Yes, completely true! :biggrin:

They're doing the headline set at Big Chill 2009 to mark the 20th anniversary of Chime.

BC still aren't claiming it as an exclusive so hopefully it won't just be a one-off.

If you mean the Glasto 2004 set, it wasn't their last one anyway. I also went to the TitP one after that (which actually had a much better crowd), they also played at the Oxegene festival in Ireland and the Wire festival in Japan before their live John Peel session at Maida Vale.

They never ruled out a comeback - indeed, the press release back at the time said something along the lines of who knows, they might end up having as many comebacks as Status Quo. :D

They always hung on to certain key bits of kit and the Doctor Who sample they used on those sets had the Doctor saying "One day I shall return", so I always clung to the hope that one day it would happen. :)

Chime at Orbital's legendary Glastonbury 1994 set.

The blonde girl in that looks remarkably like someone I used to know who was into Orbital around that time. Thought she'd never been to Glasto though. :?

Gah, The Big Chill? Why?!? Maybe Glade is going to be too small for them now...

I too really hope that this isn't just a one off.

My thoughts exactly.

Full of middle class tossers who just don't get it. Hardly a rave event. Mind you, having Orbital headlining would mean a lot of ravers coming there just for that...
