This Is Not This Heat

This Is Not This Heat

Within their two albums and an EP This Heat perfected a strange and volatile new strain of avant-garde rock that time has proved to be massively influential, a blueprint for much that would follow: post-rock, math rock, homemade musique concrète, experimental electronics… Although widely considered to embody Post-Punk, they actually began performing their music in the early days of London’s punk era. Ahead of their time, their music sounds as startlingly original and relevant, live and on record, as the day it was created.

Exactly 40 years to the day of their first gig in 1976 the two surviving members (Charles Bullen and Charles Hayward) of the original three came together with a large group of collaborators to play under the project title of THIS IS NOT THIS HEAT. Selling out a two day residency at London’s Café Oto in a matter of hours the consensus was unanimous that all present had been witness to something of cultural significance. Flooded with invitations from around the world, 2017 saw THIS IS NOT THIS HEAT take to the road.

On March 20th and 21st 2019, Bullen, Hayward, and company bring THIS IS NOT THIS HEAT to Los Angeles.

“…It does feel like we’ve been witness to something special. A fine body of work has been brought to life with energy and vitality that seems improbable nearly 40 years after the fact.” –The Wire

“I get asked to play more music like This Heat, but to my knowledge there is no other music like This Heat.” –John Peel
