Re: What would be your perfect Underworld setlist?
Way to have me blow an hour at work

I think last time i came up with one of these here i just did a relentless marathon of sweaty dancing that no one should have the energy to do on a nightly basis. Even today it's hard to not do that, but i attempted a kind of buildup to it with some breaks in the middle to keep it interesting on a sensory basis. Also trying to keep it on the short end because I err more towards the Lightning Bolt approach to a live gig.

the essential idea of it is all the big hit energy with less of the actual hits. live, loose, and will light you up.

Silver Boots/Pins
King of Snake (Sept 97)
Juanita/Kiteless/Deep Pan
Pearl's Girl/Push Upstairs (full on! enough with the "straight up" one)
Strumpet Groove/Confusion the Waitress
Dexter's Chalk
Border Country
Please Help Me / Cappe Ffuno
Why Why Why
BYTWB/NUXX (w/ 2003 piano in the back half)

This feels like a fun challenge to just mix one myself. Will start brainstorming!

Re: What would be your perfect Underworld setlist?
Okay... here's my initial setlist

Builds up quickly, followed by a few slower ones, then it picks up at the end.

1) Cups (without ‘Pins’)
2) Confusion the Waitress; add ‘Pins’ to the end, transitioning to…
3) Juanita / Kiteless
4) Born Slippy (Original)
5) Pearl’s Girl
6) Push Upstairs
7) Back in the Fears
8) 5 Points
9) Glam Bucket
10) Appleshine
11) Jumbo
12) Luetin
13) Dark Train
14) Deep Arch*
15) 020202
16) Born Slippy .NUXX + ’03

* and I haven't checked the bpm's, but I'd imagine that there could be a good medley / mash-up using "Deep Arch" and "Schiphol Test"

Re: What would be your perfect Underworld setlist?
I'm not going to attempt this because a) difficult to choose 16 or less favorite tracks from a favorite band, b) haven't got the time to think about sequencing, i mean really think about how this would play out live, and c) choices would likely change tomorrow.

i will say that i really like the posted mixes (dubman, i'd pay for your gig, guaranteed. You had me at cappe ffuno!), the efforts for diversity/obscurity!

Re: What would be your perfect Underworld setlist?
Thanks man

I also like how these setlists have something different to give. Purlieu’s sounds like when a band make a stop at somewhere different than usual, like a library or a park, with a different crowd coming out for an intimate night where they stop to talk to the small group that gathered in. Joe’s reminds me of the LHN days if it got defibrillated, and neorev is if they were the most generous band on the planet.
