The Orb: Brixton Academy, London
Caroline Sullivan, The Guardian, 20 April 1993
PIONEERS OF neo-progressive pop or appalling hippy throwbacks? That both descriptions apply to the Orb indicates the scale of the changes occurring in rock music. A few years ago, a "concert" comprised of geometrically precise electronic ululations and a hallucinatory light show would have drawn two ravers and a dog. Now, veterans of a No 1 album, UFOrb, the Orb sell places out.
