Chances are you’ve never heard of rockabilly trio The Head Cat, who play Wasted Space this week. But you may be familiar with the group’s individual members:

Lemmy Kilmister is the lead singer and bassist of legendary metal trio Motörhead, and apparently also a fan of old Johnny Cash and Buddy Holly tunes.

Slim Jim Phantom is the drummer for noted ’80s rockabilly revivalists the Stray Cats.

Danny B. Harvey doesn’t appear to be famous, but he’s played with a number of rockabilly acts, and he’s probably pretty cool if he’s hanging out with Lemmy and Slim Jim.
