Right About Now . . . The Funk Soul Brothers!

Joel McIver, Record Collector, Spring 2000

THINK YOU KNOW about dance music? OK then, answer this question: which of the Chemical Brothers is Tom and which is Ed? Despite the fact that the duo are currently all over both the charts and the music press like a rash, it's difficult for the casual observer to come up with any information about either of them. Try finding anyone interested in modern music who doesn't know which of Oasis is Liam and which is Noel, for example. Welcome, then, to the world of Britain's shyest rock stars, the Chemical Brothers.
