Lemmy's little side project is a very fine one. It is good clean solid rock'n'roll or rockabilly from the days when Lemmy was a boy or a young man. The music that inspired him to form Motörhead years later on a mission to rock us all deaf.
The band is a trio of Lemmy (bass + vocals), Slim Jim (drums) and Danny B (guitars + piano). They have played several live gigs, but I haven't been fortunate enough to see one of those.
I really enjoy the laid-back performance of these old rock'n'roll classics by Lem and the guys and I think it can be a nice break from the thunder of Motörhead from time to time. If you want to hear a different "softer" Lemmy, give it a chance.
The new album also holds two new songs written by the band themselves. They are called "American Beat" and "The Eagle Flies On Friday". None of them stand back when compared to the older songs and they fit in perfectly.
The band's first album has been released in 2 versions. One with 18 tracks called "Lemmy, Slim Jim & Danny B" and then a 15 track version called "Fool's Paradise" which omits 3 of the tracks.
I find the new album better than the first because the new album is more raw and dirty, so you should probably check out the new album first, if you are interested.
