Underworld’s improvisatory approach to songwriting is good news for box sets. No need to look down the back of the sofa for demos when you have hours of unreleased material. In fact, you could construct another two albums from offcuts as substantial as the serpentine Bloody 1 and the slow-burning Bug. While their debut, dubnobasswithmyheadman, showed the trio discovering their sound, their second album, released in 1996, found them mastering it. It’s more abstract, fluid and expansive, extending its tentacles into diamond-hard techno and the relatively new sound of drum’n’bass during audaciously long art-rave suites that end up some distance from where they began. The fourth disc tracks the complicated evolution of their biggest hit, Born Slippy (Nuxx), via seven different versions, making the listener feel like part of the workshopping process. Underworld’s brilliance came from knowing what to leave out – but what they left out was pretty damn good. … [Read more...] about Underworld: Second Toughest in the Infants box set review – abstract, expansive art-techno

A pensioner has been reunited with long-lost photos of his late mother after spotting her in snaps a photographer found in a vintage camera. Graeme Webb, from Hawick, Scottish Borders, came across a Kodak Portrait Brownie 620 when he was browsing a charity shop in Edinburgh and bought it for just £25. The 40-year-old was shocked to find a reel of film inside the old camera that had images from the 1950s and 1960s on it. Fascinated, Mr Webb launched a media appeal to find out who was in the photos and to his delight he was contacted by Tam Watson, 73, from Edinburgh. The retired printer got in touch to say his mother Sally was the subject of one of the photographs and the pair got together soon after to make sure they were returned to their rightful owner. Tam Watson recognised his mother Sally (pictured left) in an old picture found on a reel of film inside a vintage camera bought by Scottish photographer Graeme Webb earlier this week The … [Read more...] about Box Brownie of treats: Retired printer, 73, is reunited with lost 1950s family photos after spotting mother in appeal to find owner of snaps found in old camera
I knew What The Golf? was brilliant just a few minutes after it began. An early hole was structured such that I could bank a shot off a mound and a get a hole in one, as opposed to sloppily shooting around an obstacle—in this case, some cats chilling out nearby. Setting up this shot made me feel clever. I charged up my meter and sent the ball soaring. It bounced off the mound and into a nearby cluster of explosive barrels, which proceeded to blow up all of the cats. I laughed out loud in surprise. Since then, many What The Golf? levels have made me do that. Laugh out loud in surprise, I mean, not blow up cats, although that’s happened a fair amount, too. What The Golf?, which is out now on PC and the Apple Arcade, posits two ideas that seem contradictory at first: Regular old golf is boring, but also, with a little bit of ingenuity, anything can (and should) be golf. Moving furniture around? It’s golf. Avoiding traffic? It’s golf. Propelling your own fleshy bone … [Read more...] about What The Golf
Retired Baltimore Ravens legend Ed Reed made a statement at Thursday's NFL 'Hall of Fame' game by wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the pictures of African-Americans who have been killed in racist incidents over the last few years. Reed, who is set to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, was expected to wear the modest, short-sleeved polo shirt like the other inductees. Instead, the 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year wore a white t-shirt featuring nine faces, including Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin.

Birds Eye fish fingers and Walkers crisps are asking supermarkets for price rises of up to 12%, in the latest standoff between household brands and retailers over the dramatic fall in the value of the pound. The brands have joined Typhoo and Unilever, the owner of Marmite, and a number of smaller suppliers in an industry-wide battle over price increases caused by the 14.5% drop in the value of the pound against the euro and 18% against the dollar since the UK voted to leave the European Union. Birds Eye, which is owned by New-York-listed Nomad Foods, is seeking price rises of as much as 12% as it said many of its raw materials were priced in dollars and so its sterling costs had risen. Birds Eye is said to be threatening to shrink pack sizes on some products to help offset cost increases, cutting the number of fish fingers in a packet, for example, from 12 to 10 or from 20 to 18. Wayne Hudson, Birds Eye’s UK and Ireland managing director, said: “Increasing costs is not a … [Read more...] about Birds Eye and Walkers ask supermarkets for up to 12% price rises
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A great start by the Eagles turned into a brutal loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday. The Birds need to rally through the final stretch of the season in order to keep their playoff hopes alive, starting this week against the Seattle Seahawks. CBS3’s football experts have your Week 12 breakdown and predictions. Well, that was brutal. The play calling was questionable throughout in the Eagles’ 17-10 loss to the defending Super Bowl champs. What happened and why did Doug Pederson decide to go away from Miles Sanders? Sports director Don Bell: In the later stages of the game, it felt like Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz began to press. Running takes patience and that’s hard to maintain when you’re worried the G.O.A.T will make you pay. The Eagles went ground-and-pound against the Bills — 218 rushing yards — and Bears — 146 rushing yards — so we know they’re capable of controlling a game via … [Read more...] about Eagles-Seahawks Week 12 Predictions: Can Carson Wentz And Birds Get Back On Track Against Seattle?
