YES.

Loveee love will tear us aparttt again.

And New Order kicks ass too.

I'm stuck on the new album, I love it.. Crystal, 60mph, Slow Jam..

Saw them about 14 years ago ! I feel lucky to have seen them at all.

Musically, "Get Ready" may be their best album. But oh, the lyrics!

hey MD, not a fan as such, but always been aware of them.
New order were just in Oz for the BigDayOut tour. Two antecdotes that stood out from the radio interview I heard them do..
Q: Did you like any of the newer bands also on the BDO tour?(which included garbage)
A:No

Q: blurb , blurb, something about "pushing 50"?
A: We are not pushing 50!! It is dragging us towards it.

I like that reply. That's why I liked the journalist's phrase who referred to Daniel Lanois as "nudging 50"(see candyfloss' post)
They were also asked who has covered one of their songs they approve of. They replied Frente "Bizarre Love Triangle. I suppose that was the safe answer considering they were on aussie radio.

Joy Division were great.
I always get that early punkish U2ey feeling with that band.

Hello,

I just bought Permanent (ie. the best of Joy Division) Saturday. I haven't fully listened to it, but what I heard sounded very good. I'll let you know more in a few days.

C ya!

I'm a big Joy Division/New Order fan. I LOVE the new New Order album. I've always liked Joy Division's lyrics better, though.

Ian Curtis was a brilliant lyricist. What a huge loss.

This is my favourite Ian Curtis picture:


"Ian was the best performer of his generation. I know that, and I know I was number two. But now he's gone I mean to do it, and in a way I want to do it for him." -- Bono on Joy Division lead singer Ian Curtis

Okay, now I'm sad.

Anyway, http://www.warren.org.uk/music/joyd.html is a great Joy Division site, for any of you that haven't seen it yet. It's where I found out about the Billy Corgan cover of "Isolation," which is fantastic, by the way.

Yeah I got sad too looking at some pics.

I think its very cool that New Order found the courage to go on and make wonderful music without him though.
