The Hellacopters
Alternative


What the MC5 and Stooges were to the '60s, what Sonic's Rendezvous Band and Radio Birdman were to the '70s, and what the Celibate Rifles were to the '80s -- that's what Sweden's Hellacopters were to the '90s. Young, strapping and rocking out to almost cartoon-like proportions, the Hellacopters have made quite a name for themselves in Europe and Australia. Now a deal with Sub Pop has them targeting the States. The rock -- fast, extremely hard, and loud beyond reason -- has gotten the band noticed by several of their seminal influences, such as Scott Morgan, who has performed with them many times as well as collaborated on a single for the aforementioned Sub Pop label; and the Dictators, with whom they have done several European tours. Releases include 1998's Super Shitty to the Max and its 1999 follow-up, Grande Rock. The Hellacopters also teamed with Gluecifer for a 1999 split release, Respect the Rock America. White Trash Soul appeared in early 2001, followed by the European release of High Visibility. That record wouldn't see American soil for a whole year, while they garnered awards in their home country. Geoff Ginsberg
