Just a small snippet of trivia. The track "I Don't Know You People" samples the 1973 movie "The Legend of Hell House" extensively, especially at the beginning of the track. The vocal and the eerie droning sound are taken from a scene where a psychic medium is possessed by a spirit. The drones were produced by electronic music pioneers Delia Derbyshire and Brian Hodgson, who were heavily involved with the Doctor Who theme that Orbital also covered !
