As many CiTR listeners may already be aware, Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister of the inimitable heavy metal group Motörhead (and earlier, the prog-rock outfit Hawkwind) passed away this Monday, December 28, 2015.

In remembrance of the English musician, From the CiTR Archives will take a look back to 1997, when our own Nardwuar the Human Serviette conducted one of his characteristically awkward interviews with the metal star.

Head over to UBC Library’s Open Collections to hear the complete, unedited original open reel recording! It’s yours to stream online, or download and keep forever (for research and reference use, of course)! You can also find a transcript of the interview on Nardwuar’s personal website, as well as a 1999 follow-up interview on his YouTube channel.
