Who's hot and who's not?

Funny how band names seem to go through trends of containing the same words. How many bands have there been with 'stereo' or 'super' somewhere in the name? Answers on a postcard to the usual address... 'Superstereo' - good name for a band that.

Current favourites seem to be 'Good' (Shoes, Books) and of course 'Hot' - apart from veterans Hot Hot Heat and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, we've now got Hot Chip, Hot Gossip (who disappointingly do not feature any lycra-clad dancing girls - showing my age here) and of course Hot Club de Paris, my favourite new band of the past twelve months (official - see my page).

They make brilliantly skewed pop, with tight barber-shop harmonies, crazy time signatures and lashings of chiming guitar, and their awesome debut album Drop It Til It Pops is currently available with a bonus CD of b-sides and the videos for their 3 singles. Bargain!
