The Hot Puppies are definitely hot shit, quite the buzz buzz buzz. In all honesty I went back and forth when I first heard this five piece band from the UK, I wasn’t sure if their style was music to my ears or not…But there is just something about their music that I can’t deny…The Hot Puppies literally draw from every genre, mixing them all together with the end result being some fantastic 50’s country punk rock genre of music that kicks some major ass! They of course are playing at BD Rileys/SXSW on March 15th then they fly to London for a couple of shows in April. Their debut album, Under The Crooked Moon is available here.

    This band had me hooked at “How come…”. Great pick!

    hehe good to hear you liked. This comment had me hooked from my e-mail subject line, “Mentok the mind-taker has left a comment…” ;-)

    Hmm… I can’t place it, but it reminds me a lot of some 80s band. Argh.

    Hello, heloo, hello, Dearest Rachel! I’ve been scarce for some time – apologies. Life got in the way… :-( Will you have me back?

    I love this choon! And I think the band Rich is searching for is perhaps The Motels; I found this track somewhat evocative of Only The Lonely. Whaddaya think??

    FiL?! I know us Armadillos may wander sometimes but you know of course I will always welcome you with open arms. :-) I can hear the resemblance indeed in The Motels (very 80’s).
    So now we will have to see what Rich says…(twiddles thumbs)
