Well, that was "5 Foot 5", a Pricey track, from the Akademik gig.

Re: Bells & Circles Ft. Iggy Pop
I don't think anyone mentioned this yet, but in the post-gig interview on the radio, Karl mentioned that this track came out of collaborations with Iggy that were done for possible use in T2, but ultimately were not. But they recorded this with him, as well as some other tracks that might be forthcoming.

Makes a lot more sense in the T2 context. Thatís a film about deeply flawed people getting older and living in a modern world thatís evolved beyond their abilities to keep up. Think of Rentonís rants in both films and you can sort of justify Iggyís as a similar rant from another angle. Which is not to say itís any good. The substance is still an old man complaining about he can no longer do destructive things to himself and other people without consequences, which runs directly against the cultural moment in which the song finds itself.

Re: Bells & Circles Ft. Iggy Pop
...can I get an instrumental on this? I like Iggy, but seriously... khouri is right, this is just an old man's rant set to the background of some amazing music by Rick. Not sure if I'm willing to dish out cash for this and I pretty much buy everything underworld... when it comes to audio.

Re: Bells & Circles Ft. Iggy Pop
The Iggy Pop rant is cringey and dumb. The music is okay but nowhere close to what they're capable of doing. So this is a thumbs down for me.

Re: Bells & Circles Ft. Iggy Pop
Not sure why people are getting their knickers in a twist about Iggy Pop. It's Iggy Pop. He's an old rock star. A rebel. Wasn't rock and roll supposed to be anti-PC? About "misbehaving"? Having fun? He talks about hitting on a stewardess. Oh my, how terribly sexist.

Sure it's a "rant" from a guy from another time but this #MeToo sensitivity can go too far you know.
I was happy though that some more Underworld-y vocals came in later in the track with the "sunlight on my wings" refrain.

Fun track. Would listen again. I actually like the video this time too.
