Re: Wonky Album Review

Interesting that Paul is credited alone for writing the album apart from Beezledub and Wonky.... Being the geek I am I actually noticed this reading the inlay before even listeing to the album. Truly bizarre, is it not?? Phil was there in the studio for all but one of the diaries??? Or did Paul jus...

Re: Wonky Album Review

I'd absolutely echo two things people have been saying. One is that it's by far the best album by them for many, many years and secondly that the only thing to have really made it better would have been for some of the tracks to push on for a bit longer - I could happily double the length of many. ...

Re: Orbital on BBC6 ALL day this Friday (16th March)

Crap! How many actually got in then? Well others here my be able to give you more accurate figures than me but I'd reckon there were about 80 people ahead of me in the queue but I'm guessing there really - I didn't count! Basically it looks to me like the bbc massively over-allocated tickets. Those...

Re: Orbital on BBC6 ALL day this Friday (16th March)

I really feel for you mate. I was very concerned about not being close enough to the door. I would have been very gutted. Cheers mate. It was my wander off piste out of the tube to get a packet of fags what done it. Cost me that crucial 2 or 3 minutes. On the other hand that would only have meant t...

Re: The gig wish

I loved the OTS/Mobius thing from the last tour.. Somthing similar would be brilliant again as the surprise opener. Perhaps Nothing Left spliced with say, Midnight.

Judging by the comments of those round these parts from those who have heard it that certainly seems to be the case.
