OMD interviews with Seattle Gay News
Holy, alligator shirts! The 80s are back.
One of that decade's biggest hitsmakers, OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark) is featured this week in the Seattle Gay News. The band, who rose to fame by penning the song "If You Leave" for the teen classic Pretty in Pink, has reunited for both an album (History of Modern) and tour with its original lineup - Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys, Malcolm Holmes, Martin Cooper.
Humphreys spoke to Seattle Gay News by phone shortly before the start of OMD's tour outing, sharing details about the tour and about writing that nostalgic hit single.
