OMD - If you leave

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) 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. Although retrospectively acclaimed, the experimental Dazzle Ships (1983) eroded European support. The band embraced a more straightforward pop sound on Junk Culture (1984), while continuing to experiment via newly acquired digital samplers; this change in direction led to greater success in the United States, and yielded the 1986 hit, "If You Leave". A year after the release of The Best of OMD (1988), creative differences rendered McCluskey the only remaining member of the group as Humphreys formed spin-off band The Listening Pool. OMD would return with a new line-up and explore the dance-pop genre: Sugar Tax (1991) and its initial singles were sizeable hits. By the mid 1990s, however, electronic music had been supplanted by alternative rock, and both OMD and The Listening Pool disbanded in 1996. McCluskey later conceived pop girl group Atomic Kitten, for whom he served as a principal songwriter, while Humphreys performed as half of the duo Onetwo. 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.

Από αυτό το δίσκο, γύρισαν video clip το κομμάτι "Κοιτάζοντας Πίσω" το οποίο μεταδόθηκε από το MTV. Το γεγονός αυτό άνοιξε τους ορίζοντες του γκρουπ, και έτσι βρέθηκαν το '90 στη Γερμανία, όπου έδωσαν κάποια live σε δίαφορα club με το όνομα "Timedrops". 'Επειτα από έξι μήνες στη Γερμανία άλλαξαν κιθαρίστα, και στη θέση του Μπαρμπαγάλα ήρθε ο Γερμανός George Becker.

Το '94 επανακυκλοφόρησαν από τη "WEA" το "Μυστικοί Κήποι" με προσθήκες δύο ακυκλοφόρητων κομματιών και τριών live. Το ίδιο διάστημα αποχωρούν από την μπάντα οι δύο Γερμανοι μουσικοί και έρχονται στη θέση τους οι Κώστας Καστάνης κιθάρα και ο Γιάννης Βεναρδής τύμπανα (ex "Αδιέξοδο", "Γενιά Του Χάους"). Με αυτή τη σύνθεση ανοίγουν τη συναυλία των "Μetallica" και "Cult" στην Αθήνα. Το '96 κυκλοφόρησε το "Λευκή Συμφωνία ΙV - Χρώματα" από τη "FM Records".
