Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) are an English electronic band formed in Wirral, Merseyside in 1978. Spawned by earlier group The Id, the outfit is composed of co-founders Andy McCluskey (vocals, bass guitar) and Paul Humphreys (keyboards, vocals), along with Martin Cooper (various instruments) and Stuart Kershaw (drums); McCluskey is the only constant member

Although Humphreys left the group in 1989, McCluskey made a comeback in 1991 with the UK top 5 'Sailing On The Seven Seas', and followed that up with a UK top 3 Album 'Sugar Tax' before finally calling it a day in 1996. In 2007 they toured together again featuring the classic line-up of Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys, Malcolm Holmes and Martin Cooper and released a live-album in 2008: 'OMD Live: Architecture & Morality & More'. September 2010 saw the release of History Of Modern featuring the original classic line-up.

Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys make up Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, who were responsible for some of the catchiest and brightest synth pop that the '80s had to offer. s material was a step above other keyboard pop music of the time, thanks to the combination of intelligently crafted hooks and colorful rhythms that bounced and jittered with pristine charm. s best work came from 1985's Crush album, which harbored the midnight airiness found in "So in Love" as well as the adolescent innocence that streamed its way through "Secret," which are two of the best tracks on this set. Even though "If You Leave" was the highlight of Pretty in Pink's soundtrack, its adult feel and smooth transition from stanza to chorus makes it their most memorable song.

Notes

Second reissue, in a plain sleeve with white/orange/black artwork derived from the original cassette release and identical to the 1980 repress.

The plates used to press these records are actually the same ones used to press the 1981 reissue. The difference being that the hand-etched catalogue number has been crossed out and a machine-etched matrix number with the new catalogue has been added to the pressing.

As with the 1981 reissue, the run-out groove on side one also states: "The words were on the ceiling" , perhaps referring to this being a reissue as the run-out grooves on the original had read: "The words are on the ceiling".

Music and lyrics arranged and performed by Humphreys/McCluskey.
Recorded and mixed at "The Gramophone Suite," Liverpool.
