Hot Chip's Little business deal

Great deals on musical instruments

Hot Chip has admitted his work with Little Boots was a business affair.

The band's songwriter Joe Goddard, who worked with the 'Meddle' hitmaker on a number of songs on her debut album, claimed that the collaboration was "straightforward".

The 'One Life Stand' singer said: "It's very straightforward and business-orientated to be honest. Her manager used to be our lawyer. He sent me the demo of 'Stuck On Repeat' and said, 'We want this to sound like a Giorgio Moroder song', so I did just that.

"Then he sent me the next demo, 'Meddle', which started off as a rock track, but I basically did a Timbaland rip-off and sent it back. They liked that, so I did one more, 'Mathematics', and it was a similar thing."

Despite that , Joe claimed he was flattered when Little Boots did a cover version of his song 'Ready For The Floor'.

He told Digital Spy: "It feels like a nice thing when anyone covers our music."
