Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) was formed in Liverpool, England and recorded, this, their first full-length LP in 1980. Formed in 1978, OMD's co-founders are Paul Humphreys (synthesizers) and Andy McCluskey (vocals and bass). Their first gig in 1978 was at the legendary Liverpool club, Eric's, which was a breeding ground for many famous punk and new wave bands. Influenced by both the German band Kraftwerk and a leap in the technology of electronic music machines, OMD became one of the leaders in early Electronic Music and Synth-Pop. Musicians that have cited OMD as a great influence over their own music include James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem and MGMT. The album art was created by artist and designer, Ben Kelly and graphic designer, Peter Saville, both men famous for designing much of the record sleeves for Factory Records. Increasingly scarce as new wavers and punk rockers hit the AARP years. (Discogs).
