BIG KIZZ is the rock band featuring drummer Axel Sjöberg (ex-GRAVEYARD), guitarist John Hoyles (SPIDERS, ex-WITCHCRAFT) on bass and vocalist / guitarist Pontus Westerman from Swedish garage outfit LADY BANANA. The classic power trio, who plays good time rock ‘n’ roll energized with elements of power pop and punk, has signed to Tee Pee Records and will release its debut EP, “Eye On You”, on June 9.
BIG KIZZ‘s bad-as-hell debut features the swinging originals “Eye On You” and “Baby Boy” and a rousing remake of the Roky Erickson ripper “White Faces”. The three-song release is but a precursor to BIG KIZZ‘s full-length debut, tentatively slated for release this fall.
“I’ve been doing this too long to quit rocking now,” Sjöberg comments. “When I turn a page and wonder what to do in life, I go to country lyrics and in this case Willie Nelson: ‘The life I love is makin’ music with my friends, and I can’t wait the get on the road again.’ So that’s just what I did; I made music with my friends. We’re taking it to Norway first and then we’ll just see where it takes us after that. That’s the beauty of it: music is fucking magic. I hope you feel it too.”
