ace of spades

Ace Of Spades play their final ever UK show on Saturday night so you have one more chance to catch them before Bass Assassin #2 Alan Davey starts work on the next chapter of his career.

Saturday night's show at Dagenham Roundhouse is dedicated to Motörhead guitarist Fast Eddie Clarke, who very sadly passed away last week. Alan made the following post:

Alan recently signed a ten-year deal with American based Cleopatra Records and now looks set for Stateside success with Gunslinger.

MetalTalk spoke at great length with Alan about the Cleopatra deal, the forthcoming Gunslinger releases and much, much more including some never-before-told stories of his involvement with Motörhead mainman Lemmy. You can find out the whole lot right here.

Saturday's show will be recorded professionally on 24-track for a future release so get yourself there and be on the recording.

The Ace Of Spades set has always been gleaned totally from the Fast Eddie/Philthy Taylor era of Motörhead and Alan says:

"One last time for Lem, Eddie n' Animal."

Ace Of Spades rummer Garry Bowler has played with Wurzel, ex-Iron Maiden and Lionheart guitarist Dennis Stratton and ex-Gillan/Ozzy guitarist Bernie Torme. He was also asked to replace Philthy Animal Taylor after he left Motörhead for the second time and recorded four demo tracks for the 'March Or Die' album.

Guitarist Neil Archer is formerly of Motörheadache and has toured with Chicken Shack and formed a band with Robert Plant for a charity event.

Rich Montgomery commented after the Ace Of Spades Bristol gig last weekend:

"What a superb gig that was and Alan, Neil and Magpie did Lemmy, Eddie and Phil proud last night. Ace Of Spades smashed it and the spirit and music of Motörhead lives on. Brilliant musicianship and a great atmosphere and crowd. Rock'n'roll will never die."

Stuka Squadron were due to support Ace Of Spades on the night but this has now changed, due to unexpected circumstances. Support will now be Satans Empire.
