"Tokyo three-piece the HEIZ comes storming
out of the gate with some balls-to-the-wall ol' timey garage.
Wearing their '60s influences loud and proud, taking in some early
blues influence from the PRETTY THINGS, the YARDBIRDS, and even
a soulful touch of THEE MIDNIGHTERS...bags of energy, attitude,
and rawness -- MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL (1/10)
Shaku and Asako were members of the well known
electro-rock three piece Milkteath
while Kimura played drums for indie rock band Outside. Both bands
released many CDs and DVDs, toured Japan nationwide numerous times,
and appeared on several television shows. But Shaku, Asako, and
Kimura couldn’t get any satisfaction…
The three members of “the heiz” first met in 2005
when their respective bands played together for the first time.
Three years worth of jam sessions later and “the heiz”
The theme of "the heiz" is "DO NATURALLY”.
"the heiz" eat MUSIC and excrete ROCK’N’ROLL.
"the heiz" want to make pure music, like the musicians
that inspire them (The Beatles, The Ramones, Chuck Berry).
“the heiz” really want you to hear their ROCK’N’ROLL.
Tokyo No Records is pleased to release the band's
worldwide self-titled debut album.
