I  thought it would be kinda fun to post little bits of lesser known (or possibly long since forgotten) bits of knowledge or trivia about the Chems here.

It can be anything Chems related.

I'll start.

The Chems used to have two recipes on their website, thanks to a forum inside joke concerning jerk chicken. The recipes were for (you guessed it) jerk chicken and a salmon dish.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Does anyone still have those recipes saved?

Ha! yes

Did you know... that Snow might have originally had percussion, but had it removed late in the process? This was a promotional description of the intro of Further in 2010 back when it was first announced:

It starts with what sounds like an alien morse code transmission; Earth bound signals bouncing off the side of orbiting space debris. Snatches of voices found out in the ether cut through the machine fog, drifting across burbling analogue equipment lovingly kept working long after supposed sell-by date. By the time the click and thump of snare and bass drum arrive, the sounds are all-encompassing, swirling around you with dizzying, disorientating effect. Noises come untethered by constraints of volume, seemingly leaping from the speakers with a life of their own. For a band used to dealing in psychedelics, this time round The Chemical Brothers have really pushed the proverbial envelope.

Yeah you might be right about that... it is kinda vauge.

Okay, better trivia:

In 1997, when asked if he had ever shoplifted, Ed replied:

"Yeah. A pair of shorts. They were a really horrible kind of Hawaiian design. I was on holiday in France. I ran like crazy. I was the worst shoplifter. It was just an adrenaline rush, something to spice up my evening."
