Whether or not they were in the music business for a laugh or not doesn’t matter. They loved pop music, understood it and made fantastic pop/stadium house/rave records. They pissed a few people off as well, which is always good when it’s the type of people you want to piss off, i.e. Brit art upstarts (Rachel Whitbread was awarded K Foundation’s prize for the worst art work), the music industry (firing blanks into the audience and dumping a dead sheep at the after-show party at the 1992 Brit Awards) and the general public when they did or didn’t burn a million quid. In a sense they were similar to Banksy, with their defacement of billboards and self promotion. But none of that matters to me, only the music, even if they are bored to death of making popular music.
