Orbital; Live At Glastonbury 1994-2004

Maybe even Arctic Monkeys this year, if you were close enough to actually hear anything or were watching it on TV from the comfort of your own home. But for some people, the group who define Glastonbury more than any other are Orbital. Over a...

Orbital : Work 1989-2002

Orbital : Work 1989-2002

It's a fine line between clever and stupid, and it's one that Orbital have walked for the last 13 years. No strangers to the difficult concept, and latterly no strangers to bad musical jokes, the genius in Paul and Phil Hartnoll's scheme has...

Orbital : Brighton Centre

Orbital : Brighton Centre

There is something of a defiant, fightback feel about recent Orbital shows. Maybe it's relief at finally breaking free from their record label, or perhaps a backlash against lukewarm reviews of their ho-hum album 'The Altogether'. Either way the...

Orbital: Sheffield Octagon Centre

Orbital: Sheffield Octagon Centre

When you've been knocking around for over a decade, it's almost inevitable that you're going to get a bit of a drubbing from hacks eager to write you off as yesterday's men. So the critical consensus on the Hartnoll brother's latest missive...

Orbital : The Altogether

Orbital : The Altogether

2001 is not a good time to be a balding dance boffin. Underworld have imploded, Fatboy Slim is down the dumper and the Prodigy are lost in Met Bar hell. Perhaps in an attempt to circumvent this trend, the shiny-pated Paul Hartnoll took the...

Orbital : Nothing Left

Orbital : Nothing Left

And just how many times has ffrr label boss Pete Tong 'controversially' played this on his influential Radio 1 Friday night show? Couldn't tell you, as it happens, but fair play to the big man, even if this isn't an obvious choice of single from...

The Middle Of Nowhere

The Middle Of Nowhere

Keep your brain in a jar and your heart on the beat. Keep an eye out for beauty and a finger on the pulse. And, most importantly, keep moving, on to that silvered future where unimagined musical forms float free in the ether. These are the duties...

Leeds Town & Country

Leeds Town & Country

Ten years in 'techno' and there's still something jocular, juvenile and shock-of-the-new about the spectacular lights on the heads of the Hartnoll brothers, the men who are Orbital , the men who practically invented the whole spooky-spec...
