Rare UW 1994 Interview (With Saint Etienne)
Here's a 1994 Black & White Underworld Interview with the other band Saint Etienne featured towards the end. Karl Hyde talks about the Experimental Sound Field at 8:18 min into the video by mentioning - "The longest we've ever played was for 14 Hours."

That is an amazing documentary. Thanks for pointing it out. It's wild to see everyone at Tomato looking so young. And what an exciting creative space for them at that time.

On that Tomato show reel, that MTV spot is Rick/Underworld music. I'm not sure if I've heard it elsewhere before, or if I've seen a video of that commercial before. I imagine that Absolut spot is UW music too.

This doc is a promo for a Reykjav?k performance on Jun 19, 1994, which is not in the Gigography, but I did find on setlist.fm. Based on Karl's comments about performing in Holland "a couple weeks ago" the interview likely took place in late April or early May 1994. I'm most interested in Karl's comment at 8:21 about a show that should have taken place "two weeks ago" that would have been 24 hours, except the police shut it down.

I found the Reykjavik Iceland festival 94 entry that both Underworld & Bjork performed at.

Yeah, unfortunately, that date is not correct, because UW were performing at Megadog at Brixton on that date:

Okay thanks for the info. Another thing I want to ask is that I notice in the Dark & Long (Dark Train) Music Video is that I see there are various clips of Karl, Rick, and Emerson performing at unknown venues (possibly from 1993 - 1994). And do you have any info / idea on what these gigs are from ? And will full footage surface one day of these UW Performances ?

Nevermind, the Iceland date is correct. This Megadog is from 1993, not 1994, like the image file says.
