Bio:

An appropriately named sleaze band, the Sleeze Beez managed to fuse the sounds of AC/DC and Def Leppard to create their own unrelenting brand of hard rock. “When The Brains Go To The Balls” will remain one of the best song titles by any group in this genre.Sleeze Beez photoIn a unique twist, Chriz Van Jaarsveld (guitar) and Jan Koster (drums) managed to talk their way into a record deal before a band (or many songs for that matter) was even formed. In order to start recording, a band was thrown together featuring Don Van Spall (guitar), Ed Jongsma (bass) and vocalist Tiger. The debut album Look Like Hell was only released regionally, but Sleeze Beez were beginning to make people take notice.During the recording of what would become Screwed Blued & Tattooed, front man Tiger was replaced by Andrew Elt and Sleeze Beez were poised for success. Atlantic Records snatched up the group, got the band considerable airplay for the single “Stranger Than Paradise” and had the boys opening for Skid Row. The album reached #115 on Billboard’s Top 200 and the future looked bright, but within two years the band had quickly fallen from grace.The band had another album in the can by the end of 1990, but lack of management and disagreements with the record company saw Powertool shelved for almost two full years. Of course by the time the record was finally released, bands like Sleeze Beez were becoming extinct thanks to a movement from Seattle. The album sank without a trace and the label quickly cut their losses and dropped the band. A final independent release and live album proved to be Sleeze Beez‘s last gasp, as the Sleeze Beez group photogroup disbanded in 1996. Elt and guitarist Don Van Spaal went on to form a new band called Moon which released a full length album entitled The Moon in 1999.After years of rumours that the band would get back together, Sleeze Beez finally reunited to play live for the first time in 15 years at a reunion kick off show at Lakei in Helmond, Holland on June 19, 2010 followed by a show at the Geiredome Stadium in Arnhem, Holland on June 23, 2010 sharing a bill with Aerosmith, Stone Temple Pilots and Steel Panther. A greatest hits album titled The Very Best Of Sleeze Beez along with a live album entitled Screwed Live! were released in 2010 before the band went back into obscurity in early 2011 just after recording their first song together since 1994, a cover of Journey‘s “Faithfully.”

Album:

The majority of the hard rock loving public are probably not aware their was a band called Sleeze Beez. Hair metal fans know them, (most of them love this band) but very few are aware that Sleeze Beez put out a fourth studio album in 1994.The hair metal scene was on life support by this time, and new releases such as this one, got very little, if any mentions in the press.The tunes on Insanity Beach have a much harder edge than the Sleeze Beez previous releases.Insanity Beach isn’t so heavy that Sleeze Beez fans wont like it. In fact, those taking the time out to check this disc out, will be greatly surprised.Many hard rock acts from the late 80’s and early 90’s tried to update their sound in an effort to keep going. The change in the Sleeze Beez sound isn’t quite as drastic as the updated sounds from Warrant, Shotgun Messiah, or Asphalt Ballet. It may be a harder approach, but its very listenable.My favorite cuts on this disc are “Human Zoo“, “Sacrifice“, and the title track “Insanity Beach“. While I don’t think this CD is as good as Screwed, Blued & Tattooed, it is better than previous effort, Powertool.Although ‘Insanity Beach’ features the trusted Sleeze Beez formula, the Beez seem to have taken a slightly more experimental road on this album, accounting for a bigger amount of listening pleasure. It’s not like the Beez suddenly turn into a Prog band, it’s still Rock ‘n’ Roll, just slightly more interestingly structured. The tension build-up in ‘Save Myself’ makes the song my favorite Beez-song, the spoken parts in ‘Gun Culture’ took some getting used to, but make it a truly powerful and unique song and the slower, creeping ‘D.U.I. (Intoxicated)’ and ‘Hate Rock And Roll’ (did anyone say ‘Kashmir’?) are welcome variations in the tempo department. Rest assured though, closing track ‘Scream’ revives the party atmosphere of most of ‘Screwed, Blued And Tattooed’.Most Rock ‘n’ Roll bands can rock. However, it takes a brilliant singer to lift the actual music to a higher level. Andrew Elt is such a singer. I heard he’s fronting a Led Zeppelin coverband these days and he does have a Robert Plant-ish touch to his vocals (and his appearance), although Elt fits the eighties Glam Metal idiom a little more. The guys backing him are more than adequate though. Jan Koster is a true power hitter and Ed Jongsma delivers bass lines just slightly more interesting than the standard Rock bassist. And I don’t know who plays which solo, but Chriz van Jaarsveld and Don van Spall are both awesome guitarists. Check out those in ‘The Long Goodbye’ and ‘Sacrifice’ for great examples.But what’s most important are the actual songs. And as you may have understood from the ones mentioned above, there’s no need to complain there. Actually, that’s where the band name may be a bit misleading. The music heard on ‘Insanity Beach’ is classy seventies Hardrock with a touch of eighties L.A. Glam Metal, but the influence of Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith is much more apparent than, for instance, Mötley Crüe or Ratt. I’d take ‘Save Myself’ over ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ any day.What I’m trying to say, I guess, is this: get over the somewhat misleading band name or even if you like it sleazy, give this band a chance. Let’s just rephrase the chorus to one of the songs: if you like Rock ‘n’ Roll, I know you’re gonna like this.
