  • Motorhead are a rock and roll legend. From their bruising beginnings to current status as hard rockin’ Godfathers, Lemmy and company have stayed true to their roots and have prospered at least well enough to stay on the road and make albums.
    The first Motorhead incarnation remains, to many, the classic line-up with Lemmy Kilmister on bass and (ahem) vocals, Philthy Animal Taylor on drums and Fast Eddie Clarke on guitars. Fast Eddie is the key ingredient to the classic crash and burn Motorhead sound that gave us the immortal “Ace Of Spades” and earlier platters like “Overkill” and “Bomber”. Clarke’s style, a thick blues and riff heavy attack gave Motorhead their distinctive hooks, much needed amid the bombast.
    “Iron Fist”, Clarke’s last effort with the band, followed on the heels of “No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith”, the classic live album. Following this album was no easy task, but thanks to Clarke’s slightly cleaner production, “Iron Fist” is a classic. My edition includes live performances on a second CD.
    The hooks and humor are there, including “I’m The Doctor”, “I’m A Loser” and “Don’t Need Religion”, a topic near and dear to Kilmister’s heart.
    “Iron Fist” may pale a little in the shadow of “Ace Of Spades”, but then again, nobody could top that outing. A fine effort from a great rock and roll band.
