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.
We are well into Summer now, which can only mean one thing: festivals! And Chrome Hoof will be hitting plenty of them fresh off the back of their intergalacticaly awesome new album Crush Depth. Get yourself along to one of these and experience the brilliance that is Chrome Hoof live.

Music Lovers! Summer is always a quiet time in Musicland… everyone is too busy getting out of their skull at big festivals to bother with new releases. But the mailorder elves of Southern are slaving away as hard as ever. We bring you some exciting news on new releases this month from Yob, Boris and Dead Raven Choir. But that’s not all! We’ve also been having a good, old (belated) Spring clean and we have dug up a veritable treasure chest of out-of-stock rarities, relics and some little pieces of outsider music history to put a smile on everyone’s face! Read on!
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.
