AN OMD fan has turned some of her memorabilia into clothing to raise funds for the band's crew who have lost livelihoods during the pandemic.

Anja Minnemann sewed beanie hats out of her OMD shirts as well as cushions, Christmas socks and even a bandana for a dog.

Her efforts have so far raised a total of £1,000 and counting.

The news came as Wirral's electronic pioneers prepare for their uniquely special You, Me & OMD live show from London's Indigo. It was supposed to take place at The O2 in October, but has been rescheduled to March 27 next year.

It will raise money and awareness for their crew.

Featuring songs from their iconic album Architecture & Morality, plus a wealth of hits from their legendary back catalogue it will be Live-streamed and with a Zoom-integrated audience of 1,000, as well as a chance to be in the limited 200 capacity audience, the show will start at 9pm (UK time) on the night.

All profits will be divided between the band's dedicated and loyal crew that work on their live show and have been struggled both mentally and financially from the impact of no touring due to the pan and uncertainty of their futures.

It will be a busy year for the band's co-founders Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys, who will also also embark on a major tour and recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of their anti-war hit single, Enola Gay.

A spokesperson for the event said: "It has been an opportunity for the band's co-founders Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys to show their appreciation and give back to their team, granting them a sense of purpose and dignity with something special to work on.

"Live crew are often overlooked and only acknowledged when things go wrong, so You Me & OMD is also a chance to shine a light on the crucial work that they do."

Meols-born Andy McCluskey said: "As a result of the pandemic, and seeing the plight of technical crew and suppliers in the music industry, we have decided to put our money where our mouths are.

"We want to raise money for the crew members who have been with us now for many years.

"All profit will be divided between our essential but unseen stars of OMD’s live performances."

Mirelle Davis, the band’s manager, who has helped spearhead the event, added: "It feels good after the endless and soul-destroying months of cancelling shows to be doing something positive and actually creating a live show.

"This is a project very close to my heart, and whilst I appreciate not all bands are in the same financial position, it would be great to see others following our lead."
