Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark

A welcome reunion of one of the foremost synth-pop groups of all time is this year's official reformation of Liverpudlian duo Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, comprising Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys. With a full-scale tour and a possible new album in the offing, it's certainly terrific news for all diehard aficionados of electronic pop who have been endlessly looping "Souvenir", "Electricity" and "Joan of Arc" on their stereo sets and MP3 players. Check out a revealing interview with McCluskey and Humphreys on the French variety show "Taratata" here, which also incorporates a well-executed rendition of the classic "Enola Gay", performed by the original ensemble for the first time in nearly 20 years.
