Album review: Underworld - Barking (Cooking Vinyl)

In the ’90s, everyone loved Underworld and feared the millennium bug. Hence, it makes odd sense that the band has been misfiring consistently since 1999’s ‘Beaucoup Fish’ . With ‘Barking’ , they manage to spark into life just...

Underworld: 'Oblivion With Bells'

Underworld: 'Oblivion With Bells'

Underworld  : Anthology 1992-2002

Underworld : Anthology 1992-2002

Everything, Everything

You've probably experienced it yourself, first-hand. But where? At a gig? A festival? A Soho art gallery? Sitting on the tube, headphones blaring? Or locating a vein with Renton , Sick Boy , Begbie and Spud ? The Underworld Experience comes...

London Charing Cross Astoria

London Charing Cross Astoria

It's a mega, mega ten-year thing. The seed that germinated as an early-'90s club, grew a fanzine, a label - JBO - and a trance steamroller known as Underworld is celebrating ten years and the crowd is hungry for posh rave thrills. It's...
