In 1999 Karl Hyde began writing a public diary. Every day since then, Hyde has documented his thoughts, lyrical works-in-progress, poetry and biographical essays alongside ‘found’ visuals. For the last sixteen years, these entries have collectively created an on-going, utterly unique monologue on Underworld’s website.
I Am Dogboy handpicks a selection of diary entries and rearranges them, intercut with an autobiographical narrative, that follows Hyde from childhood through to the exploratory early years of Underworld, an electronic act who have been peerless for the last twenty-five years. Spliced throughout the narrative are standalone/abstract poetic pieces that offer occasional snapshots of life on the road and in the studio and give an insight into Hyde’s singular style of lyric writing.
