Under normal circumstances I probably wouldn't bother posting up this record, but I was just spinning it so thought 'why the hell not'. 

Motörhead - Overkill

Remember back in my Iron Maiden - Women In Uniform post I described myself as something of a metal head? Well, despite this claim, I didn't previously own any Motörhead on vinyl. I know my away around a lot of their records but when the mood struck me a few weeks back to listen to them for the first time in decades I realised there was this glaring ommission from the collection. I didn't mess around, I headed straight to the nearest record store knowing they'd no doubt have a few of Lemmys finest work on wax.

In fact they had most of Motorheads back catalogue, so what to pick up to scratch the itch? I remembered that Orgasmatron and Overkill had been albums I'd enjoyed when I was about 13 so narrowed it down to two easily enough. I then remembered that Overkill was the bands second album with the first largely being viewed as non essential and horaah!! I'd made my choice.

  1. Awesome! Overkill, Bomber, and Ace Of Spades are all essential. I've been thinking about chasing after the original UK Bronze pressings at some point...
