On and Off?

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark - Annex

This reminds me a bit of 'On' by Aphex, well the intro does anyway. OMD don't have the King-Kong bassdrums that teeter on the brink of sucking you off. Atomic Kitten did have though, I suppose Andy McClusky (Svengali? perhaps) must have seen the light by that time and hit 'loudness' on his amp. No not Andy from McLusky, they have always had 'loudness' ON. See what I did there? Jarvis Cocker directed the video for 'On' which isn't that good but it does have a certain charm to it. He also directed 'Aftermath' for Nightmares On Wax which is all monster heads and feather dusters, a bit like an evening down the pub with Spoilt Victorian Dad.
