Editorial Reviews Motorhead To Release their latest offering “Clean Your Clock” on May 27th Theywere the Kings of the Road. They lived on it. They loved it. It loved them.And never was the spirit of Motorhead more alive than when they were on tour,shake, rattle and rolling audiences to within an inch of their lives thanks tothat indomitable cocktail of power, purpose and head-crunching volume. Yeah.In fact, after four decades of bone-pulverizing duty, Motorhead were stillenjoying sold-out gigs worldwide. On November 20th and 21st 2015, at theZenith in Munich, Germany, UDR Records made the decision to record. Consultingwith the band’s longtime studio producer Cameron Webb to make sure thetechnical specs were as good as they could be, Motorhead proceeded to delivertwo storming shows. Where there had once been almost too-fast breakneck pace,there was measured yet still thunderous rock’n’roll served up only as theycould, Phil Campbell playing better than he had in years, and Mikkey Deeelevating the art of drumming to the superlative heights which made him one ofmetal’s most coveted skinsmen. Lemmy. Oh he sounds so dialed in, a little meaneven (in the best possible way) snarling here and there, cackling whenappropriate, and singing in a way which will defy every single pre-conceivedexpectation you might have had. Yes, he was fighting ailments. Yes he wasfighting the sadness of losing Phil ‘Philthy Animal’ Taylor. But no, he wasnot flimsy or faded, in fact on Clean Your Clock he lays down the marker forall near-70 year olds in terms of wicked bad-assery. Those first strains ofthe mighty “Bomber” are like a salve to all heavy metal souls, the reverberantclassic forcing you to turn it up, Lemmy snarling and roaring like a man inhis 20s, “Metropolis” grooving like the day it was written, and “Overkill” asmighty a pulverizer as everlook, here is the unavoidable truth. There will beno more Motorhead tours because Lemmy is no longer here, and many, many peopledid not get a chance to hear them one more time on what proved to be theirlast-ever piece of road work. Which makes Clean Your Clock a vitally importantrelease. It is both a celebration and an epitaph, glorious yet not withoutmelancholy. It had to sound right, as with all Motorhead releases, but thisone was arguably more important than any of the others. Webb has done theshow, and the band, proud by helping make sure the power of the band is notlost in some digital sinkhole, maintaining the warmth and curve of Motorhead’sunique live sound. Clean Your Clock is the natural sound of one ofrock’n’roll’s mightiest, rarest and most astoundingly excellent beasts -Motorhead. There isn’t a plaudit they haven’t received and there isn’t aplaudit they don’t deserve. And if there had to be a ‘final’ Motorhead album,perhaps it is fitting that Clean Your Clock, a superb live encapsulation ofthe band at home, is the one. So TURN-THIS-UP because as Lemmy himself said,the only way to feel the noise is when it’s good and loud…
