Album review: The Head Cat, "Walk the Walk...Talk the Talk"

The Head Cat is Lemmy's rock n' roll sideline with Stray Cats' drummer Slim Jim Phantom and Lonesome Spur/Rockats guitarist Danny B. Harvey, with Lem dabbling on bass, guitar, vocals and harmonica.

The seeds of the project started with an Elvis tribute album in 2000, which instigated the trio's 2006 debut
Fool's Paradise

This is another kickass collection of rock n' roll numbers, two originals (American Beat and The Eagle Flies On Friday) and ten covers, that give Lem an outlet for his rockin' soul which first got stirred and shaken with The Rockin' Vickers. Walk The Walk… may make Motorhead fans chuckle, but true pundits should be interested in where Lemmy’s origins come from. Good old rockin’ toons like Chuck Berry's Let It Rock and Eddie Cochran's Something Else have a direct connection to Motorhead’s rep!

  1. Make Motorhead fans chuckle? Hey, chucklehead, Motorhead covered "I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man", "You Better Run" basically IS "Trouble" by Elvis Presley, and David Vincent from Morbid Angel has taken Lemmy's place in the Head Cat, and his baritone singing voice is much closer to the original material! Now, sit in corner and think about what you've done!
