Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy is joined by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark founder members Andy McCluskey Paul Humphreys for a deep dive into their seminal 1981 album Architecture & Morality. Recorded live at The British Library for a special Classic Album Sundays event, this is a a deep dive into the history, inspirations and legacy of OMD’s third album. Architecture & Morality took the electronic stylings of Kraftwerk and NEU! and combined them with a pop sensibility and punk ethos that still sounds fresh today. In this programme we hear how the band made their own synths and became a huge success despite having no musical training.
