Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark - Joan Of Arc

|

On this date in 1981, OMD released their sixth single, "Joan Of Arc". It was backed by "The Romance Of The Telescope". The A side appeared on their third album, Architecture & Morality. The B side was a non-LP track that was added as a bonus track when the album was re-released on CD. The single reached the #5 spot on the U.K. singles 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.
