The Hot Sprockets are five brothers who came together with a shared love of rock n' roll music, the music that is haunted by the ghosts of rhythm & blues. Take the good-time revolutionary spirit of MC5, simmer it down to the sounds of bittersweet soul yearnings, add some rough-edged Jon Spencer blues explosion and you are beginning to taste the cosmic temptation that is The Hot Sprockets.
After movin' and shakin' the Irish music scene to its core with their debut record "Honeyskippin'". 2014 sees the band unleash their sophomore album "Brother Nature", a catchy, soul cryin', rock n’ roll record that will keep you going back for more. “Brother Nature” was recorded in Grouse Lodge, Windmill lane & Orphan Studios, it was produced by Gavin Glass and mixed by Declan Gaffney(U2) & Dougal Lott(Ray Davies).
