Dec. 16 — Motorhead fans have a new way to take in the band’s live history.
Fast & Loose: Snapshots From The Graham Mitchell Archive, 1977-1982 was recently released for American readers through BMG. The book is scheduled for release Dec. 30 in the United Kingdom. A trailer for the book is streaming here.
Mitchell offered the following comment on the retrospective:
“I somehow knew how important it all was,” he said. “I knew I needed to capture at least some of those moments. I’d see the band to the stage and then immediately go out into the house, jostle with the punters, and get what I could.”
Added Mitchell, “Most of my images “are one-shot photos, and there’s no flash on any of them. They were done at 400 ASA to speed up the film and take advantage of whatever natural light I could get, so I was always flying by the seat of my pants whenever I clicked the shutter.”
