MOTORHEAD Better Motorhead Than Dead - Live At Hammersmith SPV(2007)


Yes it is another live Motorhead album but this one was recorded back in June 2005 at the band's 30th anniversary gig. Two CD's with twenty three songs that cover the band's history and include a few songs making a welcome return to the setlist including the immense 'Dancing On Your Grave'.

Disc 2 wins the day though as you have 'R.A.M.O.N.E.S.', 'Just 'Cause You Got The Power', 'Killed By Death'. 'Going To Brazil' and the big three finale - 'Bomber', 'Ace Of Spades' and 'Overkill'.

All are played with the minimum of fuss and maximum effort. Motorhead even whip out the acoustic guitars for 'Whorehouse Blues' which is something you'd not normally associate Motorhead with!

You just can't beat Motorhead live and it should be compulsory for every rock fan to see them at least once live as I defy anyone to go away disappointed (and temporarily deafened!). Lemmy and co. really are what mean and dirty rock 'n' roll is all about and this live set is as good as any to see what the fuss is all about.
