Hot Chip announce Satellite Shows

"The ground started shaking moments into a performance by Hot Chip, a geeky British band known for their transcendent electronic performances. Boots, heels, and sneakers pounded the floor as the audience erupted into electronica-tinged dance moves and fist-pumping like it was 1997. " – Spin.com"


The media release says: "What do Brains, Cactus Jack, an art school student, a librarian and a nerdy bloke with a dodgy moustache have in common? Not much. Give them keyboards, synthesizers, percussion and line them up on a stage, and you have the Hot Chip live experience.


Hot Chip is Alexis Taylor (vocals/keyboard), Joe Goddard (beat master/vocals), Owen Clarke (Keyboards/guitar), Felix Martin (drums / MPC), Al Do It (guitar). Their astounding ability to write cracking pop tunes such as the immaculate summer hit 'Over and Over' from the equally brilliant breakthrough album 'The Warning' saw them nominated for the coveted Mercury Music Prize in 2006.


"This month, DJ-Kicks: Hot Chip hits the shelves which features a mix of some of their favourite music by luminaries including Ray Charles, Black Devil Disco Club, New Order, Joe Jackson and Etta James. In keeping with DJ-Kicks custom, the group also contributed a new and exclusive track of their own called My Piano, to the album."


HOT CHIP: not just the critics' choice, the people love them too! And stay tuned, with special guests still to be announced, these shows are sizing up to be this year's, well HOT ticket.
