I've redesigned the first part of the article but unfortunately my english isn't the best (I'm not an english-speaking person). Please correct my mistakes and edit some new parts :) 23:11, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

Joe Goddard merge with Hot Chip[edit]

  • Certianly right now there is not enough material to warrent an independent article for Joe Goddard so i agree that it should be merged with Hot Chip seeing as how the information present can be easily integrated into Hot Chip's history section. --(chubbstar) 04:55, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

Outback Steakhouse[edit]

This may be a sacrilegious quesiton, but did Hot Chip cut an Outback Steakhouse radio jingle? If not, the sound is so similar that it's worth noting that an ad exec somewhere said, "we need this to sound like Hot Chip."--Jeffauxier 04:11, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Are you confusing Hot Chip and Of Montreal? 16:49, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

"Bedroom Neptunes"[edit]

as much as I love the description of HC as "bedroom Neptunes," the review cited actually names Wikipedia as the originator of that phrase. if so, it's not exactly proper to say "they have been described as _____" without an external source. --Inarcadiaego 09:04, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Crap Kraft Dinner[edit]

Is the word 'Kraft' a reference to Kraftwerk or Kraft food? Answer me. --JP 18:08, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

Do Kraftwerk make food? Secretlondon 00:45, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
Of course not! Robots don't need to eat! NVSBLmonster (talk) 14:50, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
"Kraft Dinner" is what Kraft Mac and Cheese is called in the rest of the world. BBnet3000 (talk) 01:57, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Early gigs[edit]

Why is this section needed? I think it should be removed, there is nothing special about this gig. PlazzTT 21:58, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Agreed, it doesn't add anything to the article and is completely irrelevent. Plum743 02:41, 18 February 2007 (UTC)


The tone of this is wrong - it reads like a pop mag not an encyclopedia. We don't need all the band member trivia and we need more on their sound, influences etc.

I agree - it is unnecessary.Digestion 16:24, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
totally agree, it just needs some help Sexyorge 14:37, 20 June 2007 (UTC)
I removed a bunch of personal information about the members and unsourced statements. The original authors can feel free to add the information again if they can source it. Digestion 20:47, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Math Rock[edit]

Have a look at Math Rock - could Hot Chip fall under that genre? Welshleprechaun (talk) 00:45, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

No. Plus you'd need to find someone to source it from. Plum743 (talk) 01:53, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa[edit]

They covered Vampire Weekend's Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa with Peter Gabriel. Although it is not a single I think it is worth mentioning, no? Magical Mackenzie (talk) 21:59, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

One Life Stand release date[edit]

The release date says February the first, and is unsourced, whereas the article for the album itself says the eighth, and is sourced. Shouldn't this article be changed to reflect the album article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:29, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Joe Goddard Solo Project Album[edit]

How should i go about with Joe Goddard's solo project - His album, Harvest Festival has been released and reviewed by several reputable music review sites pitchfork... nme and the guardian Should i make a section on this article, or make him his own article (removing the redirect to here)? MrMacMan Talk 08:38, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

I'd say go for it and make a new article about him. Plum743 (talk) 07:33, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Sarah Jones and 2012 Tour[edit]

I just attended the first night of their 2012 show starting in the US and, as listed on their website via twitter she was not able to secure a visa for this leg of the tour. A replacement was found. This should be reflected. (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 23:34, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
