BLACK HELICOPTER Invisible Jet (2007)

Black Helicopter

Opening like a Hawkwind number from the early 70's (before the harmony vocals kick in), Buick Electra could be taken from the Space Ritual tour – dischordant and loose, this is how rock was back then – it even sounds like Dave Brock is there on sax. The guitar and vocals are eerily reminiscent of the era.

Coming out of Boston from the smoking embers of Green Magnet School and Kudgel, Black Helicopter are a four piece working out of their own recording studio, using 2 inch analogue equipment – which perhaps goes some way to explaining their ‘classic' sound.

All The Sense In The World is heavy and doom laden with a wall of powerful sound, while Warshed Out slows the pace. Elsewhere, one track begins to run into another – the band's big heavy sound somewhere between the Stooges and Tin Machine bludgeoning you into submission.

But I'll give it *** for Buick Electra alone.
