About this album

Pomme Fritz is a 1994 EP by The Orb. It was The Orb’s first studio production released on Island Records. Pomme Fritz is a chaotic EP which Rolling Stone described as an “aural feast” despite its “lack of cohesion” and direction. Though Pomme Fritz reached as high as #6 on the UK charts, UK critics panned it as “doodling” and noted its absence of focus. Even Island Records “hated it” and “didn’t understand it at all”, according to Paterson. Kris Weston’s role was much diminished on Pomme Fritz and is credited only as an engineer. Though Pomme Fritz was released as a piece of original work, it consists largely of manipulated samples.

    I love from time to time to wipe my childhood traumas away, as well as most of my personality.

    Very under-rated, I listen to this much more than any other old Orb stuff.

    If music could be a frontal labotomy, this would be it... " All of those childhood trauma's wiped away, as well as most your personality!"

    Probably their strangest release, and that is a very strong statement in itself concerning them.
