Two cents here
But the Chems like nothing more than free publicity, even though these awards will never be aired when given out. Lucky if they even win one despite having their most ambitious album since their DYOH nomination.

Dang, you beat me to it :)

Nice brothers, finally some sort of official recognition (not that they'd need it)! Let's see if they can get at least one.
"You cannot eat money, oh no. You cannot eat money, oh no. When the last tree has fallen and the rivers are poisoned, you cannot eat money, oh no."

Not bad! I think they have a shot at either single or album... It's hard to say because I think Rufus Du Sol is a lock for one of those too. Fun fact, I was at the very show Rufus Du Soul played Underwater for the first time. Blew my mind!



I'm shocked Tycho's Weather got nominated and Floating Points didn't. Weather is alright but it feels like a nomination for Tycho and not the album, it's far from his best or most holistic work.

Although I have been acting like a resentful child towards Tom and Ed lately, I will be delighted to be happy for them if they win at least one of the nominations. Because No Geography is a very very infulencing record.
Fingers crossed!
Hi Kevin!

Surely Best Music Video will be aired no matter who wins it? (Or am I stuck in the 80s?)
The other bits (dance categories) in the pre-awards cermony get broadcast on the internet IIRC. I watched it before on my laptop.
Yea though I walk through the valley and shadow of death
every day of my life,
I fear no evil for The Lord is with me.

Got To Keep On: WINNER
No Geography: WINNER

Woot, woot! Not that I know for myself that their music is awesome, it's nice to see them getting some commercial recognition again!

Congrats, Tom and Ed, much deserved! But so that you guys know, this doesn't mean you can stop right there!!! Gotta keep on!

I only care about awards when something I like wins, so AWESOME!!!!!

to be fair, the other nominees really didn't provide much competition.

I'm going to be optimistic and hope that they will want to ride the success of the Grammy win and follow it with some US dates.

CBS played GTKO during the lead in to the Grammys, at the end of their red carpet coverage!
I can't take the hearbreak of you leaving me again
And I'm not the one I was back then, no, no, no, no
One thing I can't take is to sit home all alone
Do what you like, my dear, but I'm not staying home

MRW I heard the Chemical Brothers won both awards they were nominated in for No Geography.

WOOHOO!
Congratulations to the Bros! Well deserved I tell ya!
This is up there. Like, Star Guitar up there.

Congrats fellas!

Outside of recognition, is there a legit benefit to winning a Grammy?

I mean I know it once use to mean something in "big box" electronic type stores, because they would categorize their cd department with grammy nominated albums and provide grammy winners with stickers around this time of year. Thing is, most of these stores have eliminated physical music sales from in-store purchase due to poor sales.

now it means a lot more clicks.

They Truly Deserves it
not because I'm a Chems fan but Because No Geography is just an awesome piece of music
Brothers Truly worked it out
Little dissapointed by WGTT not Winning the best video but I can understand that
Where do I start?
Where do I begin?
