OVERVIEW

Red Hot + Bothered (also known as The Indie Rock Guide Book to Dating) is an anthology of the indie rock scene from the 1990s. The recording appeared as a pair of limited edition 10″ EP recordings bundled with limited edition fanzines, spoofing dating guides to promote safer sex, with original art and articles by a number of underground music and visual artists.  The album was a low fi follow up to the smash “No Alternative” and eventually appeared on CD with a cover by artist Christian Schumann.

Accompanying the frist of two 10-inch EPs (released on Kinetic Records) is the Indie Rock Guide to Dating.
