1983 v. 2013 / 1.0

I'm really glad that a lot of bands who were making good music 30 years ago are still coming up with the goods today, simply because most modern music is rubbish.

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark are a case in point. Here they are standing proudly, flags aloof on the cover of Smash Hits (issue Feb 17th - March 3rd 1983) with an interview inside on the subject of their new album Dazzle Ships and new single Genetic Engineering (ad also inside).

..and as if by some strange coincidence the band have recently given news of their new album English Electric, out in April, with some tasty teasers of what's to come. Ironically enough the new tracks seem to take things up where Dazzle Ships left off, and that's just fine by us.
