Several years ago, Motörhead, together with their label UDR Music formed their own label called Motörhead Music. Lemmy and the boys were concerned about where the support was for rock’n’roll bands trying to get a leg up, so they decided forming their own label would be the way to help. They wanted bands to have access to everything they enjoyed, from production to studios to marketing to distribution.
They even wanted their management, Singerman Entertainment, and their booking agents to be involved in helping talent get a chance to shine in the public eye. In 2014, the band finally chose a few bands to support, with Lemmy insistent that Budderside and Others be on the inaugural Motörboat and that Barb Wire Dolls also receive the full support of Motörhead Music and its staff. Now all three will lead the charge for Motörhead Music in 2016.
This isn’t some fancy bullshit vanity label, and it never was. This is Motörhead Music and it will continue to follow the mission statement as laid down by Lemmy and the boys. So if you want to support raw, exciting rock’n’roll, punk and whatever music is on the label, come one, come all.
Motorhead’s Clean Your Clock will be released in Australia on June 10 via UDR Music/Warner Music Australia.
