June 23rd 2008 sees the re-release of a salvo of Orb albums via Universal Catalogue. All 4 albums, Pomme Fritz, Orbus Terrarum, Orblivion &amp Cydonia had been all originally released on Island Records.

All four albums come as two-CD packages and contain completely re-mastered versions of the original albums, deluxe, expanded packaging with sleeve notes from Kris Requirements plus rare and previously unreleased mixes from the period of the original album releases.

Released in July 1994, Pomme Fritz was the bands 1st album for Island Records getting released their initial two albums for Massive Life. By now something of a ‘household name’ thanks to the accomplishment of 2nd album U.F.Orb, Pomme Fritz, sub-titled The Orb’s Little Album, came as some thing of a shock to fans and critics alike. At 41 minutes it was, in Orb terms, one thing of a sprint and following the practically ‘pop’ sensibility of tracks such as Perpetual Dawn &amp Small Fluffy Clouds the disjointed, dissonance of Pomme Fritz was at odds to what had gone before, yet with hindsight Orb leader Alex Paterson see the album in terms of wiping the slate clean in order to commence again.

1995 saw the release of Orbus Terrarum, an album many Orb officianados see as one thing of a lost classic. The final album to function Kris ‘Thrash’ Weston (who would be replaced with Andy Hughes), it nonetheless baffled a lot of UK critics who were, at the time, in thrall to the prevailing flavour du jour of Britpop, but it proved to be the bands greatest achievement in the U.S. Far more organic and straight-forward than its predecessor only one particular single, Oxbox Lakes was lifted from the album.

two years later in 1996 and the Orb would return with Orbilivion, an album that would see them return to the industrial accomplishment they had accomplished with their first two albums and spawn what was to be their biggest single to date. Now primarily Paterson &amp Hughes, the Orb scored their 1st leading 5 single with Toxygene the very first single to be lifted from the album. Starting life as a rejected remix of the Jean Michel Jarre track Oxygene (turned down as it bore no resemblance to the original) the single reached quantity 4 in January of 1996. The album saw the band re-capture some essential ground as critiques celebrated the long-player as something of a ‘return to form’.

Regardless of the a variety of corporate reshuffles at the Orb’s label, Cydonia, the final album for Island, ultimately emerged in 2001. Recorded in 1999, the album played to the Orb’s strengths. Moments of bass heavy ambience, recalling the heady days of the early 90’s sat alongside ‘pop’ moments such as the 1st single from the album, After More. Soon following its release the band parted organization with the label, following a final ‘greatest hits’ complilation U.F.Off and a legendary show at the Royal Albert Hall.


Basically the brainchild of Alex Paterson, the Orb sprang forth from the punk rock ethos of ‘anything-goes’. Initially functioning with Killing Joke’s Youth and KLF-er Jimmy Cauty and inspired by New York mix-tapes from the likes of Shep Pettibone, the Orb’s initial game plan was to operate outdoors any restrictive notion of genre by utilising anything from dub to punk to abstract electronic bleeps and blips. The mentality, which spawned the Orb, stemmed from having a laugh but being deadly critical about amazing music of whatever strain or period.

With the advent of acid-home in 1988 their ambient workings and DJ sets, which straddled the gaps between the ambience of Eno &amp White Noise, early residence tracks and the wide-screen space of classic dub, saw them much in demand in the capitals nascent club-scene. Delivering back-area entertainment at legendary bashes such as Trancentral and Land of Oz the early incarnation of the Orb soon gained a reputation for anything different in a globe exactly where the four/4 beat ruled supreme.

It wasn’t extended just before their formative concepts produced it to vinyl and early releases such as A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain That Guidelines From The Centre Of The Ultraworld and Little Fluffy Clouds became acclaimed as defining a genre that would be loosely referred to as ‘ambient-house’.

Their debut album, The Orb’s Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld, released in 1991 established them as one particular of the UK’s most innovative and expansive electronic bands a deeply textured album of other-worldly sounds and subtle beats it was broadly hailed as exclusive and very original record.

The following year, 1992, saw the release of arguably their ‘piece de la resistance’ U.F.Orb which saw them actually capture the spirit of the time: rumbling bass heavy moments in dub, dis-jointed snippets of sound, abstract beats and dialogue segments from long-forgotten counter-culture films. It reached number a single upon release, the initial album by a British electronic / dance act to do so and went on to become 1 of the definitive electronic releases of the period.

20-years following acid-home very first exploded it’s simple to overlook how pioneering artists such as the Orb really had been. They took the DIY ethos of punk and fused it with a sense of musical exploration afforded by the explosion of electronic music and created a sound that was special and anything that would spawn a slew of imitators.

Alex would continue to record as the Orb placing out albums that continued to explore beyond the norm and became a a lot in-demand collaborator / remixer functioning with the likes of Primal Scream who all appreciated the pranksters one particular-off, devil-could-care musical skills.
