Heat Generation is the second album and first studio album from The Radiators.


Four years after they had formed, and a year after the release of their first album, The Radiators entered the studio for the first time to create Heat Generation. The album failed to make much of a splash, and The Radiators gave up album-making for five years, until they were signed to Epic Records.
