Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark – Tesla Girls (US 12″)

Mike shipped this over the other day and I was thinking there wasn’t much O.M.D on here…shocking! Another fave band back in the day this was off one of my favourite albums by them , Junk Culture.

So these are very different versions to the one I’ve been used to, almost techno with the bass line with different vocals and copious use of the Fairlight for some orchestra samples!! Brian Tench produced with the band just wondered who mixed it as it doesn’t say. I think I’ve just found my new favourite OMD track!

This is quite a helpful article about the track
