Petagno's glorious artwork to the finely-crafted songs 'I Got Mine', 'Dancing On Your Grave' and 'Die You Bastard!' 'shine' on this album!
