Album Notes
Hot Ham & Cheese utilize a loud, stripped-down, raw and energetic sound to drive lyrics that discuss the finer things in life…partying, dirty chicks, stupid societal issues, standing up for what you believe in, and of course, rebellion!!!

The band began in February 2005 when Robby Mitchell (Drums)and Charlie (Guitar/Vox) finally got together for a jam session after knowing each other for nearly 10 years. After recording some demos and playing a few live shows as a duo, the guys enlisted Louie Styx (Bass) at the suggestion of a friend and went into Track_Six_Studios in July 2005 to begin work on their debut e.p. Since then, the band has been unstoppable playing numerous live shows while continuing to write new music. They are signed to Cleveland indie label Jib Machine Records and will release their self-titled e.p. on 5/2/2006.

Cool Cleveland gets a taste of Hot Ham * Cheese
Local alt-rock trio Hot Ham & Cheese offer a self-described “strange mixture” of many different musical styles; their kitchen sink philosophy on creative songwriting recalls everything from punk and the apocalyptic dirge of Black Sabbath, Melvins and Soundgarden, to avant rockers Primus/Sausage, swirling post-psychedelia and even a pinch of 311 for good measure. Edgy, but never sloppy, the group seems to dig that rebellious, lo-fi sound.

HH&C began in February 2005 when longtime acquaintances Robby Mitchell (drums) and Charlie (guitars/vocals) decided to get together and jam, playing a few live shows as a duo. Louie Styx (bass) was added to the group and by that summer, the trio had enough material for their self-titled debut EP – released on Cleveland indie label Jib Machine Records. While none of the three have the chops of a Les Claypool, songs like “Cocaine Billy” and “Pleasantly Insane” are cut from the Primus/Sausage cloth; the remaining four tracks on Hot Ham & Cheese are something of an angular, alt-rock WYSIWYG, e.g., perfect programming for “extreme radio” stations across the country.

The group is gearing up to go back into the studio, hot off creating an album last winter for the RPM Challenge. The contest pushed the act to record an album in 28 days. They came up with a 10-track, 35 minute effort called beta – something of an official “bootleg” for the band – recorded entirely on a 4-track at their practice space. The thought is that some of the resulting work will end up on the follow-up to Hot Ham & Cheese, due to start recording next month (July 2007) as a full-length. If what we’ve heard to date is any indication, the band’s next effort should be even better than the first.
