They will be spinning tracks from their debut album “The Orb’s Adventured Beyond The Ultraworld” all the way through to their latest record “No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds” and everything in between. The purveyors of ambient electronica were a mainstay of the 90’s club  scene, who gained a lot of comparisons to Pink Floyd for their psychedelic imagery and colorful light shows at their gigs.

Originally formed in 1988 By Jimmy Cauty (of The KLF) and Alex Paterson, through a shared love of ambient music and dub, soundscapes and science fiction. As one of the first acts taking on this style they became the pioneers of ambient house genre, resurrecting slower, more soulful rhythms and providing a soundtrack for early-morning ravers once the clubs closed their doors.

The group went on to popularise the genre with their appearance on Top of The Pops in 1992 and have continued with 15 albums up to 2018’s No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds.

The Orb plays Ironworks, Inverness on 7th of June, 2019.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday the 1stof March at he Ironworks box office or

I have been in to music from the age of five with AC/DC being the most influential, so much in fact that I went to Perth Australia in 2016 to see them. I host The Future Starts Here on every Sunday 12 - 2pm playing the best new acts from across Scotland and beyond. I am a bit of a comic book and film geek but don't hold that against me.
