Orbital: Blue Album

Nick Southall, Stylus, 24 June 2004

THE END IS NIGH. This summer, after 15 years, Orbital will cease to be, at least in the form that we have known and loved them. It seems wrong to say they've "split up", because the Hartnolls are not only brothers but also an amiable pair. There's been no animosity, no "falling-out" or "musical differences"; the Orbital name will simply produce no more music after the Blue Album.
