THE DOITS: This is Rocket Science (@) vbr

The story of The Doits began in the late '70s in Skellefte�, the "capital of pop" in north Sweden, where the two brothers Altay and David Sagesen were born and raised. They didn't like the taste of the mainstream pop that they grew up with so, by the time they formed their own band, they had developed an appetite for the heavier flavours of rock music and started looking for inspiration on the other side of the Atlantic.
It is fair to say that, out of the various bands that The Doits have been influenced by, The Heartbreakers are probably their most significant sources. Unlike many bands, The Doits don't tend to lean towards either Johnny Thunder OR Tom Petty but, instead, draw their inspiration from both ends of the musical spectrum. While this may be unusual, or perhaps a great and original concept, one should rest assured that this is only intended as an homage. In 2004 The Doits signed to Wild Kingdom, one of Sweden's leading independent labels, and recorded their debut album "This Is Rocket Science" in the small studio UAE Magnetophone in Stockholm together with engineer Tomas "Judas" Hedblom. The album was then mixed by Nick Royale (Hellacopters/Solution) in Atlantis studio in Stockholm. When the album was released in December 2004, it received an overwhelmingly positive response. In the new year, the band followed this up this success with an extensive tour, giving them the opportunity to reach out to a wider audience while demonstrating their ability as a live act. >>> continue to official HP.
