The Chemical Brothers

The Chemical Brothers

The Chemical Brothers are a British electronica duo consisting of Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons (full names Thomas Owen Mostyn Rowlands and Edmund John Simons. The pair began DJing together at the Manchester club Naked Under Leather in 1991 under semi-serious handle Dust Brothers (a tribute to the American production team responsible for one of their favorite albums, the Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique). They soon emerged with "Song to the Siren," an intriguing example of the new alternative dance scene. After the pair had finished university, they moved back to London to work on another EP (14th Century Sky) and a residency at another club. After their third release, "My Mercury Mouth," the duo began to get more high-profile clients for remixing: besides Justin Roberston's Lionrock collective, Primal Scream, the Prodigy, and the Charlatans all received treatments.

Although they were forced to change to change their name to the Chemical Brothers, their popularity only continued to increased. Their debut album, Exit Planet Dust, was heavily praised by critics. Another fan of the record, Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher, agreed to lend his vocals to a future single named "Setting Sun," the Chemicals' tribute to one of their own favorites, the Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows." The single went to number one in late 1996, and the Chemical Brothers opened up for the giant Oasis concert at Knebworth besides headlining their own shows all over the world. After releasing six full-length albums and countless remixes, they released the compilation album Brotherhood in 2008.
