    http://www.discogs.com/artist/54286-Orb-The>>> Long-running UK electronic group, originall>>> y formed by Jimmy Cauty (of The KLF) and Alex Paterson in 1988, that grew out of a love of ambient music and dub, soundscapes and science fiction. Due to the early work in this style, The Orb became pioneers of the early-90's-born "ambient house" genre. The group's lineup has shifted over the years, with Alex being the only consistent member. Noteable members include Thrash and Thomas Fehlmann. Though he was never officially a member, Youth (aka Martin Glover) was instrumental throughout the group's existence, and co-owned the label WAU! Mr. Modo Recordings with Alex (they had known each other since they were young, and Alex was a roadie for the groupKilling Joke, in which Youth played bass.)
