Underworld – Paradiso – 2015

Preface

Today, May 10th 2017, Karl Hyde, singer of the great Underworld, turns 60 years old.

Underworld was one of the more important acts that popularized the dance and club culture. Their fantastic album dubnobasswithmyheadman was highly important. An extremely good album, followed by (the even better?) Second Toughest In The Infants and (highly appreciated, by me anyway) Beaucoup Fish.

The live-album Everything, Everything from 2000 is part of my album top 50 (number 28).

In 2015 en 2016 Underworld played at the Paradiso in Amsterdam. Both concerts were memorable. Unbelievably good shows with lots of very loud, driving music that sounded perfectly and Karl Hyde who blew his mind, in his own inimitable way.

As a tribute to Karl Hyde and Underworld, the 10 best Underworld singles in order of release.
