The Damned and The BossHoss have been confirmed as the special guests for Motorhead’s UK shows in November.

The Damned + Ruts DC – The Tivoli, Buckley, 01/12/2013
Captain Sensible

Motorhead, The Damned and The BossHoss play the O2 Apollo Manchester on 4th November, Birmingham NIA on 6th November and London’s SSE Wembley Arena on 8th November.

The tour led The Damned’s Captain Sensible to exclaim. ‘It’s gonna be fun gigging with that old charmer Lemmy…. he was the only one who gave the ’77 punk generation the time of day, as long as you didn’t nick his pint while he was feeding the fruit machine. We’re chums… done lots of stupid stuff together, even made a record – ‘MotorDamn’, where the session was held up for a while by an almighty punch up if I remember correctly. Nice to be working with the old bastard again.’

While opening the proceedings are The BossHoss. The BossHoss have long since established themselves as one of the most innovative and compelling live acts in the European live music-landscape.

The seven piece BossHoss over nine years have refined their crossover recipe of Country, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Hip-Hop, Rock, Pop, Metal, Blues, Punk and Funk into a homogenous, even blend of old-school meets new-school and they continue to wreak mayhem with each performance. The soul of the music itself, might remind you of an encounter between Johnny Cash and Elvis on the eve of the apocalypse. check out a live video for their single

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
