The Heise Brothers used to be in Minneapolis garage/punk band Munkey Juice, they may still be, they donât seem quite sure. This record however is brothers Nelson (older) and Robert (younger), both twenty something, having their first bash at doing a beret and goatee folk rock thing. What a lot of it ends up sounding like is an unplugged Dinosaur Jr, particularly with Nelsonâs voice being like a slightly less whiny J Mascis. There are also touches of Paul Westerberg here and there, hardly surprising given the geography, and, less expected, a lot more reminders of Lou Reed and the Velvets, particularly with some of the vocal phrasing on tracks such as âOld Manâ. The record came out of a song Nelson wrote as a tribute to his recently passed Grandmother âAlma Marieâ, which is tucked away on track 15 at the end of the record (apart from a brief hidden track), though clearly heartfelt, its probably not the strongest song here. The record is built around âFigure Anything Outâ which crops up in three short and varied versions, spread throughout the record, and has an infectious Elliott Smith like chorus that really stays with you, âNamesâ, about former band mates, also has subtle hooks. âFor Meâ actually is quite rocky with fine lead guitar from fellow Munkey Juicer Joshua Stuckey, similarly on âOl Grey Underwearâ an ode to the joys of a long term relationship. Itâs a likable record and you can feel the good natured, slightly world weary, humour of the brothers coming through, an indication of which is that all the chords played on the record are illustrated on the CD inner, its called âListen and Learnâ¦â get it?- Americana UK 5/06
Born a Leo in New Concord, Ohio in 1977; Nelson Heise began his musicial career by avoiding piano and french horn lessons as an adolescent, only to find a love for rock 'n' roll and the guitar in his teenage years. In 1995 he formed the group Munkey Juice and MJ's Career spanned 11 years. Nelson also played in the bands Jackass, The Gidddyup Jesus and The Altergnats. Influenced heavily by The Velvet Underground, The Kinks, Pixies and Camper Van Beethoven he has been writing origanl material since the early days of MJ.
In 1980, another Heise was born in the sign of the Taurus. Robert Heise is the co-founding member of Munkey Juice, and Nelson's younger brother. Not intially inclined to music as much as his brother, Robert devoted much of his youth to athletics (which would come in handy given his stage performance with the Juice). In need of a bass player, Nelson recruited Robert to become the bass man for MJ, and thus the musicial union was born. Much like Dave Davies, Ray Davies younger brother of the Kinks, Robert's songwriting can be overshadowed by his older brother's, but don't take Robert's contributions lightly; he also has the gift of song.
LISTEN & LEARN with THE HEISE BROS. is the first release by the brothers under this name, check out the Munkey Juice link for more info on their past releases. LISTEN & LEARN is the folk rock band living inside The Heise Bros. The material on the album tends to be more personal and intimate. The album was inspired by the song "Alma Marie", which Nelson penned after the death of his grandmother, and this album pays tribute to her along many other family and friends that have impacted The Heise Bros. lives.
