Lemon Jelly is a British electronic music duo from London, formed in 1998. Since their inception, the band's line-up has included Fred Deakin and Nick Franglen. Lemon Jelly has been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and BRIT Awards.

Deakin and Franglen briefly met in North London as teenagers and became friends before going their separate ways. Deakin became a DJ and co-founded his very own Airside studios and Franglen became a studio programmer, before the two became reacquainted in 1998.

Lemon Jelly released three critically acclaimed EPs in 1998, 1999, and 2000, which secured them a record deal with XL Recordings in 2000. The band subsequently released three full-length albums before going on hiatus in 2008.


Deakin and Franglen grew up with the same group of friends, although the two were not truly acquainted with one another. The two eventually became friends but went their separate ways not long after. Deakin moved to Edinburgh for 10 years and became a DJ and co-founder of Airside, a graphic arts company. Franglen gave up his job as a landscape gardener to become a studio programmer, who eventually would work with Primal Scream, Björk, and Pulp. The two periodically bumped into each other at 23 Skidoo concerts. They once again formed a friendship, and bonded over a mutual appreciation for rock music – Deakin cites XTC and A Certain Ratio as personal favourites – and eventually dance music.

The two began recording under the name "Lemon Jelly", which according to Deakin comes from an incident when Franglen came into Deakin's kitchen and said "It smells like Lemon Jelly in here."

From 1998 to 2000, Franglen and Deakin released three limited-circulation EPs: The Bath (1998), The Yellow (1999), and The Midnight (2000), on their own label, Impotent Fury. The EPs were a critical success, and led to the duo being signed to XL Recordings. Franglen and Deakin then collected their three limited-edition EPs into a widely released album in 2000, Lemonjelly.ky.

After the release of the album, Lemon Jelly licensed songs for advertising and incidental music. Music from In the Bath, "A Tune for Jack", was featured in an episode of CSI: Miami,[6] and "The Staunton Lick", from The Yellow, was used during the final scene of the British sitcom Spaced.
