Am I reading that right as slippy AND nuxx or is there just an extra new line? If so, wow, that's been hiding away for a while....

I always think of Nuxx as starting with the heaven chords, and Born Slippy as the drums. Maybe that's just me?

NUXX live starts with drums, rather than the chords like the album version.

Alas the crowd was talkative last night too. Too much so.

I thoug Tongue, River Of Bass, m.e. and Bigmouth seemed to deflate the crowd a little. The response to Dirty Epic, Cowgirl, Rez, Born Slippy etc was euphoric as normal.

It was a DJ set. I was asking about this on the Bristol thread pre-gig yesterday, Steve Hall was mentioned but I don't know for sure who was DJing. Even a guy at the venue could only tell me it was a "very special guest dj"

I agree with you on the tracks that the crowd got excited about. I just think its a shame that the crowd couldn't/wouldn't listen to the quieter tacks that you mention. I thought Bigmouth was reasonably well received, at least when Karl was honking on the harp.

This is why I'm generally not all that enthusiastic about the whole of dubnobass being played from begining to end.. there are tracks fro this album which just don't work in big venues. Tongue, and River of Bass are the obvious examples. I thought M.E. was pretty good but the audience were too loud and pissed up to make it enjoyable.

It would be enough to do the tour in honour of the 20th anniversary and play the biggest tracks but swap those slower numbers out for a couple of classics from second toughest or beaucoup fish.

Then the fact that every track sounds exactly as it does on the album removes much of what I loved Underworld's live shows for... the tweaking and experimenting with effects and delays and tempos in the stems, the seamless blending of tunes together, the overall manipulation which set every night separately apart. Rick not being there just dampened the overall effect. Darren did ok like, but he's not one to take the limelight or do anything interesting with the music. It's not his to mess about with anyway.

Personally I hope they'll get back to playing more of the better tracks from all the first three albums, and start mixing it up a bit more on stage. I want to see a live show, not a playback with live vocals.
