View Full Version : Motorhead: Boneshaker DVD
07-13-2005, 10:44 AM
Just wondering if anybody has any thoughts on this one. I know Denise has it in that colossal metal dvd collection. I've read a lot of reviews and everybody seems to either love it ('cause it's motorhead dammit) or hate it (because of guest appearances and quick edits.) Worth picking up?

I've got it and I thought it was a pretty good release. Yeah, some of the editing is a bit much and the guest appearances are a bit much at times but like you said, it's Motorhead, dammit. It's a really good performance and the sound mix on the DVD is pretty decent too. I found it used for $10 and it was well worth it.

Ian pretty much nailed it - good but has some flaws. I have the original German press that came w/a bonus cd, but thats worthless now since SPV in Europe released the audio on an unedited 2cd set (the original bonus cd was cut to 1cd).
The best MOTORHEAD dvd is the ACE OF SPADES "classic albums" release, imo. Obviously, much narrower in focus and not a traditional "live" dvd, it's really good and a must for anyone into the Fast Eddie/Philthy Phil era.

The Motorhead DVD Single is solid too, as it's got the video for Please Don't Touch with Girl School on it, wherein we're treated to 'dancin' Phil!'

It's a MUST OWN!
Yeah, I could carp on the main concert's shortcommings...BUT, It's got a tasty documentary, music videos ( including them playing GOD SAVE THE QUEEN whilst riding on a double decker bus through London!) ans some bonus live cuts from some other concert. A lot of ( head) BANG for the BUCK!
Plus, a SWEEEET Menu! :D

The menus are a bit confusing, pressing one of the options and you only get the wiggling ass. :p
The editing is quite frankly appalling, I know they're only a trio but this is ridiculous, no need to show Dee all the time (who isn't the frontman). It's still a good purchase. Always good to see Eddie again, and Queen's Brian May obviously loves to mingle with men of heavy rock (he produced the metal spoof Bad News, played on the Armenia Aid charity recording of "Smoke On The Water" with other rockers, and the late Cozy Powell was in his solo outing), for that he deserves great respect.

Thanks for the input everybody. I'll probably pick this up. I see a new Motorhead 2-disc release called Stage Fright is out from SPV this month. Says it's NTSC as well as PAL but no North American online retailer seems to mention it. Maybe it's a euro only release for now...

That new 2-disc is out July 18. The first disc features a complete show filmed in Germany last year, while the second one has interviews and behind-the-scenes footage. Apparently the concert was filmed with 23 cameras - BONESHAKER had only 8 ! :eek:

It's been a while since I watched this but yeah, it took me about 30 minutes to figure out the menus and find all the stuff on the disc.
But hey, it's MOTORHEAD, damnit!
I'll be getting STAGE FRIGHT too!
