Lemmy Kilmister, frontman of Mötorhead, left a sizable void in the hard-rock world when he succumbed to his battle with cancer last December at the age of 70. Mötorhead fans, however, might have something to cheer about, as two of the band's final performances were professionally recorded, and will soon be available as the live-album Clean Your Clock.
Consequence of Sound notes that just over a month before Lemmy's death, Mötorhead performed two shows in Munich, Germany, both of which happened to be recorded. These raucous gigs saw the band play songs like "Ace of Spades" and "Overkill" in addition to 18 other tunes that will appear on Clean Your Clock when it releases May 27.
German label UDR is releasing the record and is talking a big game about its sonic quality, calling it an “indomitable cocktail of power, purpose and head-crunching volume.” Knowing Mötorhead, the world should expect nothing less, and be very psyched.
