11/02/83 Genetic Engineering
OMD’s first single from the album “Dazzle Ships”
Genetic Engineering was inspired by Andy's interest in the subject. Rather than take a reactionary stance, Andy was more interested in the benefits of genetic engineering, such as the eradication of genetically transmitted diseases.
4-Neu is a tribute to 70's German band Neu! - a band, like Kraftwerk, that were a big influence on Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys prior to OMD.
