Video: "Orbital sample Stephen Hawking"
I don't know where to begin. Underworld's music for the Olympic opening ceremony had me teary-eyed and gobsmacked. It led to a gushy post a month ago in which all I could write about was toast.
And now Orbital at the Paralympic opening ceremony. With Stephen Hawking. Wearing Orbital glasses.
Truly speechless. Between the two ceremonies, 38 million viewers got to see my favourite bands. And that's not counting the many millions more beyond our borders.
Apparently some sport is happening too.
My gob is thoroughly smacked..
Further Fats: My review of Wonky, which includes Where Is It Going, used in the above clip.
