Hot Actionホットアクション is the new band with lots of cold and dreamy synthlines and angry heartbreaking rhymes by Louis Roach ( AVOID, Whipped Cream Chargers, Pets With Pets etc.) and Zayd Thring Australia's Next Dreamboat (PETS WITH PETS, Ladydreams and a brief Lost Animal ) formed at MMW's Little Band's event not so long ago.
After being on the backburner in a casual releationship, we have decided to take this shit seriously now as of Sept 2016. After condensing many different projects in to a finely crafted two peice band heavy on the 80's inspired Synth lines and Cold Wave vibes intertwined with 90's hip hop sampling, themes and rhymes. Our little drugged out bastard of a cross bred, mixedrace raved wave of electronic pop jam has been moving fast since being legitimised as Hot Action and our first fiddle, singing to Trait Records in Australia and Supporting the likes of Alex Cameron and Lost Animal's album launches.
Our latest song Streetlight Rendezvous (Rapid Transit) written about the abundance of death that has been experienced over such a tumultuous life that is lead by inner city life long musicians and friends is an example of the serious nature and no bullshit approach (maybe a little bit of bullshit) to songwriting that has been adapted in to this new project.

Our rodeo is quite old and we don't need any google maps to find our way around the block. So we've decided to have a little Redidency to showcase our new stuff and sell some tapes.
2.3.17 We have V (Berlin / Melb)'who is someone that I wasn't aware of more than a week ago. It's all i've been listening now since. I don't know much about V other than the dark and deep synth's and heavy beats that accompany the catchy noise that formlates some amazing and brooding songs and music. They seem to be able to hold a conversation in German and French too. So, no bullshit. and V loves Cats! https://soundcloud.com/vlovescats
Heat Wave are also playing our first night upstairs. I didn't realise this was our friend Kalindy from Sydney and Her Boyfriend Kurt Eckhardt of Astral Skulls. Dead End Town is the nearly the perfect Synth Punk Pop Song paying homage to The Cramps and The Screamers and other early punk bands incorporating the future confuse box of analogue synths. https://soundcloud.com/heatwaveau
