“Motorhead” was released as the A-side to a 7″ single (Flicknife Records, FLS205, 2-July-1981), this time having a Brock vocal and synthesizer overdubs. The original backing tracks were taken by Brock from this Olympic Studio session, and he later added overdubs and released them through an independent record companies.
this 7″ is called “valium ten” even though the a side is an updated version of motorhead. the updates being Lemmy is absent. dave brocks vocals and his extra synth lines makes this version sound way more spaced out than the version they recorded when Lemmy was in the band. valium ten is about being addicted to pills while Satan plays a slide whistle and a theremin in your skull. or something. flicknife og from 1981
