20120726155622!ElectricLightOrchestranoanswerFor it’s UK release ELO’s first album was simply called ‘Electric Light Orchestra‘. But in the USA it was called ‘No Answer’. This came about because their US label, United Artists, were trying to contact the band’s manager Don Arden (Sharon Osbourne‘s Dad fact fans) to find out what the album was to be called. The US label Executives got through to Mr Arden’s secretary. She tried his line and got nos response and her reply to the US Executives was ‘no answer’. I wonder if there is a similar story around how Kanye West came up with the title for his current opus; ‘Yeezus’? Which is not a great title in my opinion.
