The name norman, came from paul heaton too, but i don't have time to add it properly now!
- Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars was released in 2000 and featured several collaborations with vocalist Macy Gray including "Sunset (Bird of Prey)", a slower tempo piece based around a sample of Jim Morrison from The Doors.
I'm not too sure about this, but I don't think Sunset has any Macy Gray in it. Demons does. I'm gonna check this out when I get [procrastinate|real time] on my hands.--ZZ
- There's definitely no Macy Gray on Sunset (that's all Jim Morrison). Macy Gray's collaborations are Demons and the abysmal Love Life. Kinitawowi 09:34, Sep 13, 2004 (UTC)
This page seems to be corrupted. For instance a huge section of Cook's life is missing (The Housemartins epoch) I have no Wikipedia knowledge, so I'll stop here. Cheers if someone can fix it.

Lead rewrite proposal
I am proposing a rewerite of the lead so it takes the context of his entire career better. Something like this:
Cook first rose to fame in the 1980's as the bassist of the Indie Rock band, The Housemartins who scored a UK number-one single with their a capella cover of Isley-Jasper-Isley's Caravan of Love. After the band split, Cook formed Beats International whose debut album spawned their signature hit, Dub Be Good to Me which was another UK number-one as well as going on to become the 7th best-selling single of 1990 in the UK. Their later efforts however, failed to have the same impact. Cook then went on to be a member of numerous other acts including Freak Power, Pizzaman and The Mighty Dub Katz to moderate success.
Cook adopted the Fatboy Slim monikier in 1996 and released Better Living Through Chemistry to critical acclaim. Follow ups, You've Come a Long Way, Baby and Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars as well as their associated singles including "The Rockafeller Skank", "Praise You", "Right Here Right Now" and "Weapon of Choice" helped to popularise the big beat genre which achieved mainstream popularity in the 1990s. As Fatboy Slim, he has won ten MTV Video Music Awards and two Brit Awards. In 2012, Cook founded a project called The Brighton Port Authority.
- I have now implemented the changes. FM [ talk to me | show contributions ] 17:53, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
