In addition to the usual cardboard sleeve, the original LPs were also available in a real leather sleeve which had silver on black artwork, completely reworked by Joe Petagno in much finer detail than the original with various differences such as an iron cross.
There was a cassette version released in a leather pouch with wording mimicking the Government Health Warning often found on a cigarette packet, about the contents being potentially damaging to the health.
They also did a television advert for the album, which featured a brief medley of several songs before Lemmy's voice was heard to declare, "No Remorse The band promoted the album with their No Remorse — Death on the Road tour, conducted between 24 October — 7 November No Remorse is one of those classic albums, no doubt. Considine said:. No Remorse may offer 29 versions of what is essentially the same thing, yet every track is singularly amazing: the yelping, bad luck refrain to "Ace of Spades," the locomotive thunder beneath "Overkill," the live-wire guitar on "Bomber," the genius stupidity of "Killed by Death," or the amphetamine overdrive of the live "Motorhead" from No Sleep 'til Hammersmith.

But the brand survives, and Lemmy lives on in the hearts of everyone. A few days later, the band's long-time manager Todd Singerman told the press that Lemmy had experienced chest pains two days after his 70th birthday party held at Whisky a Go Go and visited into the emergency room, but was released the next day.
However, Singerman was concerned because Lemmy's speech was "getting bad" and took him to a brain scan. On 26 December the doctor came into Lemmy's apartment, "brought the results and told us all that he has two to six months to live". Lemmy reacted calmly. It's bad, and there's nothing anyone can do.
I would be lying to you if I told you there was a chance. A video game console at the Rainbow Bar and Grill that Lemmy loved to play was brought to his apartment. On 28 Decemberhe spent hours on the console, and Rainbow owner Mikael Maglieri paid a visit.
Lemmy died in his sleep later that day. An autopsy Looking For A Play - John Bender - Memories Of Mindless Mechanical Monologues 1976-1985 Kilmister showed that the causes of death were prostate cancer, a cardiac arrhythmia, and congestive heart failure.
Inhe said: "We were not heavy metal. We were a rock 'n' roll band. Still are. Everyone always describes us as heavy metal even when I tell them otherwise. Why won't people listen? They've just got the wrong bit. They think that being fast and loud is the whole thing and it isn't.
The guitar solos are not really difficult for a guitar player, it's just playing scales. To be influenced by something, you're gonna have to play it the same.
The NME stated that their brief solos were just long enough " In view of the many ugly frogs in heavy metal who think they are Ace Of Spades - Motörhead - No Sleep til Hammersmith gift to womankind these Quasimodos even seem charming in their own way".
Lemmy often played power chords in his basslines. When asked about whether he had begun as a rhythm guitarist, he stated:. No, I play a lot of notes, but I also play a lot of chords. And I play a lot of open strings. I just don't play like a bass player. There are complaints about me from time to time. It's not like having a bass player; it's like having a deep guitarist. The fanged face has been referred to variously as "War-Pig"  and "Snaggletooth".
However, this umlaut does not alter the pronunciation of the band's name. When asked if Germans pronounced the band "Motuuuurhead", Lemmy answered "No, they don't. I only put it in there to look mean". Artist Joe Petagno drew it in for the cover of the band's debut album with designer Phil Smee who turned it into a negative and did the lettering to complete the logo having met Lemmy while doing some work with Hawkwind. The inspiration came from just being a naturally pissed-off bastard!
And Lemmy's the same way! So it was bound to be an alchemal wedding of a more "primordial nature". I did a lot of research on skull types and found a cross-breed gorilla-wolf-dog combination La La Limbo - Chubby Checker - The Chubby Checker Discotheque work nicely with some oversized boars horns.

But I grew to love it Phil is wearing a Snaggletooth Muuli - Pariisin Kevät - Musta Laatikko on the cover of Ace of Spades. The cover of "Iron Fist" depicts a metal La Lucertola - Various - Omaggio Al Maestro Ennio Morricone wearing four skull-shaped rings, one of which is Snaggletooth, while the rear of the album-sleeve shows a fully detailed 3-D metal sculpture of the symbol.
Originally the Snaggletooth design included a swastika on one of the helmet's spikes. This was painted out on later re-releases of the albums on CD. On 21 SeptemberPetagno announced that "there will be no more "HEADS" from my hand", citing irreconcilable differences between himself and the band's current management, Singerman Entertainment.
Petagno stated:. It has been a long, exciting and industrious journey, full of art and intuition, difference in repetition, and creative innovation. I feel I Ace Of Spades - Motörhead - No Sleep til Hammersmith something unique in Metal history over the last 31 years by breathing life again and again into a figment of my own imagination, an image or better an entity which has taken on a life of its own, which I actually believe goes beyond Ace Of Spades - Motörhead - No Sleep til Hammersmith music it was created to represent.
I'm damn proud of that! As many of you know, we have been working with Joe Petagno for 31 years. We always treated Joe fairly, and I would like to stress that at no time did my manager demand what Joe thinks he demanded — it is all a colossal misunderstanding.
We have always loved his artwork, obviously, and if he now decides to stop working with us, we have no choice but to use someone else. If Joe continues with us, no one would be more delighted than me. If it's goodbye, Joe, I wish you well, but I hope, even at this stage, to be reconciled and continue our association. Echo Awards.
