InterFM podcast interview with Karl (or is it Carl...)

There is a podcast of an interview with Karl at the InterFM website, a Tokyo radiostation.

"This weeks guyPod is an interview with Carl Hyde from Underworld who
were in Japan for Electraglide 2005. I've interviewed Carl before but
this time we talk about technology, new Underworld music, losing
weight, trees, what's on Carl's i-Pod & a cool thing to do in London.."

Interview is in English + Japanese translation.

Sziget 2005 review

Found another review of last summers Sziget festival with 2 pictures of Underworld I didn't link to before.

Karl during an interview.

Carl Cox mixes Born Slippy over Pontape

In this review of electraglide Osaka there is besides a piece abouit the Underworld concert, a review of what happened when Carl Cox played Born Slippy lyrics over Pontape by Renato Cohen.

"at the perfect moment just as Karl Hyde (Underworld vocalist) stood on stage to the big man's left (after rocking the crowd with his own live show on the opposite side of the arena). I saw a cheeky smile exchanged between two of the biggest dogs in the industry and it showed me that even at the global level that these performers have attained, there is still a sense of familial community and mutual respect when collaborating on shows like this."

Anybody got a recording of Carl Cox set? ;)

Top 50 Basslines of All Time

Underworld made it #27 with Moaner in the Stylus Magazine Top 50 of All Times...

High prices for tokyo 3cd at online auctions

At yahoo auctions the Tokyo Electraglide 3CD is fetching high prices. The first one I saw on there went after 62 bids (including automatic bids) for 13.000 yen, that's 94 euro or 112 U$ or 64 GBP... wow. The auctions for other ones look like they're going to end that hight too (same bidders etc)

Cut-out of screendump.

In one auction they also give you a AHDO button / pin if you win. I've never seen this one, I don't know if it's official merchandise.

JAL to Tokyo promo

Today a JAl to Tokyo promo + press sheet with 2 mixes on it was sold on ebay.
Tracks are:
JAL to Tokyo - woolford vox (7'52)
JAL to Tokyo - woolford dub (7'52)

crappy pic of the cover as found on ebay

Electraglide pics

There's more Electragilde pictures at flickr, made by ANA23 this time
See them here .

Electraglide 3cd

If things went like they were planned, people that ordered the electraglide tokyo 3cd at the festival should have recieved their copy. I can't find any reports on it online though :( Little trouble while searching is if there is something, it'll be in japanese which I can't read. A large % of the visitors of this blog are from Japan, perhaps one of them could post a link in the comments if he/she finds something.

Underworld did record their 25/11/2005 concert at Electraglide, Tokyo as a fan only release to people who filled in a form at Electraglide.
hmms wanted to put a picture of the cover here, but can't find it anymore :s

Debbie and Karl...

I just finished downloading Deborah Harry - London, Wembley Stadium 13.07.91 as a torrent.
This gig was part of the .... Tour.
This concert was part of "SUMMERXS", a festival headlining INXS.

Karl in an old interview :
"So I did that in 1991(playing with Debby Harry). It was a great tour, because we were touring with Iggy Pop, Sisters of Mercy and Billy Idol sometimes. We did that thing with INXS at Wembley stadium. I got my dad down just so I could say

"I played Wembley dad, sorry it's not football but it's the best I could do."

A picture of Karl and Deborah during the tour here
And 2 of the pictures that came with the torrent below

MK1 song used in a Hunter episode

I walked past a store where rows of televisions where playing a familiar song.. I stopped for a moment to think what it was. It was Underworld (mk1) - change the weather! Because the logo of the station was in the top of the screens, I could find what was on at that time.

Season 6 (1989)
episode 10 - # Brotherly Love

pitchfork interview

This link was posted today at dirty board and rtsr http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/news/05-12/07.shtml#underworld

Some quotes of this interview:
He assured us, however, that Underworld have by no means forsaken traditional music release formats; indeed, the band plans to issue a number of remixes of segments culled from "Lovely Broken Thing" and "Pizza for Eggs" on 12" vinyl. A portion titled "JAL to Tokyo" received remix treatment from house DJ Paul Woolford and has been making a stir among club mavens. It will be followed by remixes from Martinez, Paul Heller, and Robag Wruhme.
Nothing much new here..

Hyde and Smith compile their own program now, on which "every music genre is fair game," and share it via their multimedia internet headquarters dirty.org. Episodes see light intermittently, and Hyde hopes to do another before Christmas.
Great! :)

"We were kind of jamming in the studio earlier this year, and it was kind of obvious that something was kicking off there," Hyde said of working with Eno. "We've given him some stuff and he's given us some stuff. We have these conversations and meet and talk and play each other's stuff, and he's quietly getting on with something we've given him, and we're waiting for his response and we'll kind of take it from there. Really, just the doors are open, so if somebody walks in, something can happen, you know?"

There was a post at uwlive.com some time ago about working with Brian Eno.. Let's hope this will see the light of day sometime! :o)

New tunes

Today the newest online release was added to the www.underworldlive.com shop. 6 tracks in one mix, 444 photos and artwork.
Tracks are: food a ready, back in the fears, vanilla monkey, flatz, ancient phat farm coat, and play pig.

And another one for Sola Sistem by meth.
