Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Architecture & Morality
Used - LP - ARE 37721
1981 Original With 1D/1D Columbia New York Stampers. Glossy, Clean Vinyl Without Original Inner. Jacket VG++, Light Spots Of Wear. “If There Was A Clear High Point For OMD In Terms Of Balancing Relentless Experimentation And Seemingly Unstoppable Mainstream Success In The U.K., Architecture & Morality Is It. Again Combining Everything From Design And Presentation To Even The Title Into An Overall Artistic Effort, This Album Showed That OMD Was Arguably The First Liverpool Band Since The Later Beatles To Make Such A Sweeping, All-Bases-Covered Achievement -- More So Because OMD Owed Nothing To The Fab Four. All It Takes Is A Consideration Of The Three Smash Singles From The Album To See The Group In Full Flower. "Souvenir," Featuring Paul Humphreys In A Quiet But Still Warm And Beautiful Lead Role, Eases In On Haunting Semi-Vocal Sighs Before Settling Into Its Gentle, Sparkling Melody. The Mid-Song Instrumental Break, With Its Shifted Tempos And Further Wordless Calls, Is Especially Inspired. "Joan Of Arc," Meanwhile, Takes The Drama Of "Enola Gay" To New Heights; Again, Wordless Vocals Provide The Intro And Backing, While An Initially Quiet Melody Develops Into A Towering Heartbreaker, With Andy McCluskey And Band In Full Flight. If That Wasn't Enough, The Scenario Was Continued And Made Even More Epic With "Maid Of Orleans," Starting With A Quick-Cut Series Of Melancholic Drones And Shades Before A Punchy, Then Rolling Martial Beat Kicks In, With Malcolm Holmes And Technology In Perfect Combination. With Another Bravura McCluskey Lead And A Mock-Bagpipe Lead That's Easily More Entrancing Than The Real Thing, It's A Wrenching Ballad Like No Other Before It And Little Since. Any Number Of Other High Points Can Be Named, Such As The Opening, "The New Stone Age," With McCluskey's Emotional Fear Palpable Over A Rough Combination Of Nervous Electronic Pulses, Piercing Keyboard Parts, And Slightly Distorted Guitar. "She's Leaving" Achieves Its Own Polished Pop Perfection -- It Would Have Made An Inspired Choice For A Fourth Single If One Had Been Forthcoming -- While The Heartbreaking "Sealand" And "Georgia" Hint At Where OMD Would Go Next, With Dazzle Ships.” Ned Raggett, AMG. more

Junk Culture
Used - LP - V 2310
1984 First Edition UK Limited Release With Single Sided 45rpm 7 Inch. Limited Edition Hype Sticker Folded Over Mouth Of Jacket. Includes Custom Card Stock Inner Sleeve. “In Comparison To The Group's Late-'80s Work, When It Seemed Commercial Success Was All That Mattered, Junk Culture Exhibits All The Best Qualities Of OMD At Their Most Accessible -- Instantly Memorable Melodies And McCluskey's Distinct Singing Voice, Clever But Emotional Lyrics, And Fine Playing All Around. A String Of Winning Singles Didn't Hurt, To Be Sure; Indeed, Opening Number "Tesla Girls" Is Easily The Group's High Point When It Comes To Sheer Sprightly Pop, As Perfect A Tribute To Obvious OMD Inspirational Source Sparks As Any -- Witty Lines About Science And Romance Wedded To A Great Melody (Prefaced By A Brilliant, Hyperactive Intro). "Locomotion" Takes A Slightly Slower But Equally Entertaining Turn, Sneaking In A Bit Of Steel Drum To The Appropriately Chugging Rhythm And Letting The Guest Horn Section Take A Prominent Role, Its Sunny Blasts Offsetting The Deceptively Downcast Lines McCluskey Sings. Meanwhile, "Talking Loud And Clear" Ends The Record On A Reflective Note -- Cooper's Intra-Verse Sax Lines And Mock Harp Snaking Through The Quiet Groove Of The Song. As For The Remainder Of The Album, If There Are Hints Here And There Of The Less-Successful Late-'80s Period, At Other Points The More Adventurous Side Of The Band Steps Up. The Instrumental Title Track Smoothly Blends Reggae Rhythms With The Haunting Mock Choirs Familiar From Earlier Efforts, While The Elegiac, Humphreys-Sung "Never Turn Away" And McCluskey's "Hard Day" Both Make For Lower-Key Highlights.” Ned Raggett, AMG. more

Organisation
Used - LP - DID 6
1980 Original. Appears Unplayed. “If OMD's Debut Album Showed The Band Could Succeed Just As Well On Full-Length Efforts As Singles, Organisation Upped The Ante Even Further, Situating The Band In The Enviable Position Of At Once Being Creative Innovators And Radio-Friendly Pop Giants. That Was Shown As Much By The Astounding Lead Track And Sole Single From The Album, "Enola Gay." Not Merely A Great Showcase For New Member Holmes, Whose Live-Wire Drumming Took The Core Electronic Beat As A Launching Point And Easily Outdid It, "Enola Gay" Is A Flat-Out Pop Classic — Clever, Heartfelt, Thrilling, And Confident, Not To Mention Catchy And Arranged Brilliantly. The Outrageous Use Of The Atomic Bomb Scenario — Especially Striking Given The Era's Nuclear War Fears — Informs The Seemingly Giddy Song With A Cut-To-The-Quick Fear And Melancholy, And The Result Is Captivating. Far From Being A One-Hit Wonder, Though, Organisation Is Packed With A Number Of Gems, Showing The Band's Reach And Ability Continuing To Increase. Holmes Slots Into The Band's Efforts Perfectly, Steering Away From Straightforward Time Structures While Never Losing The Core Dance Drive, Able To Play Both Powerfully And Subtly. Mccluskey's Singing, His Own Brand Of Sweetly Wounded Soul For A Different Age And Approach, Is Simply Wonderful — The Clattering Industrial Paranoia Of "The Misunderstanding" Results In Wrenching Wails, A Moody Cover Of "The More I See You" Results In A Deeper-Voiced Passion. Everything From The Winsome Claustrophobia Of "Vcl Xi" And The Gentle, Cool Flow On "Statues" To The Quirky Boulevardier Swing Of "Motion And Heart" Has A Part To Play. Meanwhile, Album Closer "Stanlow," Inspired By The Power Plant Where Mccluskey's Father Worked, Concluded Things On A Haunting Note, Murky Mechanical Beats And A Slow, Mournful Melody Leading The Beautiful Way.” – Ned Raggett, All Music Guide more
