Must confess to not having a clue who Marion Brown is but this album has been popping up at me on ig, FB and other places for a few weeks now.

There he is on the front with Archie Shepp. Read a great Invisible Jukebox with Shepp recently. Tells some funny stories like the time Cecil Taylor tricked him on stage and subsequently sacked him.

Well,I ordered this,and finally downloaded the bandcamp app to my phone. Discovered I had a bunch of things on there,even though I don't recall ever creating an account,so that was a bonus. But when I listen to Jobcentre Rejects,it only tells me the name of the song,not the band. So now,if I want to know who I'm listening to I have to look elsewhere for the info. (unless of course I'm missing something really obvious).
Is that the labels fault,or is that common on bandcamp compilations?

Bandcamp has a very simple layout which makes it neat suppose you could say it is more for selling stuff and downloads than just streaming music.

I have the Guns N Wankers 7"s so luckily don't need to purchase,but what a great band. This version of the lp has all the songs from all four 7"s as opposed to the previous incomplete one.



Also,did not know it was members of the Wildhearts.

BMG & MOTÖRHEAD EMBARK ON
EXCITING LEGACY JOURNEY

DELUXE COLLECTOR’S BOX-SET 1979, AND SPECIAL 40thANNIVERSARY INDIVIDUAL DELUXE REISSUES OF
OVERKILL & BOMBER
TO BE RELEASED ON OCTOBER 25th 2019

PREORDERS PLUS
WATCH A PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED,
LIVE VERSION OF ‘BOMBER’



After several years of planning, Motörhead and BMG are delighted to announce the start of an exciting, extensive and detailed ultra-fan-friendly release programme spanning the band’s career from the 70s, ‘80’s, 90’s, and beyond!

Kicking things off with the ‘Motörhead ‘79’ campaign, it celebrates the 40th Anniversary of the incredible Overkill, and Bomber albums with fantastic new deluxe editions, both as hardbound bookpacks in two CD and triple LP format.

The releases feature previously unheard concerts from the ’79 tours, interviews and many unseen photos. Also, the ’79 campaign will see the release of the spectacular ultimate fan / collectors 1979 Box-Set.

All three of these releases have been created with the full cooperation and involvement of the estates of Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister, “Fast” Eddie Clarke and Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor.

The 1979 Box Set contains:
*Both the original Overkill and Bomber albums half-speed mastered and pressed on 180 gram vinyl created from the original master tapes
*Two double-live albums of previously unheard concert material from the ’79 tours
*A 40-page period-accurate ‘music magazine’ featuring unseen photos and fresh interviews regarding the era
* The Rest of ’79 Vinyl, featuring B-sides, outtakes and rare tracks
* ‘No Class’ 7” single with gatefold art
* The Bomber tour programme
* Overkill sheet music book
* ’79 badge set
* All encased in black biker jacket box

By going through the band’s extensive private archives, to receiving the assistance of key people who were part of their ’79 circle of friends, crew, and accomplices – as well as consulting with super fans – all parties are immensely proud to show the level of detail and commitment which has gone into all three of the ’79 releases, and which will continue with future projects. It was always Lemmy’s demand to give the fans the very best possible in every respect, we believe we have achieved that with these reissues.

A further element of the ’79 box-set release is to offer Motörfans new, old and in-betweenish the full scope and context of how life was when these classics were being created. 1979 was a seismic year for many reasons, and both Overkill and Bomber were written, recorded and toured against a Great Britain dealing with strikes, Margaret Thatcher, football hooliganism plus Buggles and the Bee Gees!

And on the 9th March 1979, millions of unsuspecting viewers tuned into the BBC’s Top Of The Pops to witness the loudest, most raucous, dangerous and downright exciting band on earth perform the title track of their album Overkill.

A hybrid of punk, rock and heavy metal played with relentless, ear-curdling power, Motörhead were a force of nature propelled by bassist & vocalist Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister, guitarist “Fast” Eddie Clarke and drummer Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor.

The alchemy between these three outrageous and utterly immortal men was nothing short of life-changing for millions, and all three shared a wonderful ‘mad band of brothers’ approach to life and music; there was no ‘off’ switch and they became legends as a result. Overkill and Bomber are icons, brain-damagingly brilliant to the nth degree, and their enormous influence still reverberates through all genres of music to this day.

Jim Sullivan's second album. The reissue of his first one, UFO, is amazing. Been hoping this one would surface for years. Also seem to have some 'lost recordings' thing being released which I'm not too bothered by but could be pretty cool nonetheless
