The Punishment of Luxury is the new album by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD), the pioneering synth-pop group – founded almost 40 years ago by two teenage Kraftwerk fans from the Wirral – whose early albums Architecture and Morality (1981) and Dazzle Ships (1983) would shape the dominant sound of that decade.
Alongside the Human League and Gary Numan, OMD mapped out the musical landscape of the time and helped to mint this new genre with hits such as Enola Gay, Electricity and Souvenir.
