That's brilliant, tho' I'm more stoked that New Order did Joy Division songs! esp Atmosphere and Love will tear us apart!

I like the Bravery alot. Have you heard 'Honest Mistake'? It's a really exciting song. I think it's better than Vertigo.

If they are one of those U2-influenced bands, I'm even more excited!

Can anybody give me the album details from The Bravery? How many albums do they have out? Is there another on the way? Just curious if there's another album before the one that features "Honest Mistake".

there's a video stream of a show they did on http://www.fabchannel.com/

maybe they played the cover at that show, i have no idea. i can't sit through more than 20 seconds of them without wanting to shoot their singer.

Ha! When I listen to "No Brakes" I hear a touch of early The Church (not as good of guitarists though ). Mostly in the chorus of the song...towards the end it goes to a more Bono sound. And in "An Honest Mistake" I heard both U2 and New Order.

Unfortunately, in the three songs I have heard so far, they sound like someone else instead of developing their own sound. Perhaps they have in other songs, or maybe they will as they continue, but if I want to hear U2, or New Order, or The Church I'd much rather listen to the originals.

I don't mind a band occasionally sonding like another band. I think Wilco sounds like The Replacements on "I'm A Wheel" and Remy Zero sounds like Queen on a song on Villa Elaine (I forgot which song). But in these three songs ("An Honest Mistake," "Unconditional," "No Brakes") I just don't hear much that I consider original.

Doesn't mean they suck, it just means I most likely wouldn't go by their cd.

I'm now really interested to know why.... I just listened to a few of their songs (meh), but can't really do video on this pc (antiquated pos). So tell me what makes this guy so annoying. I gotta know!

I thought they'd been covering it for a while...but maybe I'm slow and blueeyedgirl was sarcastically pointing this out in her post since I think New Order have been playing Atmosphere and Love Will Tear Us apart for the past five years at least.

OMG rEaLlY??? i thout nEw orDER rotE those SoNgz!!!LOLXZZ




you're probably right. it's just that so many people aren't aware of certain things until 5 years have gone by. i mean, there are people think the clash were "rock the casbah", "should i stay or should i go", and maybe, MAYBE "train in vain".

And Bernard Sumner has this odd tendency to scream at inopportune moments while covering 'She's Lost Control'.
