THE HELLACOPTERS – Head Off
Swedish rock n’ roll kings sign off.
Well it seems Nicke Andersson is finally calling time on the Hellacopters and this will be their final album. And that’s a same, ‘cos this seventh album is twelve slices of super-catchy, melodic, 70’s rock n’ roll that kicks chrome-plated ass from start to finish. This is great top down, foot to the floor driving music with huge choruses on the likes of ‘Midnight Angels’ and ‘In the Sign of the Octopus’. At times sounding both like Australian punk legends Radio Birdman or Finnish neighbours Hanoi Rocks, ‘Head Off’ is a great way to go out and in these times of copycat emo bands and anonymous metal it’s a super charged shot of powered up punk, pop and rock n’ roll that’s a real breath of fresh air. Check ‘em out before they’re gone.
