To begin with, on 6 Feb the Hoof and avant rockers Guapo are going to take part in a unique event at the ICA entitled Smoke. Full details can be found on the ICA website but here is a summary in the meantime:
Pump House Gallery and Implicasphere present a unique happening with live bands, DJs, smoky films, smoked delicacies and lots of smoke machines. Expect sonic and visual spectaculars from 10-piece glam death disco outfit Chrome Hoof and psychedelic compositions by Guapo. Among those spinning smoke-infused records will be DJ/producer Andrew Weatherall, Nick Stroud from JazznotJazz and Muscleheads.
Excitingly on 12 Feb Chrome Hoof will be playing at the Shockwaves NME awards show gig at Koko which will also feature headliners Simian Mobile Disco.
Also in the Chrome Hoof diary is a one off gig on March 21 at the Rich Mix in Bethnal Green The gig will feature performances from Chrome Hoof and the highly influential German experimental group Cluster and include a collaboration between the two. More news to follow on this soon.
And finally (for now...) we are a whisker away from confirming an event in connection with Marcus Coates about the demise of Elephant and Castle. This special (and rather unusual) event will be held at the end of May at the Coronet (which will be one of the only remaining landmarks in the area) and all we know at this stage is that the Hoof will be part of it!
Watch this space!
