revealing sleevage

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark wasted no time in revealing the cover art for their long awaited longplayer, "History Of Modern". It was designed by longtime friend, Peter Saville, who created the artwork for many of their early sleeves. He is also most noted for having designed nearly all the album and single sleeves for New Order.

Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphries, the driving force behind OMD, are mighty partial to orange. Check out their debut album and you'll see what I mean.

In case you missed it in a previous post, the tracklisting for the elpee goes a little something like this...

1. New Babies: New Toys
2. If You Want It
3. History Of Modern (Part I)
4. History Of Modern (Part II)
5. Sometimes
7. New Holy Ground
8. The Future, The Past, and Forever After
9. Sister Mary Says
10. Pulse
11. The Night
12. Bondage Of Fate
13. The Right Side?


  1. Really looking forward to this now, you have got me back into some great 80s bands and their current materials :)

  2. Orange is the traditional color or passion and that is something Andy and Paul have always had for their music!
