Frankly, it was easy to take them for granted while Lemmy Kilmister was still alive. Last December, the widely beloved Lemmy took his last breath, and people from suits to grits felt its sting. We saw the headlines of shortened sets and postponed gigs but refused to believe what we naturally suspected. This album contains a set list filled with the staples i.
From the opening air sirens and whirling plane propellers setting off "Bomber"if you don't feel at least a twinge in your heart, you never truly loved this band. It's a spirited and rowdy jumpstart to a show one has to suspect was immediately taxing upon Lemmy. The evidence rings as soon as "Stay Clean" starts. You can hear fatigue evident in his vocals, though not in his instrumentation. Feedback peals resound throughout the early portion of the set, which is endearing to a point, and forgivable, considering that in Lemmy was exhaustively pushing himself.
The squeaks to his otherwise calibrated machine resound with the honest grime he and his mates have chewed upon for decades. Nonetheless, the band plays at a high level, including Lemmy 's enormous bass thwacks. The set is measured out instead of sent in a flurry. Phil Campbell continues to make his case as one of the greatest guitarists on the planet. Campbell 's blues solo within this set, tastefully contained to Just Cos You Got The Power - Motörhead - Clean Your Clock exact two minutes, is so poignant it hurts.
Nobody could've interpreted it that way back then, but less than a year later, it haunts as a swan song to his departed comrade. Campbell 's solo not only cuts deep, it spurts blood and tears. Lemmy 's between song banter doesn't betray too much lethargy, particularly when he and Phil Campbell play Just Cos You Got The Power - Motörhead - Clean Your Clock the Munich crowd.
In fact, this seems to give Lemmy a charge after getting the audience to roar before launching into a raucous Pinocchio - Miles Davis - The Columbia Years 1955-1985 of "Over the Top".
Lemmy hilariously pokes at his hollering throng when introducing "Rock It" from the criminally underrated "Another Perfect Day" album by nattering, "Ahh, didn't buy it then, did ya? As he growls through "Orgasmatron"one has to wonder how much discomposure it gave Lemmy to coax those guttural, liquidy rasps.
Worse, did he see his own writing upon the wall that fateful November? The most agonizing moment of the set comes when Lemmy dedicates "Doctor Rock" to Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylorwho had died the week prior to this show, unintentionally summoning his own forthcoming epithet.
God bless Lemmy : despite his own personal toils to get onstage, he belts out "Doctor Rock" from "Orgasmatron" as if it was again. It's appropriate that Mikkey Dee chooses this song from which to drop his drum solo, saluting Taylor with his own brilliant animalistic sprawls and clouts.
Lemmy hollers all over it as he does on "No Class". Lemmy has a discernable rip through the delta shucks of "Whorehouse Blues"and it eases the initial discomfort of having to accept that this live album represents his last stand. This is no fault of Mikkey Deewho pummels it and "Overkill" like the professional he is.
Lemmy sounds winded on "Ace of Spades"but spares no ounce of his bass rhythm, which is what we should take from "Clean Your Clock". It's a final exhibition of a rock 'n' roll legend whose determination to entertain was all but insurmountable. Only until killed by death did this man quit, and we'll never see a performer of Lemmy 's caliber again.
