Cathedral bassist Leo Smee started a bass and drums duo under the moniker Chrome Hoof with his brother Milo at the turn of the millennium to celebrate their shared love of mid-seventies funk and disco. Like sequined pied pipers they recruited everywhere they played, building an army of multi instrumentalists, including a full horn and string section. You''ve most likely heard of their legendary live shows - A veritable orchestra of musicians decked out in futuristic monk''s robes kicking it like some unholy hybrid of Sun Ra, ESG, Goblin, Parliament/Funkadelic and Black Sabbath, complete with choreographed dancers, actors taking vaudeville interludes, and a twelve foot tall metallic ram dominating the dancefloor. Chrome Hoof have finally managed to compress all the manic energy, tight prog chops and disco-ball hedonism into the most unashamedly enjoyable record you''ll hear this year. Part dizzying instrumental mastery, part mind-buggering sci-fi fantasy, part big band ferocity - all incredible. The ''Hoof Are On The Rise! TRACKLISTING: 01. NORDIC CURSE 02. TONYTE 03. PRONOID 04.
