Hot and Bothered

Breaking from the mold of prefabricated punk, Hot Water Music dares to be smart.

"Normal" might mean not having a hit on the radio, or even having limited recognition outside a certain fan base. But that's okay with Black. Especially in the upside-down world of the music business, where getting a hit often means creative death, Black would prefer to labor in relative obscurity -- and be able to do so for many years to come.

"I don't want [a hit], because I know we won't have two," he says. "I'd rather never have any and just be able to do this for a much longer period of time.

Not your average boys: Hot Water Music has broken big but maintained its punk edge.
