OMD Goes Hollywood... Again

For those like me who aren't within even 800 miles of a tour stop by the reunited Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, you'll find this video pretty special. Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys stopped by Amoeba Music in Hollywood on Thursday for an in-store performance before their Los Angeles concert tonight. Thankfully, the legendary record store recorded and posted the show. As Andy put it, the appearance is a seven-song history of the band. In case you want to skip around (but you shouldn't), here is the setlist. It's perfect. The headline above refers to Andy's reminder before performing OMD's biggest U.S. hit that they once went Hollywood, and it made them lots of money.

1. Electricity
2. History of Modern (Part 1)
3. If You Leave
4. Souvenir
5. Joan of Arc
6. Sister Marie Says
7. Enola Gay
