Biography

Me and the Heat is a German new wave band. They created one album named Game of Position. In the mid eighties they achieved a cult status in the Netherlands. They performed on the Pandorra festival where they became the revelation for that year. Influences were said to be Clock DVA and The Box.

According to the tourmanager: “Tom Mega spent some time in jail, but was still able to obtain heroin. He requested solitude confinement. That’’s where he taught himself to sing. He was a very energetic performer, comparable to Iggy Pop.”

It is not known if the singer (Tom Mega, aka Tom Meger) is still alive. He is last noted on the web in 2002 for a theater performance.

The second album was never created because they only wanted to sign with a major record company. Band members also kept their music teaching jobs and Tom Mega had an heroin addiction.

    Great band. The music sounds fantastic in 2011. Play it a lot lately. I had the album on vinyl, but the cd has bonustracks. Quite an addition if one knows that 'Game' was the only album. Tom Mega also had a band in Arnhem: Kasper Hauser. I even have a live cassette of it somewhere. Not on mp3. Will come soon. Again: great album. Would have worked with the band if it was to be continued at the time. The Mega solo performance at the Jacques Brel event in Paradiso was also unforgettable.
