History of Orchestral Manoeuvers in the Dark

The founders of the band, McCluskey and Humphreys first met in school in the early 1960s. By their teenage years, they were involved with various groups. While working with Malcolm Holmes on a band called Equinox, the two discovered their interest in the electronic style of music, inspired by Kraftwerk. After a few stints here and there, the two eventually formed a band called The Id, whose lineup included McCluskey’s girlfriend on vocals and Malcolm Holmes on drums. The band performed for a while before parting ways in 1978 due to musical differences.

In 1978, McCluskey and Humphreys came together again and created the band Orchestral Manoeuvers in the Dark, which was renamed from VCL XI. Soon the band began to gig regularly across the country.

Disbandment and Reformation

The band went through a rough patch and eventually ended up splitting around the early nineties. McCluskey was the only one left to carry on the band’s work. In late 1996, even McCluskey retired the OMD name due to a decreasing public interest. He shifted his focus towards songwriting instead for bands such as The Genie Queen and the Atomic Kitten.

On 1st January, 2006, an unexpected request for the band from a German Television show resulted in a reformation. Andy McCluskey soon announced plans to reform the band with a lineup that would consist of the McCluskey, Humphrey, Cooper and Holmes.
