Traumahelikopter – Traumahelikopter


Traumahelikopter – Traumahelikopter
Excelsior/V2 – 2012
Rock, Garage, Fuzz
Rated: ****

Hailing from the communistic and punk capital of the Netherlands, these guys have been touring mercilessly (together with Shaking Godspeed) the past years and still found the time to record their debut album a few months ago. They did this within a week and it must be the only way to capture the intense energy level that Traumahelikopter brings to the stage. Two guitars that grind, scream, riff and howl accompanied by a very stripped down drum-set that gives a simple beat and only steadies the two string-slinging amigos. Cause the raging guitars and the simple hedonistic lyrics are the real vocal-points of this trio. They have an air of sixties psychedelic garage surrounding them and spit back at the start of the punk-era. It might be simplistic; but sometimes that’s all you need. Explosive rock and roll that burns your soul and sets your heart alight!
