...a.k.a. "MOTÖRHEAD & friends"? Their heavy Motörhead-bias comes as no surprise since GWR was formed by one of their managers, Douglas Smith, who also managed many of the other 'head-related acts on the label. The meaning of the abbreviation is no more exciting than the fact that they had their office on Great Western Road, London. For more info on MOTÖRHEAD-releases, The Corroseum recommends www.motorheadoverkill.se - the best and most detailed Motörhead-discog page I've come across so far.

They had quite a lot of non-Metal/Hard Rock artists in their roster, but the majority of their releases were on-topic, some of them even great, kinda, so of course they had to be included here.

Albums start right below - Singles/EPs start here.
