ORBITAL POWER DOWN: After fifteen years, Orbital have decided to call it quits and are going to bow out after the next album, Blue. To mark the end of mission, the band are headlining Glastonbury's second stage for their final gig. "This will definitely be our last ever live show" Paul says on the Loopz website, "although I'm sure Status Quo keep telling themselves the same thing."

Highlights of Blue include a collaboration with Sparks and an attempt to recreate the feel of Walter/Wendy Carlos. The brothers are ending it on good terms: the band are winding up not because of musical differences, but because they feel Orbital has "run its course." Something the Gallaghers might like to mull over.
