notes: Tate Modern invited The Chemical Brothers to walk around the gallery and find a work of art that would inspire them to write a track.
It was Jacob Epstein's Torso in Metal from 'The Rock Drill' that grabbed their attention. It's a menacing sculpture made out of bronze. The Chemical Brothers said that they wanted to 'capture the latent feeling of force that the figure has.' The result was their track, The Rock Drill, which opened the groundbreaking Tate Tracks series.
