The Naked And The Dead

I found this again recently, Orbital's The Naked And The Dead, the B-side to their monumental 1992 Halcyon single. The Naked And The Dead samples Scott Walker doing Jacques Brel and borrows the title of Norman Mailer's 1948 World War II novel. It is just shy of seven minutes of pounding, heady, forward thinking techno.

Adam, I found myself quite enjoying this track. It might sound rather good blasting out from the hi-fi.
