"It's all about primeval garage rock with dirty blues riffs and a singer that doesn't just talk the talk, but walks the walk and then some. This is the kind of band that would kick start that early morning house party come riot that memories are made of." - Capsule


"Copter are great. .. doing that kind of rock 'n roll funked up stuff that ties up James Brown soulful strutting with grimy rock. Class."
- Artrocker


"They come from Mars via Birmingham, dress in uniforms, have a fully functioning android that takes the lead on some songs and a preacher cum front man who spends most of his time in the audience or on top of the speakers."
- Artrocker


"Some bands are all gimmicks and no musical substance, not so with Birmingham's Copter. High energy, dirty low down rock and roll that sits nicely next to the headliners (Blues Explosion). The crowd clearly love every storming, shaking minute of their set." - Sandman


"This is what you call a hard rocking garage soul revue...They could be Man or Astroman, Make-up or Hives, all in the same song. In other words, a full on dance party a la Ramones in "Rock'n'Roll High School."
- Artrocker


"Copter are a band at the peak of their powers, playing the best sci-fi rock 'n' soul music in town... this band have got it going on. Don't miss the boat baby, get 'em while they're hot." - Brainlove


"Cool Jerk (The Capitols) organ with drippings of sonic fuzz - cream-filled soul-coated rock and roll that doesn't sell its soul to make people dance."
- The Crutch


"Sci-fi theatrics morphed with soulful rock 'n' roll from a six-piece who feature a robot droid called M.I.L.O among their numbers. Bonkers, but in a totally brilliant way."
- NME

Bio

We play needle-down, rocket powered rock & soul from outer space to your dancing feet via your inner ear.
We play with a fierce right side of the brain and are all about keeping it below the belt.
We're from 500 years in your future and we've been here since 2000.
We've played live with Blues Explosion, The Dirtbombs, Heavy Trash, The Soledad Brothers, Weird War, Bob Log III, Kid Congo Powers, Dan Sartain and many, many more of our favourite bands.
We've recorded 3 albums you can listen to, the first one was recorded in New York by legendary producer Matt Verta-Ray and our 3rd you can download for free.
We have a 3d comic book biography.
We've played in art galleries.
We've played in strip joints.
We've played in front of 5 people and we've played in front of 1500.
Sometimes we have a robot with us, sometimes we don't.
But we always, always, have soul.
We have 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, The Mistreaters etc.
