Heltir was born in 1987 in San Francisco, California as a solo noise project that Rozz did concurrently with Premature Ejaculation, and which he continued until his death. The first 3 recordings were written, recorded, and produced solely by Rozz himself and were released only on cassette, on the now defunct Happiest Place On Earth Label. (These titles are currently unavailable). In 1994 Rozz began working on the "Neue Sachlichkeit" CD. Rozz wrote and arranged all the loops and sound material as usual but this time included guest contributors.
