electro stigmata

The promotional campaign for "History Of Modern" continues unabated with the release of second single, "Sister Marie Says". Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark have lensed a typically meaningful video with the requisite religious imagery associated with the song.

It appears Andy and Paul opted out of appearing in this one. Surely, they could have shot a simple performance in a schoolyard and cut it into various parts of the vid. Admittedly, I am a child of the original age of music video. Pardon me, if I'm a bit of a purist. Forgive me, if I go astray.

  1. A much better clip than the last one. I don't necessarily mind the lack on the band in the clip. The idea of promoting a song without showing the 50+ performers might be some young PR flack's idea of getting a song in the charts, though. All I'm saying. But the teen pregnancy/catfight angle is miles away from the real, far more fascinating "Sister Marie Gabriel" story as elaborated on here:

    "I don't know exactly what I'd do - if anything she said came to be true" indeed!
