Psychedelic soul duo Gnarls Barkley keeps it true and real, in costume
It's a suitable punch line for hip-hop gospel band Gnarls Barkley: the implausible pairing of DJ and producer Danger Mouse (Brian Burton) and Green (real name Thomas Calloway).

Gnarls Barkley's combo of psychedelic rumblings, grave lyrics and poppy huff has paved its spring-to-summer success.
In April, the troupe’s bass-heavy single, "Crazy," reached to the peak at the British singles chart as the first track to attain No. 1 based on computer download sales alone.
