Andy Hughes RIP

Sad to hear the news today of the death of Andy Hughes of The Orb.

He was only 43.

I grew up listening to The Orb, from Little Fluffy Clouds, through the glorious Live 93 album (which I listened to over and over until one of the tapes broke and I had to get it on CD!) to albums UF.Orb and Orblivion. Not always pioneers of electronic music, the band certainly made the genre their own and defined a distinctive sound.

After The Orb, Andy continued working as a producer and working with new bands such as Basement Jaxx.

RIP Andy.
