2 different mashups with Underworld and a japanese group called Perfume.
TMO + some title with rythm in it...
Born slippy + Seventh Heaven

Out on vinyl is Murder is Bruce Lee.oom

two youtubes;


MTVasia had a long talk with Karl a couple of weeks back in which he tells many little details about the album.

'They're planning to release Internet-only material that didn't make the album, like "You Do Scribble," a title coined by Hyde's daughters, and "Bungalow With Stairs."'


Independent.ie has a great ' background' interview on their site.

' Hyde and Smith have also been exploiting fully the online possibilities of the internet through their hugely popular web radio shows, Dirty Radio ("We were really inspired by John Peel and what he taught us," says Hyde) and the ongoing development of their web TV shows through the full unlimited support of QuickTime (a mooted film-for-download of their Hollywood Bowl gig was dropped when the venue demanded $20,000 for the privilege. "We just watched it on YouTube instead!").'

GyaO tv

GyaO tv.jp had an Underworld special broadcast yesteraday.
They also have an Underworld website with info about the upcoming concerts and about OwB.

All in japanese of course.

Underworld Live from the Roundhouse, London,
in association with Apple/Quicktime,

On 17 - 19 October Underworld will play 3 sold-out shows at the legendary London venue, the Roundhouse. Following on from their groundbreaking Web-TV broadcast from Cocoon Club (Frankfurt, 2006), Underworld mark the release of their latest studio album "Oblivion with Bells" by teaming-up with Apple/QuickTime to broadcast (free-to-air) all three Roundhouse shows Live from their website (www.underworldlive.com).

Long-time Underworld collaborator Simon Taylor (tomato) will be directing the broadcasts from the Roundhouse with the help of members of the Roundhouse Studios.

The broadcast will be live and available to all, for free at www.underworldlive.com (www.underworldlive.com/live-on-air) from 8pm (UK) on 17th, 18th, 19th October).
