History

Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim) joined the well-known pop group The Housemartins in 1986, replacing the founding member, Ted Key. After the group split in 1988, Norman became involved with the growing acid house scene, and eventually joined forces with producers Tim Jeffrey and J.C. Reid toward the end of the decade to form Pizzaman. The trio released three Top 40 hits before Norman split off to record with Freak Power and Beats International in the early 1990s.

Following this, he began his solo career as we know him today, Fatboy Slim.

 

#LetUsDance Campaign

Earlier in 2020, Fatboy Slim joined other artists to show his support for the #LetUsDance social media campaign. This campaign made it known to the government the support the industry requires to get through the pandemic.
