Re: Not another Nuxx thread, surely?
I've always found the crowd reaction to Nuxx to be interesting. Most people seem to recognize only the main chords and the lyrics. Even at a solo Underworld gig this is very prevalent. Most of us on the forum will recognize it right away; the kick, the percussion, we'll know it less than a second from when it starts.

The majority of the crowd wont. They'll stand there bobbing their heads because they don't really know the track, and they don't know what's coming. Then when it hits, they're overjoyed.

thats why i hate bs nuxx live...

i was at the knebworth gig last year and the bloke next to me asked me three times if the track playing was born slippy, each time he was wrong, eventually when the track did come on he only recognised it from the pianos and mainly sung the 'lager lager lager' bit - n00b

sadly a large majority of ppl only know underworld for this one track by name, when i say who's my favoruite band i would like to say, you know, 'moaner', 'juanita', 'dubnobass'... sadly i have to go 'born slippy' and if they don't recall from that i have to go - the song that goes lager lager lager...

i don't hate the track per se, but in a kind of snobbish fanboy way, i want to educate people into better more subtle underworld tracks....

the other issue is that BS nuxx was never on an album and as such, ppl only bought the single and never really went to to buy dubno / stiti because it didn't have that track on it... it is an epic anthem, but its overplayed over hyped and i could enjoy a uw live show more if bs nuxx wasn't going to be played!

not gonna happen i know

that's the price you pay when you choose to fall madly in love with ARTISTS rather than mainstream acts. if you wanted everyone to know who your favorite musical act was, you could always say "madonna."

Re: Not another Nuxx thread, surely?
i actually LIKE the full 11minute version of nuxx....especially the second
half of the song.....but i don't think they've EVER played it live, go figure..

i keep waiting for the break, and the beats, but it NEVER gets played,
same with the TELEMATIC version.....or some of the other mixes of it..

maybe someday..

later

Yeah, but to be fair, the tent was jammed full of Sasha and Digweed fans, who had been playing for the previous 3 hours. No surprise that you were standing next to a n00b - I had two blokes standing next to me who spent the whole of the gig blathering on about what they had done the weekend before and what they were doing the weekend after. Waste of valuable UW fan space, imo

True - I don't think it would reasonable to expect the band to play a gig without their biggest hit in it though. Unless of course they were going to do a special invitation-only gig for us lot.

But I still get a buzz from the crowd reaction every time, even though NUXX is not my fave number by a long chalk.

Re: Not another Nuxx thread, surely?
Fuck me, this is one of the worst versions of Nuxx i've had the displeasure of not just hearing, but having to watch this muppet clap / pray and walk on the decks while taking credit for playing a record that someone else made, and some other idiot then remixed into some trance hell. Johan Gielen is a king twat. For a change, he isnt from the Netherlands tho like his twat contemporaries Tiesticles and Armin van Boring. He's from just over the border in Belgium.

I did appreciate NUXX at the roundhouse on the 28th Feb. That was pretty damn good. A return to form. This version and this fannying around by the talentless git behind the decks is just an insult. Thanks for wasting my time.

You're welcome.

The point was the crowd reaction, not the dj, or even the version of NUXX, but hey...

Re: Not another Nuxx thread, surely?
the thing is with that nobend Johan Gielen, is that the crowd were not specifically reacting to the tune, yes the tune was part of the event - and it does get reactions, but any big tune from 'that era', coupled with the stupid lasers, god like apperance of the arse of a dj and the stupid stuff falling onto the crowd would have, imo, prompted the same reaction

trouble with trance crowds is that they nod along for 2 and a half hours and raise their hands for the rest of the night when any relevant breakdown or key point of an anthem kicks in... it could have been any number of classic club tunes creating the same reaction, let alone a bastardised version of an Underworld tune which only uses about three key elements of the original NUxx version

the crowd reaction is more disturbing than endearing imo, because they are praising a fuckwit of a DJ for playing a record they like, fuck me, put chris moyels up there.... anyone can play born slippy off vinyl, but only one band made it and plays it live....

imo, its a weak assed lame dj that plays born slippy to get his kicks from a crowd, play something original or from your own vast collection Johan... or fuck off back to belgium, you twat

long live Underworld...

still its a good debate....
