And Then There Were Two: Underworld

Ben Thompson, Independent, The, 25 August 2000

I SAW KARL HYDE get on a train with his baby daughter once, at Liverpool Street station. On the face of it, this was not the most dramatic of celebrity sightings (Though the Underworld frontman's lustrous blond highlights and strangely elasticated stance do stand out in a crowd). And yet there was something magical about happening across him in the midst of a trip he's made mythic.
