For a perspective on possible reasons for Hot's return
to the home fires, we turn to musicologist Pete River's recent
book "Bowin' Up on Rock 'n Roll Myths":
"Bohemian artist & commentator Hot Moth (sic) was very discouraged by
the lukewarm response to his production of "reverse-hip-hop"
artist Clay Bacon back in 1999. His whereabouts since
than have been as sketchily reported as ever.
It is known
that Hot left guitarist Slim Boggin's floss ranch in Montana
shortly after the first Bacon single
stalled (a country remake of Tag Team's
rap hit "Whoomp-There it Is") near the bottom of both the
country & pop charts.>>>
It was soon after that time that sightings began to pop up in
rural parts of western NY state."

Comments from prominent citizens attending the gala
American Idol event at Bemis Point:
"I'd know those wing-tips anywhere...that's definitely Hot
-Nigel Tuffnolle, Shoe Salesman
at Payless & part-time rock star
"That boy can run, but he can't hide forever" -Ralph
Fece, retired correctional officer from East Clintwood, Oh.
His amazing appetite for potato salad gave him away, even with the excellent disguise.
He almost ate the entire supply -D. Biggs, "World of
Potato Salad" vendor at the event.
"I did, I did, I did see a Monti-Hot" -chanted by several children
I haven't heard from The Hot One since we pulled his
"Whoomp" record from regular rotation back in 1999 for legal reasons.
If he's really at this event, I'd like to apologize in person -Bill
Baulgruber, program director for WURST, (The WURST FM), and a longtime
supporter of Hot's music
the hell he was, you could hardly get that fellow away from the
Warsteiner tent. Except every few minutes, he'd leave to wolf
down more potato salad next door . I wouldn't doubt he's got some god
awful gas by now -Sid Viscous ,
local dairy farmer
