MOTÖRHEAD Classics To Be Reissued

MOTÖRHEAD is rightfully regarded as a legend. More than 30 years of turning fans' eardrums and brains into a bloody pulp will do that. Iconic vocalist/bassist Lemmy wouldn't have it any other way.

Three of MOTÖRHEAD's most important albums — 1983's "Another Perfect Day", 1986's "Orgasmatron" and 1987's "Rock 'N' Roll" — are now getting special treatment. Two-disc deluxe expanded editions of each are being released via Sanctuary Records on March 28, 2006. Supplemental bonus tracks include single B-sides, live versions and rarities. The liner notes include essays, previously unseen photos and images of memorabilia. These reissues were prepared with the assistance of the Motorheadbangers Fan Club.

"Another Perfect Day" found Lemmy and drummer Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor being joined by former THIN LIZZY and WILD HORSES guitarist Brian Robertson, who had replaced "Fast" Eddie Clarke. Robertson and Taylor then left the band and Lemmy recruited guitarists Phil Campbell and Wurzel (real name: Mike Burston) and former SAXON drummer Pete Gill. "Orgasmatron" was the new lineup's first full album (after having recorded four songs for the "No Remorse" compilation). Gill left and Taylor returned for "Rock 'N' Roll". These three new releases are the follow up to 2005's two-CD deluxe editions of "Bomber", "Overkill", "Iron Fist" and "Ace of Spades".
