Jim Voxx of Skew Siskin revealed this afternoon on Steve Göldby Talks Metal via TotalRock that he is working on Lemmy's solo album which he estimates will be released later this year.

In a fascinating conversation, Jim discusses many aspects of his times with Lemmy, some details of the new forthcoming Skew Siskin album which Lemmy appears on, as well as great memories of touring with Motörhead and confirming that he has been working on the live mix from the December 3rd Headcat Lemmy Tribute show.

Jim told us:

"We are also in the very last stages of the Lemmy solo album.

"I still don't know when it will be released because this is in the hands of the Motörhead management and it took a while now but you know, Lemmy had so many things left, there are so many other recordings and they all had to sort out how to proceed and there is no real time rush to release this album so I can imagine it will be towards the end of this year."

Jim continued:

"The songs are composed by Lemmy and when he started with me doing this, that was back in 2003, he didn't have a real idea what would be on it so he came to me and asked me if I would work with him on this because I was able to provide him the studio time he needed because as you know, always during summer Motörhead was doing festivals here in Europe and he used Berlin as a springboard so he had the time in the summer to be here and work on further tracks.

"He also recorded some tracks in America with Dave Grohl or Reverend Horton Heat, and in London he was working wth The Damned, and all these tracks came to me to Berlin, because I am the producer of the album, and we continued working on this.

"We started out with two Skew Siskin songs and whatever would be next, at that time he didn't know, because he was just looking round, he wanted to take his time. It was the total opposite of working with Motörhead because he had to do it in his free time between the Motörhead work.

"But I gave him the possibility always to come here and work in the studio whenever he needed and step-by-step we got the songs together and we have ten songs, and we thought it would have been released a long time ago now but when Lemmy got ill, we stopped working on it, but the recordings were all done."

For the new forthcoming Skew Siskin album, Lemmy also played bass on one song which is done in the style of The Who's classic phase of 1968-1972 and Jim expands on this in the conversation, including the fine detail of how Lemmy created his solos for this particular track and much more too.

Skew Siskin frontlady Nina C Alice also confirmed that Lemmy contributed lyrics for the new Skew Siskin album in 2013.

You can listen to the whole conversation on our On Demand page right here. The chat with Jim and Nina begins at 22.56 of part two of Wednesday's Milk Tray Edition.

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
