Orbital R.I.P. article

The Telegraph ran an article on Orbital in their arts supplement on Saturday which could easily have doubled as an obit.

Lamenting the death of not only one of the 90s dancescene staples, but also the scene they came from, the article takes greats pains to highlight the bands career high - 1993's Brown Album - and outline when things took a turn for the worse. "Their 2001 album The Altogether was a directionless mess."

The parallels of the band's demise and the demise of the 90s music scene were easily summed up thusly, "It was time to wake up and recognise that there was no longer a dance scene, just niche markets and a leisure industry."

Orbital, just for the Blue Album we'll miss ya loads.
