About this album

Beaucoup Fish is the fifth album by Underworld, released in . Recorded in 1997-‘98 it was supposed to be released in 1998 (They still went ahead with their 1998-‘99 tour) but due to delays it wasn’t release until early 1999, consequently the packaging incorrectly lists 1998 as the release year. Following the huge success of the single “Born Slippy .NUXX” from its use in the film, Trainspotting in 1996, Beaucoup Fish was Underworld’s most anticipated release. It spawned several successful singles, including “Push Upstairs”, “Jumbo” and “Moaner”, which was previously used in the film “Batman & Robin” and released as a single in 1997. It is the last studio album to feature Darren Emerson.

The album’s working title was Tonight Matthew, I’m Going to be Underworld, inspired by the famous catchphrase “Tonight , I’m going to be…”, used on the British celebrity impersonation TV programme Stars in Their Eyes. The title was changed to Beaucoup Fish (“beaucoup” being French for “many”), on the basis that the tongue-in-cheek title would be incomprehensible to listeners outside of the United Kingdom. The current title comes from the sampled voices of Cajun fishermen used in the track “Jumbo”.

    Seems to be pretty divisive this one. It's almost like Underworld via the current musical trends. They cover all bases and yet still manage to retain their seemingly boundless passion and conviction. For the first time ever there's songs I'm impelled to skip: Bruce Lee, which I find pretty lifeless, and Push Downstairs which is aimless and totally unnecessary as far as I'm Kon-SERN'd. Depending on the day I might skip one of the big club anthems coz they're pretty overplayed, especially Jumbo. There are some fucking diamonds here though: Cups, Moaner, Winjer, Kittens and Something like a Mama, one of their most distinctive and evocative traXXX.

    STITI would be their best, but this takes it as is their tightest and most focused release. Hell, I might even call it the most focused electronic record I have ever come across.

    I'm absolutely in agree with Terrasidius, I think this is their last great record too. Darren Emerson was probably essential for Underworld as vice versa.
