"Born Slippy" is a single by British electronic group Underworld. It was originally released in January 1995 as a single, and has never appeared on an album by the group. The track is instrumental and features no lyrics. It is often confused with the more popular vocal track, "Born Slippy .NUXX", because of the similar name. However, they are completely different in composition and sound. The single peaked on the UK Singles Chart in 1995 at #52.[1] The song title comes from the name of a greyhound that the band had bet on and won.[2]

Notes[edit]

  • "Born Slippy" is sometimes given the label (original) or (instrumental) to distinguish it from its much more popular b-side, "Born Slippy .NUXX", which features vocals by Karl Hyde.
  • Song was inspired by Bill Bailey.[4]
  • The song was also covered by japanese industrial rock group UVERworld.
