For Immediate Release:

MOTORHEAD Issues Five-CD, 99-Song Box Set 'STONE DEAF FOREVER!' On October 7th Through METAL-IS/SANCTUARY

Career-Spanning Collection Includes Classics, Rarities, 19 Previously-Unreleased Tracks, 60-Page Booklet, Full-Color Replica Tour Poster & Button

Motorhead is a true original. Ever since vocalist/bassist Lemmy unleashed the British band on the world in 1975, multiple generations of music fans have embraced its one-of-a-kind brand of eardrum-battering, brain-bashing, utterly uncompromising rock 'n' roll. And now Motorhead is finally being honored with a proper box set.

Stone Deaf Forever! is a five-CD, 99-song career-spanning overview set for release on Metal-Is/Sanctuary Records on October 7, 2003. It's the first fully comprehensive box set containing recordings made for multiple record companies during the period 1975-2002. And it's also the first one ever released with full band approval.

The track listing was compiled with input from Motorhead and its fan club. Among the classic hits and rarities are 19 previously unreleased tracks.

The 60-page booklet includes rare and unpublished photos and memorabilia from the Motorhead archives in addition to an in-depth essay by Mick Wall, the noted heavy metal journalist and editor of Classic Rock magazine. Another special treat is the cover artwork, which incorporates a newly commissioned painting by longtime Motorhead artist Joe Petagno.

The Motorhead story has simply become a part of rock 'n' roll lore. It began when former Jimi Hendrix roadie Lemmy (born Ian Kilmister, the son of a vicar) was dismissed from his membership in the space-rock band Hawkwind after being busted in Canada for possession. The last song he wrote for the band was called "Motorhead" and after deciding against his original choice Bastard as the moniker for his new band, he chose Motorhead. Joining Lemmy in the original lineup were guitarist Larry Wallis and drummer Lucas Fox. Soon, Fox left and was replaced by "Philthy" Phil Taylor and guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clarke joined. Wallis left and the famous trio of Lemmy/Taylor/Clarke remained in place until 1982.

With Lemmy's throaty howls leading the way, Motorhead thundered onto the scene with albums like its self-titled debut, Overkill and Bomber and a curious thing happened -- the band was embraced by both heavy metal and punk fans. Considering the division between the legendary British punk scene and the "New Wave of British Heavy Metal" in the late 1970s and early 1980s, it took the power of Motorhead to bring the two worlds together. The album Ace of Spades took Motorhead to even greater heights of creativity and popularity but the legendary 1981 live album No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith pushed everything over the top. The album debuted at # 1 on the British charts.

Clarke left the band in 1982 and was replaced by Brian Robertson, formerly of Thin Lizzy. Robertson himself left a year later and was replaced by Wurzel and Philip Campbell, once again giving Motorhead a two-guitar attack. Taylor soon departed and was replaced by Saxon alumnus Pete Gill. In 1987, Taylor returned to take over for Gill.

Respect for Motorhead manifested itself in a Grammy Award nomination for Best Metal Performance for 1991's acclaimed 1916 album. Through this time period for the band, Lemmy's songwriting had been growing, particularly in songs addressing the horrors of war. By 1992 Taylor had left Motorhead once again, this time to be replaced by former King Diamond skins-basher Mikkey Dee, who joined for March or Die. Wurzel left in 1996 and the current lineup of Lemmy/Campbell/Dee has been the longest-running version of the band, yielding such strong albums as We Are Motorhead and Hammered. Motorhead retains both underground and mainstream appeal. For example, the song "The Game" became the theme song for World Wrestling Entertainment superstar Triple H.

As Motorhead nears its third decade of existence, there are no signs of slowing down. Lemmy and his cohorts are eternal.
