Biography

Motörhead's overwhelmingly loud and fast style of heavy metal was one of the most groundbreaking styles the genre had to offer in the late '70s. Though the group's leader, Lemmy Kilmister, had his roots in the hard-rocking space rock band Hawkwind, Motörhead didn't bother with his old group's progressive tendencies, choosing to amplify the heavy biker rock ...

5.0 out of 5 stars The real Motorhead 6 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
'Bastards' was Motorhead's first release after the disappointing major label effort 'March or Die' and its title is significant: Bastards was Lemmy's original choice for the band's name, and it's easy to see this album not just as a return to form but as a reboot of the entire Motorhead project. Also significant is that Wurzel was drifting away at the time; his contribution to 'Bastards' is minimal, leaving the band as a three-piece again, finally.

They never put a foot wrong here. The first few tracks are as clinical and eloquent an expression of Lemmy's philosophy as you're ever likely to hear; midway through there is some surprisingly emotional and personal material in 'Don't Let Daddy Kiss Me,' 'Liar' and 'Lost in the Ozone'; and 'Bastards' closes with two stone-cold classics, 'We Bring the Shame' (possibly my favourite Motorhead song) and 'Devils'. These last two are peppered with psychedelic touches that seem to bring Lemmy full circle back to Hawkwind while losing none of the Motorhead crunch.

Everyone is on great form here -- Lemmy's never sung better and even reels off a bass solo, guitar solos are imaginative and never gratuitous, even the more routine tracks like 'Born to Raise Hell' and 'I'm the Man' are fizzing with energy and every performance is as tight and hard as can be.

'Overkill' will always loom large in the Motorhead catalogue and in the history of hard rock generally. But pick up that, 'Bastards' and 'Inferno' -- three albums spanning three decades -- and I think you've got the very best of Motorhead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Play That Guitar Just Like Ringin' A Bell! 18 April 2008
By Ed
Format:Audio CD
`Bastards' is Mikkey Dee's first and Würzel's last proper Motörhead album, so that's the nominal line up changes out of the way, so now for the important stuff. What exactly did Phil and Lemmy have for breakfast during the recording? Respectfully, Cider and Jack Daniels. Erm yeah. Anyway, `Bastards' is another brilliantly monikered album, somewhat of a lost classic for the band, not because the fans have forgotten it or the band just the standard record company bullpoo. Honestly, Motörhead should have been bigger than Metallica (mainly due to more quality songs, musicianship and live performances) but they had a insanely high amount of record company and managerial bullpoo to deal with instead, just typical!

`Bastards' is an album of two half's, I know all albums have two sides but this has somewhat of a clear divide in terms of musical direction. The A side is frighteningly good, the first 5 songs are just balls to the wall, be that balls to the wall speed metal or rock 'n' roll, its achingly heavy (barring the ballad `Don't Let Daddy Kiss Me' which is tender but I could be a prat and argue that lyrically it's still heavy). The second side still rocks but displays the bands more experimental side, and although less successful than the frankly stellar A side, its still rather good. The AC/DC of erm rock 'n' roll? (I was going to say metal but that's not strictly the case)...hardly. `Liar' displays a new sort of groove for the band, all mid tempo and angry! `Lost in the Ozone' is a power ballad (two ballads on a Motöralbum? It'll be MTV unplugged next!). `I'm the Man' is a weird sort of bluesy grunge that doesn't actually work, but it's the only one on the album, so we can overlook that. Oh crikey it's all experimental! But doth it rock? Aye, indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic overlooked album 2 July 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Motorhead were not getting on with their record label at the time, and this cd ended up only getting a very limited release. I am not sure if it really did only get released in Germany, but that's where I got my copy. I think it is one of their best, and shows a nice variety of songs. Born to Raise Hell is an all-time classsic, as is On Your Feet or On Your Knees. I think this equals 1916 as their finest recording as a four-piece.

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern classic! 25 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
Wow! Anybody who still thinks that Ace Of Spades was Motorhead's greatest achievement need to check this album out! The album still does what all their best albums do - loud, dirty rock n roll but this time everything has been pumped up right in your face. It sounds as though, for the first time in a long time, the 'Head have let some modern influences in on their sound. Be it thrash metal on 'Burner' or the Alice In Chains tune-down rifforama of 'Liar' and even closer 'Devils' whose venomous energy spirals magnificently as it closes the the album is great. Even the 12 bar blues songs - here represented by single 'Born To Raise Hell' and 'Bad Woman' seem to have somehow had a facelift to make them sound cutting edge. This is one of those magical albums where you go "What the f@%k was THAT??!!" Before playing it again and again. Motorhead proved they are still as deadly and relevant as ever, especially when you look at the musical landscape of the time - Metallica had gone soft and the World was waiting The Next Big Thing to come along after grunge had followed Cobain to the grave. Motorhead really could and should have stepped up and claimed it but alas, they once again failed again to make headway. Still, with the band currently doing well and finding their niche on the live circuit as legends everything worked out OK in the end! One of my favourite rock albums of all time, go buy it!
