WECKÖRHEAD
WECKÖRHEAD
Für Lemmy
(self-financed)
14:35min

For this review, I have to say two or three things in advance. First of all: I fuckin' love MOTÖRHEAD!!! And I sometimes like to watch a show of a good tribute band, especially if they pay their tribute to a legendary band that doesn't exist any longer and won't be resurrected anyway since the main members are not with us anymore. Yet I don't really need any records by tribute bands and in addition, I got pretty bored with all these tribute albums of the last more than twenty years. Thus it is no wonder I wasn't too excited with the idea of a CD EP full of MOTÖRHEAD cover tunes sung in German. But WECKÖRHEAD proved doubting me absolutely wrong with the EP “Für Lemmy”. From the first notes, the four piece from the Osnabrück area provides a performance that both rocks as hell and makes me grin with a kind of devilish joy. The main reason for that grin is because I'm German and understand the lyrics. Sometimes exactly, but at least substantially translated, Wecker (the main man and namesaker of the band) sings the words Lemmy wrote years ago in German. In combination with the dedication of the band, I'm pretty sure that Lemmy, wherever he might listen, would grin as satisfied as me. The songs are beyond any doubt anyway... I mean, what best of compilation of MOTÖRHEAD would be complete without the original versions of 'D-Das Pik As' ('Ace Of Spades'), 'Nach Rio' (my all-time fave 'Going To Brazil'), 'Röck'n'Röll' and 'Am Tod Krepiert' ('Killed By Death', another song I won't live without)? So, if you love the music of Lemmy and like fine tributes, WECKÖRHEAD should be something for you. Check out www.weckoerhead.de or www.facebook.com/weckoerhead, get that EP and don't forget to ask for a vinyl edition.
