Suprised nobody mentioned this wonderful breaks version of PHUK(U) yet.

Are you calling Whitenoise Nobody?

I love Orbital so much. Here they come and improve on their lead single P.H.U.K. with an alternate mix "P.H.U.K.U." (Please Help United Kingdom, Urgent). Which is featuring on a real proper upcoming single release alongside another remix by the one and only Steve Dub!

Ive only listened to the album once, but so far nothing gives me more enjoyment than P.H.U.K.U. - which isn't on the album.

Here's Orbital mentioning the third disc that Neorev mentioned above (nice to see Phil looking happy):

And Neorev, like totally! No, maybe I should consult a doctor on early stage dementia. Geez.

This came up on my youtube feed if you guys haven't seen it already, watch before it gets torn down:


...'cause I don't like whats going on in the world. I'm scared of that...

Monster of a show. Impact > PHUK > Wonky is unbelievable, I cannot overstate how efficient that sequence is at driving you into an absolute 110% raving frenzy.

That's me in the Way Out shirt at 28:33 and 59:59 losing my dignity on BBC TV. Loved hearing The End is Nigh for the very first time live, getting to hear Belfast, in Belfast, and getting the Doctor encore which wasn't on the printed setlist. Paul snuck out side of stage to check out the crowd during changeover. I caught his eye and waved, and he gave a thumbs up! Not shown in this video was a huge tech breakdown between Wonky and Tiny Foldable Cities - I shouted "play Little Fluffy Clouds" during that.

Funny story - my face was plastered all over the giant screens to the side of stage too, which made me a minor celebrity at the end of the festival. Two local brothers recognized me on the way out of the fest and insisted I go out drinking with them after they found out I was travelling alone. Couldn't say no to that. Turned out to be fantastic people along with the friends they were with - talked with one of them about U2 for a solid hour, music and American culture with the rest of them for a long time - and got quite a few free drinks after we got on so well. Unfortunately I literally hadn't eaten anything since lunch so the 6 pints I had took the toll of 20, and to make a long story short - I've absolutely no memory of how I got back to the hostel, and absolutely no clue where in Belfast my glasses still are.

Beck, Manic Street Preachers, Courtney Barnett and Public Service Broadcasting were on before Orbital too, just a killer line up. My only regret is not snagging one of the lineup t-shirts!

If anyone comes to the SF show and needs a place to crash, let me know.

Also, I am more than likely going to be headed down to the LA show 2 days later. So I'll be hitting up 2/3 of the Orbital shows in the U.S. for this tour. HA.

Much love.

Losing your dignity? Nope, you did what you were supposed to do and many of the selfie-smaprtphone generation have forgotten: Dance and have fun! The only one who lost his dignity that night is the yawning guy who comes in at min 59:50 in the lower right-hand corner!

Awesome story! Things like these are just the cherry on top of those experiences! Nothing better than unexpectedly meeting nice people like at the Chems gig in Gelsenkirchen with the forum gang and some strangers (or like recently, when I met an Texan American in our neighborhood while walking my sisters dog and we talked for almost half an hour) that make it all even more memorable.

Btw, just spotted you at 16:14 too :D

PPS: the only bad thing about this gig is Paul wearing a (Star Trek) Disco(very) shirt because that show is just an utter disappointment (oh, and that "Haven is a place" part is a bit out of place imo).

Paul gives a studio tour:



Nevermind the synths. Pay attention to the whiteboard on the wall - there's notes on their live set and for their next album Orbital 30, which they've been talking about recently. It's planned to be a 30th anniversary compilation of new "live style" versions of all their classic tracks, and remixes from their contemporaries...

...listed on that board are Underworld, Aphex Twin, Leftfield, The Chemical Brothers, Utah Saints, The Prodigy, and (more of a newcomer) Bicep. Edit: and David Holmes and Vince Clarke

It's a fucking good time to be an Orbital fan.

Bicep was the best 2017 album for me. Absolutely terrific. Just listen (watch the video!) to this track:




That video just hits you with the memories of 90's raves
Can you imagine ..... an extra-terrestrial disc jockey? Like, listening to radio waves from space? It was unbelievable!

I didn't get it.
"Just" was probably my fave dance/electronic track of 2015*. I posted it more than once in the early pages of "Now Playing" on this here 'new' forum (reply #2 and #3 on page 1!). Then I saw great reviews for the album and I got excited. Then I heard the album and... fell asleep. Wanted it to be good. Didn't dislike it, just didn't feel inspired to listen to it more than a couple of times. Maybe I'll try it again some time.

*Chemical Brothers aside
Yea though I walk through the valley and shadow of death

Any NYers seeing the show tonight? Give us a revieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew
i love chem bros omg!!!!!!!!!!!!
