Sincere thanks to UW: we'll pay for it!
Rick and Karl, if you read this, please know that you have some of the most devoted and appreciative fans. Your output has been prolific and your generosity unbelievable. So, thanks again from the bottom of our dirty hearts!

We also understand that there are businesses to run and mouths to feed, so we don't expect everything given to us for free. Free is nice and grand, of course, and through your radio broadcasts and UnderworldLive, we've received a lot of tunes and happy memories.
But we've also heard snippets of studio works (e.g. "Always Loved a Film") or live tracks (e.g. "You Do Scribble", "Darc"), that have made deep impressions on us.

So, rather than the usual threads where we say "Gee, it would be great if R&K released "X" or the like, here's something of a petition from the fans, that we'd willingly support the band monetarilyif these tracks were released, perhaps as the next RiverRun download project or via your label, whatever method is most efficient. We're not dirty greedy dirts. We just love Underworld so much we crave tunes. I think we're addicted.

Dirties, pledge your continued allegiance and make your virtual request for official (purchaseable) release of UW's B-sides and rarities!

my thoughts exactly. since the OP pointed out that only UW would be able to determine which option was most financially feasible, why should we petition for either one?

i think if the poll were "would you be willing to pay for the release, yes/no?" the answer would be unanimously "yes."

Re: Sincere thanks to UW: we'll pay for it!
That's the point, though...this is hopefully just to show in numbers that we're willing to pay and don't expect everything for free. I was being cheeky with the options, but think of this as a petition where your signature is a vote for "yes" or "yes"!

Re: Sincere thanks to UW: we'll pay for it!
If they would make some kind of compilation of these (and other) tracks a-la riverrun I'd definitely pay, and would be glad to pay a bit more than the riverruns (would be nice to maybe offer FLAC versions for a slightly higher price as well). Would be cool to have these tracks released also so we can get to hear dj's play some original underworld tracks again rather than just remixes (obviously none of uw's recent output has been particularly dj-friendly, although there were definitely some great remixes)

Yes, I'd definitely vote with my wallet, too.
Nice of Rick to put the record straight about download quality as well - i.e. Rick wants the highest quality out there, Karl/Management think 192Kbs is sufficient.

isn't the point of making mixes, to make dj's want to play them?

why would they want to play album tracks? (maybe dinosaur adventure 3d
was the last, and before that king of snake...but pretty much they have
all been playing remixes)..

I would love to have those tracks in studio quality.

But it seems only fair to have it like it is;
da best. : and the mistery about some unreleased tracks is good. We are lucky to be treated like we are treated.

We are spoiled fans. Rick and Karl are too good.

What band does live broadcasts now and then and updates their website DAILY?

I think Underworld are the only one up there.

THE best band in the world.
