Squirrel Nut Zippers
Hot
1996

Rock 'n' Roll Rule Number One: If you're going to name your album something like "Hot" or "Killer" or "Better Than Live From Budokan," you better have the music to back it up. Else you're going to get reviews like: "...leaves me cold..." or "...dead on arrival..." or "...where's Cheap Trick when you really need them..." Well, luckily for the Zippers, they've come through not only with a hugely popular sequel to their debut disc, but one that holds together thematically. "Hot" refers to the 20's-revival style of the band, but is equally apt in describing their favorite song topics: Hell and the devil. Don't ya just love things that work on more than one level?
