He Arrived by Helicopter “Cold Damn Truth” – Listen

Formed by Christian Gibbs, there’s a story behind this band name: during a recent not so glamorous tour date one of the more successful sidemen of the group, Tim Kuhl, who had just come off a festival circuit with Sean Lennon remarked “You know Gibbs, I usually arrive by Helicopter to these things nowadays.” Hence, He Arrived By Helicopter was born.  ‘Cold Damn Truth‘ has a delicate whispered confessional opener which rolls into a rich rootsy ballad.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
