Underworld – Born Slippy .NUXX (1995)

EDMclassics | 9 September, 2020

UK electronic music act Underworld are formed by Rick Smith and Karl Hyde in 1987.

In 1996 the former b-side “Born Slippy NUXX” was used in the film “Trainspotting” and became an instant anthem of the mid to late 1990’s and reached #2 in the UK charts.

Karl wrote the lyrics for “Born Slippy .NUXX” after a night drinking, hoping to capture the way a drunk “sees the world in fragments”.

The vocals were recorded in one take; when Hyde lost his place, he would sing the same line repeatedly, creating the line “lager, lager, lager, lager” and the rest is history.
