The Orb, for years the most fearlessly fascinating sonic marauders on this or any other planet, return in January with a new album marking a long-awaited reunion between eternal mainstay Dr Alex Paterson and lifelong friend and original inter-galactic conspirator Youth.

Orb, which surprised many by steaming straight into the album charts Vaguely Melancholic - Snog - The Last Days Of Rome (CD number one. Although remaining friends, the pair saw each other less often as their careers followed their own trajectories. By this time, Youth was busy on a string of other projects which included building his Butterfly studio and Dragonfly record company, both ambitious projects which later ran aground.
Meanwhile, Alex was dealing with his new chart-rider status, leaving Big Life in to sign with Island Records. He then spent the 90s wilfully steering The Orb into whichever strange waters he felt like taking it, sometimes with dark and twisted consequences.
Two years ago Youth started building another studio at the end of his garden, across Wandsworth Common from the old Coach House: The Dreaming Cave [maybe referencing the transcendental Aboriginal dreamstate which inspired Kate Bush on The Dreaming].
Alex popped round and the pair started hanging out again. Inevitably, this turned into throwing musical ideas around like in the bedroom of the Coach House. Alex and Youth discovered that, although trends and technology have changed immeasurably, the bond between them was still as strong, Vaguely Melancholic - Snog - The Last Days Of Rome (CD, along with the thrill of throwing together disparate elements and drawing from mutual inspirations to forge something startling and, indefinably, The Orb.
Alex describes it as the follow-up to U. The Dream was created without pressure from record companies or the studio.

So what is it with these SNOG guys? This could really upset the apple cart. Are they weird but kinda catchy or what? And Thrussell if it really is Thrussell? This really is too much.
