Chrome Hoof will be playing OFF FESTIVAL on Aug 5th - it's an awesome lineup this year. In addition to our set, we will be performing a live score to Andrzej Kondratiuk’s Hydrozagadka.
"Chrome Hoof - "Hydrozagadka" (GB)
We’ve finished this year’s new and improved edition of OFF Club (featuring Barn Owl, A Hawk And A Hacksaw, and Tim Hecker performing the music to films by Wilhelm Sasnal, Sergei Parajanov, and Werner Herzog), and we’re transplanting the idea into the OFF Festival! This time we’ve got something truly powerful in store for you: Andrzej Kondratiuk’s Hydrozagadka — featuring Ace, Poland’s first superhero, on the trail of Doctor Spot and other evil villains — will be screened with a new soundtrack arranged and performed by the UK’s Chrome Hoof. So what should you be expecting? Everything, really! Founded by the bassist of Cathedral, this orchestra combines funk, disco, metal, and jazz into a unique and colorful variety of futuresque music."
Really looking forward to it - and I'm determined to make it to as much of Connan Mockasin, Kim Gordon, Battles and Swans as possible! Shame about missing Iggy Pop & The Stooges who are playing the previous night.
