THE HELLACOPTERS ... In 40 Minutes
Welcome back to our In 40 Minutes series where we curate what we think are the best 40 minutes of music from an underrated band's career ... with headbangers and hard rockers in mind (ie. you won't be hearing many ballads!).
Basically, it's what we'd put on a single vinyl release (being limited to 20 minutes per side) if we were asked to put a Best Of record together to convince the uninitiated long haired miscreant that this band is worth checking out.
Our latest episode is dedicated to Swedish rock'n'roll unit ... The Hellacopters. Led by ex-Entombed drummer (here supplying guitars/vocals) is Nicke Anderson, providing the necessary heavy metal cred. The Hellacopters started out as a hardcore rock'n'roll/garage unit, but subsequently slipped into an outright, fun-loving rnr band as they progressed over their 14 year recording career. They've recently reunited, but have yet to put out any new material.
