OMD (British Live Performance Series)
This 1980 OMD show captures a hungry new-wave electronic band on the rise. Recorded in July 1980 for “Rockstage,” a series of TV showcases hosted by the Nottingham Theatre Royal, the band shared the stage with the likes of new wavers Joe Jackson and Squeeze to metal heavyweights Motorhead.
OMD formed in 1978 by Andy McCluskey (vocals, bass) and Paul Humphreys(keyboards, vocals) and quickly established themselves on the burgeoning electronic music scene. Gary Numan invited them out on an early tour, and they quickly became an acclaimed live act. OMD would release 12 studio albums and sell over 40 million copies worldwide, with artists such as Depeche Mode and Human League citing them as influences.
