Hooker: Dance to the Beat of a Lonely Heart single launch

20Mar11

After marvelling along with the rest of Twitter at the #supermoon last night, I went along to the launch of Hooker‘s single Dance to the Beat of a Lonely Heart. What an excellent gig.

It was held in the Nip and Tipple in Whalley Range, Manchester. I must admit, I haven’t been the biggest fan of the Nip. It’s always had to compete in my mind with the Range’s rather excellent Jam Street Cafe and The Hillary Step for my attentions. But as a venue for the gig, it was a perfect.

The Nip was packed to the gills. Hooker took to the stage and played a perfect set of powerful riot/punk, a selection of old and new that neatly showcased the evolution of this local Manchester based band, and in particular, the perfection of frontwoman Zoe McVeigh’s always incredible vocal style. Needless to say, the crowd ate it up. The highlight of the evening, and rightly so, was the single Dance to the Beat of a Lonely Heart. It really is a dancing song. Hooker’s tracks are always guaranteed to make you move but for me, this is a song I know will drag out my best moves on sweaty dancefloors for a long time to come.

You can get your copy here. Might just be the soundtrack to your summer.
