(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.
