MOTÖRHEAD: "Clean Your Clock"

Label: UDR
Rating: Live
Review by Martien Koolen

 This superb "new" live album was recorded at the Zenith Hall in Munich (Germany) during the winter of the previous year and it is a worthy legacy for Lemmy. These songs were recorded only weeks before his sad death and as Lemmy would say: "Turn the volume up, because the only way to feel the noise is when it's good and loud..."

The fifteen songs on this live album are almost all Motorhead classics and the CD kicks off with one of the best metal songs ever being Bomber and it ends with another classic Lemmy track Overkill. Other headbanging highlights are Stay Clean, Metropolis, Orgasmatron, No Class and of course Ace Of Spades. Kilmister, Campbell and Dee play their socks off as usual and the musical energy can be felt in every played note and chord.

The only thing which I find rather superflouos is the guitar solo just after the song Over The Top. The rest of the material on the set list is spot on and shows Motorhead at its peak; so sad that Lemmy ('we are Motorhead and we are going to kick your ass") will not be performing anymore, he will be truly missed!
