Hot Pants is one of the numerous groups involving the French/Latin singer-songwriter Manu Chao (Mano Negra)and his cousin, drummer Santi. As with all of Chao’s music, the group had many influences, most notably The Clash, which contributed to their rockabilly sound. The group sang in English and Spanish. The group released a demo tape in 1984 entitles “Mala Vida,” and in 1985 they released a 45 with the single “So many nites” (and B-side “Lover Alone”). They released a full length album entitled Loco Mosquito in 1986, which was rereleased in 2000.

The members of the group were:
Manu Chao : guitar/vocals
Pascal Borgne : guitar
Jean-Marc : bass guitar
Santiago Cassariego : drums

    There's also a live album entitled "Besançon 1985 - Enregistrement Public" with the mention "not for sale, only for fans" on the cover ;p

    EPs Love Laura, Don't Say & Un-healthy Depths have nothing to do with the band Hot Pants... They are pulished by Hot Pants label which is not the same!

    The albums around Loco-Mosquito are NOT from the Hot Pants band... maybe some kind of mix up.
