Hot Water Music was a post-hardcore/punk rock band from Gainesville, Florida. The members of the band are Chuck Ragan, singer and guitar, Chris Wollard, singer and guitar, Jason Black, bass guitar, and George Rebelo, drums. HWM first formed in 1993. In 1996, after releasing two EPs and a full-length album, the band briefly disbanded, but soon reformed, announcing their continuation as Hot Water Music at the concert recorded for 'Live at the Hardback'. In late 2005, Hot Water Music stated they were going on a hiatus following Chuck Ragan's departure to care for his family. On May 13, 2006 however, the hiatus became permanent and Hot Water Music officially disbanded. The three remaining members have started a new project, 'The Draft'. Their first album is expected sometime in 2006.
The band's name was taken from the book by Charles Bukowski of the same name.
The band members have also participated in many side projects, mainly following the 'Gainesville Punk' musical style. The two most popular of these are 'Blacktop Cadence' and 'Rumbleseat'.
