Overview

It's been a while since listeners last heard from the HeadCat, Lemmy Kilmister's rock & roll side project. And now, five years after the release of their debut, Fool's Paradise, comes their sophomore effort, Walk the Walk...Talk the Talk. Joining the Lem-man once more are Stray Cats drummer Slim Jim Phantom and Rockats guitarist Danny B. Harvey, and again, the trio has cooked up a rockin' good time, heavy on readings of classic rock & rollers from yesteryear, cases in point being several tracks that were later covered/made famous by rock royalty -- the Chuck Berry obscurity "Let It Rock" (later covered by the Rolling Stones), Johnny Kidd & the Pirates' "Shakin' All Over" (later covered by the Who), and an album-closing rendition of Robert Johnson's "Crossroads" (later covered by Cream). And Lemmy's trademark throaty growl works better than you'd think in the context of old-time rock & roll, as he takes it down a few notches on such ditties as "I Ain't Never" and "The Eagle Flies on Friday." As with the HeadCat's debut album, Walk the Walk...Talk the Talk is a much welcomed arrival in a period that will undoubtedly go down as "the Auto-Tune era," when the original thrill of raw and real rock & roll has been all but replaced by computer-perfected blahness.
