Mini Bio (1)

Andy was a founding member of pop group OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark) in the late 1970s with fellow vocalist Paul Humphreys. A self-titled debut album appeared in January of 1980 followed closely in September by "Organization," which produced the band's first UK top 10 hit "Enola Gay." Many albums followed through the 1980s with "Architeture and Morality" in 1981, "Dazzle Ships" in 1983, "Junk Culture" in 1984, and "Crush" in 1985, which produced the band's first US Top 40 hit "So in Love" -- which began a small American chart run for the group. Following 1986's "The Pacific Age," the Best of album was released in 1988. OMD kept their UK fan base throughout the 90s with albums like 1991's "Sugar Tax," but failed to recapture the major success they had in the 1980s. In 1998, McCluskey pieced together a UK pop female trio called Atomic Kitten, a band which currently is referred to as the new Spice Girls.
