An expanded remaster of the first album by Factory funk outfit Swamp Children, who later mutated into latin jazz combo Kalima.
Swamp Children formed in Manchester in 1980 around core members Ann Quigley (vocals), Tony Quigley (sax and bass), John Kirkham (guitar), Ceri Evans (keyboards and bass), Cliff Saffer (sax) and Martin Moscrop (drums). While their close association with fellow A Certain Ratio lead some to assume that Swamp Children were a splinter group, Swamp Children pursued a more latin, bossa nova and jazz tinged agenda, and soon forged their own identity.
So Hot was originally released by both Factory (Fact 70) and Factory Benelux (FBN 21) in October 1982. Deemed an album of the year by Melody Maker, it also earned a 5 Star rating from the Virgin Rock Yearbook. The six bonus tracks include both their earlier 12" EPs on Factory. Little Voices was produced by ACR frontman Simon Topping at Cabaret Voltaire's famed Western Works studio in March 1981, while Taste What's Rhythm includes You've Got Me Beat and super-slinky Softly Saying Goodbye.
