Motör­head Meet the Phan­toM Flan Flinger

Classic Rock - - The Dirt -

Motör­head made two ap­pear­ances on Top Of The Pops to pro­mote Ace Of Spades, but it was their stint on an­ar­chic kids’ TV show Tiswas that was most mem­o­rable.

“Tiswas was re­ally fuck­ing funny,” says Ed­die. “All the bands used to love do­ing that show. We were do­ing an in­ter­view with Sally James and she says, ‘Oh look, there’s some­body over there knows you.’ Me and Lemmy turn around like c**ts, and of course [black-masked, cus­tard-pie-tot­ing char­ac­ter] the

Phan­tom Flan Flinger fuck­ing does us both.”

That wasn’t the end of the chaos, as the band joined the show’s reg­u­lars to tell jokes to the cam­era while be­ing drenched with buck­ets of wa­ter. “That was such a fuck­ing laugh,” says Clarke. “Even though we’d nor­mally end up punch­ing the c**ts.”
