Now on tour! Rolling Stones actually reported this in their news section.

Really good synthpop band. I'm not sure they're one of the more notable synthpop omissions, though. I'd like to see GFW's analysis on this one as I know he's more familiar with OMD than me.

OMD were always the weirdos who sold millions of records, but never had an image, never got asked for an autograph in public, never were at the big parties, never did Band Aid or Live Aid, never got played on radio (well, after their songs left the charts). That they leave this earth never having been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is pretty much fitting for them.

Great post, Nermen. I'm especially partial to Dazzle Ships, probably OMD's most experimental and challenging work. It's a synthlover's (I fit that bill like a glove) dream.
