The Hellacopters – The Same Lame Story 7″
Not lame at all. Having announced they’re hanging up the boots and going out with a final album and a lap of honour in 2008, Sweden’s ‘Copters mark the beginning of their end with a single on ultra-cool Bootleg Booze. The A side’s a grittier effort than most of the material on the last album,”Rock and Roll Is Dead”, and it’s a little unassuming in spite of itself but still worthy of jukebox time. The flip builds from Kenny’s bassline and bursts out into the light, more raucous and in the vein of “By The Grace of God”. If it’s a dead horse it doesn’t sound like it’s getting flogged.
