Lemmy & Motörhead in the Studio


“Lemmy and Motörhead: In the Studio is essentially a trivia treasure trove. Want to find out which mixer was used to produce ‘Ace of Spades?’ No problem. Want to know how Lemmy wrote the lyrics for some of their greatest albums? Well, that’s in there too.”


Motörhead are a band of legend: a heavy metal outfit that took Rock’n’Roll in its most primitive form, and stretched it endlessly into its darkest extremes. The band drove the genre at 200mph into the semi-mainstream, cementing themselves as the prototypes for subversion in Heavy Metal. Lemmy was the Kaleidoscopic King and poster boy: vocals, bass-playing, song-writing, were all part of his oeuvre. With his iconic sunglasses, handle-bar moustache, and bullet belt, the rock rebel is both identifiable and matchless in his talent; his raw veracity and ability to finely tread the line between melodic convention, and mutinous subversion has meant that nobody really comes before, or even after him.

Charted in clarity and refined detail, the book details the process of production of the greatest rock songs that eventually lead to the band selling over thirty million copies of their music. The musicianship and creativity is expanded upon by intimate interviews with other band members and with producers, and even snippets from the maverick front-man.

Rock and Metal. Originating from Rock N Roll, Rock is a broad genre that draws on blues, rhythm and blues and folk and has spawned most subculture music genres on the 20th and 21st century. Often with a political or social message, Rock music might have become widespread, but it has given and continues to give expression to youth opposition to societal norms.

With its origins in blues rock, psychedelic rock and acid rock the late 1960s and early 1970s saw the birth of the legendary Metal bands including Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and later in the 1970s Iron Maiden and Motorhead joined the pack. The Plasmatics fused metal and punk with Wendy O going on to perform a duet with Lemmy.

We offer Lemmy’s autobiography White Line Fever, Black Sabbath-Symptom of the Universe along with Defender of the Faith a study by Peter Beste of Heavy Metal, one of the most fervent in the history of subculture. Other titles include The Beatles: The Band that Changed the World, Just Kids by Patti Smith and Marc Bolan: Beautiful Dreamer.
