- ALL - Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark -



Artist : Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark 

Label : Dindisc 

organisation / LP

Follow up album of OMITD from '81 to their self-titled debut with on it the cult New Wave song "Enola Gay". The whole Lp combine also dark moods, introspective pop songwriting with crude electronic instrumentation influenced by bands like Kraftwerk, Joy Division, Talking Heads or Roxy Music. Essential !

tesla girls / 12"

Taken from their 1984 album "Junk Culture", "Tesla Girls" is about people that use technology and don't know how they work. This is some sort of philosophical idea. So the girl that has a shallow interest in appliances and beauty actually are worshiping the god of technology. Tesla invented the coil that heats air in hairdryers etc.. Great synth-pop by UK legends O.M.D.

secret / 12"

Taken from the "Crush" album from 1985, this "Secret" single is one of the best synth-pop made in the 80's by this 'no need to present' UK band.. ;)

dazzle ships / LP

OMD's 4th album followed a reasonably successful self-titled debut in 1980, then the escalating successes of the same year's "Organisation", and "Architecture & Morality" in 1981, but now the lads felt it was time for some experimentation. Britain and Europe in the early 80's was dominated by Margaret Thatcher and her Cold War politics, and this threatening atmosphere greatly influenced Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys' themes on "Dazzle Ships"; however, despite the album's quirky mix of futuristic sounds and Iron Curtain radio broadcasts evoking almost pre-electricity sentiments, it wasn't all doom and gloom. "Genetic Engineering", "Telegraph", "Radio Waves" and "Of All The Things We've Made" all fall well within the synth-pop field, but tracks such as "Time Zones", "This Is Helena" and "ABC Auto-Industry", with found and mechanised vocals, threw the fans completely, as did the title track's evocation of the nightmare world of submarine dread and sonar-blip tension. A couple of the more balladic tracks, such as the dreamy "Romance Of The Telescope", bear vestiges of the late new romantic era, but ultimately the ballads, the pop numbers, the darker moments, the Eastern Bloc radio programs and the assorted bleeps & mechanical voices all seamlessly combine in one of popular music's finest offerings. Top album !!
