Consumer Guide Reviews:

Hot [Stiff, 1981]
An all-black ska band from Britain--they posed for the cover photo in a greenhouse. Unencumbered by message, concept, or apparent neurosis, the groove has more vim, muscle, get-up-and-go than the 2-Tone competition. Less interest, though. That's the thing about neurosis--it can really be interesting. B
