So for years people have been asking me if I will ever get someone from The Hellacopters on the show since the name of the zine I started in 1998 and this podcast I started in 2007 was named after one of their songs. Well, my friends, it finally happened and it’s awesome! I got The Hellacopters’ drummer, Robert Eriksson, on to have a chat about all things ‘Copters and the like in this two hour spectacular of radness. The Hellacopters mean so much to a lot of people, myself included, and so Robert coming on this show was pretty darn special for me. I have featured interviews with both Nicke Andersson (vocals / guitars) and Robert at separate times in the zine in the past and they were on the cover of the very first issue, but many years have passed since those zine days and The Hellacopters have reformed and the people have been more than excited. Is it just a reunion? Will there be more shows? New albums? What is coming next? Well I made sure to ask Robert all about those hot topics and it’s all here. We start from his beginnings, how the band formed, their unfortunate demise in 1998, to their reunion shows happening this year. It’s a great chat and I think you’re going to love it.

SIDE NOTE: I know and am well aware that Manic Street Preachers are Welsh. I stupidly said English when I meant U.K. DUH!!! Honest mistake that I make too many times when I say things are English when I mean the whole of the U.K. Apologies to any who get pissed about that. I know Kerry King made the same mistake once too. Geography is confusing sometimes.

This week’s interview is a fun chat with Millencolin bassist and singer, Nikola Sarcevic, as we talk about such things as the key to staying together as a band for over 20 years with the same line-up, broken bones on tour, sharing the stage with a living legend, and how Refused played a bigger part in the Swedish music scene than one would believe. There’s tour stories and the whole kit and kaboodle and whether you’re a fan of Millencolin, or they’re unknown to your ears, you can listen in right now by clicking on THIS LINK. (more…)
