1983 saw the OMD lose commercial momentum somewhat,
with the release of their more experimental Dazzle Ships album, which mixed melancholy synth ballads and uptempo synthpop with musique concrete and short wave radio tape collages.
It was recorded by the 4-piece Humphreys/Holmes/Cooper/McCluskey line-up, and produced by Rhett Davies.
"Genetic Engineering" is the first single released from Dazzle Ships.
