Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

OMD - Electricity

'Electricity' is the debut single of the New Wave and synthpop group Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark.

It is notable for having been recorded numerous times. The earliest versions are live recordings by Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys' previous group The Id.

The song is one of the OMD's most popular and recognisable songs even though it never became a hit.

The three attempts at scoring a hit only achieved the lowly (but significant for the group at the time) number 99 in 1979.

'Electricity' would later appear on OMD's debut album and is regularly featured on OMD compilations.

All incarnations of the 'Electricity' single were backed by the B-side and fellow debut album track 'Almost.'

This song was inspired by The Teardrop Explodes' song 'Camera, Camera' and the Kraftwerk song 'Radioactivity.'
