produced by: Underworld
Album: Beaucoup Fish
Although 'kittens' has no lyrics as such, it still posesses an amazingly powerful impact. It follows Underworld's tradition of song names that have little or no (obvious) relation to the subject matter (i.e. 'puppies'). This tune could best be described as "Industrial Machine-Noise Symphonic", remenicent of something Einstürzende Neubauten would have done in the late '70s/early '80s, only this time with some 21st century flair. Those of us who are not K-9 afficanados have been waiting for a 'puppies' counterpart for quite some time.
It is a piece that will also punish a stereo system to the point where it will be a shuddering mass of paper and Ferrite after it gets done with it.
