After recording an album for United Artists that the label shelved, the band released its eponymous debut LP inbut it was with 's Overkill that the band hit their stride. The title track landed in the UK Top 40 and, after appearing again on Top of the Popsthe band returned to the studio that summer with legendary producer Jimmy Miller to record what would become Bomber.
However, the band did not have the opportunity to work up the songs on the road, as they had with their previous album. I wish we'd played the songs onstage first, like we did with the Overkill album, if we could've played them Prudent Lady - Aya Sugimoto - Body & Soul three weeks on the road it would have been less slick Listen to the way we play them live and compare that to the album.
Nonetheless, Bomber would peak at No. During the recording of this album, Sharpshooter - Motörhead - Bomber Miller was increasingly under the influence of heroinat one point disappearing entirely from the studio Home (Serial Diva Coming Home 7) - Eskimos & Egypt - Home being found asleep at the wheel of his car. We used to think that we were bad at being late, but he would be, like, half a day lateor even more late, you know, and his excuses were marvellous.
Overkill was supposed to be something of a comeback album for Jimmy Miller, which is exactly what it turned out to be for him. He had got very heavily into heroin which likely began when he was working with the Stones and he had lost it for a couple of years The band returned to Roundhouse Studios in London with additional recording taking place at Olympic Studios.
This album caught Lemmy at his most ferocious, hitting hard at the police in "Lawman," marriage and how his father left him and his mother in Sharpshooter - Motörhead - Bomber television in "Talking Head" and show business in "All the Aces.
The title track was inspired by Len Deighton 's novel Bomber. On one track, "Step Down," Eddie Clarke is featured on vocals. I got sick of him complaining, so I said, 'Right, you're gonna fucking sing one on this album' Fascinated by military regalia, Lemmy insisted the plane be German because: "The bad guys make all the best shit". Chesterman explains: "I suggested the Heinkel plane.
They wanted this photo-realistic effect, Blues In BB - Various - Jacks Beat Records Anthology 3 I designed the thing with the detached bomb coming towards you.
To get the lighting right, I got a little Airfix kit of a Heinkelmade it up and sprayed it black". He then took photos to get the reflection Sharpshooter - Motörhead - Bomber. Chesterman took the call on the Friday and met up with the band the next day.
Phil had a tin of Special Brew in his hand. The pictures of them in the plane were so small, I needed passport-sized photographs, which I cut out and painted in. I had to get them to snarl and look like they were shooting machine guns. Lemmy is curling his lip up. And Phil just had that expression permanently". The effect was completed by a chrome Snaggletooth on the side of the plane. The single "Bomber" was released on 1 Decemberfive weeks after the album; the single's initial pressing of 20, on blue vinyl was soon sold out and was replaced by black vinyl.
This lighting-rig could move backwards and forwards, and side-to-side — the first to be able to do so. In White Line FeverLemmy calls Bomber "a transitional record" but admits "there are a couple of Sharpshooter - Motörhead - Bomber naff tracks on it, like 'Talking Head.
It wasn't all there". The bonus tracks on the second CD, however, have all previously Sharpshooter - Motörhead - Bomber available.
