Our new live CD/DVD "Dazzle Ships Live at the Museum of Liverpool" is released today. We are very proud of this release which documents a very special weekend at the Museum of Liverpool last year.

If you had not already ordered your copy, the store will remain open until October 2nd. After that time, we cannot guarantee that the CD/DVD will still be available for purchase, so order now to avoid disappointment.

Also available is a limited edition picture disc of the live Dazzle Ships tracks. Additionally, the live concert film is available in HD as a digital download for those who are unable to play the DVD or who would prefer an HD format.

Live at the Museum of Liverpool: Picture Disc

We’re pleased to announce the anticipated release of a 12" picture disc compiling the live recordings of the Dazzle Ships tracks performed at the Museum of Liverpool. This release follows the competition we ran asking fans to suggest items to add to our PledgeMusic campaign. Those who suggested picture discs have been contacted and have won a free copy.

Due to the expensive nature of manufacturing picture discs to the highest quality, this project will only go ahead if we have 300 pre-orders by August 17th. Any pre-orders above this number will also be manufactured, however the picture disc will never be repressed, so order now if you would like to secure your copy of this beautiful collector’s item. Please note that picture discs take a while to manufacture, so the expected delivery date will be around late November/early December.

Pre-order here.

Museum of Liverpool show

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark are delighted to announce an exclusive one-off show at the Museum of Liverpool.

The special show will take place on Saturday 1 November in the Museum’s 550-capacity Atrium. The set will include greatest hits, tracks from 1983’s Dazzle Ships album and one song which has never ever been performed live.

This is the first time the Museum of Liverpool has hosted a gig by a major music act. On the night OMD will consist of Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys and Martin Cooper. 

OMD’s iconic and influential fourth album Dazzle Ships was inspired by the painting Dazzle Ships in dry dock at Liverpool by Edward Wadsworth. Now that there is once again a Dazzle Ship in a dry dock in front of the Museum of Liverpool, it is appropriate that the band commemorate the event with a concert.

Tickets for the performance will also allow fans to hear the missing parts I, IV, V & VI of OMD’s Dazzle Ships musique concrète composition from 1983. 

As an added bonus, a unique music artefact which is usually on display in the Museum’s Wondrous Place gallery, will be involved in the show. The special reel-to-reel tape recorder known as ‘Winston’ – used by OMD during their very early gigging days – will grace the stage again for the first time in three decades.

More details and information about tickets will be announced shortly at the Liverpool Museum site, www.omd.uk.com and www.facebook.com/omdofficial .

OMD frontman Andy McCluskey said: “We can’t wait to play at the Museum. The space for the concert is fantastic and very intimate. The museums and galleries in this city have had a major influence on me so it’s nice to come back and do a unique concert at the Museum of Liverpool.”

All proceeds from the gig are going back into supporting National Museums Liverpool. 

Janet Dugdale, Director of the Museum of Liverpool, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be hosting a concert by OMD, a major Liverpool group who have gone on to have success around the globe. The Museum of Liverpool tells the story of the city’s rich and fantastic music heritage. To bring that story to life with a concert by OMD should be very special indeed.”
