In a way it is sort of funny that is has taken us to our 10th physical release before we got around to (re)introducing the world to HOT MESS. You see… if there were no Hot Mess, there wouldn’t be a Neon Doom. This little put-putting of a Website/Record Label/Digital Stew originally had a different home and was created as a way to introduce people to the music, art, shows, and sounds of robad pills, Louie Applesauce, and their collaboration.
Some how, when bringing together the intricate breakcore and drum and bass of robad pills with the noise and sound experimentation of Louie Applesauce, Hot Mess found the common ground of house music in all of its forms. From strictly hardware and live instrument tracks to sequencers and studio production, the boys of Hot Mess weaved wildly into whatever idea scattered across their brain.
As their ideas gained more and more focus, new names and projects started to bubble up and pick apart the splatter output of the original Hot Mess name. With High School Clicks, Muscle Boys, Ghoul Tooth, cauldrone, wizards, Electric Teeth, brrrapture, moth mouth, MOBB CREEP, etc.etc.etc. Hot Mess was reborn again and again and again.
But this collection comes from when the boys were just starting to work together again after a number of years (and a musical lifetime) apart.
From 2008-2010 Hot Mess were paving their own path four steps ahead of everyone else. By the time the world caught up… Hot Mess proper was over. These 13 tracks lead you down 77 minutes of hijinks and fun that are sure to keep the party going.
