The band was formed after recording the Elvis Presley tribute album by Swing Cats A Special Tribute to Elvis in July 1999 to which the future bandmates all contributed. After recordings were finished they stayed at the studio and Lemmy picked up an acoustic guitar and started playing some of his old favourite songs by Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly, and Eddie Cochran. The rest of the guys knew them all and joined in. The name of the band was created by combining the names Motörhead, The Stray Cats, and 13 Cats, which resulted in HeadCat.In 2006, the band released their first studio album Fool’s Paradise. It included cover songs from artists 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. In later years, Lemmy began to use his signature Rickenbacker bass in live performances. Walk The Walk… Talk The Talk, the band’s second album, was first released in 2011 and features covers from the likes of Chuck Berry, The Eagles and The Beatles as well as band originals, American Beat and The Eagle Flies On Friday. It also comes on a new colour way – Half/Half Black/White. The CD features extended sleeve notes based on interviews with Danny B. Harvey and Slim Jim Phantom.Live In Berlin is a previously unreleased live concert which was recorded at the Huxley’s in Berlin, Germany on 18th October 2011. Dreamcatcher was recorded at the Dreamcatcher theatre at the Viejas Casino in Alpine CA on 1st February 2008. The two records weere produced by the band and mastered by guitarist Danny B Harvey. The new editions also feature extended sleeve notes based on interviews with Danny B. Harvey and Slim Jim Phantom.HeadCat redefined rock ‘n’ roll in their own way as they took all of the elements that made this groundbreaking genre so exciting to generations of rockers and gave it their own eclectic twist.
