"Setting Sun" Is Released
"Setting Sun" is a song by The Chemical Brothers written by Noel Gallagher, released as a single in 1996 and on their second album Dig Your Own Hole in 1997.
With vocals by Noel Gallagher of Oasis, it reached #1 on the UK charts and #80 on the US Billboard Hot 100, their highest position there so far. The song was inspired by The Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows", from 30 years earlier.
The Chemical Brothers are the English electronic music duo Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons (full names Thomas Owen Mostyn Rowlands and Edmund John Simons — occasionally referred to as Chemical Tom and Chemical Ed). Known for their live sets, they are pioneers of the big beat electronic dance genre which achieved mainstream popularity in the 1990s.
Noel Thomas David Gallagher (born on the 29 May 1967 in Longsight, Manchester, England) is the principal songwriter, lead guitarist, and occasional vocalist of British rock band Oasis. Raised with younger brother Liam Gallagher in Burnage, Manchester, Gallagher began to get guitar lessons from Dayle Robertson at the age of thirteen during a period of probation. After a series of odd jobs in construction, Gallagher joined local Manchester band Inspiral Carpets as a roadie in 1988. In 1991, he became a member of brother Liam's band The Rain (whose name was later changed to Oasis), quickly asserting his dominance over the group.
Within a few years, with Oasis's early success due to their debut album, Definitely Maybe (1994), Gallagher assumed centre stage of the Britpop movement, during which Oasis continued to enjoy much critical and commercial success. This stage of the band's career was epitomised by the release of their second album (What's the Story) Morning Glory? (1995) and a rivalry with fellow Britpop band Blur. Since the demise of Britpop, Gallagher and Oasis have released four other studio albums.
