    As a solo electronic act, he has won ten MTV Video Music Awards and two Brit Awards. His records as Fatboy Slim also helped to popularise the big beat genre, which achieved mainstream popularity in the 1990s.

    Cook first rose to fame in the 1980s as the bassist of the indie rock band The Housemartins who scored a UK number-one single with their a cappella cover of Isley-Jasper-Isley’s “Caravan of Love”. After the band split, Cook formed Beats International whose début album spawned their signature hit, “Dub Be Good to Me” which was another UK number-one as well as going on to become the seventh best-selling single of 1990 in the UK. Cook then went on to join numerous other acts including Freak Power, Pizzaman and The Mighty Dub Katz to moderate success.

    Cook adopted the Fatboy Slim moniker in 1996 and released Better Living Through Chemistry to critical acclaim. Follow-ups You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby, Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars, and Palookaville, as well as their associated singles, including “The Rockafeller Skank”, “Praise You”, “Right Here, Right Now”, “Weapon of Choice”, and “Wonderful Night”, were also met with positive reviews and commercial success.

    In 2008, Cook founded a project called The Brighton Port Authority.[5] Cook has been responsible for successful remixes for Cornershop, Beastie Boys, A Tribe Called Quest, Groove Armada, and Wildchild.

Recently, friends of mine who work in the nhs.uk asked me to send a video message to thank and cheer on the frontline troops and in it I, (half) jokingly said, we should all have a big party together when this is all over.

As so many people responded to the comment, I thought, ‘why not?’

By the time life returns to normal we will all want to celebrate together and, I would like to do my bit to reward and thank everyone who has been holding our lives together in these most difficult of times.

So I extend an invitation to all NHS doctors, nurses, support workers, porters and cleaners plus all blue light staff, ambulance, police and fire service (and importantly to their plus ones) to let their hair down with me and dance off the cobwebs to rejoice in the end of this emergency.

The gig will take place on Wednesday October 28th 2020 at The Brighton Centre

Tickets will be available at 7pm on Friday 17th April from here: lnk.to/FBSNHS
