The Chemical Brothers are the English Grammy Award winning electronic music duo Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons (occasionally referred to as Chemical Tom and Chemical Ed).
Initially they called themselves "The Dust Brothers", after the noted United States production duo of the same name, but the threat of legal action from the originals led them to change their name in 1995.
The typeface used to write the typical "The Chemical Brothers" logo is derived from Sho, designed by Karlgeorg Hoefer in 1992. The Chemical Brothers' original logo differs only in a few details from orthodox Sho, e.g. in the letters a and b. Linotype holds the licence for this typeface.
"Galvanize", which features Q-Tip on vocals, was the first single to be taken from Push the Button, and premiered exclusively on iTunes. The single was released on January 17, 2005, and entered the UK chart at #3.
The album and single "Galvanize" won a Grammy in the Grammy Awards of 2006. The Song My Elastic Eye from the "Come With Us" album was played in the 2004 movie The Butterfly Effect starring Ashton Kutcher and Amy Smart.
