Description

Dazzle Dunes

Dazzle Dunes is a personal tribute to "Dazzle Ships" by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD)... an album that was very experimental and almost a complete departure from their previous albums. When it was released in 1983, it was much hated by my circle of friends who loved their previous work. I just couldn't believe the reaction because I thought it was absolutely BRILLIANT! Three favorite tracks (of the many) are "Genetic Engineering", "Silent Running" and "Time Zones". This album remains one of my top 10 faves of all time. eam

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here's what Wiki says about Dazzle Ships (the album):......

Dazzle Ships is the fourth album by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD), released in 1983. The title and cover art (designed by Peter Saville) alluded to a painting by Vorticist artist Edward Wadsworth based on dazzle camouflage. The painting, Dazzle-ships in Drydock at Liverpool, is in the collection of the National Art Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, Canada.

Dazzle Ships was the follow-up release to the band's hugely successful Architecture & Morality. OMD, then at their peak of popularity, opted for a major departure in sound on the record, shunning any commercial obligation to record "Architecture & Morality number two". The album is noted for its highly experimental content, particularly musique concrète sound collages, utilizing shortwave radio recordings to explore Cold War and Eastern Bloc themes.

In contrast with its predecessor, Dazzle Ships met with a degree of critical and commercial hostility, but has gone on to be retrospectively hailed by critics as a "masterpiece" and a "lost classic" within popular music. The record has also been championed, and cited as an influence, by several modern artists.

Released: 04/03/1983
Produced by: Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark and Rhett Davies
Recorded: In 1982 at The Gramophone Suite Gallery Studio Mayfair Studio
Label: Telegraph (Virgin)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Dazzle in Dazzle Ships explained:...

Dazzle camouflage, also known as razzle dazzle or dazzle painting, was a family of ship camouflage used extensively in World War I and to a lesser extent in World War II. Credited to artist Norman Wilkinson, it consisted of complex patterns of geometric shapes in contrasting colours, interrupting and intersecting each other.

Unlike some other forms of camouflage, dazzle works not by offering concealment but by making it difficult to estimate a target's range, speed and heading. Norman Wilkinson explained in 1919 that dazzle was intended more to mislead the enemy as to the correct position to take up than actually to miss his shot when firing.

Dazzle was adopted by the British Admiralty and the U.S. Navy with little evaluation. Each ship's dazzle pattern was unique to avoid making classes of ships instantly recognizable to the enemy. The result was that a profusion of dazzle schemes was tried, and the evidence for their success was at best mixed. So many factors were involved that it was impossible to determine which were important, and whether any of the colour schemes were effective.
