Head Cat, Walk the Walk…Talk the Talk, CD Review
Ever wanted to see Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister in a poodle skirt at a sock hop? No! I guess even the very thought could get one extremely injured in some parts. What would ever make me think of such an unseemly sight? What I’m talking about is the new Head Cat CD, “Walk the Walk….Talk the Talk”. This is Head Cat’s second release, and it’s along the lines of the first, which consists of cover songs of mostly late 50’s and early 60’s rock, which a lot of people out there consider the golden era of rock. Just to put you in the know, Head Cat is made up of Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead (Head), Slim Jim Phantom, formerly of The Stray Cats (Cat), and the other one. No, I joke. The third piece of this puzzle is Danny B. Harvey of Lonesome Spur and other endeavors.
The CD includes two original Head Cat Tunes, “American Beat” and “The Eagle Flies On Friday”, along with ten cover tunes by the likes of Larry Williams (“Bad Boy”), Chuck Berry (“Let It Rock”) and Eddie Cochran (“Something Else”, which some of you out there might recall was also done by Sid Vicious from a little known group called The Sex Pistols), reimagined through one of the most distinctive voices in rock. The list goes on with songs like, “I Ain’t Never”, Trying To Get To You”, “Crossroads” and “You Can’t Do That. If you want to recreate those heady days of Rock And Roll, just put this on your phonograph…errr, CD player and remember what it was once like, but with a new twist.
