Okay, Peter, since you asked:

"Hot Antic" is a slangy translation of "Haute Antique", which is in turn 
loosely translated into English as "old style", or maybe "old fashioned", or, if 
you will,  "traditional".

As for the denim coveralls:  the band is mostly from Nimes, France, a little 
town known mainly as the birthplace of some very strong cloth, "serge de 
Nimes" - cloth from Nimes.  That cloth made great pants, called denims.  So....you 
got it.

I just happened to remember....

Best regards, Ben Fowlkes
