It might no work out so cheap for USA folks with the dollar like it is but then again, when I was there I paid $12 for some singles that were imports so maybe it isn’t so bad? Anyway, check it out…

Can’t remember where this came from or how I even ended up with it. I am guessing SOUNDS was a music magazine of sorts back in the 80’s. Can someone shed some light on this for me? I don’t have any magazine called SOUNDS and I have no clue how this ended up in my records but I have it and it’s pretty cool. Four great bands all together on some strange compilation 7”. Nice!
This is one of the greatest Motorhead tunes of all time. I wish they’d play it live some day. Would love to see / hear this song in the live setting. That solo is a total shredder and I think this song is about as romantic as Motorhead ever got.
Still can’t believe it, can’t stand to leave it
But I know the rules
We were doomed babe, too much too soon babe
Acting like fools
Tried to fly and climbed too high
We saw it all, we had to fall
But I swear it’s true, was all for you
I swear it’s true, was all for you
Making love all the time,
Never let the day go by, or a night
Sweet music in the dark
You always found the spark to light my light
The only one babe, to ever break my heart
Was you, such a shame,
Though guys never cry, but that’ll be the day I die,
Speaking your name
I was super stoked when I found this EP back in the day. It was like $3 and was at a record fair back in like 1988. Was a happy Damoface.
For those that haven’t seen it, here’s what the poster looks like that came with Motorhead’s Orgasmatron LP when it was released.
Found this at the post office while picking up today’s record delivery. Nice! I know it’s heaps old now but still, I needed this :)
