When Girlschool were recording in Rickmansworth
with producer Vic Maile
, he had the idea that Motörhead and Girlschool should record a single together. The result was this three-track EP
, on which the bands duetted on a cover of Johnny Kidd & The Pirates
' "Please Don't Touch
". The bands also covered each other, with Motörhead performing Girlschool's "Emergency", and Girlschool playing Motörhead's "Bomber". The EP was recorded while Motörhead's drummer Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor
was recovering from a neck injury sustained playing "who can lift each other up the highest" with a large Irishman, so Denise Dufort deputised.
The EP was released in 1981 in 7" and 10" vinyl formats, with the same cover and track listing. It reached #5 in the UK Singles Charts.Burridge, Alan Illustrated Collector's Guide to Motörhead
