Info from Patrick 

I want to introduce you to band that some people have compared to Joy Division & New Order. They are called SERIAL P.O.P.. They are based in London, and signed to my indie record label, Good Science Recordings. The URL is: www.serialpop.com

‘Like New Order, Blur, Devo and Captain Beefheart swapping ideas and insults over a lethal cocktail of alcoholic beverages." – Radio One.

" If Kraftwerk did guitars. At times veering towards Leftfield, at times more Joy Division, this is greyfiltered indie, excellently played, but more bleak on the inside that you first expect." - DrownedInSound.Com

Review from dotmusic.com 

New Order chose a succinctly foretelling name in the aftermath of Ian Curtis's suicide. It speaks of a group intent on putting their glorious but infernally doomed past behind them. A group who would engineer a pioneering musical vision and, interestingly, write the first decent football song.

'Retro' - in theory - bids to reflect the resurrection of a group of gloomy, post-punk torch-bearers, who became a revolutionary pop group and ultimately infiltrated and shaped modern music in a more consuming fashion than even Joy Division could consider. However, these four CDs ask more questions than they answer. Like, what is the point of a box set, could New Order really be so contrary in compiling their imperious legacy and where the f*ck is 'Thieves Like Us'?

Both the 'Fan' and 'Pop' collections bring together some of the finest British music of the last 20 years, as New Order brought club culture smashing into the soul-infused, enthrallingly lucid but 'traditional' sensibilities already honed by Sumner, Hook and Morris. Here is a sound that began in the jagged but propulsive shadow of what had passed before, and, impressively swiftly, grew sleek electronic wings and an aloof, enigmatic sense of identity, emotion and sophistication.

'Fan' is the most intriguing compilation. You get the opening track from New Order's first album 'Movement' - the Peter Hook intoned 'Dreams Never End' - alongside a collection of dark, atmospheric beams of light, spanning primarily their most compelling period - 'Movement', 'Power, Corruption and Lies', 'Low-Life', 'Brotherhood' and 'Substance'. Particular mention should be made to the eerie, Gothic downpour of 'Elegia', the bass lizard sliding across 'Lonesome Tonight' and the almost holy 'Your Silent Face', which is Kraftwerk rolling to infinity alongside Sumner's maddening grasp of two-fingered melancholia. These recordings capture New Order in transition, a band unlike any before, whose avant sensibilities would soon become ever more user-friendly.

'Pop', understandably, throws some sublime, everlasting New Order chart action - 'Regret', 'True Faith', 'Crystal', 'Bizarre Love Triangle' - into an accessible, if formulaic mix. It includes 'Ceremony', the first ever release, sung in a low, sub-Curtis drone, with Sumner filling in uncertain lyrical gaps left by his tragic brother, and 'Slow Jam' from 2001's comeback guitar tour-de-force 'Get Ready'. Elsewhere, there are a couple of tracks from New Order's Valhalla - the 'Blood On The Tracks' Ecstasy electro-pop of 'Technique' - in the painfully obvious shape of 'Fine Time' and 'Round And Round'. There is no 'Vanishing Point' or 'Run', let alone 'Run 2', which was released in very small quantities. Wherein lies the problem - if there could possibly be one - with 'Retro'.

A limited edition fifth CD contains a few nuggets - the colossal 18-minute version of 'Elegia' - and does redress the balance somewhat. But you'd have to be a psychopath to listen to all 13 tracks on 'Club', despite the - rather odd - presence of a shimmering 'Everything's Gone Green' and the towering 'Touched By The Had Of God'. The 'Live' collection fares better, as it charts a fast-evolving New Order emerging from the Joy Division cocoon and into a truly spectacular and colourful beast, but this is ultimately an opportunity blown, in fine, who gives a f*ck New Order style.

There is not enough unreleased material for an obsessive fan and, for the uninitiated, too much unenlightening bluff on 'Retro' for it to serve its purpose. Which, presumably, was to chronicle one of the most remarkable chapters in music history.

From dotmusic.com

New Order have been at the forefront of pop music for 20 years, and the close of 2002 signals a frantic period in their peerless career, with the release of a box-set and live DVD.

'Retro' is a four-CD compilation, spanning the band's entire career, which was spawned by the death of Ian Curtis in 1980 and reached another high-water mark with the release of last year's acclaimed comeback album 'Get Ready'.

The collection has been chosen by four 'taste-makers' - journalists Miranda Sawyer and John McReady, Hacienda and M People icon Mike Pickering and Primal Scream legend Bobby Gillespie - and is split into four genres - 'Pop', 'Fan', 'Retro' and 'Live'.

Live document '511' meanwhile, is a broadcast of one of the band's shows last summer in London's Finsbury Park, comprising five Joy Division tracks and 11 New Order songs, hence the title. The film also includes backstage footage and documentary footage.

dotmusic has two copies of 'Retro' and two copies of '511' to giveaway, before next week's official release date.

To win, CLICK HERE and tell us the name of New Order's first single, following the death of Ian Curtis.

Info from Shades

NEW ORDER was on channel four last night, a television programme "the ultimate chart: the uk's best selling singles"
Basically Blue Monday is the 76th best selling single in the UK in the past 50 years (sales: 1,001,400). It was nettling in between the Osmonds ""long haired lover from liverpool" (No77) and "eye level" the Simon park orchestra (75).

The interview took place with Morris, Hook and Sumner in a recording studio where work appeared to be in progress.

Morris , Hook and Sumner were interviewed about Blue Monday and some of the other songs on the list.
I have to say they really were on good form and were cracking jokes and telling stories.


Hooky and Bernard S. having a go at Morris for wiping all the drums off the version they programmed first because his foot got stuck on the mains lead and pulled it out!

There was also a few seconds of studio footage showing them playing Blue Monday.

Sumner said they recorded it because people were complaining for not doing encores, so NEW ORDER wanted to program an entire track then come on stage as if to do on an encore press a button and fuck off again!

Oh by the way "Candle in the wind" by the fantastic Elton John was No1.

New Order Goes 'Retro' For Box Set

In the nick of time for the holiday season, iconic British synth-pop act New Order will next month release "Retro," a four-disc survey of its career, to be followed in January by "International," a single-disc collection of hits. The box is scheduled for a Dec. 17 release, while the hits set is due Jan. 28; both will be issued via Warner Bros.

Assembled as a museum tour through New Order's history, each of the discs that make up "Retro" was "curated" by a different person. Journalists Miranda Sawyer and John McCready assembled the first two discs, respectively, while Manchester, England-based DJ Mike Pickering handled the third, and Primal Scream vocalist Bobby Gillespie brought together the fourth.

Discs one and two cull album tracks, singles, B-sides, and such. On the first, Sawyer relies on such hits as "Temptation," "True Faith," "Regret," "Bizarre Love Triangle," and "Blue Monday." McCready's collection differs with its focus on deeper album cuts such as "Your Silent Face," "Sooner Than You Think," "Everyone Everywhere," and the rare B-side "Cries and Whispers."

Pickering's disc three is mostly made up of remixes, and includes six tracks previously unissued in the U.S. Among the highlights are an extended instrumental mix of the Chemical Brothers-produced "Here To Stay" and a Lee Coombs remix of "Crystal." Also featured are tracks remixed by Koma & Bones, Robert Racic, Sabres, John Robie, Steve "Silk" Hurley, Jam & Spoon, Shep Pettibone, and Arthur Baker.

To create the final disc, Gillespie sorted through hundreds of hours of live recordings to choose 14 tracks, none of which have been previously released anywhere in the world. His selections span New Order's entire career, ranging from an early recording of "In a Lonely Place" from a Glastonbury Festival appearance in 1981 to a version of "Crystal" performed earlier this year during a stop on Australia's Big Day Out festival tour. Live recordings of "Procession," "Everything's Gone Green," "Age of Consent," "This Time of Night," "Turn My Way," and "Temptation" are also included.

"International," meanwhile, will assemble 14 New Order songs, including the original 12-inch version of "Blue Monday," Pettibone's mix of "Bizarre Love Triangle," and such favorites as "True Faith," "Regret," "Crystal," and "60 MPH." A limited number of copies will also include an additional five-song second disc, the content of which was unknown at deadline.

Last year's "Get Ready" ended an eight-year studio album silence for New Order (heralded a year earlier by "Brutal," which appeared on the soundtrack to "The Beach"). The Warner Bros. set debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's Top Electronic Albums chart and No. 41 on The Billboard 200. On Billboard's Hot Dance Music charts, lead single "Crystal" topped the Club Play tally and reached No. 3 on the Maxi-Singles Sales roundup.

Rhino Records will release the four-disc New Order box set Retro on December 17th 2002 (US). The collection features hits, previously unreleased material, as well as a disc of live tracks handpicked by Primal Scream's singer Bobby Gillespie. The label will also release International, a single-disc New Order greatest hits collection, on January 28th 2003 (US).

Retro spans New Order's twenty-one-year career, with the first two discs focusing on hits like "Bizarre Love Triangle" and "Blue Monday" and their B-sides, while the third disc will feature remixes, including the Chemical Brothers' re-jiggering of "Here to Stay."

Also included in the compilation are "Crystal," "Slow Jam" and "Run Wild" from the band's latest album, Get Ready (2001). "The excitement in Get Ready is worthy of being eighteen," bassist Peter Hook told Rolling Stone last year. "I listen to it, and I feel very energized."

'GLASTONBURY' POSTPONED!

The stage version of 'GLASTONBURY', directed by KEITH ALLEN and designed by DAMIEN HIRST, has been postponed in MANCHESTER.

The event was scheduled to visit Manchester from Wednesday (October 23) to Saturday (October 26). However, it has been postponed. Organisers cite "Council Licensing difficulties" as the reason.

A statement reads: "The production will no longer be staged in the marquee at Whitworth Park. The producers still plan to tour the production to Manchester and will be announcing a new venue for later in November, in due course.

"The company apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience caused to those who have already booked to see the show this week in Manchester. All tickets will be valid for the forthcoming performances in November."

As a result, the production will remain in Cardiff at Pontcanna Fields for a second week.

Report from manchesteronline.co.uk:

Drama over Glastonbury play cancellation

Belinda Hanks

A LICENSING mix-up has left hundreds of music fans disappointed after the cancellation of the play Glastonbury at Whitworth Park.

The stage version of the festival, written by Manchester's Zoe Lewis, has Brit-art's Damien Hirst on board as set designer, Fat Les frontman Keith Allen doubling up as actor and director and had recruited New Order to provide musical interludes live at the show's Whitworth Park tour dates.

Disappointed ticket holders have been told the show will not go ahead at that venue although organisers say they are doing everything they can to find an alternative space.

Mr Clive Darnell, 34, from central Manchester was one of those who paid for tickets. He told ManchesterOnline: "The ticket agency changed the dates and didn't let me know. Now they've cancelled those dates as well.

"I've had to pay postage and the booking fee. Plus, we had two friends travelling from London and two from Hull to go and see it. It's completely messed up the weekend."

Licence

Manchester City Council has confirmed it was unable to grant a licence for Glastonbury from October 22-26, and said the play's organisers had incorrectly applied for the wrong one.

A city council spokeswoman explained: "They (the organisers) applied for a stage play licence, but need a public entertainment licence."

She added: "The Council is still negotiating to see if we can provide them with a suitable venue and licence and that's still in progress."

She did confirm, however, that it would not be at Whitworth Park, because it is now unavailable and booked up: "We are hoping we can stage it somewhere else."

Writer Zoe Lewis declined to comment on the licence fiasco, but promised the show would go ahead on the rescheduled dates (October 22-26) and the venue will be confirmed ASAP.

Ticket agent Wayahead has now told Mr Darnell he will get a refund.

Anyone with tickets for Glastonbury can return them to Wayahead for a refund at Wayahead box office, The Hollows, St James's Street, Nottingham, NG1 6FJ, phone 08712 200 260 or visit the website below.

Report from NME:
Ex-FACTORY RECORDS boss TONY WILSON has been declared bankrupt, but is claiming it is all a mistake.

Wilson, whose Factory label launched Happy Mondays and New Order, is due in court in at the end of the week in an attempt to get the judgement overturned.

He told the Manchester Evening News: "It's all been one big clerical cock-up and I'm going back to court to have it annulled. I'm very annoyed by the whole situation and I don't know what the Inland Revenue has been up to. I'm actually in the most solvent financial position I've been in for years right now."

A spokeswoman for Manchester County Court told the paper that Wilson was adjudged bankrupt on September 13 after a hearing at the London Royal Courts of Justice.

Wilson was the focus of the Michael Winterbottom film '24 Hour Party People', starring Steve Coogan. He currently works for Granada News.

ARTHUR BAKER vs. NEW ORDER – ‘CONFUSION’

 

THE WHACKED MIXES

The second chapter of the Whacked Records story so far sees Arthur Baker and friends traveling back in time to 1983 to re-treat NEW ORDER’S seminal ‘CONFUSION’, (the track which was Bakers first collaboration with his longtime Mancunian friends) transporting it forward to 2002, deconstructing it and launching it straight back to the dancefloor.

Remixes that cover everybody’s palette from mongoloid house, electroclash, progressive breaks, dub and pure fucked up under ground come courtesy of KOMA & BONES, JUNIOR SANCHEZ, LARRY TEE, ASTO and ARTHUR BAKER himself - all artists who, like the track itself, need no introduction. The Koma & Bones recently hit  number 2 on the DJ Beats and Breaks Chart and was a Sure Player Pick in the Sept 20-Oct 2 issue. It was a Cool Cut Charts pick and has been played regularly by Ali B on Capitol Radio, James Hyman on XFM, Tayo on KISS and Annie Nightingale on RADIO ONE.

‘Confusion’ will be available on the following formats:

12” wackt002                 12”wackt002re                       CD wackt002cd

A.  Koma&Bones Mix      A1. Jr. Sanchez Vocal Mix       1. Koma&Bones Mix

B1.Larry T’s Mix             A2. Arthur Baker’s Mix           2. Arthur Baker’ Edit

B2.Confused parts         B.   Asto’s Mix                         3. Larry T’s Edit

                                                                                     4. Junior Sanchez’s Edit

                                                                                     5. Asto’s Edit

‘Confusion - The Whacked Mixes’ are released on 4th November 2002 on Whacked Records.

"CONFUSION" is available for pre-orders at a special price for a limited period at www.opalmusic.com.

Report from Vincent ( info from Dot music.com ):
Fatboy Slim, New Order, Joe Strummer, UB40 and Alabama 3 are to star in the forthcoming Keith Allen-directed play, 'Glastonbury'.

The play, which charts the experiences of seven festival goers, visits five venues over the coming months and features Damien Hirst designed sets underneath a 'big top' style circus tent.

Director Allen explained: "It's a play that will attract an audience that wouldn't normally go to the theatre.

"And if you want to attract a non-theatre audience don't put it in a theatre. It's a brilliant device to get people in to watch a play and think, 'Christ I get this, I understand this'.

"I passionately believe that people are bored with television to be honest, and everything about television. Not just reality TV, but most music TV is rank and incredibly boring, I think people don't go to 'shows' because it's never been on their agenda before.

"Basically everyone's 'tent-literate'," he added, "so why not do a show in a tent then."

Though a London venue has yet to be confirmed, organisers are hoping to secure a run at the Camden Roundhouse in 2003.

He told Xfm: "We're hoping it'll come into the Roundhouse, that's the plan, about February next year.

"Who would I like to play? Primal Scream, that'd be absolutely perfect, actually I'm speaking to Mani (Primal Scream bassist) at the moment about appearing in one of these shows.

"In fact we might have Moby, as he'd be over here at the end of our tour. That would be good. Can you imagine? 'Bloody hell, there's Moby'."

Artists involved in the tour will play dates that correspond to their individual hometowns.

Full tour dates are as follows:

Oct 16-19: Cardiff Bute Park
Alabama 3
Joe Strummer

Oct 23-26: Manchester Whitworth Park
New Order

Oct 30 - Nov 2: Birmingham, Cannon Hill Park
UB40

Nov 6-10: Brighton, The Level
Fatboy Slim

Tickets are available now at £15 (£10 concessions). http://www.wayahead.com?a=glastonb

    Report from VH1:

    Latest New Order Gems Out Of Reach For U.S. Fans
     
    New box set, greatest-hits disc not scheduled for release Stateside.

    Did you find 1995's Best of New Order unsatisfying? Did the movie "24 Hour Party People" have you itching for more New Order rarities? Well, if you live in the U.S. consider yourself S.O.L.

    Though they're slated for release overseas,
    neither New Order's forthcoming box set nor their new greatest hits CD, Here to Stay, are slated to land in U.S. stores, due to the band's current wrangling with parent label WEA.

    Last year when New Order released their seventh studio album, Get Ready, it seemed like nobody was all that ready for their return. After an eight-year hiatus, the post-punk pioneers got a tepid reception, barely marking up the Billboard albums chart before falling off entirely.

    And even though a chorus of critics hailed Get Ready as one of the best albums of 2001, it took the release of Michael Winterbottom's homage to No Wave Manchester, "24 Hour Party People," to put New Order back on the proverbial map.

    Today New Order are riding on a full tank of pop-culture clout with a new generation of freshly minted fans. However, despite the swell of renewed interest, none of WEA's affiliated labels — such as Atlantic, Warner Bros. and Rhino — has stepped forward to put out the rarities-riddled box set or the new greatest-hits collection, which features period remixes.

    A rep from New Order's U.S. management accused the record companies of lacking a spine. "If record companies and radio can't exploit bands, then they don't know how to handle them. I think it's systematic of the whole industry, not just one company. These companies can only handle radio fodder, although I don't know what that says about the whole business itself."

    WEA had no comment except to reiterate that it will be releasing Here to Stay internationally and that New Order still have a label relationship with Warner Bros. in the United States.

    Track listing for Here to Stay:

    • "Ceremony"
       
    • "Blue Monday" (original 12-inch mix)
       
    • "Confusion" (Arthur Baker 12-inch mix)
       
    • "Thieves Like Us"
       
    • "Perfect Kiss" (original 12-inch mix)
       
    • "Shellshock"
       
    • "Bizarre Love Triangle" (Shep Pettibone 12-inch mix)
       
    • "True Faith" (original 12-inch mix)
       
    • "Touched by the Hand of God" (original 12-inch mix)
       
    • "Crystal"
       
    • "60MPH"
       
    • "Here to Stay"

    Report from The Musos (www.cup.uk.com)on Peter Hook (Greatest bass player from Salford)(Thanks Robert from the info):

    Damon Gough, Peter Hook and Primal Scream's Mani take to the stage...... 
     

     

     

     

    Our inaugural presenters, Jonny Vegas and Lauren Laverne announced the winners, the stars took to the stage and the first of The Musos were taken away by the likes of Ian Brown, Nitin Sawhney and Damon Gough. 

     

    Musicians voting for Musicians is what its all about and our winners seemed to get and appreciate the message:

     

     

    In an indoor venue, turfed entirely in real grass, complete with marquees and portaloos, the last festival of the summer took place. A blinding repertoire of live performances from The Darkness, Big Sur, Kid Galahad and Reef put everyone in the mood. Reef topped off a raucous night by taking to the stage with The Jimi Hendrix Experience's Bass-Player, Noel Redding to perform 'Hey Joe' and 'Voodoo Chile'. A fitting finale indeed. 

     

    The evening was beyond all expectations and we all feel The Musos has now firmly established itself in the Music Industry calendar.

     

    Get used to us - we're here to stay!

    “What I’d like to say is (points to Johnny Vegas) shut the f*** up and (points to Lauren Laverne) shut the f*** up. When I started in this business in nineteen f****** seventy f******* seven we had beliefs and trust in people and trust in ourselves and it’s nice that twenty-five years later we now we have trust in someone. I’d like to thank my wife Becky for being my f******* mainstay throughout everything. I’d like to thank my mother. I’d like to thank my son, Jack and my daughter, Heather and my daughter, Jessica. Oh and Noel (Redding). And do you know what? Us bass players have got to stick together because nobody else wants to have anyf*******thing to do with us. It makes me laugh right, because I’ve been with Mani and he’s a ****. I want to thank Paul Simenon for wearing his bass low, Jean Jaques Burnell for having aggression. John Entwhistle for thinking he’s better than the lead guitarist when we know we’re better than the lead guitarist, right?  I want to thank Mani for making me party, I want to thank Keith Allen, Ian Curtis, Bernard Sumner, Steven Morris and I want to thank the best three-fingered, tone deaf bass player in Salford . And that’s me. Goodnight. F*** you. 

    - Hooky leaves the stage, forgetting  to pick up award. He returns to smash more microphone stands and collect award, leaving Jonny to cower behind the lectern saying "Oh f**k, he's back". He then returns to stage several times thereafter to “help” Damon Gough collect award, to rearrange microphone stands and to grab Johnny’s chest.

    NEW 1400 CAPACITY CLUB FOR MANCHESTER

    The Hacienda might have been unceremoniously turned into dust to make way for yuppie flats, but the city’s dance culture isn’t dead yet. A new 1400 capacity club, Ascension, will be opening its doors to the Mancunian massive on Thursday November 28. The club is housed in a five-floor building, which once housed Marks and Spencers. The building was gutted leaving designers and architects a blank slate to create a new environment. The top two floors have been turned into offices and recording studios for the creative industries, whilst the club is housed on the ground floor and basement. Ascension incorporates a two story, double decked bar and DJ booth which aims to create a sense of connection between the two floors. It will launch with a mini Manchester festival:

    Report from NME:
    NEW ORDER, OCEAN COLOUR SCENE THE ALABAMA THREE and UB40 are among the band who will feature when a new play about the GLASTONBURY festival tours the UK .

    The play, scriptwrited by Zoe Lewis, directed by actor and Glasto regular Keith Allen and with set design by controversial artist Damien Hirst, tells the story of seven very different visitors to Glastonbury. The couples meet, part, take drugs and party, before the story spins to a bleak and dramatic conclusion.

    The play will be performed in giant marquee that will be erected in turn in Brighton, Cardiff, Manchester and Birmingham, and the audience will pass through a series of sideshows, campfires and stalls before being entertained by a rotating line-up of bands, including the likes of New Order and UB40.

    Tomorrow night (September 9) Lewis, Allen and Hirst will mark the start of a 'pilot tour' for the play with a party outside London's Camden Roundhouse venue. Eventually the trio hope to take the play back there for a London run.

    Hirst has designed the set according to his friend and Fat Les bandmate Allen's wish to recreate a festival atmosphere.

    Allen said: "Damien has designed a set that will be like a corner of Glastonbury, with two revolving daisies in the middle. The audience will be able to lie down on cushions and drink and smoke."

  • just got the news that HOOKY (yes, that's our Peter Hook) is DJing at the STONE LOVE club in NEWCASTLE next Thursday (September 12th).

    There are posters all over Newcastle about this event.

    info from Dotmusic:
    The dotmusic-endorsed inaugural Muso Awards took place this week amidst the kind of booze-fuelled chaos that was only to be expected from the first award show for musicians voted by musicians.

    Winners on the night included Paul Weller (The Musos' Muso), Ian Brown (Best Single), Badly Drawn Boy (Best Songwriter) and New Order's Peter Hook (Best Bass).

    Decked out like an authentic festival backstage area, with real turf covering the floor and plastic tables, the Ocean Venue was transformed into Glastonbury in North East London.

    Presented by Johnny Vegas and Lauren Laverne, the awards were sponsored by dotmusic in support of the Kandu Arts and Streetz Ahead charities that have worked with artists including Damon Albarn to carry out music workshops in schools in London and Bristol.

    Peter Hook made an early start to the chaos when, visibly worse for wear, he kicked over presenter Johnny Vegas' mic stand and launched into a ranted tribute to bass-playing legends including The Who's John Entwistle and Mani of Primal Scream and The Stone Roses.

    Badly Drawn Boy looked somewhat perplexed when Hook again invaded the stage and ordered Mani to join him.

    Later, Reef impressed the crowd when they appeared onstage with Jimi Hendrix Experience bassist Noel Redding to play a blistering version of 'Voodoo Chile'.

    The winners in full:

    The Musos Muso: Paul Weller
    Best Album: Nitin Sawhney
    Best Single: Ian Brown
    Best Vocal: PJ Harvey
    Best Lead Guitar: Jonny Greenwood - Radiohead
    Best Drummer: Alan White - Oasis
    Best Bass: Peter Hook - New Order
    Best Keyboard: Tony Rogers - The Charlatans
    Best Songwriter: Badly Drawn Boy
    Best Live Act: Charlatans
    Best New Act: Haven

    From Playlouder.com:
    THE MUSOS KICK ASS!
    The fights! The swearing! The grass!

    What looked like being a dull awards ceremony became the new Brits last night, when The Musos' Best Bassist winner Peter Hook went characteristically barking.

    After telling hosts Jonny Vegas and Lauren Laverne to "fuck right off", Hook delivered a rambling speech, swore a lot, and fell off the stage. He then Reappeared during Badly Drawn Boy's speech, grabbing his award and swearing some more, and was joined by a similarly pissed up Mani to shout "fuck this shit" at the crowd. He spent the rest of the evening hitting people with his award and beaming dribblishly, occasionally throwing people to the ground and laughing. "I am entitled to have a good time," he shouted at us at some point, and who could disagree?

    In other Musos news, Ian Brown accepted his speech with the classic line, "stay off the cocaine," as hundreds of gakked up industry swine chattered oblivious, Badly Drawn Boy wore a NEW HAT (!!!), The Darkness and Crack Village decided to make "the new 'Walk This Way'", and the latter's Akira had a fight with two of My Vitriol. All in all a good night, really.

    Info from DOTMUSIC:
    September 3 sees the first of a new kind of awards show, The Musos where awards are voted by musicians for musicians.

    dotmusic is official sponsor for the event in which categories will include Best Guitarist, Best Songwriter, Best Single and more.

    All the votes come from registered musicians, casting their verdict on their peers.

    The award ceremony will take place on the evening of September 3 at Hackney Empire in London and will offer a 'virtual backstage festival' experience with exclusive performances from both established artists and new bands alike.

    DJing on the night will be Primal Scream, Irvine Welsh and others digging deep into rarely heard record collections.

    The Musos is unique because it is the only award ceremony which directly involves the musicians themselves. Award winners are voted for by their peers through a panel of top artists including newcomers such as Starsailor and My Vitriol to established artists such as Rod Stewart, Oasis, Blur, Bono and Ronnie Wood.

    Over 10,000 registered UK musicians will be able to cast their vote for the musicians that inspire their own work. From established stars to the artist just breaking through - your vote counts. With the support of the Artists up and down the country, The Musos is set to become the biggest voting event in the Music Industry calendar.

    Review from DOTMUSIC (Thanks Allan):
    Released on: Mon 23 Sep 2002
    NEW ORDER - CONFUSION (KOMA & BONES MIX) (WHACKED)

    This first collaboration between New Order and the legendary DJ/producer Arthur Baker brought Manchester's lively indie scene together with the sound of New York.

    It was a track that was instrumental in setting the stage for the dance explosion that followed. On its' 20th anniversary, Whacked have rounded up a fine collection of remixes.

    The track lends itself well here to Koma and Bones shadowy breaks mix.

    They've retained the original vibe, along with Peter Hook's distinctive bass, in both a vocal and dub offering. The memories come flooding back and it's beautiful to hear again, in any variation.

    Info emailed by Momo:
    meReleased September 30th
    Available on mix CD and unmixed triple vinyl.

    Tracklist + New Order Comments

    01. Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band 'Big Eyed Beans From Venus'
    A sci-fi blues freak out from the variable genius Van Vliet with spine tingling slide additions from Zoot Horn Rollo. Quite obviously the inspiration behind 'Confusion'

    02. Primal Scream 'Higher Than the Sun'
    A bit from the Orb's compressed pop mix and the stratospheric end bit from Weatherall's dub symphony with the metronomic Jah Wobble providing an unwavering backbone. Who could miss the similarities between this and Bizarre Love Triangle?

    03. Missy Elliot 'The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)'
    Timbaland's twitchy rhythms versus the cranky observations of the lady in the inflatable space suit. This was massive on the Joy Division tour bus.

    04. The Velvet Underground 'Venus in Furs'
    The sleazy cool reflected in the distance between Peter Hook's feet when he used to wear those leather trousers is perfectly encapsulated in Lou Reed's pervily sublime steal of a famous mucky book and the sound of John Cale sawing a cello in half. Which somehow perfectly leads us beneath a motorway bridge near NorthendenŠ.

    05. Doves 'M62 Song'
    You can hear the trucks and cars on this dark lullaby recorded in the dead of night. And the mic is passed to a feller in a sparkly jacket and greasy hairŠ.

    06. Roxy Music 'In Every Dream Home a Heartache'
    Simultaneously sinister and hilarious this love song for an inflatable lady friend was the kind of thing that the responsible young citizens that went on to make up New Order would twist their impressionable minds with.

    07. Cat Stevens 'Was Dog a Doughnut?'
    A peak time classic at Jellybean's Funhouse when New Order first alighted in electro land NY. Chick Corea is playing keyboards on this. On paper it might seem ridiculous, in reality it is perfect.

    08. Mantronix 'Bassline'
    Before narrow-mindedness set up a fence between house and hip-hop, this was the kind of record that filled the floor with ease at the Hacienda. Lyrically it's all but irrelevant, but its frantic edits and undeniable energy still make it special.

    09. The Groundhogs 'Cherry Red'
    A psychotic energy flash from a much misunderstood abstract blues band who, while their contemporaries sang of pixies and hobbits, traversed the same idiosyncratic route as Joy Division did almost ten years later. Peter Hook would probably tell you that Tony McPhee says more about his life than JG Ballard.

    10. Joey Beltram 'Energy Flash'
    Downright demonic, during the creation of this mix, shards of this devilish techno masterpiece appeared to replay in other rooms in the building for no good reason. Also features the word 'Ecstasy' which, though now ridiculous, at the time had a certain frisson.

    11. Donna Summer 'I Feel Love (Patrick Cowley mix)'
    Edited down from its original 15-minute glory in order to keep it burning here, this record still sounds incredible in any form. What could they have been thinking/drinking in Munich back then?

    12. Can 'Mushroom'
    Krautrock underpinned by the inspirational drumming of Jaki Liebezeit who appears to have studied under James Brown while the rest of the band kept busy sellotaping bits of dark Velvet to Stockhausen's arty pants. And Explosions as a bonus- what more could you need in any piece of music?

    13. Rhythim is Rhythim 'The Dance'
    Almost 15 years old and still peerless in all it's skeletal glory. Let's leave some intellectuals to draw a line between this and something off Power Corruption and Lies.

    14. Giorgio Vs Talla 2XLC 'E=MC2'
    Acknowledged on more than one occasion by Bernard Sumner as a transitional influence on the fledgling New Order, this celebration of machine music is the only place to end.

    Report from Colin:
    the New Order box set is due to be released soon with a selection of unreleased material of studio recordings recorded before Gillian joined the line up. Reliable sources tell me there is a considerable amount of unheard recordings that will be
    released with the box set as well as a singles compilation and a number of
    live recordings. Also an All Back To Mine compilation consisting of New Orders favorite tracks is also scheduled for release. As far as I know the format will be CD only and the reliable source of information may well be pulling his kite by now.

    Report from Simon E.:
    Taken from Rennie Pilgrim's record reviews at the tcr.uk.com site. Sounds like a belter remix- especially if you like breaks.

    < NEW ORDER >< 'CONFUSION' >
    [ WACKED ]

    One of the advantages of being electronic legend Arthur 'Hell's Angel' Baker is that you get to release material from other electronic legends on your new label. Once Koma + Bones had finished wetting their pants over the remix request they got their heads down and applied their super tight production skills give this very famous tune a 21st Century re-rub. Also present and correct are enough of the original to remind why it was such a classic in the first place -including Peter Hook's patented bass riffs. Apparently Bernard Sumner likes this new version so much he wants to re-vocal it and add it to the forthcoming New Order box set. Top.

    The New York Times article (Aug 4, 2002):


    A NIGHT OUT WITH Tony Wilson by Hilary De Vries

    LOS ANGELES

    BEYOND his glasses, black Gaultier sarong and sandals, not to mention the reputation for high-voltage iconoclasm that has followed him since he was a lad back in Manchester, England — or "Madchester," as it was then known — it's the frosted blue polish on Tony Wilson's toenails that seals it.

    "She did that five years ago and it annoyed people, so I've continued to do it," Mr. Wilson said on Tuesday evening, nodding at his partner, Yvette Livesey, a former beauty queen and the painter of his toenails. "I have this problem that I just like to get a reaction from people," he said as he ambled through the lobby of the Chateau Marmont hotel, trailed by a rather large entourage and clutching a glass of red wine.

    A TV anchor and music impresario who helped create the rave music scene in Britain in the early 1980's with his Factory Records label and fabled Hacienda nightclub, Mr. Wilson was in town to promote "24-Hour Party People," a mockumentary based on his life. The film, which opens on Friday, was directed by Michael Winterbottom and stars the British comedian Steve Coogan as Mr. Wilson.

    "When Michael first came to me about doing the film, I said: `Go away. That's the past,' " Mr. Wilson recalled. His rapid-fire conversation is laced with the same rhetorical fervor that led him to help found Factory Records in 1976 with a contract literally signed in his own blood. "But you don't know reality until someone makes a fiction of it," he said about his decision to agree to the film. "Reality needs the completion of fiction."

    That would also serve as a keynote for the evening. It included dinner at Lucky Duck, a Chinese restaurant-cum-club partly owned by Tom Atencio, the North American manager of New Order, one of Factory Records' bands, and a stop at the Pleasure Chest, a sex shop that Mr. Wilson considers a unique archive of American culture. "Unlike Britain, people in America don't talk about sex, but they have things there that you can't find anywhere else in the world," he said.

    The final and most restorative stop was for coffee and black-and-white cookies at Canter's deli to reminisce with Rodney Bingenheimer, a fixture in the local music scene. Mr. Bingenheimer, a longtime disc jockey, said, "Punk started in New York, but Tony started British punk."

    Mr. Wilson, 52, said wryly, "I'm an old hippie, so normally when we come to L.A., we just go to meetings and then do drugs and have sex." He led the group down the hotel driveway. In the car, he mused about the music scene in Britain. "There's an entire generation of new bands influenced by Nirvana and obsessed with American New Metal music, like Korn and Limp Bizkit," Mr. Wilson shouted over the music.

    "Yvette, is that a kilt?" interrupted Andrew Eaton, the film's producer, pointing at Mr. Wilson's sarong. "I mean, is there actually anything underneath that?"

    "Oh, it's really boring," Ms. Livesey shot back, lifting Mr. Wilson's sarong to reveal a pair of pants legs under the skirt flap. "It's really trousers."

    At Lucky Duck, Mr. Wilson greeted Brian Loucks, a music agent and an old friend, who introduced him to his dinner companion, Diane Warren, the Grammy-winning songwriter. "Tony is such an amazing person," Mr. Loucks exclaimed. "He's a true visionary."

    In the restaurant, Mr. Wilson ordered a mojito and asked, "Who was that?," referring to Ms. Warren.

    "Oh, she writes songs for everybody," said Ms. Livesey, who produces music industry seminars with Mr. Wilson.

    It was nearly midnight by the time they headed back to the Chateau Marmont. "In the 80's we played the Roxy and the Whiskey with our bands," Mr. Wilson recalled, speaking of legendary Los Angeles rock clubs as the car tooled down Sunset Boulevard past a billboard advertising "24-Hour Party People."

    He looked up at the sign then down at his watch and sighed. "We're not really 24-hour party people anymore," he said. "That's the irony."

    Little report from New York where I went August 1 to the premiere in the US of "24 Hour Party People".
    Like Moby said "Outstanding",I had a great time seeing a movie about the legendary Factory Records label and The Hacienda club, and bands like Joy Division, New Order, Happy Mondays....


    Then I went to the Party where I had a little chat with Tony Wilson. Carl Cox was the DJ, there was great music mixing in the beginning that brought back a sense of nostalgia of music that you no longer have the pleasure of hearing much... such as, Joy Division / The Smiths / Stone Roses / The Charlatans / Inspiral Carpets / The Soup Dragons... I did see Moby at the party and some of the cast.

    Official Site: http://www.mgm.com/ua/24hourpartypeople/

    Manchester, 1976. Tony Wilson (Steve Coogan) is an ambitious but frustrated
    local TV news reporter looking for a way to make his mark. After witnessing a life-changing concert by an unknown band known as the Sex Pistols, he persuades his station to televise one of their performances, and soon Manchester's punk groups are clamoring for him to manage them. Riding the wave of a musical revolution, Wilson and his friends create the legendary Factory Records label and The Hacienda club, and bands like Joy Division, New Order, and the Happy Mondays emerge to change the industry forever.
    Packed with an incredible soundtrack and a famous cast of characters,
    24 Hour Party People is a sprawling, energetic, and humorous history of one of the most important periods in modern music.

    BAKER GETS WHACKED OUT

    Ubiquitous breaks-meister, electro pioneer and New Order dude Arthur Baker has started up another label, Whacked! First up is 'Hold Your Head Up', a better based around Argent's 60s choon of the same name with an excellent mix from Belgium's bootleg bastards Soulwax and one from tribal breaks man Rennie Pilgrem on the flip. The likes of Si Begg, Trevor Jackson and Jagz Kooner are also lined up to be Whacked! soon.

    Arthur told Slant: "My plans are to put out punky electro stuff. It's not really big room house music, it's more eclectic than that. I've been digging back in the old dustry crates a bit as well. The guys from Soulwax have
    done a great, really surprising mix. I didn't know what they were going to do.
    Koma and Bones have also done an amazing mix of [New Order's] Confusion, that'll be out on promo soon. Trevor Jackson's doing some mixes, I've already done another track with Soulwax, one with Alan Vegas from
    Suicide. Keeping busy, yeah..."

    NEW ORDER, Oasis, The Charlatans all turned down the offer to play at the closing ceremony of next months commonwealth games. Manchester's biggest heroes declined to support the event, being held in the city for the first time. Instead, Eastbournes Toploader will provide the musical end to the grande finale on August 4. My source tells me "The organizers were really keen to get a big home town name, so the obvious choices were New Order, Oasis and The Charlatans - however all refused the slot. The bands all came to the same conclusion - that the gig would be a bit naff."
    Robbie Williams was another to turn down the offer of playing at the ceremony.

    New Order behind new DJ mix album

    New Order have curated a compilation album for DMC's Back To Mine DJ mix series.

    It is currently scheduled for release in August.

    The band are set to start work on a new album, the follow-up to last year's comeback effort, Get Ready.

    Bassist Peter Hook says New Order are anxious to start recording again following the album's success.

    "We're enjoying ourselves so much, we thought we'd strike while the iron's hot," Hook tells this month's Mixer magazine.

    Hook claims the album will be "24 hours of Cajun house, with a bit of Liverpool, tap dancing and line dancing."

    Reviews From The Sun (Thanks To Vincent): Live: New Order

    MANCHESTER’S Move Festival ended with the city’s biggest bands playing at their best.

    NEW ORDER, DOVES and ELBOW were greeted by the home crowd at Old Trafford Cricket Ground with thunderous applause.

    Elbow got the day off to an impressive start and Doves kept everything moving nicely.

    But there was no doubt who the stars were.

    New Order’s BERNARD SUMNER and PETER HOOK may be fatter and wrinklier but their set was outstanding.

    Opening with Love Vigilantes then Crystal – their best single in years – the place lit up with lasers and a sea of clapping hands.

    They played all the hits, including Bizarre Love Triangle, Touched By The Hand Of God, True Faith and Joy Division’s Transmission.

    Football anthem World In Motion saw comedian KEITH ALLEN join them to do the John Barnes rap.

    Add an encore of the recent Blue Monday/Can’t Get You Out Of My Head remix and you had one amazing night.

    Well beside being my birthday today (Bastille Day ), some info on yesterday New Order Concert

     
    Report From NME:
    New Order - emotional, yesterday

    MANCHESTER UNITED

    New Order were joined onstage by comedian Keith Allen for a work through football anthem ’World In Motion’ during their homecoming gig on the final day of the NME-sponsored Move Festival, last night (July 13).

    Allen joined the veteran Manchester band just before the encore, taking the chanting vocal parts and the John Barnes ‘rap’ from the original – released as the 1990 England World Cup football squad anthem.

    Singer Bernard Sumner introduced Allen as the "prince of darkness," and jokingly referred to the failure of his recent World Cup song with Fat Les, ‘Who Invented Fish and Chips?’ saying, "his last single didn’t do very well so we had to bring him on."

    The triumphant show also saw the band return Kylie Minogue’s tribute, by mixing ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’ into the beginning and end of their classic ‘Blue Monday’. Kylie had worked the same two tracks at the Brit Awards.

    Lancashire County Cricket Club, also saw New Order continue their recent tradition of packing the set with songs from their Joy Division days, including ‘Transmission’ and ‘Atmosphere’, ‘She’s Lost Control’ – which bassist Peter Hook dedicated to late Who bassist John Entwhistle. Hook also dedicated ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ "to all of you, Manchester, because I’m fucking proud to live here."

    Sumner also confirmed that Move would be their last show before returning to the studio to work on the follow-up to last year’s ‘Get Ready’ album.

    The finale of the four-day event doubled-up as a celebration of music in Manchester, seeing rapturously-received sets from local favourites Doves, Elbow and Alfie.

    Last-minute additions Echo and the Bunnymen defied speculation that they might the subject of abuse from the partisan crowd as they were the sole act on the bill from Liverpool. Civic rivalry between the two towns is legendary. The Bunnymen were drafted in after Shaun Ryder – due to debut his new solo project – dropped out at the eleventh hour.

    Alongside New Order, the last four days at Move saw headline shows from Paul Weller, Green Day and David Bowie.

    New Order's Peter Hook

    24 Hour Party People

    City Life

    New Order's Peter Hook reveals the band's plans to play Old Trafford and get Beckham to rap on a remix of World In Motion.

    New Order are to top a massive Manchester line-up on the final day of the new Move festival which will will take place at Lancashire County Cricket Club from Thursday, July 11 - 13 supported by Doves, Shaun Ryder's new band SWR, Elbow and Alfie.

    Thursday is headlined by Green Day, with No Doubt and more names to be announced. Friday is headlined by Paul Weller, with Ian Brown, Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros, Shed 7 and Haven. Tickets are on sale now.

    So how are you looking forward to playing LCCC?

    "Yeah, definitely. It's good 'cos you've got a bunch of Yanks, then a Cockney, but you finish up with the Mancs. It's gonna be the last date that we do as well, before we stop playing to go back in and start the new album, so it'll be good to go out with a real bang. The only thing is, 'cos it'll be such a top day out, it's one of those where your mates end up having a better time than you.

    Are you looking forward to playing with the likes of Shaun Ryder and Doves?

    Yeah, if Shaun's stuff is anything like his old stuff then it'll be entertaining to say the least. And Doves are always good value aren't they?

    Any new additions to the set for the gig?

    Are you trying to say we're boring? [laughs]... no we'll be doing a couple of new tunes. We'll be doing the Chemical Brothers track and we'll maybe pull out World in Motion for the football fans. See if we can't get Beckham to do a bit of rapping on it. He should be well up for it I reckon. Keith [Allen, collaborator on the original 'World In Motion'] is still working on it, so I'm looking forward to that. If it comes off it'll be great. We'll be changing the Joy Division stuff as well, to fit in with the stuff that's included in the film.

    It must be a weird time for you at the moment, what with the film and everything?

    It is weird yeah. Obviously with the film we've all gone through what's documented there, but we've never had to sit there and watch it being played back before us. But generally it's good, it's one of those times when you feel a bit blessed, like nothing can go wrong.

    Report From allstar.com:  

    Paul Oakenfold

    Paul Oakenfold has a few strong words about the film about the Mancester music scene, 24 Hour Party People, which came out in April in the U.K. and is due in the U.S. on Aug. 9.

    "I was involved in that scene from producing [Happy] Mondays, touring with the Stone Roses, and DJing at the Hacienda," Oakenfold told CDNOW's Peter Gaston in a recent interview. "The way [Factory Records founder and author of the book on which the film is based] Tony Wilson's making it out, if it wasn't because of him, music wouldn't exist. It wasn't the be all and end all. There was a scene, it was a good scene, but music's bigger than one band.

    "Dance music's bigger than one DJ. I'd always seen it as more of a uniform approach in the sense that there are a lot of people involved. There's a lot of unsung heroes in that Manchester scene that never got credit. I think the film is quite shallow, myself. It doesn't represent truly what was going on in the scene. All they're trying to do is say that if it wasn't for Manchester, this music wouldn't be big. I disagree with that. The Clash were bigger than all those bands. There was a major scene going on in England at the time, in England as a country, not in one town.

    "If you look at it now, [Tony Wilson] is a real big fool because he signed New Order and Happy Mondays on a napkin, so when his company was 2 million in debt, they had no assets so he couldn't sign on these bands to other record companies to cover his debts and make money, so he ended up making nothing out of it. Why would I want to sign you in my blood? What does that mean? Anyone with common sense knows it's a stupid thing to do."

    The soundtrack to the movie, due July 30 in the US, features New Order, Happy Mondays, Sex Pistols, Joy Division, Moby, and others.

    Review From Designer Magazine (Here's a review of RAM first gig last week): RAM ( new group by David Potts (ex Revenge and Monaco) )are currently putting some gigs together for summer, these are:

    Mcr Roadhouse     5th July
    Mcr Band On The Wall  
    30th July

    More to be confirm very soon
     

    Ram - Night & Day - 12.6.02

    After suffering in the hands of the Libertines earlier tonight I walked the streets of Manchester in search of music. And pied piper like I was lead to the Night & Day cafe where I encountered the poptastic sounds of RAM fronted by a strange but familiar figure on vocals. Of course to those in the know, or at the very least Manchester, that figure is none other than Pottsy from Monaco. If you remember Monaco stormed the charts a few years back with classic songs such as "What Do You Want From Me?", but were always in the shadow of New Order. To condense over a decade of New Order side projects into one sentence - Monaco were better than the Other Two, but way short of Electronic. Simple, concise and to the point.

    Bringing it back up to date, RAM delivered a storming set around last years In The City conference and were tipped to be signed had it not been for various management wrangles which has kept them out of action for the past six months. Back and with a new found energy they do say that good things come to those who wait and if tonight's set is anything to go by Manchester will be washing its hands of Nu-Acoustica lo-fi bullshit and rubbing its hands with glee at a band who can finally fill theatres with its lush pop sounds. Take "My Favourite Onion" with its incessant keyboard motif, before the huge chorus comes in and the biggest smile lights your face since you saw Steve Coogan in 24 Hour Party People.

    The great thing about RAM is that they have this huge Northern heart and soul, but it isn't weighed down with sounding like you archetypal Manchester band. Note the lack of the words The Smiths, Oasis, Stone Roses or the Happy Mondays in the musical references - of course they're all there somewhere in Pottsy horizons, but his scope is bigger than all that and looks back to the harmonies of the Beatles or the Beach Boys through to the grand theatre of bands like My Life Story and the glam generation.

    Whether you were simply a fan of Pottsy in Monaco or are looking for an alternative to the what the yanks are offering us you can do worse than check out RAM. After finally shaking off the Nu-Acoustic tags, Manchester really is the musical capital of England once again and within the next 12 months the likes of RAM, The Cardinals, Stephen Nancy, Fi-Lo Radio, Oceansize and Nylon Pylon will be the only bands you care about. Remember where you read about them first.

    Review From Dotmusic.com
    Gig played on: Sat 8 Jun 2002
    NEW ORDER - FINSBURY PARK, LONDON
     
         


     

    It's only taken them 25 years, but New Order have finally got this gig thing licked. All you need, it would appear, is a singles set, a few rehearsals to shed that hit-or-miss tag, and an approach to stagecraft presumably inspired by a careful study of pantomime. Here are the showmen, anyone?

    "It didn't bloody rain for the Queen," moans Bernard Sumner, contrasting HM's golden jubilee with his band's silver (Concorde even provides a coincidental flypast). In point of fact, it doesn't actually rain for New Order either, though the thousands who've arrived early for an undercard featuring the likes of Air and Echo & The Bunnymen are drenched by torrential afternoon downpours. Things underfoot are decidedly messy - as anyone trusting enough of the English summer to wear sandals can attest - but by the time Sumner and co arrive on stage a little after 8, north London is smiling beneath clear blue skies.

        
     

    Barney doesn't let that minor detail stop him, though. Dancing on the spot when he's not playing guitar, he hams it up throughout, and as he introduces 'Confusion' his entire band leave the stage after he complains that this is his one chance to star. Boom, and, indeed, boom.

    New Order are now happy to not only acknowledge but to celebrate their incarnation as Joy Division, and a great deal of the relaxed and playful spirit of their performance probably stems from this. For a band who have consistently cultivated an aura of mystique, the aimiable blokeishness of much of the set is both unexpected and reassuring. There's something slightly askew about Sumner's aping of Ian Curtis' chin-in-chest vocal during 'She's Lost Control', but the thorough going-over they give to 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' shows that their attitude to these songs, so special to so many, is rightly respectful without being over-reverential.

        
     

    Just as soon as it's warming up, though, the set comes to an abrupt end. And while an encore isn't long in arriving, there's a palpable sense of people feeling somewhat short-changed. Still, the Joy Division obscurity 'Digital' - with guest vocals from Barney's '24 Hour Party People' double, John Sim - followed by a spectral 'Blue Monday' both go a long way to alleviating those concerns. And, while 'Your Silent Face' is the last song, the curtain is really brought down by an inevitable, euphoric 'World In Motion', New Order's feel for the appropriate mood outweighing any artistic preciousness. There are birthday parties where 25,000 people chanting "Ing-ur-land" would be, at best, inappropriate - but this isn't one of them.

    Review from Telegraph.co.uk (Thanks to Mark):

    New Order banish the dark clouds of disunity
    (Filed: 11/06/2002)
     

    Richard Wolfson reviews New Order at Finsbury Park, N4
     

    It was a brave crowd who assembled to witness this rare London appearance by New Order. Dressed for an outdoor adventure course, they spent many hours shivering in the wind and the rain. Support act, the French band Air, began to warm things up as the conditions eased slightly, and a cheer went up when a shaft of sunlight finally broke through. Air's delicate, ambient set matched the mood perfectly, as thawing bodies were drawn gently back into the land of the living.

    By the time New Order hit the stage, the weather had moved on, and the sky was clear. "Sorry about the rain - it's much worse for us backstage though," quipped their frontman, Bernard Sumner, before launching into their latest single, Crystal. The group had brought in Phil Cunningham on guitar and keyboards, to replace Gillian Gilbert. His guitar made a pleasing scrunching double act with Sumner's, and they more than reproduced the rock-heavy sound of their latest album, Get Ready.

    Having overcome several years of near splits and personal differences, the band seems to have rediscovered a manic, joyful unity. Sumner pranced around the stage, occasionally whooping, and the usually irascible bass player, Peter Hook, strutted his stuff like a 10-year-old playing air guitar. All this good humour seemed odd - in their former incarnation as Joy Division, they had a reputation as the world's most miserable band. It was after the suicide of Joy Division's intense lead singer, Ian Curtis, in 1980 that the remaining members re-formed as New Order, and it is only in the past couple of years that they have felt able to play the Joy Division songs. The good humour projected from the stage was echoed by the blow-dried crowd, who sang along in football-chant style with the doom-laden lyrics of songs such as Atmosphere and Love Will Tear Us Apart.

    Regret, True Faith and Ceremony all received the same treatment, bashed out beautifully by the band and sung by the multitude, rather like a Rod Stewart concert. It's hard to begrudge the fans their almost delirious delight, but perhaps the best moments were less crowd-pleasing: an intense heavy metal version of She's Lost Control, and a calm but ecstatic Blue Monday.

    Review by playlouder.com (info by NV):

    Joyful division

    NEW ORDER
    London Finsbury Park, 9 June 2002

    "It didn't rain for the fucking Queen, did it?". No, Mr Sumner, it didn't, but, whereas an admittedly impressive supporting cast (the Furries! The Bunnymen! Erm, Air.) had to wade their way through one of the moister days of the summer, Mother Nature clearly gave in and had a bit of a smile at New Order. She wasn't alone, and rightly so.

    See, they may not be quite the band we remember - we're now well and truly in the post-Gillian era - but there's much about Manchester's favourite glumdiscophiles that never seems afflicted by the ravages of time. Stephen Morris, still the finest drummer your correspondent has ever had the pleasure of seeing (with the possible exception of Blondie's mighty Clem Burke), remains a fearsome pounding metronome and a one-man invitation to dance, while Hooky's bass is a clangorous force of nature and his legendary nutcracker-legs stance, memorably referred to by Mark Radcliffe years ago as "thrutching" and still beyond the repertoire of everyone else you know, is conceivably the eighth wonder of modern civilisation. Barney, meanwhile, can neither entirely sing nor dance in the conventional manner but performs with such an undeniable gusto and affability that you'd have to have not given a damn about any piece of music at all in the last twenty-five years not to be won over. He also proves what surreally fine casting the 24 Hour Party People film was when his younger self, John Simm, comes onstage to duet on 'Digital'.

    Yes, 'Digital'. There we were, half expecting to get most of last year's ace 'Get Ready' with the odd old crowd-pleaser thrown in, but what we get instead, once 'Crystal''s out of the way (which counts as vintage stuff anyway, given its 'Technique-era-style uplifting qualities and familiar lyrical obtusity) is almost purely and simply a greatest hits set with occasional recent flashes like a monumental '60mph'. Oh, and we do, come to think of it, get offered 'Rock The Shack', although we do have to choose between that and 'World In Motion' which, even without the aid of John "you've-got-to-hold-and-give etc" Barnes, is still a cracking Italo-beef anthem, whether you've got caught up in the footy or not. What's intriguing, though, is the inclusion of no less than FIVE Joy Division songs, which is something the Order foreswore for almost the first twenty years of their existence, and although Barney can't substitute the deep, stark resonance of Ian Curtis, he's suitably intense on 'She's Lost Control' and leads a gigantic spasm outbreak to great effect during 'Transmission'.

    And, given their take on those, it's little surprise that they rise manfully to the challenge of reproducing the best work of the band's second incarnation. Longtime student disco faithful 'Bizarre Love Triangle' gets dusted down, proper pop breakthrough 'True Faith' does its clattery thing with effortless panache, and even 'Your Silent Face' (off '83's 'Power, Corruption And Lies', and recognised by a sizeable proportion of a by-then-utterly-devoted audience) shows up to sprinkle Kraftwerkian glitter all across Finsbury Park. To say nothing of the inevitable 'Blue Monday', which still, nineteen years after we first heard it, feels both futuristic and like the most important thing you'll ever hear. Because it is. Given the tragedy and interpersonal acrimony these three men have been through in the last quarter of a century, the fact that they're even here at all is something of a miracle; that they're so obviously loving it is more bonus than we could've hoped for. Now these are jubilee celebrations...

    WORDS: Iain Moffat

     

    Review by billboard.com:

    New Order / June 9 / London (Finsbury Park)

    photo
     

    Following the end of an eight-year recording hiatus, New Order proved very much alive and well in 2001 with the release of the critically lauded album "Get Ready." Since then the band has burst into a creative gallop, having released the collaborative single "Here To Stay" with the Chemical Brothers, and plotting a return to the studio later this year to record a new album.

    The pivotal post-punk innovators are also preparing to celebrate their past with a retrospective box set, and obviously haven't lost their sense of humor, having just re-released the single "World in Motion." The official U.K. World Cup song of 1990, it was a No. 1 U.K. hit but this time around has only managed a disappointing No. 43 showing. Add to that the recent release of the Factory Records biopic, "24 Hour Party People," and it makes for a veritable renaissance, making a ticket to this show hot property indeed.

    It's a shame, then, that outdoor concerts in the U.K. are never a safe bet. With inclement weather virtually a dead certainty, the experience more often than not winds up as an ordeal rather than a pleasurable aural thrill. And so exactly one year after Neil Young performed to a rain sodden Finsbury Park crowd, the venue played host to another legendary, if slightly soggy, act.

    Following a hardy live set by Welsh eccentrics Super Fury Animals that was dampened by rain and a struggling sound system but certainly not spirit, French ambient-lounge exponents Air were left to pitch their delicate dreamy atmospherics amid torrential rain and a justifiably preoccupied audience. Lucky then that producer/songwriter/DJ Arthur Baker was on hand to lighten the mood with turntable histrionics. A long-time New Order collaborator who helped persuade the group to release 1983's omnipotent "Blue Monday," he is obviously a timeless good omen for the band, somehow summoning the sun during his last set.

    With the sky now virtually cloudless, a rather embarrassed looking Bernard Sumner strode onstage and immediately apologized profusely for the weather ("It didn't f***ing rain for the Queen, did it?") before launching into "Crystal." One of the highlights of "Get Ready," it was unfortunately marred by a turgid sound that nearly eliminated both guitar and treble from the equation. Shortly after, all thoughts of rain and a frustratingly weary sound system were banished by the opening notes of the Joy Division classic "Transmission." As Peter Hook swung his bass like an over zealous Viking warrior, the band struggled successfully to overcome an ever-improving mix.

    In the far from glamorous surroundings, the markedly unpretentious middle-aged figures of Hook, Sumner, and drummer Steve Morris cut improbable figures as vendors of sublime, emotionally charged, and groundbreaking music. But swinging between uplifting melodies and emotionally fraught lyricism, the sheer power of delivery and epic sound easily transcended appearances. Prior to launching into an impassioned rendition of "Regret," Sumner paid tribute to an admired and recently deceased contemporary, announcing, "This one's for Dee Dee Ramone. God rest his soul." It was a sentiment already echoed by graffiti on two of the monitors which read "Bye Bye Dee Dee."

    With the previously depleted crowd replenished, Finsbury Park finally began to resemble the party many had been anticipating. With impassioned versions of New Order favorites such as "Bizarre Love Triangle," "True Faith," and "Ceremony" delighting the crowd, it was the volume of Joy Division tracks that proved most astounding. Alongside "Atmosphere," "Love Will Tear Us Apart," and "She's Lost Control" (performed for only the "second time in 25 years," according to Sumner), came a superb take on early single "Digital," which saw actors John Simm and Ralf Little (who portrayed Sumner and Hook in "24 Hour Party People") join the band on stage.

    Alongside the profoundly introverted works of late Joy Division singer Ian Curtis came other surprises, including only the second-ever performance of "Brutal" (the band's contribution to "The Beach" soundtrack). The encore proved riotous with "Blue Monday" helping the audience shake themselves dry with enthusiasm, and a timely delivery of "World in Motion" that proved incredibly popular following the England football team's recent success in the first round of the World Cup.

    One of the most influential British bands of all time, New Order's back catalog still manages to sound fresh, exhilarating, and relevant. With its past providing such a wealth of classic material, it remains to be seen if the group can still prove as inspiring in the future. Either way, it'll be a pleasure finding out.

    Here is New Order's set list:

    "Crystal"
    "Transmission"
    "Regret"
    "Ceremony"
    "60 Miles an Hour"
    "Atmosphere"
    "Brutal"
    "Close Range"
    "She's Lost Control"
    "Bizarre Love Triangle"
    "True Faith"
    "Temptation"
    "Love Will Tear Us Apart"

    encore:
    "Digital"
    "Blue Monday"
    "World in Motion"
    "Your Silent Face"

    This is another update from June 09, Finsbury London backstage. I had the chance to speak to Arthur Baker (DJ Guru / Producer) regarding his future with New Order. At this point he didn't know but they are really good friends. I mentioned to him how great job he did on "Behind Closed Doors" as a producer.

    Hanky Park, from the Salford area, has been invited to record an album with Peter "Hooky" Hook, who will not only be producing, but appearing on some of the tracks as well in July 2002 at Liverpool's Parr Street studios. Hanky Park has been supporting Monaco (Sept 2000) & New Order during their tour.

    Review From the Guardian (Thanks Mark):

    New Order  4 stars  Finsbury Park, London

    Alexis Petridis
    Guardian

    Since they re-formed last year, New Order have crossed a career Rubicon. Always successful, they now seem to be viewed with a new degree of reverence. Their early career as Joy Division is the stuff of myth: brief, influential, tainted by singer Ian Curtis's suicide. But in the past 12 months, New Order themselves have become mythic figures. They have been portrayed on film in Michael Winterbottom's 24 Hour Party People, covered by Kylie Minogue at the Brits, lauded as the band who could make even a football record sound fantastic. Unlikely as it may seem, they have acceded to the role of beloved national treasures, a reminder of a time when it was possible to make the charts while maintaining a laconic Mancunian distance from the music industry's corporate excesses.

    This new status may not have had much of an effect on sales of last year's "comeback" album Get Ready, but it has had a dramatic effect on New Order's demeanour. Once truculent on stage, they have become positively charming. Peter Hook gruffly addresses the audience as "cockney wankers", but it is pantomime banter to match his cartoonish persona: legs splayed, bass guitar scraping the stage. Singer Bernard Sumner, meanwhile, fusses about the rain, apologises when they clatter through under-rehearsed songs, and takes straw polls to determine what should be played next: "Right, put yer 'and up if you want to 'ear Blue Monday."

    The infectiousness of their good humour reveals itself in peculiar ways. A relentlessly downcast meditation on a failed relationship, Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart is perhaps rock's most unlikely candidate for a mass crowd singalong. It becomes a mass crowd singalong, propelled by Sumner's incongruous whooping. "You cry out in your sleep, all my failings exposed," he sings dolorously. "Woooh!" he adds, punching the air. It is probably fair to say this didn't happen too often at Joy Division gigs.

    Tellingly, they perform more Joy Division songs than tracks from Get Ready. They also invest their back catalogue with a power and verve lacking in their newer material. Last year's 60 Miles an Hour rambles shambolically, but 1982's Temptation charges along, exciting and contemporary. They encore with a gleefully chaotic World in Motion and Joy Division's Digital. A chuckling Sumner shares the microphone with his counterpart from 24 Hour Party People, the visibly terrified actor John Simm. Even when confronted with their own mythology, their laconic Mancunian distance remains intact.

    NEW ORDER fans - including movie director SOFIA COPPOLA, the PET SHOP BOYS and PRIMAL SCREAM's BOBBY GILLESPIE - braved the mud to salute their heroes in LONDON's FINSBURY PARK last night (June 9).

    Torrential rain had turned the site into a quagmire by early afternoon, and also caused serious sound problems for support acts Super Furry Animals, Air, Echo And The Bunnymen and The Cooper Temple Clause.

    When New Order did take to the stage, the sun came out for the first time, and the rain held off during their storming set, which included five Joy Division songs. Actors John Simm, who played New Order's Bernard Sumner in the recent Factory Records biopic '24 Hour Party People', came onstage when the band played early Joy Division single 'Digital'.

    Coldplay's Chris Martin had earlier joined Echo And The Bunnymen onstage for a version of their 1997Top Ten hit 'Nothing Lasts Forever'.

    New Order's full set was:

    • 'Crystal'
    • 'Transmission'
    • 'Regret'
    • 'Ceremony'
    • '60 Miles An Hour'
    • 'Atmosphere'
    • 'Brutal'
    • 'Close Range'
    • 'She's Lost Control'
    • 'Bizarre Love Triangle'
    • 'True Faith'
    • 'Temptation'
    • 'Love Will Tear Us Apart'
    •  
    • Encore:
    • 'Digital'
    • 'Blue Monday'
    • 'World In Motion'
    • 'Your Silent Face'

    Report From Kevin: On May 18th (I'm pretty sure about that) Moby hosted a show on MTV where he played some of his videos as well as the "Love Will Tear Us Apart" video that was shot in the empty warehouse.

    He also mentioned on the air that Joy Division was one of the most influential bands on his music as well...

    Not sure if it was just coincidence that it was the anniversary of Ian's death...

    Report From Henry:

    Just a quick note that Regret was used as the musical bridge on May 30, 2002, after a report on the radio program Marketplace in the US. Marketplace is a public radio show broadcast daily and reporting on business matters.

    The story it followed was a "regretful" homage to the family which owns Fiat.

    The following is from Marketplace's web page and the program itself can be played, including the excerpt from Regret:

    Web site: http://marketplace.org/shows/2002/05/30_mpp.html
                                                               
     "Fiat Sells An Italian auto dynasty appears to be coming to an end. The Agnelli family, the longtime owners of the Fiat Auto company, is finally selling the company. Meghan Williams reports from Rome on the psychological and economic effect of this upheaval in the Italian car industry.             
                                                              
    Music Bridge: Regrets - New Order                

    I was informed by the show's director Joe Zefran that Regret has been used on the program several times in the past. He also admitted that he had originally designated the excerpt as Regrets by Duran Duran, but corrected the name of the group (title still wrong). He conceded that his error was "pretty lame."

    In an impressive bid to out-parody even Steve Coogan's best efforts in '24 Hour Party People', Tony Wilson is co-hosting a new Channel 5 (UK) quiz progamme called 'Topranko'. Infamous for it's mix of cheap US imports and 'adult' programming, Channel 5.com has this to say about 'Topranko':

    "Presented by Anthony Wilson and Charlotte Hudson, 5's brand new quickfire quiz features four contestants battling it out for the opportunity to win their dream holiday. Anthony poses the questions and Charlotte provides the answers...while revealing little-known facts about everything under the sun!"

    Report From Shug:
    Hooky interview from NME Live booklet

    Back in the days when New Order were “burying our heads in lager and drugs” as Peter Hook puts it, they had a simple approach to playing live. “We’d go on a world tour and just practice twice!” laughs Hooky. “Barney would say, ‘when I walk in, hand me my guitar, and when I finish the set I’m walking out’” As a result the gigs were raw, almost too raw. “All the pain and anguish and resentment and anger you felt was reflected in the way you played. It’s a helluva lot more joyous now.”


    The secret is playing sober and getting “smashed” afterwards – a pattern they’ll be sticking to for their show at Finsbury Park on June 9 with Air and Super Furry Animals. The freshly “social” New Order are so well adjusted they’ve even been delving deep into the Joy Division back catalogue. “They’re good songs, and I’m sure that Ian, God bless his soul, is delighted we’re playing them again” says Hooky, “after watching 24hr party people we’d definitely like to do ‘She’s Lost Control’”. Have they thought of getting their onscreen doubles to play the first song? “No. The strange thing is that Barney keeps threatening it. ‘Get John Simm to go on tour with you then’ And we all go, ‘we’d fuckin love ‘im instead of you, yer miserable bastard’ But unfortunately John’s got other commitments. I was trying to get Alex James and Mani to play bass for a couple, in the hope I could get up with Primal Scream and Blur.”
    Joyous isn’t the half of it.

    New Order 'World In Motion' single, re-released Monday 3rd June

    New Order re-release their chart topping No. 1 1990 World Cup classic 'World In Motion', a revolutionary track in the history of football records. The CD single includes a brand new track 'Such A Good Thing.' Written by New Order and produced by the band and legendary collaborator Steve Osborne, the previously unreleased 'Such A Good Thing' has been declared the BBC Radio Five Live World Cup theme tune for all their coverage of this summer's key sporting event.

    New Order are playing two massive UK headline shows this summer. Catch them in action at Finbsury Park (9th June) and at Manchester's Old Trafford Cricket Ground (13th July).

    Report from NME.com:
    NEW ORDER have confirmed they are to re-issue their classic ‘WORLD IN MOTION’ single for the World Cup.

    The song will be released on June 3 via London. The release will be backed by 'Such A Good Thing' and 'World In Motion (No Alla Violenza mix)' across the formats.

    Bassist Peter Hook had previously said he wanted the re-release to feature David Beckham doing the rap famously provided by John Barnes.

    The original was the official World Cup song in 1990, and became a Number One hit. Speaking about a re-release in time for this year's tournament in Japan and Korea, Hooky said: "Fucking right I’d be up for that, I mean he’s god isn’t he, Beckham. I’ve never seen a man deliver so much and remain human. I do hope it happens, it’d be great."
     

    NEW ORDER are planning to release a Box Set later this year.

    The group, who are to headline a show at London's Finsbury Park next month (June 9), are planning to enter the studio later this year to work on the follow-up to last year's 'Get Ready' album.

    NME.COM has learned that the retrospective set could be released in time for Christmas, but certainly before their new album in 2003.

    A spokesperson for the band told NME.COM there are ideas being discussed with the record label, but there are no confirmed release plans as yet.

    My experience backstage with New Order Zenith, Paris May 26, 2002

    Click photo for full size

    Hooky family- Phil C. - Sarge

    Before sharing my experience with you, I would like to thank New Order management for allowing me to have the opportunity to meet the band again backstage and give me authorization to take pictures during the show. Most important, I would to thanks Peter Hook and his family for allowing me to be around them before, during and after the show. Naturally I like to thanks also Steven, Barney, Phil and Sarge.

    I arrived at the Zenith by 7:00PM, being on the band guest list by the management, I got a pass to be able to take pictures during the show. Before the show started, I waited backstage for New Order to finally arrived (They did a soundcheck from 3 to 5 PM earlier).

    Hooky family- Phil C. - Rebecca

    First one to arrived was Barney with Alan Wise and Sarge (New Order bodyguard), then Steven Morris and finally Peter Hook with his family ( Rebecca his wife, Heather (16 years old), Jack (12 years old) and the cute little one,  Jess (3 years old). Phil Cunningham was around at the same time. They all went to their own dressing room. Barney and Steven were sharing one, Hooky and his family another one upstairs with Cunningham. It was two actually, one to change, one to relax.

    Hooky family

    I was still downstairs already pleased to be backstage when Hooky proposed me to come up to have a drink. I end up upstairs with Hookys family and got the change to meet finally Heater, Jack and Jess. Hooky proposed to take some picture with everyone (The whole family, Sarge, Phil C., Alan Wise). After having a very nice time with everyone, Hooky managed to get me an all access pass.

    Funny things is that Heater knew very well my website and was visiting it very often. Looks like she is the internet queen in the house.

    Hooky family

    The Doves were the opening act and New Order was due by 9:30PM. I went back to the front of the stage waiting for the band to arrived. As usual Alan Wise introduced the band before getting on stage. I was the only one with another woman to get authorization to take pictures. The atmosphere was great, the audience was very responsive. Hooky dedicated "Regret" to me (what an honor).

    After the first 3 songs, I went back backstage to join New Order entourage. I was able to take pictures few feet away from Hooky while he was playing. Heater and Jack had a great time on stage very close to their dad.

    New Order played for almost 105 mins, 2 encores. The show was awesome, full of energy, the band was enjoying themselves very much.

    Alan Wise and Phil C. Guest

    After the show the band got back to one dressing room with Sarge at the doors to make sure no uninvited people have access. I was relaxing outside when Hooky open the door and invited me inside the dressing room.

    I had a pleasant chat with Bernard (Barney) Sumner backstage. He did confirm the release of a New Order box set by Christmas 2002. He was concern about my point of you as a fan, he gave me a napkin and a pen to write what I wanted as a fan. I thought getting input for other fans was much better, I proposed him to get some feedback from other fans via my website and I will be in touch very soon...He mentioned that things needed to be done very soon, take times to get a box set together.

    After a little while time was for everyone to go. I did thanks Hooky again and hopefully will see them again in London in June.

    Thanks again to New Order and the Management

    Good track, it has a rhythm & bass line similar to "someone like you" but a totally different song on top of that.

    The other tracks are the same as the on the old "world in motion" release. the "no alla violenza mix" is 5:23 long on this release.

    Ex-FACTORY RECORDS boss TONY WILSON is to return to his old job as a presenter on GRANADA NEWS.

    Wilson started his journalistic career in the 70s as a presenter for the station, before quitting after the success of his Factory Records label which spawned bands including Happy Mondays, Joy Division and their successors New Order.

    However, Wilson, whose life story was played by comedian Steve Coogan in the recent Michael Winterbottom film '24 Hour Party People', is to co-host the station's 6pm evening news, according to Mediaguardian.

    He commented: "I feel like I've never really gone away...Being asked to present the show again was a bit like the chance conversation that brought Eric Cantona from Leeds to Man U, and for me, just as wonderful".

    IAN CURTIS 1956 - 1980

     
    Ian Curtis - Gone but not forgotten

    It was 22 years ago today that IAN CURTIS ended his life, aged 23.

    The driving force behind Joy Division's dark vision, he hanged himself in his Macclesfield home as the band rested between a European and American tour. Iggy Pop's 'The Idiot' was found on his turntable alongside a note which read "at this very moment, I wish I were dead. I just can't cope anymore".

     
    For those who never been to Macclesfield, UK to visit Ian Curtis grave. Some pictures taken by Craig Barcelo with a story behind it:

    "It was a gray overcast day, perfect for the kind of sight seeing we were doing. Also the village of Macclesfield is VERY SMALL, everybody obviously knows each other. The grounds keeper at the crematorium was giving me a hard time. he said something like (in a very thick Scottish brogue) "His parents still come here every now and then and take away all the crap that the fans leave behind". From what I gathered from the director of the place, Ian's grave is a very popular tourist sight for fans all over the world.

    Interview from TOTP:

    Bernard SumnerDance-pop veterans New Order made a flying visit to the Pops studio recently, and we managed to collar singer Bernard and drummer Steve for a quick natter...
     

    TOTP: Are you relieved that your comeback album 'Crystal' has been such a success?
    Bernard: It can be good, it can be bad. The more success you have, the more you have to do. It meant we had to go out touring, we've just been to Australia, New Zealand, we did a tour of England, a tour of Europe...
    Steve: So it's better if people don't buy the record so we don't have to do all this work.
    Bernard: Yeah, if it bombs, that's much better!

    TOTP: Steve, tell us about your recent major life-change...
    Steve: I've joined the Temperance League, which involves a total abstention from alcohol...
    Bernard: [Interrupting] We're here at TOTP tonight, and unfortunately because Steve doesn't believe in drinking any more, he thinks that that should apply to everybody else. [Points to Star Bar] As you can see, the bar over there is actually closed as a mark of respect.

    TOTP: How did your latest single 'Here To Stay' come about?
    Bernard: It's a track that we did with the Chemical Brothers for our album. We couldn't get the mix right so we didn't put it on the album. And then the film 24 Hour Party People came along, which is about the history of Factory records. It's really the story of the legendary Tony Wilson - the chubby self publicist - who's played by Steve Coogan - a chubby comedian. They were looking for a track to use in the film, so it seemed like the perfect song. We still had to get the mix right, so we went back into the studio with the Chemical Brothers and told them how to do it. We got it right this time.

    TOTP: And you're characters in the film, that means you're proper living legends now...
    Bernard: Well we are. I'm a living legend, Steve's not quite made it yet.
    Steve: I'm certainly not a legend.

    TOTP: Did you like the film?
    Steve: I've seen it three times. Most people should go and see it three times. I confess by the third time I was a bit puzzled.
    Bernard: I've only seen it once, and I saw a pre-cut of the film, which I thought was a little bit long. When you first see it, and you see a story that you've seen first hand it's a bit disorientating, seeing someone play you. I was gobsmacked when I left the film theatre. It's very weird.
    Steve: People kept coming up to you, thinking you were John Simms...
    Bernard: Every scene that you watch you think 'It's not quite right' , but I think the film's pretty good, in the end. It's a funny film, which I'm glad about. I lot of people take us very, very seriously, and we're not like that as people.

    TOTP:Was there stuff you'd like to have seen in there that was left out?
    Steve: Yeah, loads of things. We could make another film with the bits they left out...
    Bernard: [evil grin] Actually, there was a little scene about you, Steve. It was in Joy Division when you had a cold and your mum wouldn't let you bring your drumkit to rehearsals...
    Steve: That's right [mum voice] "It's a sin. Drumming is a sin."
    Bernard: He had to climb out of his bedroom window. He turned up to rehearsals with Ian Curtis - our singer - without a drum kit. You borrowed our roadie's drum kit...
    Steve: Which was stuffed with newspapers to muffle the sound...
    Bernard: Because his mum didn't like him playing the drums in the house.
    Steve: Mums don't like you playing the drums in the house. I argued for that to be in the film!

    RAM


    "Bristling free-flowing melody in the finest of eccentric british pop traditions" ~ "ONE TO WATCH"
    "F***in' hell ! I'm 'avin' this! ~ Noel Gallagher
    'RAM have ample glowing song craft of their own to make MONACO a hazy memory at the very least' ~ City Life

    These reactions aren't surprising, as this new band from Manchester definitely has the knack for writing tunes that get under your skin. No stranger to musical accomplishment, singer DAVID POTTS has already achieved over Half a million record sales including the top ten MONACO hit, "What Do You want From Me?".
     
    But RAM's new demos also have huge commercial potential. With influences from Bowie to Blur and Tim Hardin to The Jam, Potts has now moved away from the Monaco sound and created energising, original music that appears at once, classic and startlingly new to ears.
     
    Potts's song writing has always been prolific, yet never more so than now.

    I was watching TV the other day and saw a commercial for the Eco Challenge that had the song, "Regret" playing in the background. One last thing, VH1 had the 100 best dance songs ever made, but N.O. was never mentioned.  They had "disco" bands make it.  I thought N.O. made it "cool" to put out a "dance song" in the 80's.

    24 Hour Party People Apr 5 2002


    Starring:Steve Coogan, Lennie James, Paddy Considine, Sean Harris, Danny Cunningham

    Director:Michael Winterbottom

    Screen Writer:Frank Cottrell Boyce

    Details:115 mins Cert 18 (Pathe)

    Manchester '76 - '92. The time of Tony Wilson, Factory Records and The Hacienda. The time of Joy Division, New Order and the Happy Mondays.
    The time of music, drugs and the birth of the rave scene. All wrapped up in a dictionary's worth of 'isms' - idealism, hedonism, postmodernism.
     

    FULL REVIEW
    Granada TV presenter Tony Wilson is standing on a hill outside Manchester. Attached to a hang-glider, he throws himself off, kamikaze-style. After a brief adrenalin rush and some genuinely dangerous moments, he crashes to the ground. "It's symbolic - it works on two levels," thinks the perceptive viewer, drawing parallels between this and the history of Wilson's music label, Factory Records.


    "It's symbolic - it works on two levels," says Steve Coogan, playing Wilson, talking directly to camera and stealing the audience's clever-clever thunder.


    Barely two minutes into the movie, and director Michael Winterbottom has made a clean break from any by-the-rules 'biopic' approach to either Wilson, Factory or the whole Manchester scene from the late '70s to the early '90s. In one quick, self-referential move, he grants himself the freedom to mould the whole unruly subject into whatever shape he wants.


    The finished result leans a bit too much towards the Tony Wilson/Steve Coogan Show to really do justice to such a vibrant era; at times, particularly when the floppy-lapelled TV presenter is up there in grainy glory, it's like Eric Idle playing Steve Coogan playing Alan Partridge playing Tony Wilson. But there's no doubt that this is a brave and brilliant movie that bristles with energy and attitude.


    The tone shifts as the spotlight moves from Joy Division to the Happy Mondays. The first half of the film is as intense and passionate as a night in with Ian Curtis; the second is as shambolic and fun as a night out with Shaun Ryder.


    If the film loses its focus in the later stages, it's because Winterbottom wants it to do so. Style reflects content as the director maintains a chaotic feel that is the Factory spirit in its most essential form.


    It's idealism and anarchy in a head-on collision; it's symbolic and it works on two levels. And, as the Mondays might say, Hallelujah to that.

    ANY GOOD?
    Winterbottom and writer Frank Cottrell Boyce knowingly play fast and loose with the truth, preferring to "print the legend". Manchester musos will fume at the absences and the outright lies, but that's just fuel to the film's fire.

    Report from Shug S.:

    Peter Hook Interview from Channel 4 Teletext.

    Here to Stay - a proper title or is this a one off return for New Order?

    We liked the sentiment of the title, it's true. The single's a slight cheat, as we worked on it with The Chemical Brothers before they did their album.

    What were The Chemical Brothers like to work with?

    It's funny as we've known them for years, then once we were in the studios with them, they suddenly got overawed, "I can't believe we're in the studio with New Order" but once we calmed them down it was a good relaxed atmosphere

    How's the atmosphere amongst the band?

    Honestly, it's the best it's ever been. We start work on a new album in September. It's the first time I can remember when we won't be worrying if we're going to get on with one another.

    Are you worried that a creative tension will be missing?

    I was worried about that before Get Ready. Me and Bernard had become good friends again, but I was thinking it would all go wrong once we started working again, the reverse was true.

    Was a New Order reunion inevitable?

    Tony Wilson thought so, when he heard we were doing Get Ready he said "All bands make at least one bad album, New Order haven't, so you had to get back together to make your bad album" Get Ready wasn't - so up yours Wilson!

    How accurate a depiction of Factory is the 24 Hour Party People movie?

    New Order split because we tore each other apart over Factory's money problems, you always take it out on your nearest and dearest. So to see a film joking about how every copy of Blue Monday lost 5p it's funny to the outside, but had me thinking 'OK I know, I know….'  It's a good film - Sean Harris as Ian Curtis is excellent, the scenes where we realise he's epileptic are very harrowing.

    You've had run-ins with Steve Coogan - How good is he as Tony Wilson?

    For the first half hour of the film - I couldn't get over thinking - it's that idiot Coogan. To give him credit he plays Tony very well - when he's got the sunglasses on - He IS Tony Wilson!

    What about Ralf Little playing you?

    Yeah, he's fine. I wish Ralf would stop running away whenever we're at the same parties though. Don't worry Ralf you did a good job. I howl with laughter when I see him scurry off!

    As New Order are getting on so well, do you regret splitting up for 8 years?

    We'd got so caught up with Factory's nonsense at the time, we couldn't bear to be in the same room. We had to go away and do our own thing first.

    What did you learn from your bands?

    How difficult Bernard's job is! Before I'd be a pain in the backside if he was having trouble with a lyric or a vocal..'stop moaning' was about as helpful as I got. When I had to do lyrics and sing in Monaco I quickly thought 'help'

    How different is life on London Records compared to Factory?

    After 25 years it's nice to finally be a little professional isn't it? The difference between Pete Tong and Tony Wilson as label bossess is that there's a lot less shouting matches now!

    The futures looking rosy then?

    Yes, but the beauty of being in New Order is that we might get bored with all this professionalism. There is every chance we'll start our own label in a year to sell records at car boot sales!

    Report from NME:
    IAN BROWN, TRAVIS, PET SHOP BOYS and TONY WILSON were amongst the stars who joined cast members at the LONDON premiere of '24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE' last night (March 26).

    The first public screening of the film, based on the story of the rise and fall of Wilson's Factory Records empire and the Manchester music scene of the early 90s, took place at the Soho Curzon in central London.

    Actor Steve Coogan, who plays Wilson in the film was the star of the premiere, which was also attended by Placebo singer Brian Molko, New Order bassist Peter Hook, comedian Johnny Vegas, Toploader's Dan Hipgrave and ex-James singer Tim Booth.

    Following the premiere, a party was held in the London Astoria, which was decorated in a Hacienda style. Amongst the guests at the party were Chrissie Hynde, Howard Marks and former Stone Roses vocalist Ian Brown.

    Speaking exclusively to NME.COM after the film, Ian Brown said his reservations about the making of '24 Hour Party People' dissipated after seeing it.

    He said: "When I first found out they were making it I thought it was bullshit because I'm not into nostalgia but now I've seen it I'm made up that they made it. It's really good. It was brilliant. I like Joy Division, I saw them when I was a kid."

    The film opens nationwide on April 5.

    Report from www.burnitblue.com:
    New Order and Keith Allen are planning to remix their 1990 World Cup anthem ‘World In Motion’ with David Beckham rapping on the track. 
     
    Speaking to BurnitBlue earlier today (March 26), New Order bassist Peter Hook said that he’d love to record a World Cup track for this summer’s tournament in Japan and Korea, and that Keith Allen was keen to remix ‘World In Motion’ with the England captain doing the rapping. 
     
    Hooky said: "Keith Allen’s got a bee in his bonnet about getting Beckham to do the rap on ‘World In Motion’ and doing the remix. Fucking right I’d be up for that, I mean he’s god isn’t he, Beckham. I’ve never seen a man deliver so much and remain human. Keith’s still working on it, so I’m looking forward to that. I do hope it happens, it’d be great.”  
     
    A spokesperson for David Beckham, however, claimed not to have been approached about the project. 
     
    “We’ve not heard about it through this office, and it would have come through us,” he said. 
     
    ‘World In Motion’ was originally recording for the Italia ’90 World Cup, and featured the rapping talents of England midfielder John Barnes. It reached No.1 in the UK charts.

    The pair are hoping to release a new version of 'World In Motion' to coincide with England's involvement in the World Cup in Japan and Korea. The original version saw one-time Liverpool midfielder John Barnes carry the rap.

    The England captain has yet to approached about the project.

    "Keith Allen's got a bee in his bonnet about getting Beckham to do the rap on 'World In Motion" and doing the remix," Hook told BurnItBlue.com.

    Peter Hook slates Radio One playlist

    Peter Hook is delighted the latest New Order single hasn't made the Radio One playlist.

    He says it's a compliment because he doesn't rate the playlist.

    New Order's forthcoming single Here To Stay was produced by The Chemical Brothers and is released on April 15.

    Hook told the BBC's Liquid News programme: "I can sit and say we didn't get on it this time and I'm delighted about it. I think it's a compliment in many ways to not get on it because to be honest with you I think Radio 1's playlist is pretty crap.

    "The thing that really galls you about it, is when people stop it getting to people who make up their own minds. What's happened is Radio 1 make up their own minds - not just about us - the Chemical Brothers couldn't get on there.

    "There are millions of people who don't get on Radio 1 playlists which to me is censorship and that's what we were all against and we're still against it now."

    CP Lee introduces a five week course, which examines Manchester’s relationship to music, film and television, tracing the development of Popular Music in the city from the immediate post-war period to the present day and its representation on the screen.

    So it Goes (CTBA), Wed 24 Apr

    Granada TV's So It Goes was the music show to watch in 1976/77 if you were interested in new bands. The programme, hosted by Tony Wilson, has gone down in history as a talent spotting mecca. This is a rare opportunity to see episodes of the show.

    Report from Patrick E.:
    Last night (March 21) Swedish Television showed a 30 minutes long New Order Special featuring interviews with Stephen Morris, Peter Hook and Bernard Sumner.

    The interview was very relaxed and they showed 11 videos: Confusion, Shellshock, True Faith, Fine Time, Tour De France (Kraftwerk), Blue Monday, Perfect Kiss, Regret, World, Crystal and 60 Miles an Hour...

    Bernard said one thing wrong, that their latest album was called "Raise the Pressure"...
     
    A Little Message from our Winner Tim Walker regarding our latest OBJECT Contest:
    Here's a piccie of my four-year-old daughter Amber wearing the "Baby Doll" T-shirt that was one of the shirts I won in your most excellent contest. She loves the shirt, and of course she now thinks New Order is the greatest band in the world.

    Here's to the next generation of fans!

    Report from Nick K.:

    There's an interview with Hooky in this week's '7 Magazine' (Issue 141, has a cover of a superhero dressed in red with 'Vive La France' on his chest).

    In it, he mentions topics such as the upcoming film, Get Ready, Joy Division, The Smiths (some interesting quotes here), as well as interesting tidbits about the upcoming Finsbury Park gig and also new material:

    So what's the massive Finsbury Park gig about?
    "A Manchester extravaganza. It's the only gig we're doing in England this year and the idea is to get all the Manchester bands on with us that we think are current. We've got up and coming Manchester bands like Hanky Park and older bands like The Doves and are trying to get Badly Drawn Boy aboard."

    Are you working on new New Order material?
    "We'll be starting work on some new stuff. Like the track we've just done with The Chemical Brothers says, we're 'Here To Stay'."

    And how did you make that track with the Chemicals?
    "New Order wrote a backing track which was very acoustic and The Chemicals took it away and made it dancier. It was nice and easy to work with them although I don't think the bass is loud enough on the record - some things never change."

    He also expresses an interest in Curtis Mayfield - listens to Curtis and the Gamma Rays whilst decorating the place!

    Report from NME:

    '24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE', the movie based on the story of FACTORY RECORDS and the HACIENDA nightclub, was given its first screening in its native MANCHESTER last night (February 13).

    Although it was not an official premier of the Michael Winterbottom-directed film, many of those involved in the production - including Factory boss Tony Wilson and New Order bassist Peter Hook - were present.

    Hook, depicted on screen by actor Ralf Little, told NME.COM: "I enjoyed it, but it's really weird, it's like having somebody read your diaries really. It's still very poignant. The Joy Division thing is very upsetting, even though I've seen it twice now. But it's interesting, it's got a lot of things wrong, but it makes it more of a comic book story."

    He continued, "We wanted the music to stand up not the personalities, and I think it still does. Every Joy Division track, every New Order track sounds fantastic."

    New Order also contribute a track to the '24 Hour Party People' soundtrack. 'Here To Stay', a collaboration with the Chemical Brothers, is to appear on the closing credits - however, it was missing last night because the band missed their deadline.

    "We finished it today, which is fucking typical," joked Hook, "We missed our own fucking thing. But we finished it today at Bernard (Sumner)'s house, so it'll be on it next time."

    Reactions to the film, which last year saw a mock-Hacienda constructed for one night only, were positive. However, many noted the similarities between Steve Coogan's portrayal of Wilson and his character Alan Partridge, and noted the film's revisionist approach to the Factory story.

    '24 Hour Party People' is due for release on April 5, with the soundtrack available via London Records on April 1.

    Report from 24 Hours Party People Website:

    The movie is set for release on April 5 in the United Kingdom.

    The tracklist for the soundtrack is still to be confirmed, but will definitely feature a brand new New Order track, 'Here to Stay', which has been produced by the Chemical Brothers. The soundtrack will be released on March 1.

    'Here to Stay' will be released as a single on March 25. The video for this single will be shot in mid-February in London and will feature John Simm, who plays Bernard Sumner in the movie.

    A word from the Producer (Andrew Eaton):

    So here we are. We have nearly finished the film. Michael made some late final changes yesterday before last night's screening for the long-lead press. When he saw the first combined print at the lab earlier in the week he felt there were a few things he wanted to adjust. So then we had a mad panic to cut the print on a steenbeck before the screening at the Curzon Soho at 9pm. The screening was fantastic. The atmosphere beforehand was brilliant - lots of anticipation and the audience felt like they were completely in the story from the very beginning. The reactions we have been getting this morning (Friday) have been very positive. We still have to add on the new New Order/Chemical Brothers remix on the end titles, but apart from that the film is pretty much done. At last. More news soon.

    Quick point of note: the same 'team' who do New Order live also work for the Chemical Bros, so when the Chemicals play live this year, you won't be seeing New Order!

    Report and Pictures from David Bricknell:

               

    For anyone living in Melbourne who calls themselves a New Order fan, last week was the time to forget summer holidays at the beach and head into the centre of the city (where all roads meet).  First off the band blew everyone else off the stage at the Big Day Out (including Garbage and Prodigy). This appearance was the first in Melbourne since '87 when they played in 42 degree heat on consecutive nights at The Venue and Festival Hall. Prior to that we had '82 and '84 (when at midnight mid-set the anniversary of Ian Curtis' death clocked over and the band launched into "Love Will Tear Us Apart" as an unforgettable tribute).

    Fast forward to 30th January 2002 and there's a queue right around the block, snaking it's way up Bourke St from Gaslight Records where the band are doing an in store signing before their sound check across the road at The Metro nightclub. Access to the signing is granted only upon presentation of a pass provided when either the Australian Exclusive 5 track EP of 60 Miles An Hour or Get Ready is purchased earlier.

    The band are running half an hour late we are told while waiting in the queue. The two guys in front of me have traveled a couple of thousand kilometers from Perth just to see New Order in a nightclub environment before the Perth leg of the BDO. We agree that we'll probably only get a couple of seconds with the band which is cool (we figure it's best to avoid one of those Wayne & Garth meet Alice Cooper "We're not worthy" type moments).

    Anyway, before we know it the queue's moving and we're in. The guys look tanned which could explain the late arrival (they had a couple of days off in Melbourne between gigs). EP's are signed, greetings exchanged and we're out so the hundreds still behind us aren't left out.  I sneak back in when security is distracted and grab the attached photos.

    That night we're treated to Arthur Baker spinning some discs at The Metro before New Order appear. Radical versions of Confusion and Blue Monday precede a spaced out , cutting edge reworking of Good Vibrations. Did I ever think I'd be at a New Order gig singing along with several thousand other punters to The Beach Boys?  No.

    Anticipation runs high. The time draws near. The crowd is suitably revved by Arthur. On comes the promoter who begins "Did anyone catch New Order at the Big Day Out on Monday?  90% of the crowd go wild. "Was that the greatest gig you've ever seen?'  100% of the crowd go wild. Introductions finish. Lights out. Deafening screams all round and there's the band, back
    after almost 15 years.

    Bernard introduces the band individually and launches into Crystal. Between some pretty funny comments from Bernard and his now infamous but infectious dancing and Hooky's "getting oh so close to Gene Simmons" posturing we get the following set:  Transmission, 60 Miles An Hour, Regret, Ceremony, Slow Jam, Close Range, Touched By The Hand Of God, Bizarre Love Triangle, True Faith, Atmosphere, Temptation, Love Will tear Us Apart and an encore of Isolation and Blue Monday.

    I won't go overboard - it was fucking brilliant.  Enough said.

    New Order Live : Sydney Hordern Pavilion (January 23rd, 2002)

    Not new but still in working Order

    NEW ORDER
    Hordern Pavilion
    January 23

    Reviewed by Jon Casimir

    The handful of shows New Order played in Sydney in the 1980s were truly hit and miss. The songs were not the problem. Sometimes the musicians had, em, more than petrol in their tanks.

    Sometimes they forgot how to play what they'd chosen, which can be an occupational hazard when the set list changes every night.

    And sometimes, their reliance on gremlin-ridden, pioneering technology defeated them. One memorable night at the Dee Why Hotel was so ceiling-dripping humid that the machines pretty much refused to come out of the dressing room, leaving the band to make their excuses.

    When they got it right, New Order were sublime, a genuinely exciting and innovative blend of trad rock and dance-floor electronics, one of those pop experiences that made you feel you were in the right place at the right time.

    Fifteen years on, everything and nothing has changed. It's a perverse pleasure to report that New Order have not morphed into the edgeless tribute act most reunion bands seem to become. Slick professionalism continues to hover just out of their reach, if it's on their agenda at all.

    What's important is that New Order 2002 still look and feel like a band rather than an accountancy project.

    On a stage dominated by a lightshow pointing at the audience rather than the musicians, brilliantly propulsive drummer Steve Morris went quietly about his business at the back, singer/guitarist Bernard Sumner jigged and yelped excitedly and bass player Peter Hook was as comically exaggerated as ever - his bass slung unfeasibly low, he looks part Quasimodo and part someone who has lost a contact lens and is hoping to spot it before the song finishes.

    They still haven't worked out how to structure a list so that the show won't go flat in places.

    They're still fighting the equipment - Sumner had problems with the stage sound and was occasionally to be found singing, rather hopefully, in keys known only to himself. And they still have a tendency towards raggedness. The four tracks from the excellent new album, Get Ready, were more blustery than necessary.

    But to balance this, they have charm, personality and an unflagging commitment to the songs, a seam they mined as far back as 1979, digging out four Joy Division tunes.

    They made more than good fists of Transmission and
    Love Will Tear Us Apart
    , and turned Isolation into dance-floor pop.

    Only Atmosphere lacked its recorded majesty, sped up and strangely neutered.

    Bizarre Love Triangle was as messy as True Faith was disciplined. Ceremony bristled with power and Your Silent Face was all elegant restraint (the melodica is such a rockin' instrument). Rock the Shack swung its hips and Blue Monday finally got the rather polite full house on its feet.

    Report from Undercover (http://www.undercover.com.au ) (info sent by Marc J.):

    Movies featuring New Order are the new order for New Order

    The lives of the members of New Order are to feature in a couple of movies on the way. One deals with their label, Factory Records and it's demise and the other looks into the life of Joy Division singer, the late Ian Curtis.

    New Order frontman Bernard Sumner told Undercover News that the first movie is called '24 Hour Party People' "It is not a big budget movie. It is primarily the story of Factory Records. The central character is Tony Wilson, the Factory Records boss. He is played by Steve Cooglan who is a comedian in England. An English actor called John Sim plays me, but I'm not a central character. I'm just part of the whole thing".

    24 Hour Party People revolves around the business dealings of Tony Wilson and New Order and the club they jointly owned called The Hacienda Club. "We had a lot of business problems" Bernard said. "Factory Record was going under. At The Hacienda nightclub we had a lot of problems dealing with gang related violence. Having to deal with all of that was a pain in the arse, as you can imagine".

    Bernard recalls that business and music were often at loggerheads with each other. "I remember when we recording the record we'd get called out into a meeting to discuss if we were going to sell cheeseburgers at The Hacienda and if we could afford a metal detector and bulletproof vests for the bouncers".

    The other movie is in the early stages and is about the lead singer of Joy Division Ian Curtis, who committed suicide in 1980. "It is based on his wife's book called "Touching From A Distance". I've been talking to a script writer in Los Angeles about Ian and making that film" says Bernard.

    '24 Hour Party People' has its premiere in England in April.

    ------------------------------------------------------
    Ian Curtis Biopic a Go
     
    The movie rights to Touching From a Distance, a biography about the life and suicide of Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis have been sold to Double A Films, a New York-based production company. The film -- titled
    Transmission and based on the 1995 book penned by Curtis' widow Deborah -- is being penned by writer/director Michael Stock. Filming is tentatively planned to begin by late fall.
    "I've always loved Joy Division," says producer Amy Hobby. "When Michael Stock, a young writer/director and music fanatic came to me and suggested the project, I said, 'That sounds fantastic. What can I read?' And he gave me the book that Deborah wrote. And after reading it, I thought we should try to get the rights to the biography."

    In May of 1980, on the eve of his band's first-ever U.S. tour, the enigmatic Ian Curtis -- suffering from depression and epilepsy -- hanged himself. At the time of his death the singer-songwriter was said to be in a love triangle with his wife and a mistress. "I think Ian was sort of like all those characters like James Dean, who live fast and die young," opines Hobby. "They leave something behind that we can't forget. Ian was really unique in that he was epileptic, believed he was getting these transmissions from God, and had something to say at a young age.

    "Without ruining the integrity of the project, I'd like to see it in wide release," adds Hobby. "I think it deserves more than just a select audience. I can't comment on actors and actresses that have expressed interest yet, but I'm certain that we'll need to search long and hard -- worldwide -- to find the right male lead for Ian's character."

    Hobby also says that Curtis' widow will stay on with the project as an associate producer. "Both Michael Stock and I met with her in Manchester over Christmas, and talked to her about the film. And she's been integral in shedding further light on Ian and his life during our script research, and she'll be with us all the way."

    Report from Undercover (http://www.undercover.com.au):

    New Order are the stars of The Big Day Out

    Without a doubt, New Order have proven to be the festival highlight this year performing their first shows on Australian turf in 17 years. The gap since their last visit has meant that they are playing live their old Joy Division for the very first time in the country.

    New Order's Bernard Sumner told Undercover News that because of the time since Ian Curtis died, performing the songs are no longer as personal as they once were. Sumner said that the inclusion of JD songs in the NO set means that the songs won't die with Ian. "They are great songs and should be heard" he said. New Order featured Transmission and Love Will Tear Us Apart in the Big Day Out set but also played "Atmosphere" during their sideshow in Melbourne last night.

    Review from The Age (info sent by Marc J.):

    New Order Live : The Metro (January 30th, 2002)
     

    After what can only be described by fans as a cruel wait of nearly 15 years, New Order gave a stellar performance during their recent Australian tour that almost compensated for their long absence from Australia.

    From the opening chords, Bernard Sumner’s boyish earnestness indicated that he was prepared to inject as much force into his performance as he possibly could. Driven by Peter Hook and Sumner’s guitars, the band possessed a consistent energy that contrasted sharply with their lacklustre performance at the Melbourne Big Day Out. Whereas Sumner complained of the sun in his eyes and of playing in daylight at the BDO, this time there was nothing but praise for the atmosphere and audience. From the outset the band displayed a genuine desire to please and this contagious enthusiasm infected the crowd, resulting in a vibe of mutual admiration—quite different from the de rigueur posturing of other bands, such as The White Stripes, whose ambivalence can often leave the crowd dulled.

    Bernard Sumner’s slightly podgy form, coupled with his exuberant dancing (which consisted of repeatedly kicking one leg out behind him) actually worked. Anyone else simply would have looked liked a dork. It was Peter Hook, however, who became the star of the show, slinging his guitar down to his feet and showing off his signature bass lines to the appreciation of the hand-waving crowd.

    Crystal was the opening track and a wise choice it was, given that the catchy chorus has had a lot of airplay recently. But any concerns that the band would focus on their new stuff were quickly dispelled, as classic after classic were offered, such as Regret, True Faith, Touched by the Hand of God and Temptation, which had everyone singing along, especially to: ‘Oh you’ve got blue eyes, oh you’ve got green eyes, oh you’ve got grey eyes.’ The obligatory Bizarre Love Triangle was also played, in addition to the Joy Division songs Atmosphere and Love Will Tear Us Apart, both of which drew tangible appreciation from the crowd.

    New Order were on a roll and they knew it; the crowd were their friends and they were going to reward them; an encore was a given. The strange choice of Isolation for the first track of the encore was offset by the oh-so-right choice of playing Blue Monday.

    It’s hard not to be satisfied by a band that has the right attitude, shows forethought in their playlist and whose performance is masterly and polished, yet still exudes the requisite potency.

    Bernard Sumner was right when he commented in his almost unintelligible Manchester accent that we were getting value for our money. No complaints here.

    NEW ORDER AND THE CHEMICALS PROVIDE 'PARTY' SOUNDTRACK!

    A recently recorded collaboration between NEW ORDER and the THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS, 'HERE TO STAY', will be released as the next NEW ORDER single later this spring.

    The track will also be part of the soundtrack to '24 Hour Party People', the film that charts the rise and fall of Manchester's legendary Hacienda, and all the players who were part of it - including New Order and Happy Mondays. The film stars Steve Coogan as Factory Records boss Anthony Wilson, John Simm as New Order frontman Barney Sumner and Ralph Little as bassist Peter Hook.

    'Here To Stay' is set for release at the end of March/early April, depending on when the rest of the film soundtrack is finalised. It is also rumoured to include previously unreleased 'Player In The League', a track that appeared on the pre-release versions of last year's comeback album'Get Ready' but was kicked off the version that went on general sale.

    Review from NME (info sent by Marc J.):

    New Order Live : Sydney Hordern Pavilion (January 23rd, 2002)

    Twenty-five years on, and Bernard Sumner still can't dance. As he hugs his guitar through '60 Miles An Hour', it's like watching your dad attempting to march like Ian Brown and scissor kick like Fran Healy, all in one. And there in lies the essence of New Order 2002 - finally getting to play out all those years they've forgotten due to height of Hacienda excesses.

    They're 22-year old kids trapped in the bodies of men twice their age, belting out early 80's electronica and 'Substance'-era bass-lines like The Strokes never happened.

    You can see the juxtaposition in the crowd, too. Mums and Dads who haven't been out since the band last touched down in Australia over a decade ago check their watches nervously, whispering to each other that it's late and the babysitter's only booked 'til half ten. English backpackers chant that Hooky's a fat twat and cheer at the fact that 'Salford Rules!' is written in duct tape on the amps. Fidgety Goths roam in packs looking out for other similarly tortured youths in black. And the rest are under 25's in trainers, coming to see that nice young lad from the 'Crystal' video clip. If anyone's looking for across the board appeal, here seems a very good place to start.

    They do the same set they've been playing since they decided upon this reforming palaver, of course, but that matters little to those hanging off the coat tails of nostalgia. The danger passes after 'Crystal' that this evening will lean heavily on the success of 'Get Ready', and instead dissolves quickly into a greatest hits trip down memory lane. They play 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' and the Goths are actually smiling. No doubt Robert Smith is still cursing the day he forgot to write 'Your Silent Face', and the brilliant electro ambience of 'Atmosphere' proves that Peter Hook is the original Bass God.

    But lessons learnt from past mistakes are easily forgotten. The drums are still a few beats behind when it comes to the chorus of 'Transmission', and Sumner attacks the last few versus of 'Close Range' with all the vigour of a man who's just come in from a ten mile run ("Are you ready to chill out?" he puffs at one stage. "I tell you what, I am.") . Still, 'Temptation' is faultless and 'Blue Monday' is still as relevant today as it was in 1987.

    Unlike Bernard's dancing... but you can't win them all.

    The set was excellent, the band really enjoyed themselves - lots of banter. Barney's dancing was in top form. The set list went (something) like:

    Crystal
    Transmission
    Regret
    Love Vigilantes
    True Faith
    Bizarre Love Triangle
    60 MPH
    Atmosphere
    Close Range
    Temptation
    Love Will Tear Us Apart
    Blue Monday

    Really good to hear Love Vigilantes. LWTUA was a stormer.
