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:

Bad Reputation records have released a remastered version of their 1987 album "Look Like Hell" plus 2 bonus tracks.Excellent melodic hard rock / sleaze, their first and MEGARARE cd! Released on the CNR RECORDS label back in 1987! Ah Sleeze Beez! Do you remember them? Yes if your trip is the good old Hard Us. No for the others.Sleeze Beez was a Dutch group founded in 1987 by drummer Jan Koster and guitarist Chriz van Jaarsveld. The Batavians will know their hour of glory with their second album Screwed, Blue And Tattooed with in particular their hit "Stranger In Paradise". Their 3rd album Powertool was clearly influenced by Hysteria by Def Leppard and 4th Insanity Beach heavier and more anchored in the 90’s. This will be followed by the publication of an excellent live performance in Japan. Then the group will eventually split up soon after.However before being successful, the Dutch published a first essay Look Like Hell. This album even seems to have been denied by its parents. It is true that when we listen to this first try, we can only be surprised. The overall purpose is quite Glam and festive. In fact, this album is clearly a work of youth with a lot of clumsiness. The music offered by the quintet is correct and generally well produced. The musicians are sharp. The rhythm section although simple in its construction is effective. Guitar games also basic but played properly. The weak point probably comes from the singer Tiger. We feel an obvious desire to do well on his part, but his vocal limits are particularly destabilizing. Often, we are sorry for him as he pushes on his voice for an often disgusting result. All of this, you can imagine ruins the pleasure of listening and therefore no title is memorable. Finally we note that the lyrics are rather weak.On the other hand, when listening to songs like "Too Wild To Be Innocent", the fast and catchy "Hit And Run" and "Jesse", or the more FM "Dying To Live" we will recognize the dough that Sleeze Beez will develop more late. "Look Like Hell" seems pretty inspired by Ozzy Ultimate Sin's album.But other titles are particularly bad like the opening track "Girls, Girls, Nasty Nasty" which drags on too long and especially the cover of "Shame, Shame, Shame" clearly massacred by Tiger. Bad choice? Oh yeah. Their "Hot And Heavy Woman" could have worked but it is once again messy and awkward. Besides, if you listen to it carefully, the person in charge of the mix probably put effects on the vocals during the choruses to hide his weaknesses.Undoubtedly aware that if they wanted to move forward they had to separate from their singer, the Batavians will hire shortly after the release of this Look Like Hell the excellent Englishman Andrew Elt. And this will make Sleeze Beez a completely different combo ...
