Regular readers might know I love pictures of Underworld, I'm always searching the bitwaves for them.
Tomo, the chief editor of loud magazine, reminded me of the name of the photographer that made the promo pictures for Underworld. It's Perou, an amazing photographer that also shoots for Marilyn Manson (amongst lots of others)
See his gallery of Underworld pictures here, there is one of the boys working in the Abbey Road studio working on the next releases.
You can read in his diary what happened when he was shooting the Underworld concert at Electraglide Tokyo...

12-11-2005 I Love Techno review #2

I found some reviews of ILT in Belgium newspapers etc, all in dutch.

De Standaard
At I Love Techno also programmed live concerts. One of the biggest names on the bill was the live band Underworld, which already played at Pukkelpop and Rock Werchter. The hall in which the band played did fill up to maximum capacity fast and who was there in time didn't regret it. The live-set was great from beginning to end, and the well known songs like 'Born Slippy' made the crowd more then thankfull.

picture 2 is one of Karl. Click on 'video' to see a little report about ILT, the first bit is Underworld.

Het Volk
Underworld Absolute top.

A whole lot less energetic was it in the blue room, where dj Magda was playing. The Polish born but Detroit raised could only amaze in a lesser degree in a half filled hall. Lots of people probably then moved to the yellow room where the absolute top act of the night was setting up for their live set. And that Underworld, nowdays without Darren Emerson, still is the best live act in the genre, they proved with full conviction. Every spot in the hall was filled. Lucky we could also be in the Switch Video Room, a circular shaped hall in the middle of Flandres Expo where you could watch the Underworld concert at 9 large screens. Long Live techno(logy)!

A few days ago I posted about the download project at the members section of Underworldlive.com.
There are a couple of reviews online here and here. (click on banner there)
Some new press/promo pictures come with them.
I really like this one, it has a 80's punky feel

12-11-2005 I Love Techno review

The Dutch OOR music magazine that had that crap review of the HMH gig earlier, posted an onlinereview of I Love Techno.

Meezingen is ook het devies bij UNDERWORLD. Iedereen die dance een warm hart toedraagt, heeft ooit een Underworld moment gehad. Voor de meesten is dit echter Born Slippy. Het nummer dat ooit werd uitgebracht als B-Kant, maar via de film Trainspotting de aandacht kreeg die het verdient. Het spelen van dit nummer brengt dan ook een enorme ontlading teweeg. Van de eerste rustige tonen tot het wegsterven van de laatste beat. Underworld weet de enorme hal die normaal gebruikt wordt als beursstand om te toveren tot feestpaleis.

Better review this time :)

11-11 l'Atelier Luxemburg review

I found a review in German about this wicked concert the boys did at l'Atelier in Luxemburg city.
Nice unearthy picture of the green laser there.

I have not enough time to translate it, but in basic the reviewer liked the gig although he/she came to see a band that uses drums and keyboards and guitars...
On another website I found some very dark pics of this concert.

013 Tilburg 11-11 review

There was a review of the 1st gig at the 013, Tilburg, Holland in the free Metro newspaper.
In dutch ofcourse.

A review by Lady Aida, a dutch DJ, at her weblog with some pictures.
And a review of the Tilburg department of the 3voor12 website .Also some pics there.
Both in dutch.

Dirty BeNeLux tour

I Came home from work a few hours back, had late shift.. Now I can finally update this blog with the latest news.

I got home at 5 am this morning from ILT in Gent belgium, the 4th gig of the mini tour Underworld did the past few days. It has been a great time, driving around the benelux, meeting all dirties and enjoying the shows. We've met loads of friendly people, helping us to get in the right directions etc, random strangers that did see our Tshirts or the banner or hear us talk about the gigs coming up to us and asking about dirty.org and underworld. And ofcourse other fans, man.. the fans. It's them making the show together with rick, darren and karl. I still get goosebumps (chickenskin/anttits (inside joke alert)) everytime BS.nuxx or KoS or Moaner or Rez kicks in and the few 100 to 5500 people started to cheer, clap, shout and wave their arms...
4 shows in 4 days.. 4 totally different shows, 11 hours of live music by our favorite band. That's how we like it! :o) I'll post tracklistings later when we have them all together, atm it's all a bit blurry. There'll be picture links too, I didn't have time to search for them yet.

In the mean time:
Underworld released their first now musical outing through Underworldlive.com. You can buy 'lovely broken thing', a 28 min mix of 7 new tracks, there with coverart and photo's made by Karl. Tracknames are: "jal to tokyo", "billy goat", "peggy sussed", "dub shepherd", "lenny penne", "monkey wink" and "witness".

Underworld will be recording the show they will be doing at Electraglide. This will be sold after the show there as a 3cd, only to the audience at the venue.

I won a promo picture of UW mk1 and a drinkstoken coin thing that was used during the gig at the HMH earlier this year at ebay.

Report: 2005-11-10 013, Tilburg Second gig in the Mini EU tour

Just back from Tilburg.

Well.. 2nd gig at the same venue so I won't talk about that other then it's the best place to see underworld with a lot of fans. I forgot to mention the GREEN LASER in my report about the first gig I think? Well... it was there, going mental during KoS and Moaner, and it did again today.
I love it when it waves down over the crowd.

We did meet up with some 15 people at the bar Extase, had a great chat with people we did meet before the HMH gig earlier this year and 'old time' friends we speak more often. I had a great time, thanks for coming everybody. (as if they had a choice... everybody was holding tickets for everybody it seemed)

Same easy enterance as last night, although we had to line up for a few minutes before getting in.
We found a spot to stand really near to the gate that fitted the people we were with and to have a little space to dance/move. Lots of chatter with old time friends while Darren was showing of his DJ skills again.

They came on stage, rick and karl first, then darren. I have to tell that the stagehand was on stage a few times too, kicking gear back into right order.
This was a totally different show then the first night, started different and ended different too.
Tracklisting is all blurry again.. got to renew my RAM I think.
This time around, ofcourse Moaner and BS.nuxx/2003/nuxx with some more tweaks. Dark Train again \o/ Some of the new tracks, 2 very 'soft' parts in the show, what I think will be moviescores or ambiantish pieces for the web. Again they dropped samples of loads of other songs during the entire show, Karl sang the criminals fugitives sample live! We did hear TMO today.. and the encore, yes this time they did one, was Jumbo. By that time I was standing in the front and got a high five by Karl We got the Dirty.org banner on the projection screen this time.
So.. loads of new stuff and some crowdpleasers. Wicked concert.
2 down, 2 to go!

Report: 9-11-2005 013 Tilburg Holland EU show #1

013 Tilburg 9-11-2005

First one of the 2 concerts at the 013 in Tilburg, Holland.

The 013 is a rather new building, specially build for concerts by 'pop'bands. It's wider then it is deep and the floor is build stairswise so everybody is able to see the stage. There was one big screen at the back of the stage and there were 2 screens at the sides. They had 2 BIG projectors on the stage for the backscreen. The mixingdesk and the gearrigs were there too ofcourse.. Karls guitar was on stage too but never left it's stand There were I think 5 cameras pointed at the desk, one at the audience and then Karls mini camera with a long wire. The lightshow wasn't very big but it was enough to change moods, including 2 crowdblinders which were used during moaner.

When we entered the venue, our tickets were scanned and then we could go on inside to leave our jackets and bags at the cloackroom. No searching whatsoever..
We did meet up with a couple of people and went into the main hall. Darren Price was already spinning a great selection of tunes. While drinking softdrinks and heineken (no beer there..) we talked for a while, were asked details and info about underworld cos people standing around us thought we knew a lot about them, dunno why

Then the gang came on stage while there was a bass/drumloop gaining volume.
Rick bent down over the mixingdesk, adjusting the last settings, Darren had a look at the gear/puterrig and Karl waved to the audience as for a welcome.
The first tune kicked in, a new tune with medium beat which already got the crowd going. Lights went low and the lightshow lid up.......... to not stop for another 3 hours!
Because this was a rollercoaster of sound, I lost track of the exact tracklisting. They played ongoing mixes that lasted

30 minutes sometimes. Dropping in samples and bits all over the place during the whole show.
I remember Juanita, Push Upstairs, KoS very long version with a crazy going laser, BS.nuxx/2003/nuxx + HUGE applause afterwards, Moaner with a very long intro building and building and building into the darkest and strongest versions I ever did hear, Dark train and Rez. Somewhere in there... Shake T Higher, You do Scribble and lenny penn and I believe JAL to Tokyo were played too.

Inbetween songs Karl talked a little to the audience, telling that there was a track released today (nov 9th) and that that was the first of what we'll going to be seeing of them in the future, including the music for the movie. He thanked the crowd for showing up 3 times

After Rez it was all over, Karl came down to earth (only a little I bet) Darren and Rick walked to the front of the stage, waving to the crowd absorbing the cheering and the applause. Huges, pats on backs and heads... high 5's with the people at the front of the audience and off they went.

After that there was a little afterparty where I think Darren spinned some more nice tunes that kept the vibe going and included a TMO remix.

Amazing concert, great crowd and the best band in the world!

just in #46

Just got home from the shops.

I've bought the Live 8 4 dvd set, mainly for the Pink Floyd on it. Also for the good cause ofcourse!
Strange how some concerts from the same venue differ much in soundquality on this dvd. I think some artists had their own producers to work on it.
Good that the Pink Floyd bit sounds absolutly super! :)

I also bought the newest de Nits cd called Les Nuits. Brilliant dutch band.

Also bought the OOR popencyclopedie2005 cdrom, all 14 books on one cd. Nice to have, although I have most books I don't have the earliest versions.
