“Supershit 666 or Super$hit 666 were a European rock supergroup consisting of Ginger from The Wildhearts on vocals and guitar, Nicke Andersson from the Hellacopters on vocals and drums, Dregen from the Backyard Babies on vocals and guitar, and Swedish producer Thomas Skogsberg on bass.”
I copied that from Wiki.
I got what is supposed to be The Wildhearts’ best album “Earth Vs. The Wildhearts” and was very disappointed (too poppy and stupid-punk, kind of like something like Rancid at times). The Backyard Babies are very inconsistent as well and I think Dregen is crazy for choosing BB over the Hellacopters, because the Hellas were best when Dregen was around. (For a great example, dial up BB’s version of “Star Wars” and compare it to Supershit’s “Star Wars Jr.” In this case, junior beats the crap out of senior.)
Nicke Andersson is a god. He’s the main force behind The Hellacopters, as a guitarist and main vocalist. With SS666, he plays drums, where he originally began with the thrash band Entombed. And play the drums he does. For me, SS666 is a rock drum clinic, especially on the use of the snare. Nicke’s drumming could be what puts the whole thing over the top.
I don’t know Thomas Skogsberg very well, but he’s supposed to be a legendary producer.
Legend has it that this band wrote and recorded everything in one day. They never performed live. Does it get any more rock ‘n’ roll than that?
You can hear it in the recording, with just enough sloppiness to keep things interesting and the producer and other band members talking to one another throughout.
Maybe the whole one-day thing is contrived and they really recorded it in two weeks or something, but, even if that’s the case (hopefully not), it’s still a cool concept.
If you don’t already know, it’s my favorite piece of music of all-time. I can listen to it every day.
Thank you and goodnight.
