After the exit of two founding members--guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clarke and drummer Phil Taylor--many metalheads left the once-mighty Motorhead for dead. The band's fortunes had dwindled due to a few less-than-enthusiastically received albums. But bassist/frontman Lemmy refused to let the band roll over and die, assembling a whole new line-up, changing record labels, and issuing their first new album in three years--1986's ORGASMATRON, titled after a device from the early-'70s Woody Allen movie "Sleeper."
It's a splendid return to form. As the cover artwork suggests, Motorhead had come roaring back--a new dual guitar set-up, featuring newcomers Wurzel and Phil Campbell, adds spark to such meaty cuts as the title track, "Ridin' with the Driver," and "Built for Speed."
