Christmas message from Andy & Paul

We want to take this opportunity to send everyone our best wishes for the holiday season and New Year. 2013 has been a year of extremes. The wonderful reception given to EE and the tour and the terrible event in Toronto that almost took Malcolm from us. We have consciously chosen not to make any definite plans for more albums and tours until we know what the future holds for Mal. We all needed to reassess our choices in the light of what happened on July 19th. We thank all who have supported us through the record and concerts and we send our apologies to those who were disappointed by the cancellations.

Thank you.

Andy & Paul

She’s Got Claws – Christmas

Our friend Micci from She’s Got Claws has created a beautiful festive song called "Can We Hope For Christmas?".

She is donating money generated by sales and downloads to Save the Children to help some of the estimated 1.6 million children who live in poverty in the UK. Please support Micci in this great cause and brighten up your Yuletide with a great song.

Christmas Message from Andy

We would like to take this opportunity to wish everybody a wonderful, happy and peaceful Christmas. We’re looking forward to releasing English Electric and seeing as many people as we can at lots of concerts – there will be announcements of more shows in the New Year.

We think 2013 will be a very exciting year for OMD – we hope you’re as excited about it as us!


Karl Bartos| Off The Record | New Album | 15.3.2013


Karl Bartos | Off The Record
Karl Bartos’ new album “OFF THE RECORD”, consisting of 12 brand new tracks will be released worldwide on March 15th, 2013 on Hamburg based label Bureau B.


See KarlBartos.Com for details.


I’m a big Bartos fan. He seems to have carried on in the grand Kraftwerk tradition, whereas Kraftwerk themselves have wandered off in a different direction.
I really liked his last album (Communication), there were some classic tracks on there (“The Message” springs to mind), although there was some drivel as well (what was that about returning some video tapes all about?).

Indeed, Communication was one of my influences around about the time of my second album “Evolution“..

Anyway – You’ve been told, and you have plenty of time to save your pennies up. Although why it couldn’t have been out in time for Christmas, I don’t know.. (Perhaps there’s a big TOUR coming up as well?)

Happy New Year!

Finally, all the turkey has been eaten, the christmas deccies are boxed up in the loft, and it’s time to get on with 2012!
NerveJam.Com is looking forward to another year of quality electronic music from the likes of John Foxx and the Maths, Gary Numan, Blancmange, OMD and the like.
Sadly, we’ll have to do without ROBOCAST Radio this year. 🙁

And I promise to get my finger out and release some new NerveJam material this year, as well as digital releases of some seleted older material. Honest.

Check out the new NerveJam Fanbridge updates as well (sign up on the NerveJam.Com homepage). If Fanbridge is good enough for Blancmange, it’s good enough for NerveJam!

All the best for 2012


Christmas Greetings from OMD

We want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a wonderful holiday period and New Year.
2011 has been an amazing year for OMD. We could hardly have expected to do two North American tours.
Hopefully we can soon play in other countries that we have not yet visited since the band reformed.
2012 will see us playing just a few concerts but primarily writing and completing a new album.
With best wishes… Andy and Paul.
