2 Hot 2 Sweat

Three cool two-piece bands in the last couple of weeks - it must be the next big thing eh. The first two here, were The Ropes and My Gold Mask, from New York & Chicago, respectively; so today we're just a little closer to home with 2 Hot 2 Sweat who describe themselves as sounding like Wonky Electro Pop Garage Rock Shouty Weirdness, and I can't improve on that in seven words.

Maybe they're a kind of anti-Human League - cheapo drum sounds, willfully detuned synths, fuzzy guitar n all?; their music's lofitastically danceable & contagious, I'm certain of that.

From London, Matt Leuw and Mia Lane got together in 2007, have released two singles on NR ONE Records, grabbed some useful radio play from the likes of Tom Robinson, and played for the BBC Electric Proms on the John Peel night at Radio Merseyside... quite what they're doing on this teensy blog, I can't imagine... oh yes, it's so you lot can hear them too.

I have to love any song with the line "I think it must be karma that your arse is getting larger..."
