Re: Manchester Street Poem
If anyone's dithering on this because Doris isn't your type, or because you're not into the Breaking and Entering / Frankenstein / Bungalow with Stairs stuff: GO BUY THE INSTALLATION SCORE! It's much more full-on techno than Doris or their soundtrack work might lead you to expect.

Re: Manchester Street Poem
The download includes both 320 Kbps MP3 and 24/48 FLAC, over an hour of music. I've only gotten through the first track so far, but easily worth it. I gave $10.

Re: Manchester Street Poem
I'm really, really enjoying this whole album. Can't get it out of my head, even. Between this and all the Drift material (Appleshine Continuum especially), it really does feel like the best year to be an Underworld fan in a long time.

Edit: I seriously can't stop listening to Charlie.

Re: Manchester Street Poem
Another great release. I like the more upbeat tracks compared to
the ambient ones.

Definitely worth checking out.

Re: Manchester Street Poem
For those who remember that 6 Music show in 2017 that broadcast some of these songs along with stories from the homeless, a few of the titles changed from then to now:

Jenny = Bernadette
Andrew = Doris
Charlie = Garland
James = Different Towns
Ed = Mooch

I think you missed the part of the torrent where it said: "Track names are not official."
