MOTÖRHEAD's LEMMY Working On First Solo Album

MOTÖRHEAD's Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister recently spent time at Berlin's Monongo studios (web site) (owned by German rockers SKEW SISKIN) recording tracks for his first solo CD.

"We are working on [Lemmy's] solo album at the moment," SKEW SISKIN guitarist Jim Voxx revealed in an interview Sunday (November 9) with the Radio Fritz metal show "Stahlwerk". "The record will be out in 2004 or 2005 — it'll take probably some time [to get it done]. Late one evening, [Lemmy] was ringing at our door with a load of tapes in his arms and asked, 'How long will you be awake tonight.' "

The as-yet-untitled CD will contain cover tunes as well as new tracks. In addition to SKEW SISKIN, the album is expected to include a guest appearance by REVEREND HORTON HEAT, among others.

Lemmy recently collaborated with SKEW SISKIN on the track "Shake Me", which is set to be included on SKEW SISKIN's new album "Album Of The Year", due on November 24 via Ulftone Records.
