OMD - Synonymous with Techno and Electronica in the 80's.

Staying at The Electric Picnic in Ireland tonight and putting up an extended excerpt of a set by 80's Techno/Electronica pioneers OMD, recorded live by RTE FM2 this past Saturday (September 3rd).

I almost forgot just how many hits this band had throughout that decade and just how influential they were. Although by no means the only Techno band at the time, they were certainly one of the more popular and judging by the crowd at this festival, they still very much are.

Here's their set:


Enola Gay, Performing Messages, and Tesla Girl

Admit it, you remember this band really well.

Ah, the 80's.
