Hot Water Music
Unlike other bands from the emerging early ‘90s punk scene in Gainesville, Hot Water Music offered lyrics that could’ve come from a Bukowski poem (and a band name that shares a title with a 1983 Bukowski book) yelled over dual guitars and intricate drum riffs. Reconciling jazz backgrounds with hardcore influences, bassist Jason Black and drummer George Rebelo bring a spritzy, kinetic feel to what otherwise would just be yell-along punk songs, while Chuck Ragan’s raspy voice was made for inspiring mosh pits.
