Hot Club de Paris are a band from Liverpool, United Kingdom. They are signed to the London-based Moshi Moshi Records and released their debut album Drop It ‘Til It Pops in October 2006. The band have finished their second record and are releasing it in June 2008.

The band formed in early 2004 after Matthew and Paul met in 2003 working as temps at Chester Racecourse. It’s members were involved in other bands in the Liverpool music scene including street punkers Down and Outs and new wave popsters Victor FME.

Further to their shared love of American punk rock bands (Minutemen, Firehose, SST Records bands etc) they became interested in math rock and experimental indie bands which influenced their sound considerably. They signed to Moshi Moshi Records in 2005, and have since toured extensively around the world in support of their debut record.

They have been featured on a number of music-based TV shows in the UK including MTV2 and Channel 4 shows. Their record enjoyed airplay on BBC Radio1, BBC 6 Music and XFM, whose DJ John Kennedy has championed the band. Kennedy claimed that their debut album is ‘one of the best of 2006′.

2006/7 saw tours with Jamie T, Maxïmo Park and The Who as well as a number of shows at the 2007 SXSW music festival in Austin, TX. So far their tours have taken them through the UK, Italy, Belgium, Ireland, Spain, France, Sweden, Iceland, Germany, Switzerland, America, Holland and India.
