Because it’s nice to hear a band spead out against unfair pricing for their fans, here’s their press release:
MOTÖRHEAD, the hardest working, hardest touring band in the world, loves when fans buy their records, but not this time. A new box set, called Complete Early Years Box Set, has just come out by the company who has the rights to the band’s early recordings, and they are charging over $600 for it!
“Unfortunately greed once again rears its yapping head,” says iconic frontman Lemmy Kilmister. “I would advise against it even for the most rabid completists!”
Motörhead have no control over what’s done with these early songs, and don’t want fans to think that the band is involved in putting out such a costly box set.
Motörhead do have a great new record and DVD out, (CD is The Wörld Is Yours and DVD is The Wörld Is Ours-Vol 1 – Everywhere Further Than Everyplace Else), and the band hopes fans will choose these new releases over this outrageously expensive box set.
