Formed at the tail end of 1996, The Embrooks (Alessandro Cozzi-Lepriguitar, vocals; Molebass, vocals; Lois Tozerdrums) were initially influenced by the moody, minor key mid-'60s US garage common to the New England area.
They quickly changed course towards the more aggressive sounds coming out of the UK and Europe in that same mid-'60s period, a transitional style which came to known as freakbeat. Here, the band found their true calling, and delivered 2 killer singles (If You Let Me Go, Max Picou and More Than Ever, Guerssen, both 1999) and their highest profile LP, Our New Day for legendary California label Bomp's Voxx imprint (2000). Numerous tours through the UK and Europe were undertaken, and they even found time to cross the pond into the US and Canada on a number of occasions, and appearing at such legendary events as the Wild Weekend, Las Vegas Grind, Cavestomp, Purple Weekend and many more besides. The follow-up LP, Yellow Glass Perspections (Munster, 2004) saw the band incorporating more psychedelic elements to their sound, but still very much rooted in the aggressive Mod-Rock that had served them well.
As external commitments became ever more time-consuming, the band amicably parted in mid-2005, but now they're back!! Strong as ever, a little wider round the waist and greyer around the gills (the 'Expanding Waistline Inevitable' as a friend was kind enough to point out!), but ready to knock your socks off with their brand new single, Nightmare b/w Helen (State Records).

What to expect when The Hoofe rides into your town? Tales of the dawn of the Bronze Age, of fabled, neighing creatures, and simple crustaceans. Your feet will move in mysterious ways, your hands will clap, your brains will be frazzled.

Some describe them as 'educational psych', others prefer 'polytechnic beat', still more as 'a seventies garage band'. There's certainly primeval drums, fuzz bass, lashings of guitar and synth noises from another planet.

Formed from a gang of friends from Folkestone, Hoofe members have played in groups including The Heliocentrics, The Priscillas, Chalet and Hyperglo. Their experience shows in an assured, phenomenal live show. Already stunning audiences in London, this year, the Hoofe canter on, with a series of limited edition, special single releases and their debut album.
