ABOUT THE BAND: COPTER: Five men playing needle-down rock & soul from outer space to your inner ear. They play with a fierce right side of the brain and are all about fire and soul. They don't understand why you are crying. They don't care why you are crying. They just want your sandwich. Over the years they have toured and played live with Blues Explosion, The Dirtbombs, Viva L'American Death Ray Music, Heavy Trash, The Hunches, The Soledad Brothers, Weird War, Mr. Airplane Man, The Immortal Lee County Killers, Speedball Baby, Bob Log III, Kid Congo Powers, The Woggles, The DT's, The Ponys, Rocket Science, Dan Sartain, The Mistreaters etc. They rocked the 2006 CMJ Music Festival in New York and continue to devastate venues everywhere in Europe and the USA, and in 2007 their song ‘Evil’ was featured as the theme tune to the MTV show ‘Dirty Sanchez’ which also featured several of their tunes throughout the series. Copter's debut album 'STRANGEST TALES' was recorded by Matt Verta-Ray (Madder Rose/Speedball Baby/Heavy Trash) in 1 week at his NY Hed Studios on Ludlow Street, Lower East Side, New York City. Strangest Tales has the honour of being the last album to be recorded at NY Hed, a place with a rich underground rock 'n' roll heritage... Andre Williams, Mick Collins (Dirtbombs), Blues Explosion, Kid Congo Powers (Gun Club/Cramps/Bad Seeds), Dolemite.... and the punk rock and soul history can definitely be heard and felt on the album too. 11 tracks clocking in at under 24 minutes, the high octane recording features guest appearances by Verta-Ray, Christina Campanella (Parker And Lilly/Heavy Trash), Ali Smith (Speedball Baby/The Oubliettes), Big Bang, Cameron Blain (Bakelite) and Mr. James Chance (The Contortions). Copter; a band playing music from outer space to your dancing feet via your brain at 5000 mph. Dig it!
