THE FIRST TIME WITH... SERIES 11 - 1. KARL HYDE (320kbs-m4a/130mb/57mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 19th February 2018
Karl Hyde of Underworld shares his musical milestones with Matt Everitt in a programme first broadcast in 2016.
Karl Hyde is one half of one of the world's greatest electronic bands. Their lyrics are an essential part of their music, and their anthems can fill a club dancefloor, their albums move the mind as much as the feet. They're also as much of a live spectacle as any rock band.
Karl looks back to the start of his musical history - his early passions growing up in Worcester, his first gigs and influences. He also talks about meeting his future Underworld partner Rick Smith and their search to find a creative identity. He also talks about Underworld's first shows, and how they became the acclaimed outfit they are today - taking in the iconic Born Slippy (which had its roots in Karl's own issues with alcohol abuse), through sound-tracking the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony and their 2016 album Barbara Barbara, We Face a Shining Future.
