I had said in the previous post that I was going to be looking at something that I think shows Lemmy Kilmister in a better light than the new Live Album Clean Your Clock by Motörhead and this is it.

It was filmed and recorded originally back in 2004 but did not get released until 2006. The Audio of the show got issued back in May of this year (though I only recently stumbled upon it) though it had been released as a Limited Edition Vinyl along with the DVD of the show.

It's such a great set loaded with songs by Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Fats Domino and Eddie Cochran - probably the soundtrack to a young Lemmy's life.
Lemmy, Slim Jim Phantom and Danny B. Harvey are The Head Cat. When their debut album, Fools Paradise, was released back in 2006 very little notice of it seems to have been taken (you can listen to at the link near the bottom of this piece).

The second album contained a couple of original songs as well as some rock and roll classics. It's one of my favourite albums.

Lemmy reckoned that The Head Cat were not actually that much different from Motörhead and said in an interview with Classic Rock that he wanted to go out and tour properly with the band - "There's no reason why we can't aim to do an album a year. It's not as if we are short of songs to cover. There must be a 1,000 of them at least. And because hardly any are more than two minutes long there's no time for people to get bored. That's Rock 'n'Roll."
