...and, I forgot to ask, has any of you heard the "Sash-version" of Enola Gay...?? Have to say that it's really good, definately worth hearing...

Maid of Orleans is one of my favourite songs ever, it´s so beautiful and strong, and his voice is wonderful

I totally agree with you, Avil. Maid of Orleans is one of my all time favourites. I loved it from the begin, when I heard it the first time in 1982. Wow, that´s 20 years now! :)
It contains everything: a mysterious intro, a fantastic melody, the strong voice of Andy McCluskey plus the wonderful drums.
It´s a real masterpiece!

Micki: Yes I have heard the Sash Mix of Enola Gay. It actually is pretty good. I wasn´t sure what I should think when I heard that OMD and Sash we´re going to do a new version of the classic Enola gay. But it turned out pretty good. I like the "news rap" with a lot of facts behind the whole story of Enola Gay!

Maid of Orleans is one of OMD´s better tunes. And it´s pretty hard to understand that it has been more than 20 years since I sneeked into my bigbrothers room when he wasn´t home and put on "Architecture and Morality"!!

OMD were fantastic,especially the first four albums:-
OMD
Organisation
Architecture and Morality
and Dazzle Ships

Im afraid i didnt like the Sash version of Enola Gay,it just seemed to cheapen it in my opinion,but thats just my view.

OK so to help you all with the rumours of Paul Humphreys,he is in fact working with Claudia Brucken of Propaganda fame,they are husband and wife and a friend of mine is working on the album also!!
He sent some demos of his own stuff to Paul Hunphreys a while ago and Paul like them and got in touch and my friend is now working with them,if all goes according to plan the album should be out this year,i'll provide more info when i can,at present tho it may be released under Claudia's name.

Yes, please do that! I´m curious how this album will be. A mixture of OMD and Propaganda? Could get interesting! :)
Claudia and Paul did a tour together in the USA last year. I wish I could have been there!

I love OMD, but I agree with Andreas - the last 3 albums were the best. In fact The Universal was AMAZING and I thought it was sad that he stopped doing OMD at a time where he was reaching perfection to do "Atomic Kittens" bleh..

I just LOVED The Universal..
