Orbital - the last One Ever

Maidavale20Orbital were always one step ahead of rave culture. While virtually every other act of the era was forgotten in a haze of bland beats, the brothers Hartnoll recognised the power of the album as a piece of art in it's own right, paving the way for such British dance classics as Prodigy's 'Jilted Generation' and The Chemical Brothers' 'Dig Your Own Hole'. From the kaleidoscopic genre-pushing of 1994's 'Snivilisation' to 1999's brutally sleek 'Middle Of Nowhere', Orbital made techno palatable to music fans otherwise ignorant of the club scene, whilst still maintaining their credibility and desire to experiment. They'll always have a place in the heart of electronica heads the world over, if only for their trademark head-mounted flashlights that made them look like moles. Orbital's last and final event was at the John Peel Maida Vale gig. The gig was broadcast on July 28th 2004 on Radio One. Orbital hosted a meetup at the Warrington Hotel on the afternoon for everyone who had won tickets and for those who just wanted to come along for a few drinks. Many of the non-winners decided to try their luck by blagging their way in and it was worthwhile! 20 Radio One competition winners and 20 Orbital invites plus many blaggers (we did it again!) witnessed 1 hour and half set plus an amazing 10 minute encore of an improvised version of "Remind". It started broken down and by the end of the ten minutes was ripping everyones ear drums apart.
