I liked both bands at about the time when they were doing decent things. I liked them when I was in HS and at BC; it gave me that distinctive "black turtle-neck" or "elite academic S&M" edge that the chics were digging back then - that "mysterious" air. I remember hearing True Faith and Blue Monday at the NYC clubs in the late-80s/early-90s, and I believe both were used in Bright Lights Big City. (We should probably make a thread that lists all of the movies where NO's or JD's music was used, like Pretty in Pink.) I have the Blue Monday EP that Bill mentions, and another for True Faith, and I should dig that out. My favorite tune is probably Everything's Gone Green. There's a great take of 586 on the Peel Sessions EPs, which were recorded live in the early-80s, and I think I have both of those from Nashua Records in NH. Fine Time is one great dance tune for sure, and I liked Pineapple Face also. Very surprised that you didn't mention that "color codes" on the front cover of PC&L, which is easily one of the great album covers of all time.

Neither band would be too noted for their musicianship; they weren't really good players, but they definitely wrote very clever (and saucy) lyrics.

No, but then by the time of punk rock everyone was pretty well sick and effing tired of masturbatory prog rock-style wankery. lol

"Everything's Gone Green" was a magnificent first step out of that tentative early New Order sound...

No listing for Blue Monday on BLBC on imdb.

SPECIAL from Republic (1993) is one of my absolute New Order favorites, perhaps only beaten by True Faith.

They are working on a new album, by the way!

I never got into Joy Division and I only know the major New Order hits, but I'm familiar with Bernard Sumner because I discovered Electronic through my Pet Shop Boys fanaticism. I really love this track:

The video doesn't play. But Electronic is great, especially the first album. The second one is good too, while the third one is the weakest IMO.

Bah - I tried three different videos of it and I'm still only getting static. Anyway, I was trying to post "Get the Message."

Hooray.

I love New Order.
Republic is a great CD.

I have a Best of Cd too.
I even like that somewhat odd soccer anthem piece they did on the end of that cd.
It is rather gay sounding but I really like it.

I don't suppose Peter Hook will be back with them? (Serious question)

LOL, World In Motion is great. I never thought of it as gay-sounding.

Absolutely not.

They talked about "a series of EPs, or an album" in an interview. Personally, I don't care much for EPs.

Well I love it, but I am not sure I could pull of playing it just anywhere.

The Road to Finding One's Self (Musically Speaking) Dept.

Factus 8--with its glorious "[Peter] Savile Row" sleeve (and painting by Martha Ladly)



Help me, somebody help me
I wonder where I am
I see my future before me
I'll hurt you when I can
It seems like I've been here before

Confusion sprung up from devotion
A halo that covers my eyes
It sprung from this first estrangement
No one have I ever despised
Is this the way that you wanted to pay
Won't you show me, please show me the way
Is this the way that you wanted to pay
Won't you show me, please show me the way. Show me, show me...

~"Everything's Gone Green"
