im not holding my breath, but this would get me back to Coachella... most likely.
And it would be a big bonus for me since I'd already be there.
coachella is always fun but its gestations have driven me away
Well, I'm not a world traveler, so I just make do with the closest decent festival to me.
thats what most consumers look for- ease and decency
here's a cool three hour mix
i think if they end up touring the states again it would have to be on a festival circuit.... that last tour for Barking was no bueno.
So about tomorrow....
I know the opening ceremony will be televised but will we be able to hear the music or is it one of those things were it will be in the background while announcers talk to us about each country?
I'm guessing both. What time does it start?
starts at 7:30 for me... i have dish on the west
and there's this, for those worried they won't be able to hear it. which I'm sure you will anyways.....
the music that will provide the soundtrack to the London 2012 Olympic Games Opening and Closing Ceremonies will be made available within moments of the Ceremonies ending.
Underworld is one of my all time favorites. If they are at coachella I would have to rethink not going.
this is some of the most powerful music underworld has ever created.
I think it's happening!
because of Mexico.... thats why.
please please please
Yes. This. Thank you Jason! :thu
Signed. Again. Always and forever...
If you don't support this you must be some kind of monster
Haven't given up hope. We got this!
Kind of surprised this hasn't gotten more discussion considering their Mexico date.
This is probably in my top 5 wishlist for this year.
Top 3 for me.
there are 2 mexico dates now.
Underworld seems more doubtful now.
A flurry of activity from Underworld;
April 2013 will see the release of Karl Hyde’s debut solo LP, Edgeland. It features nine tracks that were recorded over a year in London with multi-instrumentalist and producer Leo Abrahams (whom Karl met whilst collaborating with Brian Eno on Pure Scenius). Edgeland is a graceful and meditative collection that explores the limitless possibilities of what late film director Anthony Minghella christened ‘esoteric Underworld’ – something that’s existed on record since Dubnobasswithmyheadman.
Edgeland is released in Japan on April 10th and across the rest of the world on April 22nd on deluxe CD/DVD, standard CD, download and 12" vinyl. It is also available for physical pre-order in the underworldlive shop. The first 150 pre-orders from underworldlive (across all physical formats) will each receive a unique, signed and numbered photograph taken by Karl documenting the journeys through the edgelands that inspired the album. Each physical format purchase will also receive a digital version of the album in their inbox on the day of release (we of course aim to have pre-ordered physical stock with you on or very close to that date).
You can hear the first taster from Edgeland - 'Cut Clouds' and for a limited time only download the track for free here http://www.karlhyde.com/
Karl is currently rehearsing a new band in preparation for a series of live shows from the Spring onwards, the first of which is SonarSound in Tokyo on the 7th April 2013. More to be announced soon.

As you may have read or heard on the world-wide-grapevine, Rick rolled straight out of his music directorial role on the London 2012 Opening Ceremony and into writing and recording the score for Danny Boyle’s new movie Trance. Staring James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel and Rosario Dawson, the film is due for release on March 27th 2013 in the UK.
You can check out the film’s trailer here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKdm-...ature=youtu.be
I don't want to travel all the way to Mexico to see Underworld, but I will. UW is my favorite, and they are literally the last living group I want to see and never have. (I was dying of food poisoning during their set in '03). If they are on the poster, look toward the SF Bay for the fireworks shooting out of my skull.
