Five Points; Whatever happened to this one
<<<Five Points>>>

I just love this track. Whenever I hear it I privately wonder why it never made the rotation. This is my attempt to do something about it after all these years. Anyone else out there with me. If you are not familiar with it you can catch a snippet of it here. Fifth track down.

Well, Strumpet came back after 8 years. Who knows?

Re: Five Points; Whatever happened to this one
Just be patient is the approach I would suggest echoing The Bang's reply.

Re: Five Points; Whatever happened to this one
And Five Points seems to fit right in with some of the newer material they seem to be leaning towards for UW6 (as I have dubbed it). If I hadn't heard live performances of it from 1999 and they played it in one of their sets today I would have easily associated it with something like YDS or Bamboo. I once listened to an interview the Chemical Brothers did in which they talked about how sometimes they make a track that they really like in the sessions for a new album, but how they just don't see it in the context of the album, alongside material it isn't all that much like. So they'd shelve it for a while, and come back to it when they felt they were working on an album it fit with. Maybe they'd look upon it with new eyes and do a new take, but they never thought of an unreleased demo as unsuccessful, just not ready for audiences yet. The gradual development of demos over the years that we've seen with Underworld leads me to believe they think the same thing.

Aw man- I love that song. Always has been in my iPod...gotta love that guitar.
It'd be great to hear it again in the future along with newer tracks.

Re: Five Points; Whatever happened to this one
Five Points is my fav unreleased song. Its to developed for an improv imo. I wonder if it would appear seeing it was done with Mr Emerson.
