Hailing from Romford, Essex, England, Karl Hyde and Rick Smith started out in 1983 as members of quirky new-wave pop band Freur. Freur became Underworld in 1987 and in 1988 the band struck chart success with single Underneath the Radar. This incarnation also had a minor hit on the US pop charts and a moderate hit on US alternative radio with Stand Up, which remains their biggest hit in that country. This initial lineup consisted of Hyde, Smith, Alfie Thomas, Bryn Burrows, Baz Allen and Pascal Consoli before sinking back into obscurity and disbanding in 1990.
