Hot Water Music: Discography of the Moment

Hot Water Music is a punk band from Gainesville, Florida that formed in 1993. The band split up in 2005 but has since reunited. Hot Water Music is a band that although is not a very popular band in the mainstream sense, but they have influenced so many bands that it isn’t funny. In that respect, they remind me a lot of the Pixies. Not musically of course but in the fact that they are such a great band that has never really gotten its due, so to speak, but has been a catalyst for so many other good bands.

I was first exposed to HWM as result of a split that they did with Alkaline Trio back in 2002. I was never really a big fan. I really became a big fan of the band gradually. I have to imagine that they are probably not one of those bands that you love right away. They are, almost to a point, an acquired taste but I urge
anybody that has not heard this band to listen to them and let them seep into your pores the way they did mine.

One thing I find noteworthy of this band is that they have kept the same lineup since they got together. You can’t say that about too many bands these days and I thought that this was something worth mentioning.
