Re: ORBITAL - "Never"

Whoa, I thought that just had to do with my iTunes rip of the album or something... the difference is real then?

Re: 2012 Tour reviews.

Lots of videos from the shows are going up on YouTube now. I'm particularly fond of watching the audience get worked up in this short clip of Wonky:

I've watched it 5-6 times and might watch it again right now...

Re: Wonky Album Review

My copy came in on Thursday, just before we picked up the car for our little road trip that I so wanted to get the CD before! Woo! Most of my listening has been in the car with the constant hum of the Autobahn drowning some of it out, but I just had a good listen with headphones this morning and can...

Re: An-ti-cip-ation

arrrrgh my record store was supposed to have it in by now but it hasn't arrived! I was really hoping to have the album for a road trip I'm leaving on tomorrow morning!! I'd buy it elsewhere but I already paid them a deposit on it.

grumble.

Re: How many times have you seen Orbital?

Zero. :( Really hoping they will add non-festival dates in Germany! I wanted to get tickets to Amsterdam or Brussels but while I was trying to find cheap accomodations (not easy in those cities) they both sold out, and I can't pay the cost of travel/rooms without knowing I'll definitely have a ticket!

Re: Wonky album credits - P + ? Hartnoll

To be honest, it might just be as simple as Paul has always written the bulk of the bands material, whereas Phil is more engineering and programming? I was thinking along these lines too. It wouldn't really be at all strange even if Paul really is the only "songwriter" - plenty of bands have only o...

Re: Wonky - Track by track

I thought Phil looked a bit distracted, like maybe he really needed to go to the loo and just wanted to get it over... :P

I like the video though.

Re: Brilliant Video For "Wonky"

Wow. This makes me see the song in a whole new light!! Dan Deacon's "Woof Woof" is coming to mind.... Love it.

Pinku Vaaty "The Hartnolls"

Have any of you heard this track before? An homage of sorts, I guess. I found it by chance on eMusic but have never heard of Pinku Vaaty and don't know who they are, where they are from, or what the deal is with this track.

Re: For those who want to hear a bit more Wonky...

Forgot to comment on the discussion about Doctor ? - I think they definitely should leave this one in, what with how huge the show has gotten in the last couple of years. :)

Re: For those who want to hear a bit more Wonky...

haha, I love a fellow iTunes hater. ;) (I use the player but I don't like their store.) I'm giving in and listening to this. OMG. LOVE. Re: some of the discussion - I like Paul's jacket, very styley, but not very ravey so I see why some don't. I could do without Halcyon in the live set but that's ea...
