Steve Hall is the boys' manager. He used to run JBO.
I've actually had him in my house!!!

::sigh:: I'm never going to be as cool as you are. It's so depressing.

Quote from: Rick
Recently unearthed, this recording made in late 98 is part of a number of rehearsals before the release and touring of the album Beaucoup Fish.

Including some tracks from the album, older material and a number of improv’s that went onto become a huge part of the Underworld live experience in 1999.

Romford 1998 live rehearsal.

This is amazing. Hands down 1998 was the year of some of their most killer live sets and improvs.

Orbital has been sharing so much behind the scenes stuff and live recordings, Underworld is getting more open with their archives, I can only hope the Chems do the same sometime...

Something Like a Mama is pretty fuckin' great.

Whole set is a fantastic glimpse. Loved listening to it.

Did anyone on Born Dirty happen to get a copy that might somehow end up in my direct messages?

^ Working on that in a moment but for now - since the topic's up and it's Christmas! - here are some of their best 1998 live recordings:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1cN8HSnQbBtF4AHm6HiyMPM1gq7PlHEno

10-31-1998 - Ahoy, Rotterdam
11-02-1998 - Mojo Club, Reeperbahn
11-14-1998 - I Love Techno, Gent
11-23-1998 - The Mayan Theater, Los Angeles
12-31-1998 - Temptation New Years Eve, Ali Pali, London

ALL are recommended. Mayan Theater is an AUD recording but it's one of the best shows they've ever played without question, it does not let up.

Wonderful lo-fi acoustic work-in-progress release, mostly from Karl:

If you enjoy Blueski, Trim, Tongue, Tiny Clicks, Santiago Cuatro, etc, this is for you.

They're giving away a free download of 'A Small Conker and a Twix'. The little downtempo number they played in 2005 and a little in 2009. It's the yums.

Grab it here.

Cool. I think this also got used in the Sunshine soundtrack under a different name?
