Hot Chip

Biography

At the tender age of 7, Alexis Taylor began listening to Prince and dancing on his bed to the sounds of Dirty Mind and The Black Album, a habit which has continued into adult life. Meanwhile, Joe Goddard began heavily grazing on hip-hop records in the early 1990s, a diet which consolidated into an unusually passionate relationship with records by the Souls of Mischief and Madlib. The duo collided during an impromptu wrestling match in the school playground, and the result was 'Hot Chip'.
