Since its inception in 1976, Chrome has been breaking sonic barriers and
pioneering in multiple sub-genres including psychedelic punk, art rock, avant
punk, industrial, electronic rock, and space rock, to name a few.
Chrome is also the bridge between rocks cutting edge such as the psychedelic
noise of the late 60s, the art-glam of Eno, Bowie, Hammil, the postmodern cool
of Neu! Kraftwerk etc and the attitude and ethos of punk and its spawn.
Helios Creed, the iconic frontman and guitarist is back with a vengeance and a
new powerful Chrome line-up whose members have been in incarnations of
Damned, Stranglers, Sex Pistols, Hawkwind, James White & the Blacks,
Farflung, and others across the board to the Beatles, and into the world of
performance /media art.
Chrome fans include NIN, Ministry, Butthole Surfers, Sonic Youth, Nirvana,
MGMT and many more.
Chrome has just released Half Machine from the Sun, the Lost Tracks from
'79-'80, an album of never before released tracks from the 1979 Half Machine
Lip Moves to the 1980 Red Exposure sessions.
It's garnered rave reviews, as many consider this the peak (pun intended)
period. But this is no retro band!
2014 also sees the release of the brand new and arguably best ever Chrome
album: FEEL IT LIKE A SCIENTIST, whose single Prophecy has been received
with the same fanfare. This is the 38th release for Helios Creed whose prolific
output as a solo artist and with Chrome has influenced all of the major of post
modern rock movements, from cold wave, to new wave, industrial, noise rock
Innovative, relevant, and groundbreaking, Chrome is deserved of their
legendary underground status. Still wildly untamed, still pushing the limits, still
drenched in acid and still in your face!
