OMD live at Museum of Liverpool 1 Nov 2014 playing Dazzle Ships

OMD has announced a very special one-off show at the Museum of Liverpool on Saturday 1 November which will feature the album Dazzle Ships (plus the hits and more) and the long-awaited return of Winston, their reel-to-reel tape recorder. On the night OMD will consist of Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys and Martin Cooper.

OMD's iconic and influential fourth album Dazzle Ships was inspired by the painting Dazzle Ships in dry dock at Liverpool by Edward Wadsworth. Now that there is once again a Dazzle Ship in a dry dock in front of the Museum of Liverpool, it is appropriate that the band commemorate the event with a concert. Tickets for the performance will also allow fans to hear the missing Dazzle Ships parts I, IV, V & VI from 1983.

More details and information about tickets will be announced shortly at Liverpool Museums, OMD Official [->] and Facebook.

Biting Tongues

In the grey days of late 1970s post-punk Manchester, youth culture was a serious affair: every musical performance was measured mostly by the conviction of its delivery. The term 'New Wave' opened up free vistas where acquired skills could once again be exercised after punk's monochrome blur. It could be applied to anything from a James 'Blood' Ulmer record to the latest Throbbing Gristle release, Magazine to Swell Maps. Move outside that terrain into Sun Ra, Parliament, Frank Sinatra and Martin Denny, and your options were suddenly without limit...

Then came Tony Wilson's Factory Club (at the Russell Club in Hulme) offering an open invitation to experiment that was taken up when Ken Hollings, Howard Walmsley, Eddie Sherwood and a few others decided to make some noise to accompany their 16mm silent epic Biting Tongues. A further performance followed a few weeks later, when Colin Seddon and Graham Massey disbanded their Post Natals project and joined up. The film itself, a flashing series of negative images, became a memory; the name remained.
