OMD are a band many forget released their first single ‘Electricity‘ on the iconic label Factory Records. Tony Wilson the supremo saw their potential and recommended them to go get a bigger label deal, which soon followed. The rest is history, a string of Top 40 hits and a band well seeing live. Coincidently later this year they release a new album ‘English Electric‘ which is has a supporting tour too. They’re a band also well known for their great live show, many of which I witnessed over the years, and with Andy McClusky manic dancing it’s an experience to behold. Official Website.
