The Orb: Mystic Pizza

Andy Gill, Q, November 1992

They're cooking up something deeply strange in the sound kitchen. The Orb explore your inner space with endless sonic dreamscapes that suggest a planet where UFOs are buzzing the mountains and Pink Floyd's pig soars once again above Battersea Power Station. "Perfect relaxation music for the 1990s," they tell Andy Gill.
