The Orb – Little Fluffy Clouds (1990)

YouTubeAmazoniTunesDiscogs

The Orb is an electronic music group founded in 1988 by Alex Paterson and The KLF’s Jimmy Cauty.  By 1990, Paterson and Cauty had fallen out and the former was now working with old school friend and bassist of Killing Joke, Martin “Youth” Glover. Youth had come across a recording of an interview with Rickie Lee Jones, in which someone asked her: “So what were the skies like when you were young?”. The two of them sampled her answer and mixed with a whistling harmonica from Ennio Morricone, some drums from Harry Nilsson’s Jump into the Fire and some other stuff. This was ‘Little Fluffy Clouds’; this was ambient house.
