Larvaes and germs, we have The Solution, the latest project of Nicke Andersson, one of the main originators of Swedish death metal (and cover artist of the Swedish Death Metal book). This dude keeps going and going and going, and he’s always wearing a sharp lid. Vocals by Scott Morgan of The Rationals and Sonic’s Rendezvous Band. This clip for the song “You Gotta Come Down” was shot on one roll of Super-8, as director Jim Heneghan explains: “A roll of Super-8 runs for about 3 minutes and 20 seconds of moving pictures. The song ‘You Gotta Come Down’ runs 3 minutes and 23 seconds. So Super-8 was a perfect choice for a one-shot, one-take Super-8 promo film.”



  1. god bless this dude for all his creativity. i can’t say i’m totally into this but i wasn’t won over by The Hellacopters when i first heard them and they’ve been one of my favorite bands for years now. anyway, it almost seems logical he’d be doing stuff like this considering the last few Hellacopters were progressively getting lighter/cleaner/less raucous than earlier output. thanx for sharing this… i wouldn’t have known he was up to something otherwise.

    btw, the book is OUTSTANDING. incredible job!

  2. Wow! Way to go Nicke! I just played Nihilist’s “Severe Burns” from their 1988 demo on my radio show last night. The Solution sounds great. Reminds me of something that would’ve been recently unearthed by The Numbero Group or thrown on “Mr. Finewine’s” show on WFMU.
