So... flowcharts are a thing some fans do to help guide interested listeners through an artist's discography or a genre. They're originally from 4chan's /mu/ board (a wretched hive of scum and villany), but unlike that board the charts are almost always good quality. You start somewhere, then logically flow from one release to the next based on preferences, while keeping things conversational. Here's a few for example:









So... normally I say tackle the Chems chronologically, but I decided to try my hand at one:

The Chemical Brothers Flowchart:



What do you think? How would you do it (or another artist)?

(if you're confused by "big beats are the best, get high all the time", look up The Big Beat Manifesto)
Never for money, always for love.

Great work, but no connection between DYOH and CWU?

And for the Daft Punk, loved how Random Access Memories isn't mentioned in a single word.
no idea, no idea

I love how this places brings out the awesome geekery. :) Have to agree - great work but I was also wondering about the Dig Your Own Hole connection with Come With Us.


Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Hmm its a start but not perfect. Not sure if I agree if you more want 'more nightclub' from surrender you'd go to We are the Night? More like more come down and chill for that.
...'cause I don't like whats going on in the world. I'm scared of that...

Just read a FB comment about the numbers for the rotary knobs at the bottom. They apparently stand for the initial number of the year of each album's release. I thought at first they'd represent the brothers' rating, but this makes totally sense.
Pie-chart music. That's what I have for dessert.

I haven't bought it but it appears to be in the actual Chems shop on the Chems website HERE. This was also the link originally used in the "money to burn collections to fill" thread where this was first discussed.

Here's mine ! I went for a frame that would remind of the MS-20. There were frames that looked even more MS20-y (more round and matte) but a custom enclosure would have been in the 150€... Funny thing, the guy who sold me the frame was a synth nerd and recognised the Korg theme :) We talked synths and electronic music for a bit.

I like the framing! Custom made framing can be quite expensive, indeed.

Haha, yes, I love those encounters. I had a similar one last year with the vendor who printed my Chems shirt. He recognized the Surrender theme and asked me what the occasion was for printing it. I told him I was going to see them play live shortly and he was surprised that they were still active. He stopped listening after PTB and thought they went too mainstreamy. So I had to lecture them on how that was quite the opposite and that he should listen to Further and BITE. While talking he revealed that he makes electronic music as well and owns lots of synth gear himself. I left the shop with my shirt and his latest CD which he gave me for free :)

Yes, I bought it after theyr show in Paris. I'm not sure what to do with it though. What is the purpose of a "tea towel" ?

Well, according to my dictionary, it's used to dry your dishes (like tea cups) and stuff in the kitchen for instance.
