The Orb perform 'Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld'
Ambient house pioneers The Orb perform their classic Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld on its 25th anniversary, with show at the Limelight 1 on January 27.
Formed in 1988, the now-duo - based around founder Alex Paterson - were, from early on, invariably inspired by Eno & Kraftwerk, bringing trippiness into the early club scene. They garnered a large cult following, theming their songs on sci-fi & drug comedowns.
The group are arguably best known for their 1991 concept double album, The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld, based on a two-hour psychedelic trip through genres & electronics, designed to push the threshold of live stage performance at the time.
Tickets, priced at £17, are available from Shine, Katy's Bar & Ticketmaster. Doors open at 10pm.
