This album was the landmark of a new direction in this 4/4 frenetic steamroller called Rock N Roll! Sloppy genius is the best description for it. Their loose attitude and image, something between Hell's Angels and Teddy Boys, with skin tight jeans, swastikas and iron crosses, cigarettes and booze, attracted every single fanatic of a music that seemed to died with the coming of the hippies. Little Richard on speed played the bulkiest way you might hear it, even today! United Artists at first signed them and recorded an album that stayed on the vaults until the 1979 ("On Parole") when the heads start making sense and bring money to the companies. The legendary label of Chiswick gave, them and the world the chance that needed and the rest is history! I personally want to thank Ted Caroll for what he ever done for rock n roll with his companies (Ace is one of the few labels around that RESPECT rock n roll!) and especially for saving Motörhead!
The music press hated it but against all squares of this world, sell enough to keep them alive! The first "FUCK YOU" by Lemmy and Co. was an undeniable truth! It came out on the era of punk rock and even though there was a LOT of denial for groups that had long hair (ok here's some misconception...The Ramones or the Dolls had short spikey hair?) punks liked it; cause punk was nothing else but the Second Coming of rock n roll.
Oh!one more thing about Lemmy....More than any other Rock N Roller ever put his foot on this planet, he's the BADDEST MOTHERFUCKER OF THEM ALL!
