HOT CHIP

Alexis Taylor, Joe Goddard, Al Doyle, Owen Clarke and Felix Martin are the men behind this electropop Casiotone-hop group. They formed in 2000 and self–released records until they were signed in 2003. They released their debut album, "Coming on Strong," later stating that they wanted it to sound like a home-made version of the Beastie Boys' "Paul's Boutique."

In 2006 they released their second album, “The Warning” to great acclaim. The album was short-listed for The Mercury Prize. Two singles were released from the album and both “Over and Over” and “Boy from School” were well received.  In that same year Hot Chip were hired to provide music for the in-game stereo within the Sims.

Hot Chip make use of toy trumpets and kazoos to get their sound just right, but no laptops and no backing tracks.

Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor has provocatively boasted that he is "like Stevie Wonder, but can see things."

Recent festival appearances include Dour Festival, Glastonbury, Sónar, Benicassim, Electric Picnic, Bestival, Lovebox, the Reading and Leeds Festivals, the Summer Sundae festival and the Big Day Out and Splendor In The Grass (2007) in Australia. They released a DJ Kicks compilation in 2007, which included a new song called "My Piano", also released as a 12".

The band will release their third studio album, Made in the Dark, on February 4 2008. The first release out of it was "Shake a Fist" which was released as a limited one-sided 12" in September 2007, the first single will be "Ready For The Floor" in January 2008.

 

Seek and hide have previously brought Pendulum, Mylo and others to the Union

 


The party will take place in the student’s union in Mono kicking off at 10pm and lasting till 2.30am, with organizers expecting a sell-out.

Earn while you learn

Individuals, as well as employers, need to be concerned about their future. If they are not more productive than those in off shore locations, they will see their jobs off shored. It will not going be easy for adults given that young people are growing up with “crib side PC”. In addition, adults will have to be as good as or better than the kids off shore. What needs to be leveraged are the advantages provided by experience, cultural understanding and communication in tandem with contextually appropriate new skills…………
