It's a great time to be an Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark fan: forty years on from the group’s formation, four of their classic albums are getting reissues. 1983’s Dazzle Ships is a particular winner, as it veered dramatically away from chart-popping synth-pop and into some real tasty experimental territory: musique concrete and shortwave radio samples and the like. Unpopular at the time, but recognised as an underrated gem since then.
