Unfortunately, he's not a producer — he's a guitarist, and given that the band wasn't even ready to make an album Lemmy says at least three songs were written in the studiohe was guaranteed not to be up to the task.
The album was released in April ; two days into the subsequent tour, on May 14, Clarke left the band. They'd been together for two years already, playing to no one and getting the cold shoulder from labels United Artists paid for a recording session inbut shelved the results and the press.
They were on the brink of disbanding when Chiswick Records agreed to put The Swing - Born To Lose - The Dreams Of Kids (Vinyl the money for a single. Lemmy, guitarist Fast Eddie Clarke, and drummer Philthy Animal Taylor entered the studio armed with a set of songs they'd been playing live for a year, and promptly blasted through them all.
By the time label head Ted Carroll came down to hear what they'd got, they had 11 songs to play for him. He was impressed enough to give them the money to finish the disc. The album is kind of a mishmash, stylistically and otherwise. Clarke is granted a lot more space for guitar solos than he would be on subsequent releases, and Taylor's drumming is loose, but not as wild as it would become. This live album actually hit 1 on the UK charts.
And that fact only becomes more shocking when you actually listen to the thing. Recorded on tour in support of their breakthrough studio release, 's Ace Of Spadesit's tight but extremely raw-sounding. The version of "Motorhead" that ends the album — which Lemmy introduces simply by saying "Just in case" — features a bass sound so blown-out it's like your speakers have exploded, and are about to take your ears with them.
There are a few bits of goofiness Lemmy's always had a sharp sense of humorand a slow song or two — "Metropolis" offers a chance to stop headbanging and maybe have a drink. But overall, it's one of the few live albums that really makes you feel like you're in a packed, sweaty barn watching three men crank up some of the loudest rock 'n' roll ever played.
This is the only one chosen for this countdown, because honestly, this one included, they're all kind of superfluous. This album is probably most notable for its closing title track, which the band performs live on a regular basis. The opening "See Me Burning" kicks off with a Mikkey Dee drum avalanche, which is never a bad idea, and the song proper is a rumbling assault along the lines of "Sacrifice. Unfortunately, the album starts to slide sideways right around then, and never fully recovers.
Brief digression: The Sex Pistols were the Monkees of punk, invented by a shopkeeper to help his fashion designer girlfriend sell T-shirts. That's not the album's worst track, though. A morose, nearly seven-minute acoustic breakup ballad, it's pretty much the opposite of anything you'd ever want to hear from Lemmy and company, and it drags the album's second half to a screeching halt.
They chose not to replace him, and they've stuck with a three-piece lineup of Lemmy, Phil, and Mikkey Dee from then until now. The production emphasizes heaviness, to the music's detriment. The two guitars are mixed into a scuzzy wall of noise, and Lemmy's bass is an unpleasant buzz rather than the skull-vibrating roar it ought to be. The player who comes off the best is Mikkey Dee.
They left their Album) label, Bronze, ending their contract there with the awesome double-disc best-of, No Remorsebut no other label seemed interested in picking them up. MCA passed. Epic passed. CBS passed. Chrysalis passed. Everyone passed. And while there are some really good songs on it, notably "Deaf Forever," "Mean Machine," "Ain't My Crime," and the immortal title track, the actual sound Album) the record is bizarre.
Listening to one of his rock productions, you always get the feeling that if it was coming through speakers the size of bank vault doors, it would probably sound amazing, but on headphones or a normal stereo, it sounds weak and tinny.
There are also weird moments of sonic crudity, like when everything but the drums drops out on "Claw" and the drums themselves sound pasted in, suddenly twice as loud as they were just a second ago. Still, the song "Orgasmatron" itself is so totally crushing that this album remains an essential, if less than perfect, listen. Indeed, the major label connection and the associated PR push is likely what got the band their first-ever Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance, though they lost to Metallica.
A mixed The Swing - Born To Lose - The Dreams Of Kids (Vinyl with some surprising stylistic departures, is an interesting album, if not a wholly successful one.
The main thing that's got to be discussed is the title track, a morose ballad that closes the disc. Built around acoustic guitar and somber keyboards, Lemmy croons! S," a tribute to his friends and peers. Note that most of those come early in the disc's first half; starts strong, but peters out toward the end. Their longest break was between 's Rock 'N' Roll and 'sduring which time they were switching labels and suing the one they were leaving. He'd been a diabetic for years, managing to keep a mids coma out of the press, but in summer he was hit by a string of health crises all in a row.
