Having graced the stage of the inaugural Offset Festival back in 2008, the organisers decided it was probably time they invited Chrome Hoof back, this time to the main stage. Yesterday saw the 22 legged disco-prog space travellers set down their cosmic spacecraft in the woodlands of Hainault to show each and every other band how to really put on a show. Ripping through tracks off their latest and greatest album Crush Depth, including a storming “Crystalline” and an inhumanly heavy “Third Sun Descendant”, they inspired many people down the front to throw some frankly bizarre shapes while people at the back were hypnotised by the shapes being thrown by shamanic front woman Lola. Ending with the always stunning “Tonyte”, on Sunday the hipsters of Hainault had no idea what just hit them.
Check out more photos on the Offset Festival web site.
Crush Depth and other Chrome Hoof goodies are available from our web shop.
Tonight is the night that Chrome Hoof take over east London when they launch their second album, Crush Depth, at Hackney’s Bocking Street Warehouse. A spectacular evening is planned, with a very special HUGE SURPRISE too! For one night and one night only this huge warehouse will be transformed into the Chrome Hoof space station where you will be taken on an inter-planetary voyage of discovery through space, time and music.
