Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead), Slim Jim Phantom (The Stray Cats), and Danny B. Harvey (Rockats, 13 Cats, Lonesome Spurs) playingold school rock and roll together.The Head Cat is a rockabilly supergroup formed by Lemmy, Slim Jim Phantom, and Danny B. Harvey after recording the Elvis Presley tribute album Swing Cats, A Special Tribute to Elvis in 2000. After recordings were finished the guys hanged around and Lemmy picked up an acoustic guitar and started playing some of his favorite old songs by Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly, and Eddie Cochran and the rest of they guys knew them all and joined in. The name was created by combining the names Motörhead, The Stray Cats, and 13 Cats which resulted in The Head Cat, similar to what Lemmy did in 1980 with Headgirl, a collaboration beetween Motörhead and Girlschool.In 2006 the band released their first studio album Fool's Paradise which includes cover-songs from artist such as Buddy Holly, Carl Perkins, Jimmy Reed, T-Bone Walker, Lloyd Price, Elvis Presley, and Johnny Cash. On the recordings Lemmy played acoustic guitar but on live performances Lemmy uses his signature Rickenbacker bass saying "I'm just not that good on guitar". A year later a DVD of a live performance filmed at the Phantom's Cat Club on Los Angeles' Sunset Strip which included 13 songs performed live and interviews with the band.In 2011 The Head Cat signed to Niji Entertainment Group, a label that was created by Ronnie James Dio and his wife and manager, Wendy Dio.

Talk The Talk' To be released on 21 June 2011.Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
