Motörhead – The Artist

Motörhead were an English rock band formed in June 1975 by bassist, singer, and songwriter Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister, who was the sole constant member, guitarist Larry Wallis and drummer Lucas Fox. The band are often considered a precursor to the new wave of British heavy metal, which re-energised heavy metal in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Though several guitarists and drummers have played in Motörhead, most of their best-selling albums and singles feature the work of Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor on drums and “Fast” Eddie Clarke on guitars. Motörhead released 22 studio albums, 10 live recordings, 12 compilation albums, and five EPs over a career spanning 40 years. Usually a power trio, they had particular success in the early 1980s with several successful singles in the UK Top 40 chart. The albums Overkill, Bomber, Ace of Spades, and particularly the live album No Sleep ’til Hammersmith cemented Motörhead’s reputation as a top-tier rock band. The band have sold more than 15 million albums worldwide.

Ace of Spades – The Song

‘Ace of Spades’ is a song by Heavy Metal band Motörhead and written by Kilminster, Clarke and Taylor. It was taken from their fourth studio album of the same name and was released just before the album in 1982, also on Bronze Records. It is probably Motörheads best known song and is considered the definitive Motörhead anthem. Ace of Spades spent 13 weeks in the UK Singles Chart, and originally peaked at number 15 upon its initial release and consisted of a pounding bass line and gambling metaphors about cards and dice. Though apparently “Lemmy” was more into one-armed bandits than card games.
