Vintage Computer Festival recruits OMD for synthpop loveliness

Retro pop fit for retro-thon

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark: remember them? We do and so will many geek nostalgia buffs of a certain age who can see the synth-pop duo talk and play - they're called OMD now - at the UK's first Vintage Computer Festival.

VCF runs on June 19 and 20 at the National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park, near Milton Keynes.

The line up includes Sophie Wilson - co designer of the BBC Micro and displays from vintage brands such as Acorn World and Amiga user groups.

Entry is free to museum members and others must buy an annual Bletchley Park season ticket for the princely sum of £8.50. Entry on the day is £10.

Tickets to see OMD front men Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys for their Saturday evening performance at Bletchley Park Mansion are already sold out - maybe they could play the Sunday too.

"We are delighted to be playing at Bletchley Park and celebrating British computer history at The National Museum of Computing," says McCluskey. "We all have our 'geek' side."

How sweet.
