Re: The Orb
I have a feeling that they'd be nowhere as good now as they were before
or so. They have really changed their style since then. I really liked
they did up to the "Orbus Terrarum" CD, and I think the "Pomme Fritz" CD
one of the best electronic CD's to come out in the 90's.
For an interesting discovery, check out The Tape-Beatles. In 1991, the Orb
got a hold of their first two tapes, and have been integrating the
from it into their shows. You'd be surprised by how many things you once
thought were created by the Orb, when in fact, they were just playing a
Beatles tape. The first few minutes of "Live 93" are a perfect example.
