Born Slippy, yet again

24 09 2007

Every couple of years or so someone does a bootleg of “Born Slippy, NUXX” by Underworld.  The original, a massive anthem, was so infectious that it topped the UK charts.  This bootleg, done by DJ Joe K from Brazil, takes the original and gives it an electro-house twist. 

MP3: “Born Slippy (Joe K Remix)” – Underworld

Buy this at Juno.

Underworld: Lots of Newness Starts Today

Underworld Oblivion With Bells

Underworld’s last album was called “100 Days Off”, and while its taken closer to 2000 days, a long overdue followup called “Oblivion With Bells” is due to be released in October. I was blessed with an advance copy and it sounds great, hearkening back to one of my favorite albums of the late 90’s, “Beaucoup Fish.”

The first single “Crocodile” is out today, and we’d like to remain friends with the cuties at Magnum PR, so I ain’t gonna throw you any MP3s just yet. But you can listen to an iMeem stream of the new song here, or you can watch this fan-made video, which hijacks the visuals from another Underworld track:

Underworld have about 3 months of touring lined up, with only a handful of those dates in the U.S. Why? Probably because with the exception of these cities, our musical tastes are basically still stuck in the guitar worshipping, pre-punk halcyon 70’s. (Pop and hip hop aside, of course: I’m super oversimplifying to make my simplistic point.)

So come on, America, throw those old Nugent records on the bonfire and get on the electronic tip like the rest of the world. Disco won’t make you gay – not completely, at least (and a little ‘gay’ never hurt anyone). It’s not like we’re asking you to listen to Tiesto (sorry Jessica!), and just think of how it will help our standing in the world’s eyes: a nation of gun-totin’ ravers!
