UNDERWORLD REVEAL LOST 20-YEAR OLD DEMO

'Birdstar' is from their 'Dubnobasswithmyheadman' period

Underworld have just revealed a 20-year old demo from their 'Dubnobasswithmyheadman' period.

'Birdstar' feels like vintage Underworld, and some of the track's elements were subsequently used in other tracks — such as their remixes of Bjork's 'Human Behaviour' and 'Black Sky' by Shakespeares Sister.

The lost demo comes just before the re-release of their remastered classic 'Dubnobass...' album on October 6th, and the performance of it in full at London's Royal Festival Hall on Saturday 11th October.

Hear the dubby, tripped-out 'Birdstar' here: 

Darren Emerson, of course, left Underworld in 2000, while Karl Hyde and Rick Smith have carried on to this day.
