Never saw Motorhead play live.  Did see Lemmy in the audience at the Marquee Club for a Lee Aaron gig in 1990

You missed out. I don't have any of their records but live they were a force of nature. Brilliant.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

One of my Tenuous Claims to Fame is having been elbowed out of the way at the bar in Dingwalls by a thirsty Lemmy intent on obtaining further supplies of drinkohol for himself and Wilko Johnson at a Deviants reunion gig.

Today's band is Beast in Black.  They were support for Nightwish on their Decades tour at Wembley Arena.  They came on to Judas Priest's Nightcrawler and launched into that era heavy metal.  Naff riffs.  Naff songs.  Except the lead singer Yannis Papadopolous is a trained opera singer rather than just a wannabe, they nailed all the riffs, and it just somehow sort of works.

It's a grower this. 1999 album from band led by Mick Head, former Pale Fountains front man, and his brother John. I'd never come across it before. Great songwriting really authentic and raw. Thought it was a bit hackneyed first time thro...but keep coming back to Streets of Kenny, Comedy, Cornish Town and others yep... a keeper.

Exile on Main Street - again.

It just gets better every time.

Lots of SCALA radio (my daughter's fault).  It's generally a nice mix, but a little heavy on showtunes and classic covers of fuckingcoldplay.

He (and his brother) were also in Iggy's post-Stooges band for a while.

Steel Panther

Its ironic when a band satirizing hair metal bands are actually better than most of the original bands.

Aye, I think that's where Bowie met them in the first place.

A CD reissue of the Moody Blues' On The Threshold of A Dream.  I think the last time I listened to this was when I was 17 and sharing a house with a massive Moodies fan. 

Of course, a lot of it hasn't aged well, particularly the 'poems' but what is most striking about this, and a couple of their other albums from that period, is how much more interesting the songs written by Mike Pinder are than the more well-known Justin Hayward and John Lodge offerings.  This CD contains a bunch of alternative takes of songs from the album, including a complete version of his Have You Heard, which has to be one of the most gorgeous songs in the band's whole back catalogue.  (On the original album, it was split into two parts, with a rather overblown instrumental piece dividing them.)

Why should anybody steal a watch when they can steal a bicycle?

Bourbon House - Wild Abandon

Nothing to do with the family well connected amongst crowned heads of Europe but something far more down to earth.  Has a sense of a band experimenting with their boundaries and encourages me to hope that they will continue to do so.

Mrs Pcolbeck has had radio 2 on all day and they have played Katie Melua's new single A Love Like That several times.
I'm not a big fan of Ms Melua's oeuvre but  I like this, it;s got a bit of a Zero 7 vibe to it.
