Having recently released their critically lauded LP Chrome Black Gold, Chrome Hoof beam down to London from outer-space with a special live show at brand new venue Oslo on January 23rd.
Joining the incendiary 11-piece disco-doom-funk orchestra is legendary drummer and one time member of Gong Charles Hayward who plays a live set plus DJ Lewis Rainsbury.
Contrary to speculation, the multi-faceted beast that was CHROME HOOF is not extinct. but merely lying dormant. The Ungulate is ready to emerge from the self-imposed hibernation cube and proclaim its right to exist!
CHROME HOOF has come along way since its inception in 2000. Having spread the gospel across Europe, headlining a multiple of festivals including a 21-piece version of the band at London's Barbican in 2010. For this 3rd full length album founding member Leo Smee has called upon some of the UK's most prolific musicians for this latest slab of music!
As well as the core members, into the drum-void stepped Alex Thomas (Air, Squarepusher) and the mic has been shared by long- time Hoof collaborator Chantal Brown with guests Shingai Shoniwa (Noisettes) and Jeff Walker (Carcass).
With the new line-up primed and ready, work began on the latest Hoof opus in September 2011. CHROME BLACK GOLD is CH's most ambitious release to date taking more than 18 months to pull together due to its no-compromises approach.
This is a band that always does things the way they should be done and doesn't quit until the Nitro vision is realised.
