Additional information about this, OMD, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark vinyl art.

(OMD) Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark  – The Artist

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (also known as OMD for short) are an English electronic band formed in Wirral, Merseyside in 1978. Spawned by earlier band 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. OMD released their debut single, “Electricity”, in 1979, and gained popularity throughout Europe with the 1980 anti-war song “Enola Gay”. The band achieved broader recognition via their album Architecture & Morality (1981) and its three singles, all of which were international hits. In 1989 creative differences rendered McCluskey the only remaining member of the group but in 2006, OMD reformed with Humphreys back in the fold and began to work on material more akin to their early output. The band re-established themselves as a chart act, and kept on touring extensively. They have sold over 40 million records to date.

Electricity – The Song

‘Electricity’ is the 1979 debut single by English electronic band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD), featured on their eponymous debut album the following year. Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys sing the lead vocals on the track together in unison. Recognised as one of the most influential singles of its era, “Electricity” was integral to the rise of the UK’s synth-pop movement. It has garnered praise from music journalists and other recording artists. The track is a holdover from defunct Wirral group the Id (who were led by McCluskey and Humphreys), and features a melodic synthesizer break as opposed to a sung chorus. Following OMD’s release of “Electricity” on Factory Records, the band were offered a recording contract with Dindisc, who twice re-issued the single.

Electricity Pylon – The Shape

This record is modelled into the an electricity pylon. A transmission tower, also known as an electricity pylon or simply a pylon in British English and as a hydro tower in Canadian English, is a tall structure, usually a steel lattice tower, used to support an overhead power line. In electrical grids, they are generally used to carry high-voltage transmission lines that transport bulk electric power from generating stations to electrical substations before reaching its end consumers; utility poles are used to support lower-voltage subtransmission and distribution lines that transport power from substations to electric customers. They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
