Underworld : King of snake

Still, at least it doesn't mention Ibiza.

If Killing Joke's 1979 debut single, 'Turn To Red',

were speeded up,

then you might end up with a song not dissimilar to 'King Of

Snake
'.

Happily for the men of Underworld, anyone who hasn't been

working in

music retail for ten years would have no idea of this particular fact. Karl Hyde, however, is about 100 years old and should

be

wincing with shame.





'King Of Snake' was promoed last year and after, cough,

considerable

public demand has now been released. It's, y'know, OK, but it's going to take a lot more than this, even with a Fatboy Slim

remix, to save dance music. Still, at least it doesn't mention Ibiza.
