What a tune LC1 is. Even now! Probably my favourite Orbital tune & this 12" was the first time I had ever heard Orbital back in the early 90's on me mates CD player!

Belfast is such an amazing tunes that still sounds great to me all these years later

Can someone please remove the Progressive House and EBM tags? Do people not realize how stupid that sounds to someone who lived through it in 1991?

Variety of dance music genres can be found on this 12". Satan, a relatively downtempo track - with a hard edge, benefits by lacking the hardcore Amen drums added to subsequent mixes; always went down a storm at live gigs. LC1, a more house orientated composition with acidic elements, has Fred Dinnage talking about alien abduction (Fred, known Pompey fan & television news anchorman, with a great comb-over hairstyle. Seen on T.V programmes including 'How', 'Magpie' & latterly, Meridian Tonight c2010) . Belfast, essentially a downtempo house track, is a personal favourite - takes me back to the hot summer of 1990 when Kiss F.M tested it's new legal broadcast status with non stop mixes without commercials... bliss

What a great release. Two great tracks on the A side typical quality Techno from Orbital, but flip it over and you get the amazing Belfast. A Beautiful atmospheric downtempo track that has everything. Equally at home within a house set, its was a massive Sasha tune that stayed in his box for a number of years but ideally suited to a chill out set. Perhaps one of their best ever tunes and in my opinion one of the best dance tunes of all time.
