Not posted OMD for a while on here so here is a classic from Feb 1983. Risk taking as always, I was a bit shock when this came out! What was this nursery rhyme selection of noises? Why did they end it by taking each instrument out ? I’ve grown a bit to like it but still find it repetitive and impossible to dance to 🙂
Weird selection of instruments; Typewriter, Toy Piano, Ukulele. Texas Instruments “Speak And Spell” even gets a sample credit on the sleeve!
“4-Neu” is a typical atmospheric track, piano + atmospherics + repeated/sparse lyrics = Classic OMD B-side. This time a homage to German legends NEU! in particular their song ‘Sealand’ off ‘ Neu! ’75 with a touch of their own track “Stanlow” in there.
