14 ORCHESTRAL MANOEUVRES IN THE DARK, Fiction Factory, London Hammersmith Odeon, Sunday 3 June 1984
Went on Rimes Coaches again! Support Fiction Factory were horrible; gave them a rousing reception of boos from our rear balcony spots, and got a mention from them when we cheered as they announced their last number! OMD were promoting new LP "Junk Culture" but their set consisted of most of their upbeat and radio-friendly synth pop hits, set closer "Enola Gay" providing "a last chance to dance," according to OMD vocalist Andy McCluskey, but encore "Electricity" capping a not brilliant, but nevertheless very entertaining night out.
