Baroque pop (sometimes called baroque rock) is a fusion genre that combines pop music with particular elements of classical music. It emerged in the mid 1960s as artists pursued a majestic, orchestral sound and is identifiable for its appropriation of Baroque compositional styles (contrapuntal melodies and functional harmony patterns) and dramatic or melancholic gestures.

1975–1979: Roots and early years
Founders Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys met at primary school in Meols in the early 1960s, and in the mid-1970s, as teenagers, they were involved in different local groups but shared a distaste for guitar-driven rock with a macho attitude popular among their friends at the time. By 1975 McCluskey had formed Equinox, as bassist and vocalist, alongside schoolmate Malcolm Holmes on drums, while Humphreys was roadie. During that time McCluskey and Humphreys discovered their electronic style, i...
1980–1988: Classic line-up
Rather than hire studio time to record their eponymous debut album (1980), McCluskey and Humphreys used their advance payment from Dindisc to build their own Liverpool recording studio, The Gramophone Suite. They predicted that they would be dropped by the label due to disappointing sales, but would at least own a studio. The album showcased the band's live set at the time, and included some guest drums from Id drummer Malcolm Holmes and saxophone from Wirral musician Martin Cooper. It had a...
1989–1996: McCluskey-led OMD and disbandment
As OMD appeared poised to consolidate their US success, the group continued to fracture. Humphreys departed in 1989 amid personal and creative dissension with McCluskey. Cooper and Holmes then left OMD to join Humphreys in founding a new band called the Listening Pool.McCluskey recalled, "We were all in agreement that something was wrong. How to fix it was where we disagreed." This left only McCluskey to carry on, essentially becoming a solo artist working under the OMD banner. McCluskey's fi...
OMD found commercial success with a style of synth-pop described as "experimental", "minimal" and "edgy". The band often eschewed choruses, replacing them with synthesizer lines, and opted for unconventional lyrical subjects such as industrial processes, micronations and telephone boxes; the BBC said that "OMD were always more intellectual" than "contemporaries like Duran Duran and Eurythmics". Despite the group's experimentation, they employed pop hooks in their music, attaining what AllMusic's Ned Raggett described as "the enviable position of at once being creative innovators and radio-friendly pop giants". They were influenced by electronic artists such as Kraftwerk, Brian Eno and Neu!, as well as more mainstream acts like David Bowie and Roxy Music. OMD drew inspiration from former Factory Records label-mates Joy Division, particularly during the recording of Organisation (1980). The band also recorded two Velvet Undergroundcovers. OMD were indifferent to celebrity status, and...
OMD have been named as pioneers of electronic music, and one of the more important acts of the late 1970s/early 1980s synth-pop movement. AllMusic's Andy Kellman emphasised the band's "inventive albums" and status as "one of the earliest, most commercially successful, and enduring synth pop groups". Hugo Lindgren of the New York Times wrote that OMD cultivated a "legacy as musical innovators", adding, "The genre they helped invent — file under 'synth pop' — proved hugely popular." The A.V. Club's Sean O'Neal said the band helped "lead the charge toward the defining sound of the [1980s]". In particular, "Electricity" (1979) and "If You Leave" (1986) have been identified as two of the most influential records of their era. The group have drawn comparisons to pre-eminent Merseyside act the Beatles, with McCluskey and Humphreys being labelled the "Lennon–McCartneyof synth-pop". OMD often faced hostility from the British music press. Ben Walsh of The Independent said that the band "might...
