Teaze first show in Europe ever!

teaze2.jpgHere we have a hidden gem for you! Made in Canada! 
Any trivia buff will confirm that Windsor, Ontario is directly SOUTH of Detroit; the point being that there are parts of Canada closer to the American heartland than one might suspect.
TEAZE came from Windsor. They breathed Detroit's airwaves and rocked to its beat. Local influences mattered most. Bob Seger System, MC5, The Stooges, Grand Funk and Brownsville Station. This mixed bag of power rock, r&b and pizzazz made TEAZE stand out in Canada like the smell of a Marlboro in an Ontario beer parlour. There was something almost un-Canadian about the evangelical fervor that TEAZE displayed. Brian Danter sang 'til ithurt. Mark Bradac and Chuck Price invented slam dancing (and that was while playing their guitars). Mike Kozak, who never let his drum kit get in the way of self-expression, regularly went screaming off the stage to be closer to his audience. It was three or four shows in one and nobody had a label for it. The first TEAZE album was recorded in 1976 at a facility near Toronto called The Grange. The band thought they were taping demos. Nevertheless an LP called "TEAZE" was released. It ultimately went on to sell more copies in Sweden than Canada. After that, TEAZE was signed by Aquarius Records and the band moved to Montreal. In late 1977 they made an album called "ON THE LOOSE" with producer George Lagios. The big hit turned out to be a country styled song called "SWEET MISERY." Actually, to say that "SWEET MISERY" wreaked havoc on the band's image is an understatement. People who liked the song tended to dislike everything else about the band. Meanwhile those who might have been interested in the real TEAZE often never got past the Floyd Cramer intro. The next album marked a night of firsts. It was the first show outside of Canada. It was their first outing as a concert headliner. It was their first (and only) live album, "TOUR OF JAPAN."
But after 5 records it was over and they played their last gig in 1980.
Interest in the band started to pick up again when the Internet made it's breakthrough and we move forward to 2019 when Bradac brought up the idea with Danter of a reunion and after a dinner in town with the old band, the decision was made to go "all in". A packed Windsor Walkerville Theater in the winter of 2018 was the band's first together in almost 39 years and it was a total success. Those who saw the band testify that the band sounds just as good now as when it started and they have kept their strength in not only sounding good but also giving the audience a real show. As you know, there was eventually a pandemic that paralyzed the whole world and, among other things, put an end to Teaze playing in Japan again. BUT now they are coming to us in Knislinge and doing their first gig ever in Europe and if you like classic hard rock, you will be completely sold on this Canadian band that should have been much bigger than they are. But they are back together, that's good, and we are proud to have them at Time To Rock!

 

THE RODS TO REPLACE METAL CHURCH American, classic metal from the 80s, fronted by singer and guitarist David Feinstein - The Rods! Between 1967 and 1973, David Feinstein was in the band Elf with his cousin, Ronnie James Dio. David managed to quit the band before Elf became classic Rainbow and around 1980 he formed and drummer Carl Canedy THE RODS, which was a much harder band than the two previously mentioned. One can find similarities with both Saxon and Manowar. The band had a hiatus between 1986 and 2010, but has since the reunion been all the time active. In addition to David and Carl, the...

Regular campsite is already fully booked! The interest in this year's festival is greater than ever and the regular campsite is already fully booked! This applies to both caravans, mobile homes and tents. This then means that we will extend the campsite and make it twice as big as before. This means that those of you who book your places now end up in the new part of the campsite, but it is still very close to the festival area. The name of the new campsite will be CAMP EXTENSION. The fact that we are extending the campsite also means that we are extending the amenities. We...

Three new acts confirmed! We are slowly but surely approaching a full line-up and today we can present three more acts that are ready for Time To Rock Festival 5-8 July 2024. For 40 years, DORO has worked to cement herself as Germany's, and probably the world's, hard rock queen ##1. Doro started her musical career at home in Germany in smaller bands like Snakebite and Beast before she started singing in Warlock. Warlock released four records in the 80s, from "Burning the Witches" (1984) to "Triumph and Agony" (1989). This summer she will join us at Time To Rock and we think that is...

Hardcore Superstar confirmed! It's been a few years since the last time, so we thought it was about time again for this bunch of real rock stars! Hardcore Superstar was formed in 1997. Since the beginning, the Gothenburg band's permanent members have been singer Joakim Berg and bassist Martin Sandvik. Next year, Magnus "Adde" Andreasson celebrates 25 years on the drum stand, and already this year, guitarist Vic Zino, has his 15th anniversary in the band. Between 1998 and 2003 Hardcore Superstar released four records. In 2005, the band did a "Metallica" and released their self-titled and, coincidentally(?), black record. As a result, the...

Pretty Maids are back! PRETTY MAIDS (DK) If you grew up and were a "hard rocker" in the 80s, you obviously know Danish PRETTY MAIDS . In 1984, the band released their first full-length, "Red, Hot & Heavy" and who doesn't remember the title song and the opening "Back to Back" and others. A pure masterpiece! The debut was followed up by "Future World" in 1987, which sold over 300,000 copies. After the third full-length "Jump the Gun" (1990) the band split up, leaving only guitarist Ken Hammer and vocalist Ron Atkins at the helm. With a new drummer and bassist, the formidable record "Sin-Decade"...
