The Chemical Brothers: The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers

David Bennun, Melody Maker, 20 January 1996

Ed Simons and Tom Rowlands aka THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS are the Stooges of techno — freaky, raw and seriously hip. Like The Orb, The Prodigy, Leftfield, Underworld and Sabres, they're A Dance Band It's Essential For Indie Kids To Like. Last year's Exit Planet Dust was a major critical and commercial success. This year, expect further shock waves. DAVID BENNUN meets The Mary Chain of remixology.
