Welcome to my first ever blog
Let me tell you a little bit about the reason why I created this site. Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark have had a huge impact on my life; their music has been playing for as long as I can remember and there is a song for every emotion and every occasion. When I hear some songs, I'm taken right back to when I first heard it. Ah, memories of a happy childhood...
Anyway, as I'm far too young to have seen the band first time around, I decided to collect as many live recordings as possible. Each show is unique and there is always something to listen out for. As my collection started to grow in the late 1990's, I had to collate the shows I owned to avoid buying the same one again (buying was the only way back then!). I looked for something different in each recording to be able to identify it and after years of an ever-growing excel spreadsheet that had expanded to include all gig history, I've come to this!
I hope you enjoy it.
