Motorplasma headlines 33 Golden Street Saturday
"Motorplasma" instantly suggests a drive-through pick-me-up franchise for vampires. Or, if you think about it musically, it's a stylistic combination of the band names Motorhead and The Plasmatics — each of whom shared an overlapping affection for Attitude, Volume and Rock 'n' Roll.
Indeed, Motorplasma IS a band — and they claim their sole mission is to sonically honor the memories of essential Motorhead members "Fast" Eddie Clark, Lemmy and Philthy Animal Taylor along with Plasmatics leader Wendy O. Williams.
So expect nothing less, when Motorplasma plays Saturday in New London's 33 Golden Street, than to have your ears melt like the faces of those Nazi guys in "Raiders of the Lost Ark." It will be loud and brutal and, somewhere, Lemmy and Wendy and Phil will be smiling. (I think Fast Eddie's still with us. WAIT! No, he's dead, too.) Killer Kin and Common Disaster are also on the bill.
Motorplasma, 9 p.m. Saturday, 33 Golden Street, 33 Golden St., New London; $10; (860) 443-1193.
