Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark


On this date in 1980, OMD released their self-titled debut album. The album contained the singles, "Electricty" (#99 U.K.), "Messages" (#13 U.K.) and "Red Frame/White Light" (#67 U.K.). The album reached the #27 spot on the U.K. albums chart. The Cheshire, England new wave band was led by Paul Humphreys (ex-Dalek I Love You) and Andy McCluskey. When Humphries left in 1989, McCluskey kept the band going until 1996. They have recently re-formed with the classic line-up.
