Motörhead: Loving Them Like Reptiles

Richard Riegel, Creem, June 1985

MOTÖRHEAD ARE so fucking LOUD my ears are already bolting for the door so they can hop a bus and flee home to the security of my low-watted stereo! And it's only the first verse of the first song! So this is that "total undifferentiated roar" I've always bragged up when I praise the MC5's Kick Out The JamsLife's really kicking art's ass now as Motörhead gives me a cochlear implant of two dozen Marshalls!

Total word count of piece: 1280
