Motorblog 'The Birthday Party' Out Soon!: have the presumably now 'Official' DVD release of Motorhead's 10th Anniversay Show, filmed on June 26th 1985 at Hammersmith Odeon, with a release date of 21st July 2008.
Only previously available on video or semi-bootleg DVD releases, it seems as if this is the real thing, AT LAST!
Dogged by legal disputes in its day as then manager, Douglas Smith wanted to release it on LP, but the band disagreeing as they believed the video was adequate and an album of the same tracks would be a rip-off, it seems now the time is right for us to finally enjoy this DVD elusive slice of fantastic Motorhead history.
With Iron Fist / Stay Clean / The Hammer / Metropolis / Mean Machine / On The Road / Killed By Death / Ace Of Spades / Steal Your Face / Nothing Up My Sleeve / (We Are) The Road Crew / Bite The Bullet / The Chase Is Better Than The Catch / No Class / Overkill / Bomber and Motorhead; this. along with 'Live In Toronto' has been the band's most sought-after release on DVD; and finally, or so it seems, it is here!
