I'm Hot Mont's long lost cousin
,Luke W. Mont! We were close when younger but I haven't seen
him in 20 years.Thanks for creating this forum for our
memories & yes , I do know where Mont is & what
he's doing with his life. I have talked on phone to him this
year but he & I agreed not to speak out right now.
sorry! Only can say that it does have to do with "wing
tips , a three piece suit & potato salad"
I spoke with the Hot one just
recently and he advised me that he is holding a top position
with the federal gub'mint, of course, the gub'mint don't know
that he be who he be. I think he's gathering material for an
expose' but Mont wouldn't commit himself....as usual.
I have copies of "Fuel on the Hill"
and "Mont Goes Mellow" on 12" vinyl what' are they worth? (a little
scratchy but covers ok) Also have the poster in ok shape
A Fan in
I have never even heard of Hot
Mont. I've lived in Cleveland Oh. my whole life & I remember
many bands from the seventies but not Hot Mont.
Where in Ohio did he play? What
Hot Mont editor
Hot Mont rarely
performed as "Hot Mont" in the Ohio & Michigan
area..the band's live name was "Argus" for a while ,
changed to"Big Ball o' Rock"...
maybe you remember those bands?
I remember seeing Hot
Mont in Omaha in the mid 70's -never had any of his records, but I'd
love to get his greatest hits cd
-Bob from Omaha
Rumor has it that Hot Mont is coming
out of retirement from living with a group of pseudo
-survivilists(most of them didn't survive) the album will be called:
MONT-e-Zumas Revenge!!!!! features songs "I'm explodin, wheres
the Imodin", "One Mo' Night in the Shithouse", "Hermann Hesse, Hes
the Bestta", and more. Will keep you posted.

I'm sick of these
imposters...I'd be willing to meet with the "Hot Mont Society 2000"

Hey..Hey..Hey..Hey....Well..Well..nice site...Let's hope
Doc's forgotten more than he remembers...but I do wonder what ever
happened to that "Illustrious" one...hmmm...best not kick a sleepin'
around the corner from John's mom
As you know I am quite familiar
with the Hot Mont saga and I am a personal friend of his. I am
flabbergasted that you have not seen fit to put in a page for the
further misadventures of "Victuals", "Rivethead", "Charge Band" or
the ever mysterious and always
Perhaps a combined effort for all?
Aquainted with you since our youth in the Choc Shop, I know that
these tales with enthrall your world wide audience. Keep droppin'

Speaking about Mont, he has
released a introspective collection of
politically charged classical based
music dealing with the themes of
Thomas Jefferson titled "Monties-Cello"
some cuts are " I wrote the
Constitution during my morning Constitutional",
"I shot the Heretic", inspired by his
Jamaican Mistress, "Very,Very, Very,
Superstitious", written while visiting
Salem, Mass, and "Swing Low, Sweet
Charlotte" about his promiscuous
slave, Charlotte the harlot.
Hot Mont sounds like an
interesting person. I would like to see him run for public office,
he'd really clean up this country!

Was down around the back area of
Fredrick County, Maryland this past July. While there heard tales of
some guy a few years back that was running some kinda training
facility. He went by the name of H. P. Mont. According to the
natives, this guy was running some type of paramilitary religious
monk school, preparing for the war that he claimed was coming in
this country. He claimed killing the wicked and saving the good was
his calling from higher up and teaching others how to do this was to
be his way of helping save this great country. Wonder if it was your

-sounds a little out of character for the Mont we
is a fellow with a commune here in Montana not far from the West
Yellowstone entrance to the park .He's known locally as an eccentric
philosopher type & goes by name H.P. Mont.
One of the
main influences on my guitar style starting out was was H.M.'s first
guitarist Slim Boggins. I loved that mellow fuzz
Comments: Hey - what about Illustrious
P. Mangler anyway ?? I say kick the sleeping dog - is it possible
that he would have some Hot Mont posters or photos from the early
years ??? FIND THE ILLUSTRIOUS ONE !!!
The last I saw of him, he was wolfing
down a platter o'pizza at Patty O'Malligan's Irish Pizzeria in Colt
Station between handfulls of raisins from the never-empty "bucket
o'raisins". Rumor has it that cabbage and radishes are his favorite
toppings. When not lopping huge helpings of the disgusting stuff in
a fit of rage over his lapsing musical career, it's been said he can
be found down at Stack's getting drunk out of his gourd and
screaming as to the whereabouts of his old friends. Go
I saw the man himself, Mont a
few years ago in the Erie area! He was talking with another rather
mysterious man I heard him call Monty. There was a rumour that he
was a younger brother of Mont.
I tried to non-chanlantly eavesdrop on
the conversation and I over heard the man called Monty mention a
long lost 16 track called "Mont the Hoopla" which he going to sell
in Venezuela for some big dough!
I once saw Mont perform in a barn in
Sherman, N.Y. with a really bad band called J.B.Red.He was simply
fabulous and I know it was him that I saw. I wish I'd a had enough
sense to run home and get a scratched copy of "Fuel on the Hill' for
him to autograph, but alas.
Lived with Mont in "The Gulley" back
in the summer of 73.
I was just there to bum smokes, but
Mont and Muggles Mootas
were on the lam cuz of a botched
clean-up job they did at Jiffy
(a real mess!!). It was a heady time
(i.e., " there was music
in the cafes at night and revolution
in the air!!!"). It was
then that Mont penned the first draft
of what would later become
the foundation of his manifesto -
"Wolf Wagon Escape From Bull's Dam".
It was pure cosmic-stream shit man,
right from the heart of Mechanic
Street, but we all thought it was real
genius. Wrote his "Mud-Rock
Chronicles" out there that summer too.
Some may remember, "Eat Me I'm
a Cookie", or "Ry-chick Up You House".
That's the year J.P. Bar-key
turned informer. Mont fled to the
Robinson Street Haven for awhile, but
they couldn't hold him (it was not a
home for wayward drunks ya know!)
Hey man, gotta smoke I can
ad a run in with a fellow calling
himself "Illustrious" who fits your description not too long ago.
His vintage Camaro was broken down on PCH just south of Ventura.
Wearing a fake leather jacket . I stopped I'm a 18 wheeler driver
to give him some help & he ended up practically ripping my head
Started out civil, then he turned
mean, reminded me of Joe Pesci. He said that he used to be
involved in the music industry in the seventies, but hey, who isn't
in SoCal. Is this the man?
Bring on the Tamontley sauce! I like
You guys are pulling my leg ,
Comments: To Unknown 18
The guy you picked up was
definitely Illustrious. The key clue was the
fake leather coat. He used to buy'em
by the car load, it was one of his
trademarks and they were actually made
of genuine naugahyde.
The man had a nasally voice and
was always heard to be sayin' "Bite my
ass!" and also "I ain't got the money
split up yet, so piss off!"
There is no doubt that Illus is
in California, I just spoke with PEG
last week, if you know Illus, you'll
know who PEG is, anyway she states for
the record that that's where he is and
also his one and only son Matt has
joined him since escaping from
PEG wouldn't tell me where he is
exactly, no doubt because he still
owes us guys in Victuals our last
split from the Sherman Public Hall, she's
still loyal to him and this is all for
another time and story.
And, speaking of Hot Mont, and
who doesn't? I haven't seen Mont in a
while though I did see one of his
closest associates, "Queenie" King (Rheem
combo organist for Victuals) at our
gig on Saturday the 3rd of Feb at the
Galley (formerly the world renowned
"Stack's). "Queenie" and I had a nice
long talk about the old days and Mont
naturally came up in the conversation.
"Queenie" remains in close contact
with the Hot One and advised me that he
is alive and well and actually wants
to golf with the guys again even after
the surgical replacement of his knees.
Also heard an interesting rumor that
Mont has the homestead up for
sale...boy, if those walls could talk!
Take care and when I hear more,
I'll keep ya posted.
Comments: You're too
I think Ilustrous lives in my
apartment complex he's a little man with a big mouth. I like to move
out he makes me so mad
this is to the guys that are working to repair the songs from old
tapes I have an good original copy of a Hot Mont album.
what will you pay for it?
see the Hot Mont revival is full swing with all the boys from back
home. What a travesty!!! All those great memories and yet the HOT
one refuses to show himself to the world... Well, I always thought
he was just a tad over dramatic... and this is probably one of his
grand standing approaches... I know he knows everyone is looking for
him...What a Freakin' Jerk...if ya see him ask him about the college
woods...hogsback...Findley Lake...the Wolf Wagon trip to
Jamestown..some really good memories...
know Illustrous personally but have not seen him in 20
years. I also would like to know where he is. He owes me 20 bucks.
think I may have experienced that tribute band mentioned in the
article called Elvis-Beyond Belief.If it's them, they sucked! Did
the singer use a stage name something like"Hotiss Montly" like an
Elvis Presley takeoff? And did they play in central West Virginia?
HotMont.Hot Mont...Hot Mont ...what about
Awrite you girls - When any o youse guys find that HotMont
character, call me. He still owes me two bars of soap. That's

Regarding Roy Ree Don Dello and the Hawaiian
they became passe'.
broke up around 1979 after Roy and his brother Willie(the original
Don't gimme no shit twins) had a falling out over the direction
their music was taking. Sound phamiliar? Roy, not one to be takin'
no shit, has never returned to music and Willie, whom I spoke with
at length about a month ago, is still trying to play guitar. Trying
to play guitar? Yep, when the band broke up they were in Brazil
after being deported from Italy, reputedly on orders from the CIA
station chief in Milan and that's a whole other story, the Federales
realized that Willie wuz who he wuz and a little import/export
matter that had never been properly settled from years before reared
it's ugly head. Brazilian authorities held Willie for a period of
time and not in the local Hilton. Willie (the other half of the
original don't gimme no shit twins) didn't take any shit from the
the Brazilians and managed to flee the country and is the subject of
bitter extradition proceedings to this day.
Comments: We're catching on to this Hot Mont thing but
I'm not sure of that e-e-erphy-oh thing. Could it be part of the
here's the scoop!! Mont's original lineup appeared Thursday night at
a small eskimo bar near Moosejaw, that's in Canada by the way.
Pictures from this & other shows have been smuggled out of the
Great White North & will appear on webpages within a short
trime. Mont has stated in interviews that he is doing an "Arctic
Circle Tour" this summer. The reason for all of this is that nobody
knows who the hell he really is up here, & if all goes well...he
may bring the band south. I'll tell ya boys & girls, these guys
can still rock the casbah, er, igloo that is! Stay tuned for more"
Yoo-goff-'mek-hot'-78 (I saw "Hot Monti" in 78)
It was a warm
summer day in 78 as I was fishing for some kosher
yonder in the North Bay of Canada when a puddle-jumping plane
by my boat.
Some lad stepped out of the plane onto the floatation and
me how the
fishing was. Before I could answer a lady stepped out of the plane
and said, "My name is Icecat Sally and me and the Mont have been
trying to get some "gigs" up here in the Arctic Circle." She seemed
quite gregarious,but he just kind of smiled.
Me being a
Rabbi and all, I said, "Hey! Shalom! I got a whole fishing tackle
box full of "jigs" if you are after Yellow Pike like I am." They
started laughing, jumped back in the plane and flew off. They said
they were heading south to Florida.
returned to shore and told some fellow fishermen about the
explained the difference between a gig and a jig. I was so
wondered how those kids made out. I was glad to hear Hot
finally got a
tour at the Arctic circle. Go Hot Monti! Do you think Icecat Sally
is still with him?
(editor's note: could "Icecat Sally"
be another name for Analie?)
I might be the only person in Alaska that kind of knows of Hot
Monti.I grew up in the western NY state. Is his band willing to come
to Fairbanks? We can throw a wild party
when illus used to come into the clubs in Atlanta with Hot
and all the
"groupies" would just drool over him. I remember one of

no one has heard or seen him since touring with Victory at

there is an eminent need for the re-release of Mont Rushmore to

pure calculated act of vengence for those that died as a result of a
violation we, as a people, should not and will not ever forget. Let

extremely irksome that some people think my life and my thoughts are
nothing but fodder for rank humor... I remember O'Malligan's with a
fondness only meant for the dear friends that they were... Don't
tell me they never existed... and as for my music, I put it where I
wanted it... away from you non-believers who couldn''t commit to a
