One more crack like that Mitchell and they'll make you turn in your "Here are the Young Men" trench coat and bar you from Manchester for life!

Inspiration from the Most Unlikely Places Dept.

"Love Will Tear Us Apart", Joy Division's tribute to Sinatra. Legend has it that when they recorded the song, Tony Wilson, their label boss, sat down Curtis and made him listen to Frank Sinatra for hours to try and inspire a vocal performance of equal grandeur and tragedy."

Joy Division Bookshelf Dept.

The recollections of former Joy Division member and bassist extraordinaire PETER HOOK--he's practically a lead guitarist--INSIDE JOY DIVISION is due for U.S. publication on January 29, 2013.



"Hooky", known for his straight-shooting and, uh, "direct" manner of expressing himself, should make for a helluva read.

Take a Chance and Step Outside Dept.



Gloomy dance music emerging from the ashes of a gloomy but musically interesting band? No wonder teenage me loved New Order! Particularly those first two (sometimes three) albums.





Okay, okay let's get Low-Life in there, too...



...after all, in those days I did own and proudly wear the damn t-shirt (but not, I repeat, NOT the tattoo!!!)

Do you like a world-wide band called The New World Order run by mysterious men in dark suits?
Their labels are The White House, The Federal Reserve, The Pentagone, Wall Street, Hollywood.

People are always most surprised to learn that I am a dancin' fool!
During the mid to late 80's I frquented the best dance clubs in SF (weekdays only-'
weekends are for amateurs)
NEW ORDER was the best group esp. those fantastic 12 inch single remixes) BIZZARE, LOVE TRIANGLE is my all-time fave)
"Round and Round" was the last single i bought (the album it was on is also quite good)
then i drifted away from the scene

I am amazed they are still around!

Bravo, Broo-TAY! The Fool Part I definitely believe!

Yes, "Technique" from 1989 was the last album of theirs I bought, too.

Speaking of those singles, this was a well-worn (2)CD in my collection once upon a time:



In fact, I always preferred the singles to the album versions. Love the minimalist cover art. New Order's the B-sides were better than most other groups' A-sides!

I enjoy the "Didone" category of font they use for the cover: that used to be trendy during the French Revolution and Napoleon's Empire!

The above album covers refer to Russian and German avant garde movements of the 1910/1920's.

Is that the same font used on Joy Division's album "Closer" and "Love Will Tear us Apart"? (those covers are in the first post in the thread--still Englishman free!)

Joy Division's album "Closer" and "Love Will Tear us Apart" feature a "glyphic" category of font and it looks like the Albertus. Glyphic is based on the Ancient Roman stone letters.
The Albertus was used for THE PRISONER logo in 1967.
