Wil Malone is not just a name spoken in hushed tones among prog/psych collectors, although his work in The Orange Bicycle & Motherlight is of great interest, but he is also one of the legendary 'behind-the-scenes' arrangers, with a portfolio of work for Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Todd Rundgren, Depeche Mode & nearly Madonna! Wil Malone also scored major hipster points in the nineties for arranging the strings on the classic 'Unfinished Sympathy' by Massive Attack. This lead to further work fleshing out the familiar string part on The Verve's 'Bittersweet Symphony' & also 'Lonely Soul' with Richard Ashcroft & UNKLE's James Lavelle & DJ Shadow.
