The Chemical Brothers’ Gear Sure Is Beat Up

Need proof that you don’t need the latest and greatest gear to make electronic music?

Just check out the funk on the Chemical Brothers live gear set up!

Here’s the extreme gear porn close up to make things clear for you:

Their Roland SH-101 looks beat up, with tape on the corners. Their Octave Cat looks like they play it with a hammer. Their Akai MPC looks like they either took a blowtorch to it.

Next time you think you need new gear to make music, remember what the Chemical Brothers are doing with their knackered gear.
