A couple of mindboggling bellringers in the Netherlands had a totally
insane idea. Why not play MOTÖRHEAD classic ACE OF SPADES on an
antique pipe organ?
Musician and organ player Frank Steijns performed it as part the of the
2021 Tower Festival in Weert, south-eastern Netherlands, accompanied
by his riff-roaring guitar friend Jitse Zonneveld.
Motörhead reacted/shared on Twitter: “Here’s one we really like. Enjoy!”
I wonder if God and his
son Jesus are fans…
The flabbergasting original…

30 October 2020
Band: MOTÖRHEAD (London)
Album: ACE OF SPADES – fourth LP
Released: 30 October 1980 – 40 years ago today
Score: #4 in the UK
AllMusic/Jason Birchmeier wrote: “‘Ace of Spades’ was Motörhead’s third great album in a row, following the 1979 releases of ‘Overkill’ and ‘Bomber’, respectively… The singular sound (still loud and in your face, rest assured), along with the exceptionally strong songwriting and the legendary stature of the title track, makes Ace of Spades the ideal Motörhead album if one were to choose one and only one studio album. It’s highly debatable whether Ace of Spades is tops over the breakthrough Overkill, as the latter is more landmark because of its earlier release, and is somewhat rougher around the edges, too. Either way, Ace of Spades rightly deserves its legacy as a classic. There’s no debating that.” Score: 4.5/5.
Lemmy: “I don’t really have the voice for love songs, do I?”
Turn Up The Volume: Sex, drugs, whisky, speedy
metal, and Lemmy. Winning combination.
The one and only single off the album, the classic ass-kicking title track…
