It's Friday . . . Let's Dance +
When the Dust Brothers changed their name to The Chemical Brothers, I thought at the time, what a pish name but over the years the name has kind of grown on me and it didn't do Tom and Ed's career any harm into the bargain.
The duo are along with Orbital and Underworld probably the three best practitioners of "dance music" who became huge but didn't dilute their product to make it accessible to the mass market. Sure, there were the guest vocals by Gallagher, Gillespie, Sumner to mention but three but those didn't feel like conscious attempt to appeal to those who didn't get dance music.
Okay, they are held responsible for the whole Big Beat fad but a lot of good records did come out of that scene as well as the pish.
My favourite track has to be The Private Psychedelic Reel which has been featured before, so here is a belter of a single from 1999.
Have a good weekend people.
