So… Orbital have called it a day (again).
A couple of weeks late catching up with this news, but there you go. Although, as Paul Hartnoll puts it, “Orbital had stopped working properly. We had a great four years since getting back together in 2008, but it was time to move on.”
So it’s not the first they’ve put the brakes on, but sounds like Paul and Phil with be in different orbits for the time being. Will keep an ear out for the solo stuff (Paul’s album, ‘8.58’ is forthcoming, apparently).
In the meantime, here’s one of my old favourites: ‘I Don’t Know You People’ from their 1999 Album, ‘The Middle Of Nowhere’ (which is brilliant start to finish).
