The Chemical Brothers, Death In Vegas: Brixton Academy, London

Paul Moody, New Musical Express, 19 April 1994

No sooner have you navigated your way around the slurring drunks at the bus stop and battled your way past the hordes of Earl Brutus refugees flogging tickets outside – unless of course, they were Earl Brutus – than you're confronted with an army of people talking in loud voices about how many mind-mangling drugs they have on their person. But shucks, that's enough about the music biz contingent.
