For their debut album, see Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (album). Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. Co-founders Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys in 2011. Background information. In September 1978, the same month he left Dalek I Love You, McCluskey rejoined Humphreys and their VCL XI project was renamed Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. The name was gleaned from a list of song lyrics and ideas that were written on McCluskey's bedroom wall; the name was chosen so as not to be mistaken for a punk band.

Produced by: Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Richard Manwaring and Mike Howlett. Recorded: In 1980 -1981 at The Gramophone Suite, Liverpool and The Manor Studio, Shipton-on-Cherwell. Label: DinDisc, Virgin. Enola Gay was the only single released from the album. VCLXI was the name of Andy and Paul’s early experimental partnership. The title actually comes from a number on a valve that features on the reverse of the sleeve for Kraftwerk’s album Radioactivity. This version featured on the B-Side of Souvenir. The lyrics in Statues are partially about Ian Curtis, the lead singer of Joy Division who died in May 1980.
