This feature length documentary looks like an essential watch for anyone who has spent more than five minutes in the sonic arms / embrace of The Orb. Though I do wonder if Mr Weston has been interviewed, and I wouldn`t say The Orb “ripped up the rule book” since at the start LX was playing a load of records he`d nicked from Editions E.G. More “opened heads to an alternate musical history and path”. They did however evolve from a squat scene that was taking the same drugs but doing something quite deliberately different and subversive to Rave. I`ll stick with my ”the Sex Pistols in a flotation tank” sound bite.
The premiere is at the Manchester Film Festival on March 5th. You can sort out tickets here.
