Orchestral Manoeuvres in The Dark was the unlikely band name chosen by two teenage school friends Liverpool for what was supposed to be a one night only show. As the band name got shorter, OMD became more and more successful having hits all over the world with songs like Electricity, Enola Gay, Souvenir, Joan of Arc Locomotion and If you Leave. Not only did the band sell millions of records but their music was part of a great new wave of synthesizer music that is now considered to be one of the last great iconic musical movements. A style that is recognized as hugely influential on many of the most successful modern artists like The Killers, the XX, LCD Sound System, and Glasvegas. OMD reformed in 2007 including original side men Martin Cooper and Malcom Holmes, and have consistently toured to great critical and audience acclaim. The release in 2010 of their History of Modern album saw the band being applauded for recapturing their old sound and energy whilst updating it with modern production values."
