Saw 'em in Cambridge lat night, and they rocked!  (Of course :))

Quite a queue to get in when the doors opened at 7.30, but opting for a swift half at a nearby watering hole turned out to have been a mistake, since Girlschool must have started their set almost before the first punter got through the gate!  When I headed into the venue at 8pm, they had almost finished their set, which sucked since though they're more Grannyschool than Girlschool these days ;) I've seen them a few times before and they are an excellent rock band. At but at least the few songs I heard sounded excellent.  

In Flames were the advertised support act, but though I'd heard good things about them, I didn't really get into it.  Kinda hard to catch the vibe of a loud metal act who's songs you don't know in a venue that is   basically a barn, I guess!

Motorhead at last appeared after a break that was almost as long as Girlschool's whole set, and of course rocked like all get out!  Things were pretty energetic down at the front :).  The band ripped it up with a good mix of songs from their (obviously) very long career and seemed to be having a good time, Lemmy gurning away and grinning at Phil (who by now is looking not quite as haggard as Lemmy, but getting up there ;).  I was kind of disappointed there were no guest appearances from Girlschool members, but hey .....

My ears may stop ringing by the time they're next in town  :twisted:. Go see them if they come to yours!
"Lords of rock ... grace us with your mighty love ...."

The amazing Phil
