Orbital Performing Live at The 2012 Paralympics Opening Ceremony (with Stephen Hawking!)

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT. Here it is: One of the greatest electronic music acts of all time grazed the 2012 Paralympics opening ceremony with a performance from their latest album Wonky – and were joined by none other than professor Stephen Hawking on stage (note the fact that he too is wearing the legendary flashlight goggles).

Seriously, what a classic performance. And moment. Best opening ceremony of any olympics I’ve ever seen.

Watch the video where the Hartnolls play the first part of Where is it Going? which then segues into a version of Ian Dury’s Spasticus Autisticus, and then back into the Orbital track.

I just wish I had been there.
