Motörheadache is a three-piece tribute to Lemmy’s musical career with Motörhead from 1975 to 2015 but features some his solo projects with the likes of Foo Fighters and Slash. Set up by lifelong Motörhead fan Rob Campbell on Rickenbacker bass and vocal, the line-up features Neil Archer on guitar and Nic Rudd on drums.
Motörheadache has previously toured the UK extensively, playing over 700 venues as well as gigs in Germany, Holland and Belgium. Motörheadache is embarking on its new UK tour from 6th February 2016 playing a number of large summer festivals including Festwich in Manchester in front of up to 10,000 people, a sold out Motörhead & Lemmy Tribute day in Lemmy’s birth town of Burslem and lots of gigs across the UK from Aberdeen to Plymouth.
The main body of the Motörheadache’s set list comprises a large number of songs from Motörhead’s Fast Eddie Clarke era, regarded by many Motörheadbangers as the classic era from 1975 to 1982. Songs include “Ace of Spades”, “Bomber”, “Overkill”, “Iron Fist”, “The Hammer”, “The Chase is better than the Catch” and, of course, the bombastic “Motörhead” – the last of Lemmy’s songs for Hawkwind and the one that gave his new band its name.
Motörheadache also features a range of other material written by Motörhead from 1983 through to 2015. From Brian Robertson’s short stint in1983 to the re-launch in 1984 of Motörhead as a four piece with Wurzel and Phil Campbell on guitars and finally, the longstanding Lemmy, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee era from 1995 to 2015.
Songs from this period include “Killed by Death”, “In the Name of Tragedy”, “Sacrifice”, “Death or Glory” and “Burner”. Motörheadache also performs “Thunder and Lightning” from Motörhead’s last studio outing, “Bad Magic” – a song that Lemmy and Motörhead never got the chance to play live in the UK with the cancellation of their 2016 UK tour.
Motörheadache is proud to help keep alive the music of Motörhead by playing gigs all over the UK and inviting Motörheadbangers to celebrate the life and work of a rock icon and legend, Mr Lemmy Kilmister.
