The Orb to Release Bicycles and Tricycles in August
Did you know InternetDJ's favorite electronic album of all time is by The Orb? The godfathers of ambience will release their album Bicycles & Tricycles in August 2004. Full line-up, quotes and tracklisting are right here.
Long considered the originators of ambient house music and catalysts to the rise of electronic music in the charts, The Orb are now celebrated for a career of deftly free-spirited, good-humored musical creativity.
The Orb's current line-up of Alex Paterson, Simon Phillips (Prayer Box) and John Roome (Witchman), are joined on 'Bicycles & Tricycles' by collaborators Thomas Fehlmann (That Swiss Fella), Jimmy Cauty (Custerd), Fil (Autolump), Jack Dangers (Meat Beat Manifesto), Soom-T and Erik.
"My motivation comes from having the same desire I did when we first started," explains Alex Paterson, The Orb's main protagonist. Bicycles & Tricycles is an entirely modern effort with a pulse on 21st century dance and leftfield music, and a return to the caliber of innovative recording that brought the band critical and commercial acclaim.
