Pushing the limits has been the musical credo for Hot Hot Heat from the very beginning. It was in the late 90's in the sleepy suburbs of Victoria, BC that vocalist and keyboardist Steve Bays first joined forces with drummer Paul Hawley and bassist Dustin Hawthorne to form the creative core of Hot Hot Heat. The group released a string of independently produced singles, EP's and their first full length album, the aggro-epic Scenes One Through Thirteen even as they began playing extensively, both locally and up and down the west coast. After pumping out another EP, Knock Knock Knock in the spring of 2002, they returned to the studio almost immediately with producer Jack Endino of Nirvana fame to begin work on a full-length album.
Cut in six days, Make Up The Breakdown and its hit singles "Bandages," "Talk To Me, Dance With Me" and "No, Not Now" earned the band critical raves and worldwide attention.|
It's a following sure to grow with Elevator. Featuring such catchy tunes as "Middle Of Nowhere," "Jingle Jangle," "Island Of The Honest Man" and the title track, Elevator is a fast ride to the top ranks of rock and roll from a band that has learned exactly how to push our buttons.
