& Paul Humphreys
Since its early days, OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark) did clearly put his own stamp on new wave music. On a regular basis this band equally ranked at the top in the 80’s charts. After their hugely well acclaimed LP Organisation which featured Enola Gay, this Liverpool based band was at the top of the charts for several weeks in 1981 with Joan Of Arc (Maid Of Orleans). Subsequently they had one hit after another, but in the mid-90s this British hit machine had a break. However in 2007 the original members reunited and possibly more than in its heydays O.M.D. showed the world they are truly one of the pioneers of synth pop. OMD’s recent albums History Of Modern and English Electric showed that, after a career of nearly 40 years, this band is still as relevant to music as they used to be at the time when they released their debut single Electricity on the famous Factory label in 1978.
