Info:
Thank metal is a boys club? Always has been and always will be? Think again, Girlschool has been rocking faces off just as hard as any metal band since the 70′s. Friends with Motorhead so you know they’ve got to have some class and being from the UK 30 years ago, you most likely guessed they were one of the bands that helped metal make it’s roots take hold. Like many bands that have been around for this long they’ve had a rotating cast of members, and one death in the band (Kelly Johnson), but they’ve still managed to keep it together and have released material as recently as 2008.

Info:
Frankie Stubbs is the closest thing you’re going to get to a punk rock Lemmy, unless of course you’re talking about Lemmy himself. Leatherface is also draws some parallels with Motorhead, they both seem to draw heavily on rock n roll but add their own spin on it. They’ve done a split with Hot Water Music, which was a perfect ‘raspy vocals’ pairing. They’ve been going strong for over 20 years now and I’m hoping they don’t stop anytime soon.

REVIEW: White Line Fever

Leave a comment

Want to know about the man, the myth the legend? The greatest Englishman to ever live, the driving force behind one of the greatest bands of all time, Motorhead – Lemmy Kilmister? Pick up ‘White Line Fever’ and you will know who Lemmy really is. Written by Lemmy himself we’ve got 320 pages of pure greatness from the man who lives, drinks and smokes Rock n Roll. From the time he met his Dad for the first time and walked away, to riding the rails as a teenager, to being a roadie for Jimmy Hendrix to getting into music (and drugs) himself, this book has it all. If you like Motorhead I cannot recommend reading this one enough.
