MOTORHEAD

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Motörhead / ˈmoʊtərhɛd/ 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 the New Wave of British Heavy Metal.

 

The albums Overkill, Bomber, Ace of Spades, and particularly No Sleep 'til Hammersmith, cemented Motörhead's reputation as a rock band. As of 2012, they have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. To date, Motörhead have released over twenty studio albums!

 

Motörhead's lyrics typically cover such topics as war, good versus evil, abuse of power, sex, substance abuse, and gambling.

 

1916 was their 9th album which was released in 1991. The title track is a reflection on WWI killings. Uncharacteristically, it is a ballad. The Album reached number 24 in UK charts. It was nominated for the Grammy Awards for best metal performance at the 1992 Grammys.

THE POGUES

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Pogues are a Celtic punk rock band from London, formed in 1982 and fronted by Shane MacGowan. The band reached international prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s.

They broke up in 1996. However, the band reformed in late 2001.

Their music uses traditional Irish instruments (such as the tin whistle, cittern, mandolin and accordion).

Some of their well-known songs are “Sally Mc Lennane”, “Dirty Old Town” or “The Irish Rover”.

 

The song “And the band played Waltzing Mathilda” was written by Scottish-born Australian singer-songwritter Eric Bogle in 1971. It includes the melody and a few lines from “Waltzing Mathilda” which is an unofficial Australian Anthem. (It is also the name of the blanke tthat rovers carried around).

The song is the account of the memories of an old Australian who had been recruited into the Australian Army Corps in 1915 and sent to the battle of Gallipoli.

 

 

When I was a …........... man I carried my …...........

And I lived the …........ …..........of a rover

From the Murrays green basin to the dusty …............

I waltzed my Matilda all over

Then in …............ …............... my country said Son

It's …......... to stop rambling 'cause there's work to be done

So they gave me a tin hat and they gave me a …........

And they sent me away to the ….....

And the …...... played Waltzing Matilda

As we …......... ….......... from the quay

And amidst all the …....... and the shouts and the cheers

We sailed off to Gallipoli

 

How well I …............... that terrible day

How the blood stained the …............and the …........

And how in that …....... that they called Suvla Bay

We were butchered like lambs at the ….............

Johnny Turk he was ready, he primed himself well

He chased us with …........, he rained us with shells

And in …......... …........... flat he'd blown us all to hell

Nearly blew us right back to …...............

But the …...... played Waltzing Matilda

As we …............to bury our slain

We …........... ours and the Turks …............ theirs

Then we …...........all over again

 

Now those that were left, well we tried to …............

In a mad world of blood, death and ….........

And for ten weary ….......... I kept myself alive

But around me the …........... piled higher

Then a big Turkish shell …......... me arse over tit

And when I woke up in my ….............. ….............

And saw what it had done, I wished I was ….........

Never …........ there were worse things than dying

For no more I'll go waltzing Matilda

All around the green …........... far and near

For to hump tent and pegs, a man needs two ….........

No more waltzing Matilda for me

 

So they ….............. the cripples, the wounded, the maimed

And they …................ us back home to Australia

The armless, the legless, the blind, the …...........

Those proud wounded …........... of Suvla

And as our ship pulled into Circular Quay

I looked at the …........ where my legs used to be

And thank Christ there was …............ waiting for me

To grieve and to mourn and to ….........

And the band played Waltzing Matilda

As they carried us down the …..............

But nobody cheered, they just stood and ….............

Then ….......... all their faces away

 

And now every April I sit on my …..........

And I …........ the parade pass before me

And I watch my old comrades, how proudly they …..........

Reliving old ….......... of past glory

And the old men march …..........., all bent, stiff and sore

The forgotten heroes from a …............. …............

And the young people ask, " …..........are they marching ….....?"

And I ask myself the same ….............

And the …........ plays Waltzing Matilda

And the old men …........... to the call

But year after year their …........... get fewer

Some day …...... …......... will march there at all

 

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda

Who'll go a waltzing Matilda with me

And their ….......... may be heard as you pass the Billabong

Who'll go a waltzing Matilda with me?

The Pogues

THE ZOMBIES

The Zombies were an English pop/rock band, formed in 1962 in St Albans (Hertfordshire). The group was led by Rod Argent (piano, organ and vocals) and Colin Blunstone (vocals). The group scored British and American hits in 1964 with "She's Not There". In the US, two further singles, "Tell Her No" and, in 1969, "Time of the Season", were also successful.

Recently, the song “She's not there” has been used in the advert for “Coco Mademoiselle”.

 

“Butcher's Tale”(Western Front 1914) is a song written by Chris White . It was first released on their 1968 album Odessey and Oracle.

 

The lyrics are based on World War I. They tell of a battle from the viewpoint of a soldier
