Now generally everyone likes the Vic Maille produced stuff don't they. I certainly can't blame them. However and unlikely as it might seem the best album is really Orgasmatron. Yep, horrible title and worse still it is produced by Bill Laswell. Who did equally great Big Rock things on PiL's Album.

Phil "Philthy Animal" Tailor isn't even on it, but still, Laswell pays  a lot of attention to the drums, they more or less lead certain tracks and in a sense that bears fidelity to Motorhead's earlier relationship with Hawkwind as a kind of cosmic/tribal drumptrippers.

In fact, just to jump back to Overkill for the moment, I suggest to you that it is in fact the "I Feel Love" of  Biker Rock.


And let's be honest Orgasmatron is SUCH a disco-y title innit.

I never thought Orgasmatron was the lackluster album that a lot of people made it out to be. And I say that as someone who has a largely negative opinion of Bill Laswell as a producer.

Maybe its reputation has grown with time! seems unlikely though innit, it is Motorhead after all.
