Cowgirl (JBO)







Incredible how much more cerebral Underworld now seem since Darren

Emerson
's departure. While he milks the international progressive techno DJ

circuit for every penny/peseta/yen/cent available, Karl Hyde and Rick

Smith
can spend their pensions on exciting new technology and the development

of pretty graphics.



'Cowgirl', of course, one of The Classics from

back in the day when the three used to parade around Romford in black leather

trenchcoats, is repackaged here as a brief live edit and benefits negligibly from

the inclusion of John 'Bedrock' Digweed's join-the-dots trance mix

and Futureshock's swirling tech-house interpretation. "Everything,

everything/I'm invisible, I'm invisible/An eraser of love, an eraser of

love", sings Hyde, another fine example of why words and rave don't

necessarily work together.
