Cold Water Flat was a trio consisting of members Paul Janovitz, Ted Silva and Paul Harding formed in 1990. The band signed to European label "Play It Again Sam", and recorded the album Listen in 1993. Cold Water Flat soon after signed a deal with MCA to release their self titled major label debut. This album featured the minor hitsingle "Magnetic North Pole". And yes, for those who wonder, Paul Janovitz is the younger brother of Bill Janovits (Buffalo Tom).
