Biography

Le Chat Noir were hard-rockin’ Transatlantic desperadoes Teddy Hesper and Eileen Spruce. The band formed shortly after Spruce moved to England from her native Los Angeles in the winter of 2006 and split at the end of 2011.

In between, the duo hit the European gigging circuit hard, performing several hundred gigs in 8 different countries, their full throttle live performances leaving stages soaked with sweat and blood and littered with broken drumsticks.

Along the way, Teddy and Eileen shared a stage with acts such as Motorhead, UFO, The Sonics, MC5, Saxon, The Datsuns, Nick Oliveri of Queens Of The Stone Age, The Dwarves, Wanda Jackson, The Bellrays, The Gories, The Oblivians, Nine Black Alps, She Keeps Bees and The Kids.

Le Chat Noir recorded and released three albums through Garage Sale Records. Lyrically, the albums are a thematic trilogy of gritty tales based in a fictional setting that is part lawless Wild West, part shadowy film noir - featuring stories about femme fatales, hard liquor, murder and dark intrigue. Debut album Tales From Silver City was voted Playmusic Magazine’s Best Unsigned Recording of 2006 and quickly sold out; 2007’s Deadwood is also sold out, whilst a third studio album, Postcards From The Dark Highway, was released in May 2009.

Le Chat Noir were working on a 4th studio album at the time of their demise.
