MotÃ¶rhead /'mo?t?rh?d/ are an English rock band formed in June 1975 by bassist, singer, and songwriter Ian Fraser Kilmister, professionally known by his stage name Lemmy, who has remained the sole constant member. The band are often considered a precursor to, or one of the earliest members of, the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, which re-energized heavy metal in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Despite this, Lemmy has always dubbed their music as simply "rock and roll". Wilko Johnson organised a charity event on 18 February 1978 at The Roundhouse to raise money to help preserve some William Wordsworth manuscripts. The Count Bishops and MotÃ¶rhead were also on the bill, but for contractual reasons MotÃ¶rhead needed to perform under another name. Lemmy came up with the name Iron Fist and the Hordes from Hell, part of which would later be used for the name of a studio album. During this performance Mick Farren joined them onstage for a version of "Lost Johnny". Chiswick Records boss Ted Carroll organised the Rolling Stones mobile truck to record the event, and later released the album through his Big Beat Records label in 1983 (NED 2). Since then it has been re-released with other titles and/or other sleeves, amongst others as "The Watcher" in Canada, "City Kids", "Live, Loud and Lewd" and "Iron Fist and the Hordes from Hell"
