‘Born Slippy (Nuxx)’ Reimagined For 2015
Ahead of the upcoming re-issue The Creative Commission ran a global competition to reimagine a video for the band’s million-selling single ‘Born Slippy (Nuxx)’.
The winner was Michael McCool with a clip that features slow-mo soccer, a campfire rave in mono and a runaway greyhound. The super-deluxe edition of Second Toughest… includes a disc of seven unreleased recordings that map out the genesis of Born Slippy (Nuxx).
Second Toughest In The Dog Track?
It’s well documented in Underworld lore that both ‘Pearl’s Girl’ and ‘Born Slippy’ took their song titles from greyhounds.
By way of a tribute we’ve created an old skool ‘Second Toughest’ racing game that allows you to pit your wits against ‘Slippy’, ‘Pearl’ and a host of others whose names might also sound familiar (‘Rowla’? ‘Sappy’s Curry’? ‘Juanita’?).
Crack those knuckles and get those fingers working and play here to get your name in lights on the leaderboard.
6Music Album Of The Day
