Stegzy's Music Project

A commentary on Stegzy's album collection

Dazzle Ships – Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark [#345]

OMD_Dazzle_Ships_LP_coverAndy McCluskey and company synth their way through their fourth album which is heavily influenced by German synthers Kraftwerk.

Dazzle Ships features a great deal of experimental ideas and was clearly an influence on many later experimental and avant-garde bands such as Godspeed! You Black Emperor and possibly even British Sea Power.

I listened to this album in its entirety for the first time recently, purely for the purpose of the music project.  I was surprised by how, when listened to in one sitting, it is almost conceptual in style. I think it was for this reason alone that the album remains undeleted.

I could tell you my anecdote about wild cocaine fuelled sex parties. Or I could tell you about gay orgies on the Wirral. Or I could even tell you about a night in 2005 and how it relates to this album. But I won’t. Purely because to do so might end up with me in court.

Anyway, OMD. This compilation has all of their hits. Shame that they had to blow all that fame on dodgy girl bands. I mean really…..
