Chrome Hoof photographed by Steve Bliss. How to describe London’s Chrome Hoof? A difficult proposition but that hasn’t stopped people trying. The BBC labels them a “10+ piece glam clad death disco outfit” which isn’t a bad start. Their record label offers more detail: Cathedral bassist Leo Smee started a bass and drums duo under […]

Suspiria: Jessica Harper and a bird with crystal plumage. For this year’s Halloween playlist I’ve let Mark Pilkington from Strange Attractor make the selection.
