The Hellacopters - Hopeless Case Of A Kid In Denial
The Hellacopters are a Swedish rock band that was formed in 1994, and have released six full
length albums of their own material, a cover album, two compilations of non album work, six EPs,
and many other official releases.
In October of 2007 the band officially announced their break up after an extensive European tour and the release of a double disc live album.
The band was, together with The Hives, one of the most important Swedish bands in the garage rock revival and one of the most influential rock bands in Sweden.
Frontman Nick Royale will continue to work with his other band Death Breath and record a solo record of some sort later on. He also syas that he would like to record and tour once again with his soul band The Solution, but due to all of the diffrent members involment with other projects, finding time for everyone to record and tour is difficult.
Robert Dahlqvist will return to his own band Thunder Express, with which he plans to release a swedish record with lyrics from Stefan Sundström under the name 'Dunder Tåget'.
Kenny Håkansson will form a band with the drummer of the danish rock band Baby Woodrose, the currently untitled band is described as 'psychadelic rock a'la 1971'.
Robert Eriksson will do work with his currently unsigned band Tramp and work at a music youth center.
This weekend the hellacopters will play thier last shows, 4 sold out concerts @ Debaser / Stockholm and guess who will be there :)
So, i will give you all some classic tunes from these fellows one today and one tomorrow i hope you will like them as much as i do!

days of pure rock at the 4 sold out gigs at Debaser Medis in Stockholm.

the gas every single second they have been on stage - just as intensely they
