- Architecture & Morality & More Live
Eagle Tackles Architecture & Morality & More on CD April 8 and DVD June 3
New York, NY (March 27, 2008)—Architecture & Morality by OMD spawned three Top 5 U.K. singles in 1981 and is generally believed to be the pinnacle of the band’s career. Twenty-six years later, Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys reunited with bandmates Malcolm Holmes and Martin Cooper for an extended tour of Europe, including a stop at the prestigious Hammersmith Apollo in London, England.
Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark Reunited For 2007 Concert Version of Classic 1981 LP
On April 8, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release the CD version of this concert [pre-book date March 19, retail list price $13.98]. On June 3, Eagle will release the show in DVD format. The electrifying evening – as presented on both the DVD and CD – was divided into halves: the entire Architecture & Morality was performed in one half and a set of the band’s most beloved tracks was performed in the other half [total running time 2:15].
OMD started its long road to synthpop greatness in 1978, releasing both its self-titled debut and Organisation follow-up in 1980. After Architecture & Morality, ‘84’s Junk Culture continued their streak and in ’85, they wrote the hit song “If You Leave” for the feature film Pretty In Pink. By ’86, internal problems basically forced a schizophrenic break into two distinct camps and, ultimately, into two distinct bands: The Listening Pool and OMD, which continued with McCluskey, Stuart Kershaw, and Lloyd Massett.
Back together again in 2006, a must-have for the legions of stateside OMD fanatics, the DVD includes a 20-minute band interview, an interview with director Hambi Haralambous and three complete onstage films with audio.
