OMD – Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, namely Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys are reforming and bursting into action. The next two years will see them re-visiting their groundbreaking album “Architecture & Morality”, touring the UK, creating an audio-visual installation with the award winning artist Peter Savile and a joint live venture with The London Philharmonic Orchestra. OMD formed in the late 70’s and became quickly established as one of the UK’s finest left-of-centre groups. Mixing pop with electronic sounds and twisting it with a fine Art sensibility, they created a unique sound and space for themselves in the charts. With art and commerce deftly dealt with, they became massively successful in the 80s all around the world. One of their key releases from that time was their album “Architecture & Morality”. Originally released in 1981, it sold over 3 million copies, spawned the three massive Top Ten Hits “Souvenir”, “Joan Of Arc” and “Maid Of Orleans” (which, incidentally sold 8 million copies between them), and now widely recognized as one of the most influential records in the history of electronic music.
