Tesla girls - Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark

'Tesla girls' was the third single to be taken from Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark's 1984 album 'Junk culture'. The accompanying music video was a parody on the style of American music videos who relied heavily on attractive young female models posing in them. Subsequently, the media slammed the music video as being 'sexist'.

The single reached number 22 in both the UK singles chart and the Irish singles chart.

My collection: 7" single no. 2877
Found: House of Rhythm, London, October 28, 1997
Cost: 20p
