“It is common for score tracks to be rather short but [“Bruce’s Plan”] still gets the listener’s (and watcher’s) attention and the adrenaline rushes quite a bit.” – MxDwn

ABOUT ORBITAL
Though they might not have envisioned it when they recorded debut single Chime inside a cupboard at their parents’ house for less than a fiver, Orbital would go on to become giants of electronic music.
Phil and Paul Hartnoll both redefined what dance music could do and the place it took within popular culture itself. Their music has influenced and inspired artists from Björk to Bicep and the brothers have collaborated with minds as diverse as Madonna, Kraftwerk, Professor Stephen Hawking and – in one of their many memorable Glastonbury performances – an actual Time Lord, in the shape of Doctor Who actor Matt Smith.

Despite its inauspicious beginnings at the Hartnoll family home in Kent, Chime became a huge hit on the underground rave scene and when re-released by FFRR Recordings in 1990 it leaped into the UK top twenty. It was an unwitting act of cultural subversion that placed the Cabaret Voltaire and Crass-loving siblings in the inauspicious surroundings of Top Of The Pops, where they pointedly unplugged their synthesisers and wore anti-Poll Tax t-shirts – sticking two fingers up to both the stuffy BBC and Margaret Thatcher’s government.

Following 1991’s debut album and a string of successful EPs, their second self-titled album – aka The Brown Album – cemented Orbital’s position as musical visionaries. With four tracks linked together into a 26-minute epic, it broke down and rebuilt ideas of what electronic music could do. A career of creative leaps quite unlike those usually seen in the fast turnover world of dance music followed, including soundtracking Hollywood films including 1997’s Event Horizon and performing at the 2012 Paralympics with Professor Stephen Hawking.

Alongside their boundary-pushing work in the recording studio, Orbital earned a reputation as one of the best live acts on the planet. Unlike many of their dance contemporaries at the time, Orbital didn’t rely on pre-programmed DAT tapes and instead took a far more fast-thinking, improvisational approach, meaning that any gig can present a multitude of organic mutations of their songs.

They completely reinvented the notion of what a “dance” act could do live and turned multitudes of rock fans on to the limitless pleasures of electronic music. It’s not for nothing that the band’s colossal set at Glastonbury Festival in 1994 is regularly cited as one of the greatest gigs of all time.

Following a hiatus between 2004 and 2008, the brothers re-united and Orbital continue to record and perform across the globe, inspiring a whole new generation of talent. It’s a story laid out in this years’ ‘30-Something’ celebrations. The pandemic meant that Orbital missed their actual thirtieth anniversary, but it gave Paul and Phil pause to think and find a way to celebrate their past that was actually about the future. Unlike other Best Of’s, the ‘30-Something’ album contains reworks, remakes, remixes and re-imaginings of landmark Orbital tracks based on the duo’s unrivalled live show. Satan, The Box, Impact, Belfast and more appear in new 30-something guises, familiar yet new, time reversing, yesterday becoming tomorrow.
 

What if a secret society of five men has been working to influence world events for the greater good since the Black Plague of 1347? As this new series begins, one unlikely Canadian journalist finds himself embroiled in a mission to uncover the truth and just possibly save the world himself. Remember, the Pentaverate must never be exposed!

 

The Pentaverate now streaming on Netflix!
