December 2 street date. Hot Hot Heat's classic debut album, filled with smart, energetic, dance-punk hits, returns to vinyl with this fully remastered limited LP edition. AllMusic called the album "an addictive, densely packed pop gem that ranks among 2002's best albums", and Pitchfork agreed, including it on their list of the best albums of 2002. Following closely on the heels of their critically-acclaimed "Knock Knock Knock" EP, "Make Up the Breakdown" is Hot Hot Heat's first full-length, recorded with Jack Endino at Vancouver's Mushroom Studios (with engineering help from Chris Walla of Death Cab for Cutie). Hot Hot Heat (along with peers like Radio 4 and The Rapture) blended angular post-punk twitch with danceable pop, effectively (and finally) persuading white dopes on punk to get on the good foot in the early 2000s.
