Did get Lemmy's autograph on both occasions, I sold one of these a few years ago...the other is lost somewhere. What did Lemmy say to you, if anything? Meanwhile your avatar has me mesmerised... "yes master I will walk off this cliff..." I can't remember too much about them, but he was drinking 7-up at one of them, he'd lost it and asked where it was...very vague though. My mate who I was with lived in Heaton Moor at the time. Lemmy did say that he used to live there. I know he used to live in Cheetham Hill during his wacky Hawkwind days of the early '70's but Heaton Moor? Interesting yes, I still remember him singing Silver Machine... He left Hawkwind after getting thrown in jail in America in 1974 and lost touch with the band...something like that anyway... Another Motorhead album I really like btw is Orgasmatron!! He didn't sing that much for them but he wrote and sung 3 songs for HW. 'The Watcher' 'Lost Johnny' and of course.. 'Motorhead' which is where he got the name for his band from. These three songs are all on Motorhead's first album, which btw, is by far their best.

A little slice of pop heaven! Thanks. I didn't have high expectations for this thread anyway but I knew if there was one person who would reply it would be you. Saved me. I liked them in the mid-70's just before I got into heavier stuff. I did have a cassette of the live album that came out around ('77?), but I forget what it was called. 10cc were from Manchester btw Yeah. It was probably Live And Let Live. That's their major live album and I think it was released around '77. I don't have it but I should get it... They also put out one of those In Concert programmes for the BBC like Genesis from around the same time. There are clips of it on YouTube. The version of Rubber Bullets off there kills. Thats the one! I liked it, it was pretty good. Its a shame they weren't just a little heavier, they would have made a good prog-rock band. Of course 'Dreadlock Holiday' is played in snippets on SkySports Cricket coverage. "I don't like cricket. I love it!" Cool. I should try and get hold of it. Kind of agree on the heaviness factor. I think they could've gained a lot more respect from Rock fans had they fleshed out their sound more. On the other hand I don't think the Pop band label people seem to slap o them is completely fair. A lot of the time they were really just taking the piss out of commercial music, especially on their debut album. Donna is hilarious, never fails to make me laugh. If they are to be classed as a Pop band I think you have to at least give them the subgenre Art Pop. In a similar way to Phil Collins' first three albums I think ithey were much more sophisticated than most chart-bothering music. Do you know the story behind Dreadlock Holiday? Its actually based on real life events that happened to Graham Gouldman and Justin Hayward while they were on holiday in Jamaica. I agree. I don't think you can call them pop as such, but too soft to be a hard rock band. IMO They fall into the same category as ELO, which was another of my favourite bands of that era, but they went really crappy in the '80's. I did know something about the Jamaica thing, but I'd forgotten what it was Thanks for reminding me
