Mint Royale was an electronic music group, hailing from Manchester, England. They were founded by the duo Neil Claxton and Chris Baker in 1997. Baker left the band in 2004, but Claxton continued to produce music using the Mint Royale name until 2016. Mint Royale first specialised in remixes, and became known after the release of their mix of “Tequila” by Terrorvision. They were championed by British dance guru Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim, whose DJ sets regularly included their work. Their sound was similar to his, to the extent that some people mistakenly believed Mint Royale to be a pseudonym for Cook himself. Their first album, On the Ropes, was released in late 1999, and though it was not a big sales hit, some songs from it have achieved recognition. As the band embarked on a series of live shows and a UK tour in 2003, a new single was released, “Blue Song,” the video for which featured comedians Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt, of The Mighty Boosh fame, as well as Nick Frost of Spaced and Shaun of the Dead fame and Michael Smiley, also of Spaced. The video was directed by Edgar Wright.
