Motorhead With Reverned Horton Heat 09/09/09

Sorry about the late review but I had a Birthday and a crazy belligerent weekend.

This night of the Show 09/09/09 an upside down 06/06/06, so we went in looking for trouble. Arriving just as the Reverend Horton Heat took the stage everyone was hyped up for a good time. This trio from Texas is hot with a larger then life stage presence. They have such a round and full sound for three players because of the stand up bass and a lick called ‘hurricane'. Playing lead and rhythm guitar simultaneously, The Rev. (aka Jim Heath) can make one instrument into two. With songs like "Nurture My Pig," "Drinkin' and Smokin' Cigarettes" and "Psychobilly Freakout" one can see why the have such a cult following. They joked, played around and the Rev. did his thing by jumping up on the bass mid song. Then the out comes Motorhead. This classic power-trio is loud and fast with a punk rock style of heavy metal. Never changing Ian Fraiser Kilmister, known as Lemmy came out in all his glory. Remember in the 70's they still had rock gods. Now over 60 Lemmy is still drinkin' and jokin' on stage with his thick English accent. Always in black cause he doesn't need to wash them so often, he will never change unless someone finds something "darker than black.' Motorhead is the lasted song Lemmy wrote for Hawkwind one of his first projects. They where a prog rock band with there signature song "Silver Machine" written by Lemmy in 72'. The 70's were long but the 80's even longer with Ace of Spades being Motorhead's first American album. In NYC when they ended with this Ace of Spades everyone was wanting more. All the people, all in black, poring out of Roseland went on into the night for more drinking and depravity.
