Slippy

With three thousand other people
At the Dome’s packed concert hall
We in anticipation waited
For the virtual curtain call

We had waited twenty years
To see this favourite band
And feel the rhythm as it grabbed us
And hear the drumming at first hand

And we weren’t disappointed
Underworld were at their best
Doing ‘Cowgirl’, ‘Rez’ and ‘Spoonman’
‘Dirty Epic’ and the rest

Brighton rocked with rhythm
Drums were loud and beat was long
Three thousand people dancing
To that ‘Born Slippy’ song

Underworld , a progressive house/electronic dance band from London, are currently part-way through their UK/European “Dubnobasswithmyheadman” tour. I never got to see them back in the day (late 80’s/early 90’s) but have long wanted to. Last night provided the means when they played Brighton. That’s one more thing ticked off from my bucket list!
