David Bennun interviews The Chemical Brothers, 20th January 1996

Been listening to Stephen Jones’ (him from Babybird) Almost Cured Of Sadness for the first time today, co-incidentally Babybird had their big hit with You’re Gorgeous in 1996.

I can’t help thinking that if this record came out today, fronted by a bunch of pretty teenage Hoxton chancers, the N.M.E. would be falling over themselves to call them the future of music. Or something. Our very own Andrew Mueller gives a rather sniffy review of it on Amazon but since when did any of us trust music journalists?

Judge for yourselves. Here’s one of the tracks I’ve picked at random.

    good to see this blog back. i’ve missed the nostalgic distraction.

    i agree about stephen jones.

    ‘dying happy’- one of his early bedroom albums is intensely sad and beautiful. i think there were a few enthusiastic reviews at the time but he was seen as a weirdo outsider, even in the world of weirdo outsiders.

    i hope the miserable fucker knows he made something good.
