Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark – One Mad Day Mix (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 28th March 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1991

Side One

Euro-Mixx is a US based label that had formerly released bootleg singles under the name ON-Usound. This 12″ is a nicely done Megamix titled “One Mad Day Mix” of British New Wave group OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark).

Founding members, Andy McCluskey (vocals, bass guitar) and Paul Humphreys (keyboards, vocals), are originally from the Wirral Peninsula, England. The band rose to fame with their fourth single “Enola Gay”, which became a major hit throughout Europe in 1980, and achieved worldwide popularity the following year with their third album Architecture & Morality. Regarded as the band’s seminal work,[1] it spawned three international hit singles and propelled them to superstar status in their home country. OMD, whose music frequently eschewed traditional pop music arrangements in favour of experimentation, were retrospectively described by AllMusic’s Ned Raggett as having been “in the enviable position of at once being creative innovators and radio-friendly pop giants.”

Record sales began to decrease in the UK during the latter half of the 1980s, as did critical support, but the group remained popular. Concurrently, they reached their US peak and had a series of hits, the most notable being 1986’s “If You Leave”, written for the film Pretty in Pink.

On April 16, 2013 the band will release their twelfth studio album “English Electric”, featuring the first single “Metroland” which is out now.

Soft Cell – Low Voltage Mix (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 28th June 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1991

Euro-Mixx is a US based label that had formerly released bootleg singles under the name ON-Usound. This 12″ features a nicely done Megamix of Soft Cell and Marc Almond. Included in the mix are the hits “Say Hello Wave Goodbye”, “Torch”, “A Lover Spurned”, “Tears Run Rings” and the mega hit “Tainted Love” and more.

Soft Cell are an English synthpop duo who came to prominence in the early 1980s. They consist of vocalist Marc Almond and instrumentalist David Ball. The duo is most widely known for their 1981 worldwide hit version of “Tainted Love” and platinum debut Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret. In the UK, they had ten Top 40 hits, including “Bedsitter” (#4), “Say Hello, Wave Goodbye” (#3), “Torch” (#2), and “What!” (#3), and also had four Top 20 albums between 1981 and 1984. The duo split in 1984, but reformed in the early 2000s to tour and released a new album in 2002. Their songs have been covered by various artists including Nine Inch Nails, David Gray, Nouvelle Vague, Marilyn Manson and A-ha. Soft Cell’s track “Memorabilia” earned recognition for the band as pioneers of techno style. The duo have sold 10 million records worldwide.
