The tour led The Damned’s Captain Sensible to exclaim "It's gonna be fun gigging with that old charmer Lemmy. He was the only one who gave the '77 punk generation the time of day, as long as you didn't nick his pint while he was feeding the fruit machine. We're chums! Done lots of stupid stuff together, even made a record - 'MotorDamn', where the session was held up for a while by an almighty punch up if I remember correctly. Nice to be working with the old bastard again."
Leeds four-piece The Dunwells have just announced an EP, Show Me Emotion for 8th September.
