I first heard of The Real Heat in Fact magazine and i thought they looked like a shocking Pussycat dolls cover band. They do look like cartoon people but some of their tunes aren't that bad. Their cover of The Teenagers 'No Love' is top and 'Stand and Deliver' sounds like Prince covering Le Chic.
Here are some clips from their live visuals. Pretty garish but that's the point, i think. Not sure whether these girls are comic geniuses or just mega confused. Probably a bit of both.
