Description

On our recent trip to England, we found a cozy hallway in the back of London’s Cafe Oto to sit down with living legends Charles Bullen & Charles Hayward of This Heat. Over the course of the conversation, LITA's Matt Sullivan talks with C & C about their music, legacy, the formation of This Is Not This Heat, as well as what's currently on their turntables.


For folks in the USA, a miracle will soon be hitting our shores – C & C will be performing This Is Not This Heat. These shows will mark the first ever US performances for both C & C in any incarnation. Hallelujah! Tour dates below.


Formed in Brixton, a multicultural, and – at the time – down-at-heel part of south London, This Heat were born into a music scene in rapid flux, first thanks to the punk explosion and then via new wave and its myriad offshoots into pop, rock and art-rock. But while many sought to apply punk attitude to chart-friendly sounds, This Heat were concocting some of the most experimental ideas ever committed to tape, taking influence from musique concrète, krautrock, the burgeoning industrial scene and even the dub reggae blasting out in their home borough.
