Ok,Thats the situation here: Snow is everywhere,cloudy days and cold winternights and booze to keep you warm, Christmas is on the way but their spirit can't get me,(not Xmass-ed yet!) so lets loose and put something you don't expect: Keeping it formal in seven inches but something different to the usual crust/hardcore/whatever punk you have seen here...but i guess there is noone out there who doesn't like Motorhead.Is there anyone?
Iron Fist was the first Motorhead record i ever had, it was back in mid 80's my metal years:Iron Maiden,Judas Priest,Twisted Sister,Slayer,Metallica etc and i had no any relation with punk or hardcore, furthermore didn't know anything about "crust". So when i first heard it i didn't like this punk-ish metal and this dirty sound, so i put the record in the back places of my collection but a few years latter came the time when my music universe came upside down and Motorhead took the place they deserved in the top of my faves.
Iron fist(lp) was the last Motorhead record with Fast Eddie handling guitar duties and because of some problems inside the band is not highly regarded by Lemmy and the rest Motorhead,but not for the fans who consider this as another legendary record the old glorious days. The Iron Fist posted here is a single consisting the eponymous track and Remember me i'm gone, it was released by Bronze in spring of 1982 in blue and red vinyl and was produced by Will Reid-Dick and Eddie Clarke.
"Remember me i m gone" on b-side appears as bonus track in the 2001 cd version along with alternative versions of some original tracks, it also appears in the CD package of Iron Fist (2o05,Sanctuary).
