In the Hepburn romanization system, Godzilla's name is rendered as "Gojira", whereas in the Kunrei romanization system it is rendered as "Gozira". In the original film, the fins were added for purely aesthetic purposes, in order to further differentiate Godzilla from any other living or extinct creature. Godzilla is sometimes depicted as green in comics, cartoons and movie posters, but the costumes used in the movies were usually painted charcoal grey with bone-white dorsal fins up until the film Godzilla Godzilla is shown to possess immense physical strength and muscularity.
During that time McCluskey and Humphreys discovered their electronic style influenced by Kraftwerk. The pair shared a love of electronic musicparticularly Brian Eno and Kraftwerk. In September McCluskey and Humphreys put together the seven-piece three singers, two guitarists, bassist, drummer, and keyboard player Wirral group The Idwhose line-up included drummer Malcolm Holmes and McCluskey's girlfriend Julia Kneale on vocals.
The group began to gig regularly in the Merseyside area, performing original material largely written by McCluskey and Humphreys. They had quite a following on the scene, and one of their tracks "Julia's Song" was included on a compilation record of local bands called Street to Street.
This side-project allowed them to pursue their more bizarre electronic experiments, often working with tape collages, home-made kit-built synthesisers, and circuit-bent radios.
In AugustThe Id split due to musical differences. The name was gleaned from a list of song lyrics and ideas that were written on McCluskey's bedroom wall;  the name was chosen so as not to be mistaken for a punk band. Their debut performance was in October at Eric's Club in Liverpool.
The track was supposed to be produced by the Factory Records producer Martin Hannett. However, the A-side was the band's original demo produced by their friend, owner of Winston and soon to be manager, Paul Collister under the pseudonym Chester Valentino taken from a nightclub called Valentino's in the nearby city of Chester.
The single's sleeve was designed by Peter Savillewhose distinctive graphics provided OMD's public image well into the mids. In they were asked to support Gary Numan on his first major British tour.
Humphreys noted, "[Numan] gave us our first big break. He saw us opening for Joy Division and he asked us to go on tour with him Gary was very good to us.
It had a simple, raw, poppy, melodic synth-pop sound. Dindisc arranged for the song " Messages " to be re-recorded produced by Gong bassist Mike Howlett and released as a single right — this gave the band their first hit. It was again produced by Howlett, and had a rather moodier, dark feel.
The album spawned the hit single " Enola Gay ", named after the plane that dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima. The song was intended to be included on the debut album, but was left out at the final selection. The tour for this album had a 4-piece band line-up, with saxophonist Martin Cooper another Dalek I Love You alumnus recruited for keyboard duties.
It ushered in a lush choral electronic sound.
The group went into the studio with Richard Mainwaring producing. Cooper then temporarily dropped out and was replaced by Mike Douglas, but this change was reversed by the time the album was released and a tour embarked upon.
The album's sound saw OMD's original synth-pop sound augmented by the Mellotronan instrument previously associated with prog rock bands. They used it to add very atmospheric swatches of string, choir and other sounds to their palette. Two more hit singles "Joan of Arc" and " Maid of Orleans " which became the biggest-selling single of in Germany  were taken from the album.
Its relative commercial failure caused a crisis of confidence for Humphreys and McCluskey and brought about a deliberate move towards the mainstream. The album was a success, reassuring the group about their new direction.
The " Locomotion " single returned the group to the top five in the UK and was a good indicator of the group's new found sound, notably the adoption of a classic verse—chorus formwhich is something the group had often previously avoided.
Inthe band expanded to a sextet, featuring new band members Graham Weir guitar, keyboards, trombone and Neil Weir trumpet, bass guitarand released Crushproduced by Stephen Hague in Paris and New York.
Later in the band was asked to write a song for the John Hughes film Pretty in Pink. They selected "Goddess of Love. The same six piece line-up also released The Pacific Age inbut the band began to see their critical and public popularity wane in the UK while they failed to capitalise upon their breakthrough in the US market.
However, it was at this point when OMD broke in two. Graham and Neil Weir left at the end of the US tour and co-founder Paul Humphreys subsequently called it a day, unhappy with the band's commercial orientation.
This left only McCluskey to carry on, essentially becoming a solo artist working under the OMD banner. The fifth track from Liberator" Dream of Me ", was built around a sample from " Love's Theme " by Love Unlimited Orchestraa track which was written and produced by Barry White.
Paul Humphreys, while no longer part of the group, co-wrote the single " Everyday ". Also inMcCluskey made contributions to the Esperanto album, a project by former Kraftwerk member Karl Bartos then working under the moniker of Elektric Music. McCluskey returned with a rotating cast of musicians for the album Universalwhich featured two songs co-written by Humphreys as well as a holdover from the Esperanto sessions, co-penned by Bartos.
Disbandment [ edit ] Though both Liberator and Universal produced minor hits, McCluskey retired the OMD name in latedue to waning public interest.
