OMD's Telegraph & Tesla Girls

The detail behind some of these OMD songs are blisteringly boring, sometimes interesting, mostly 'heh'.

Telegraph was originally scheduled to be the first single from the album Dazzle Ships, but the band weren't happy with the mix and, with pressure from Virgin, opted for Genetic Engineering instead. Telegraph was inspired by the use of morse code and the telegraph during wartime. The morse code that can just be heard in the background of the title song spells out 'Telegraph' [in morse].

Tesla Girls uses a sample of Maureen Humphreys singing "No" recorded into an Emulator. It was also the first time the band had used a Linn Drum. The title Tesla Girls was suggested by Martha Ladly (from Martha & The Muffins), while the song was inspired by Nikola Tesla - a Yugolsavian-born scientist responsible for the Alternating Current, much to the benefit of Thomas Edison.

Fiction Factory

A few weeks back, I was heading over to Mt Roskill from Greenlane. I loaded the 1984 album "Throw The Warped Wheel Out" by Fiction Factory in the car and listened to it over the next day or so. Modern mathematics calculates that I heard the album twice, and it was good enough for me not to skip over ANY of the tracks contained within.

"Feels Like Heaven" is definitely the standout song. There are a couple of other songs on there which were quite nice too, so I've included one of those for you today. Then I find out Im not the only one whoz recently dusted this album off.
