The pair discussed their music style in a rare interview within 2001, with Thomas saying: 'We incorporate a lot of American and English-based influences, but take them completely out of context.
'The way we listen to Chicago house music, disco, heavy metal or punk is completely artistic, without the political side of it.
'But then we used it in a political way ourselves, which is making music at home, recycling and by combining those styles at home and doing it in a very new way.'
