Album Review

Hot Hot Heat's frantic and punky style created a buzz as soon as the band emerged out of Victoria, Canada's flourishing scene. Their Knock Knock Knock CD quickly turned heads. It starts off with the intense "Le Le Low." The addition of piano on "5 Times out of 100" adds a calm gracefulness to the disc. Keyboards are mixed with synthesizer on the third track, "Have a Good Sleep." Steve Bays' voice makes him an ideal punk rock vocalist. His voice is brash, as it rises over the chaotic instrumentation, especially on "Touch You Touch You." Things slow down on the beginning of the disc's final track, "More for Show."

Bays adds keyboards, while Dante DeCaro performs on guitar, Paul Hawley on drums, and Dustin Hawthorne on bass.
