PSB & OMD

#1 Post by telys »

There's a slowly progressing discussion in the off topic section about OMD and I wonder if any of you know about any connection between PSB and OMD? And I mean by persons not the fact they are british pop duos which emerged in the 80's and still are active.

Funny isn't it? You'd think the two groups would be a no-brainer combo but to be honest I've never heard them spoken of or seen them together at the same time.

I remember an edition of Sounds of the 80s with Sara Cox in which Andy and Paul were listening to and talking about tracks from Please.

OMD formed in 78, first record 1979.

But yeah visually PSB had more of the geeky uncool frontman and his silent sidekick shtick of OMD or Blancmange than pervy pop duos like Soft Cell

I believe their first record was released in February 1980, sorry first album. First single came out in May '79. But they definately emerged properly in the 80's

Andy is a better dancer than Neil…

Yea sorry. Comparing dance moves isn’t really on topic -but my goodness he moved like a bullet around that stage!
I’m convinced there’s been a connection OMD/PSB somewhere along the line. Would love to know!

In 1993 PSB had a song called Liberation
In 1993 OMD had an album called Liberator

Coincidence or design?

OMD recorded in spring of '85, when did the PSB sessions with Hague start? West End girls was released in october '85.
Spring of '85 PSB were recording with Jeczalik, Froome, Ron Dean Miller, Phil Harding.
