MOTORKILL (Motorhead tribute)
+ guests tbc
8pm, Christmas Friday 23rd December, Bedford Esquires
On the 28th December 2015 we lost the great Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister frontman of Motorhead leaving the world a much quieter place and less exciting place without him. It’s a fact that we were never going to get Motorhead to play at Bedford Esquires but one year on from his death and as near as we could get a show to the anniversary we will be celebrating some classic music and seeing Christmas in with the loudest & fastest show we could think of with a classic tribute to Motorhead with Motorkill.
Hailing from the mid-west of England, with Seven years’ worth of gigs under their belt, Motorkill are without doubt the finest tribute to Motorhead you could ever wish to see in the UK (and beyond)!
Motorkill pride themselves on being sound-alike and look-alike with all the power of a true Motorhead show in tow. Their four man line-up of the early 90s Motorhead faithfully reproduce current material on a live stage with a twin guitar attack providing the full sound necessary for more recent recordings.
With an arsenal of classics such as Overkill, Bomber, Motorhead, Iron Fist, We Are The Road Crew, Killed by Death, and of course the seminal Ace of Spades, Motorkill will also surprise you with newer tracks such as You Better Run (Blues), In the Name of Tragedy (Metal) and some good old-time Rock and Roll with Please Don’t Touch and Going To Brazil.
Many people would have you believe that Motorhead are just the ‘Ace of Spades’ when really they have been an inspiration for rock musicians and music lovers for over 30 years with 20+ studio albums! The band were their stride again with recent albums like ‘Inferno’ & ‘Kiss of Death’ and the latest opus ‘The World is Yours’ showing the new guns how it’s done only to be stopped in the wake of Lemmy’s untimely death.
If you are new to Motorhead, expect to be entertained; expect it to be Fast, Loud, and Dirty; expect Rock ‘n’ Roll the way it should be played, and possibly you may become the latest Motorheadbanger!
