I so wish it wasn’t the end. I beg for it not to be over. No legendary Lemmy-esque magical answer by way of a fantastic twist to the Motörhead storyline. Instead and at very least, we are blessed with the recording made during the band’s final live chapter. For most, the parting words from our pure rock protagonist, and fittingly put together in a series of manifestations for our enduring enjoyment.
Clean Your Clock is the historically significant recordings of November 21st and 22nd in Munich, Germany. Considering Lemmy’s fascination with relics of the Reich, there is a fitting irony to this farewell, albeit worlds away from the turmoil typical of that time and the location.
The cover art says it all to a tee. A fantastic image of Lemmy in delivering in full force, despite the ill-health plaguing this tour.
This gargantuan collection which will be released in a number of formats from CD’s to DVD’s, Blu-ray to vinyl and even limited edition box sets with options for grade of Motörhead medals.
As Lemmy opens with the lyrics to Bomber I think it’s safe to say that all would be understood should the listener shed a tear. It really is that moving. The recording is superb and you can close your eyes and feel as though you are stage front for the bands finale. When you consider the pain and discomfort Lemmy must have endured throughout the tour, a lump in the throat is sure to interfere with your vocal celebration of this historic set. The final show of this Tour was December 11th, 2015 and Lemmy shuffled off the mortal constraints at on December 28th the age of 70. Perhaps the universe saw fit to leave merely two days between discovering the severity of his illness, and leaving this world, at very least on his own terms. Just exactly as he had lived his life. This tribute is very moving indeed, although I must humbly admit to being a Motörhead fan since the release of the debut album in 1977. I am confidently certain that my emotional response to this recording will leave me lonely in the slightest. It’s simply that powerful.
The delivery from Mikkey Dee and Phil Campbell are, as you would expect, just sensational and I can only hope they find some semblance of peace with this tremendous dedication to Lemmy Kilmister. There was, after all is said and done, very good reasoning behind the Lemmy’s often coined proclamation that these were the very finest masters of their craft in the entire world. And for all the remaining members, I trust a fitting celebration of your wealth of memories with the man himself.
LONG LIVE LEMMY. LONG LIVE MOTORHEAD
