Ep. 048: Hot Water Music w/ Jason Black

By Mike Doyle

Hot Water Music is a punk rock band from Gainesville, Florida. The members of the band are Chuck Ragan, Chris Wollard (both lead vocals and guitar), Jason Black (bass), and George Rebelo (drums) first formed in 1993. Since then these guys have broken up, gotten back together, recorded albums, gone on a hiatus, got back together, made more records and so on. Make sure you check them out on their 25th Anniversary Tour CAUTION + NO DIVISON Full Album Shows and they also have a new EP coming soon. Thank you to Heath Midtown for the intro to Jason. Fun fact, the 2 of them played in Senses Fail together. I got Jason on the Phone and this is what we talked about: His stint with Heath Midtown in Senses Fail Seeing Def Leppard as a kid Trying to get George to like punk How did people like them when they started Casey Lee Morgan’s HWM poster No Idea Records Scott Sinclair’s artwork When did they start to gain a following Some Records The Split with Alkaline Trio Split What was it like when the scene shifted And a ton more Before we begin, this week I have a sponsor.
