Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark or OMD were a Liverpoolsynth pop musical ensemble which recorded for Virgin Records. Although there were other fulltime members, Andy McCluskey (bass/keyboards/vocals) and Paul Humphreys (keyboards) were the core of OMD through their most influential and successful period.
OMD was one of the original "synth-duos" and is a classic of the genre. Initially very raw and unrefined, they quickly grew into a lush and well-orchestrated outfit. The first two albums were scattershot, but combined neatly into the U.S. compilation titled OMD highlighted by the songs "Messages", "Enola Gay", and "Electricity."
