    were or who we think we are but what we actually are Yeah I can dance all night but I m going to sleep for a thousand years afterwards The new stuff then isn t the stupendously pacy nosebleed dance music of old because Underworld have done that perfected that and having conquered it have no need to prove that anymore but have new lands to explore And so they will In tonights set though there is a problem and that of pacing The crowd are willing Underworld tonight to be something they aren t willing them wanting them to be a breathless race to the chords of heaven that is Born Slippy For example slotting the brain frying 10 minute euphoria of Two Months Off between respectively a ten minute medley of Ova Nova Nylon Strung and three slower tracks just makes it feel like a sense of dancus interruptus where the songs and the night want to take off and yet we became squashed by the more relaxed groove Brilliant and intimate as the stream of consciousness and understated British repressed grooves 8 Ball and Jumbo are maybe it s not what the night needs at this point Maybe an opening solvo of fast pacy numbers old and new a down point before a final run to the climax whereas at this night the momentum of Two Months off tails off and great and fun as the rarely played 8 Ball and Ring Road Minnaepolis are the audience watch not experience this and it trails a little It s only when Push Upstairs kicks in and then when the venue wakes up with all the lights on and a walking stick gets brandished in the air in euphoria during the midst of a euphoric piano breakdown that somehow it clicks Older tracks such as Juanita Rowla and Dark Train roar like the past 2 decades didn t happen and then we re collectively pulled out of the groove Ultimately the set is constructed in a way that doesn t quite work The pacing is erratic fast slow fast slow slow fast fast fast But then when the faster stuff kicks in everyone forgets it s 10 12 on a Thursday and suddenly it becomes 3 30am on a Sunday 20 summers ago And then the lights come on again and rampaging skull thudding bass is replaced by another sound this time the relentless repetitive whoop of fire alarms emanating from someone presumably having a crafty fag in the toilet The venue is out into the rain and there s a casual sense of keeping calm and carrying on It s wonderfully British Our gang of eight or so shrinks by a couple who feel its late enough and not unreasonably so With about a third of the audience having migrated away by 10 40 the venue reopens the tickets are no longer checked and the balcony is open with hardly anyone in it There s probably 30 of

    release of control of the moment where everything stopped for a second and then roared and it all started again Tonight they perform two of their finest songs Dalliance which for a six minute growl without a chorus is as ever possibly the most gorgeous cacophony that sounds like a heartbroken Spectoresque wall of sound made of angry chainsaws and the rarely performed but absolutely yearning Interstate 5 which is the sound of impossible wishes Now this sounds all flowery but both those songs trade in what The Wedding Present are best at the sound of longing of not being able to be with the one you love and at the same time not being able to not be with them There are new songs and old ones a handful three or four from the coming soon album due in the autumn and a huge number of older songs alongside the aforementioned sit Blue Eyes Click Click Brassneck Kennedy and what is wonderful frustrating and fantabulous at the same time is that The Wedding Present change their set with regularity and the band can seemingly play any song in the bands body of work at the drop of a hat and frequently do I can t recall one song I ve seen at every show they ve played and that in itself is a rarity amongst modern touring bands every band I know of has 5 6 must have songs they play every night The Wedding Present have no such thing but the seeming ability to play anyone of their 201 songs at any time which is wonderful And frustrating when the band play a song like Skin Diving nobody knows it They play like a headline band with an hour that is worth more than most main shows They re not for everyone being near enough musical Marmite but the band they are now the one that they ve evolved into is one they always promised becoming You Should Always Keep in Touch With Your Friends Why Are You Being So Reasonable Now Kennedy 56 Corduroy Click Click Rachel Skin Diving Interstate 5 My Favourite Dress Broken Bow Dalliance Blue Eyes Brassneck Half an hour later and it s The Wonder Stuff I ve seen them many times before and I ve seen good shows and bad ones and this one ranks as at least as good as any other version of the band To the casual observer it isn t The Wonder Stuff but the old line up of the band stopped working together twenty two years ago and so this version of the band is the only one that can be anymore With the newest album 30 Goes Around The Sun out yesterday it s no surprise they don t play several songs from that as hardly anyone knows it And on the 30th anniversary of their first rehearsal The Wonder Stuff release their eighth studio album 30 Goes Around The Sun their fourth album since the

    anthemic tasteful visionary act searching for a modern equivalent of what Mike Scott called The Big Music Unlike some of their peers James feel like a vibrant creative entity A band not made of Frankenplayers but of the original classic lineup near enough the same one that ruled the world in the summer of 1991 and one slowly evolving over time With the core template of their current musical direction set in the late 90 s the band rise on a known side What s to say that hasn t already been said At every step the band are striving reaching hoping grasping for more more more reaching for the stars hoping It s in every second the way the notes rise the rhythms move on the whole damn thing With a divine optimism And whilst the sound hasn t changed the core has there s a reaching a hope But no big songs all of these are intimate in some way but also somehow yearning to bridge the gap between humans from To My Surprise and Nothing But Love which may not break any new ground but which confirm and consolidate the bands previous work It s More Of

    old classics to a pacier more measured restrained sound Underworld always knew the power of restraint and release The moment where everything stops drops and then all of a sudden it all comes back but faster louder brighter On this the band take their cue from slower more measured songs such as Bird 1 and Jumbo and instead create powerful uncoiled beasts that roll across your ears with a measured determined power like invading tanks moving across a map If Rah for example starts with just a beat And by the end beat after beat bar after bar it s a huge grooving semi Daft Punk thing a monster with huge string sweeps textures and at the heart of it all like all of Hyde s songs the sound of a man lost in the big city Without the need for hit singles as such songs like Low Burn just concentrate on being the best songs they can and not tied to choruses or playlist formats You can just lose yourself in the possibilities and so there s huge textures several minutes of endlessly changing soundscapes the type of thing that draws a clear line between the Then of 1994 s epic Thing In A Book and Dark Train and Now And even now Sanitago Quattro a four minute breather that wouldn t sound out of place at a Leonard Cohen concert is despite being well over 10 years old since it was first played live would probably benefit by not being on the record it breaks the mood and sounds like a different act a different time There s no stone dead 100 instant classics But that isn t the point This isn t a record designed to be played in nightclubs But in Homes and Earphones The record
