Motörhead Music are to release 'Under Cöver', an album of Motörhead playing cover versions, in September 2017.

The compilation includes an unreleased version of David Bowie's 'Heroes' which was recorded during the 'Bad Magic' sessions in 2015 by Cameron Webb, and was one of the last songs the band recorded together.

Check out the trailer for the album here:



Phil Campbell told us about 'Heroes':

"It's such a great Bowie song, one of his best, and I could only see great things coming out of it from us, and so it proved to be. And Lemmy ended up loving our version."

"He was very, very proud of it,” added Mikkey Dee. "Not only because it turned out so well but because it was fun! Which is what projects like this should be – fun!"





The rest of the album contains loud and proud, raucous and raging rock'n'roll takes on 'the likes of 'God Save The Queen' (Sex Pistols), 'Cat Scratch Fever' (Ted Nugent), 'Shoot 'Em Down' (Twisted Sister), 'Breaking The Law' (Judas Priest) and 'Whiplash' (Metallica), all of which have been previously released other than The Ramones cover 'Rockaway Beach'.

"We were happy with them at the time and we're happy with them now!" affirms Phil, whilst Mikkey says:

"We should remember that it's about having some fun with songs that we all loved."

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
