A few hours before the first ever show of Imperial State Electric in Athens RockpagesTV camera sneaks in Kyttaro to talk with this huge figure of rock’n’roll that managed to keep it’s banner high through the tough ‘90s and spread it like wildfire across Europe. Our talk begins with “All Through The Night”, the band’s recent release and extends throughout Nicke’s career with Hellacopters, The Solution, his influences, etc. Interview: Yiannis Dolas

This was a show I was expecting eagerly for this year! You see, unfortunately, in Greece we don’t have the chance to see bands like this quite often, while this was the first time the great Nicke Andersson, Hellacopters’ leader, was visiting our country. So, every fan of this sound should be there, but they weren’t.

Αναμφισβήτητα ήταν η συναυλία που περίμενα με τη μεγαλύτερη ανυπομονησία για φέτος! Βλέπετε δυστυχώς στην χώρα μας δεν έχουμε συχνά την ευκαιρία να βλέπουμε τέτοιες μπάντες, ενώ αυτή θα ήταν η πρώτη φορά που ο μεγάλος Nicke Andersson, ηγέτης των Hellacopters, θα επισκεπτόταν την χώρα μας. Η παρουσία λοιπόν όλων των οπαδών του συγκεκριμένου ήχου και όχι μόνο ήταν επιβεβλημένη, αλλά τελικά φτωχή.

This is on of the most important people in our music for the last 20 years and there is no trace of exaggeration in that. We are talking about Nicke Andersson who begun as the drummer in Entombed created the Hellacopters and is now the leader of Imperial State Electric. Having created an entire movement with his music and aesthetics in European rock’n’roll, he contributed in various projects always following his muse, collaborating with true legends. We will have the chance to see him and Imperial State Electric live in a few days for two shows in Athens and Thessaloniki. Given the chance of these shows and before we go pay our respect to the man we talked with him about the band’s latest release, his glorious past and the forthcoming visit to Greece.
