i was beginning to think the same thing. there is a lot of hard work behind the scenes. i have a new found respect for poll runner after this. no wonder musically gave up on our end of the year lists.

Bee OK, Thursday, 30 May 2013 02:15 (seven years ago) link

I found it really hard to pick my favourite videos. I have a feeling my top two will be the same as the results.

Just read this on Wikipedia,

The band filmed a performance of the song for Top of the Pops from the beach where Baywatch was filmed, featuring David Hasselhoff and various extras in the background. The band initially wanted to have Hasselhoff mime along to the song

That would have been great!

nice eye, thanks for linking that.

that version is 15 seconds longer.

Bee OK, Thursday, 30 May 2013 03:25 (seven years ago) link

Love the Confusion video. Can't remember who pointed out to me that it was shot by the v great Henri Alekan.

Holy Ghost made a practically shot-for-shot remake, complete with Arthur Baker cameo: http://vimeo.com/10870979

Millsner, Thursday, 30 May 2013 03:28 (seven years ago) link

so the number of votes doubled for "Confusion" went from five to 10.

Bee OK, Thursday, 30 May 2013 03:35 (seven years ago) link

I just realised there is going to be a glaring omission from the top 3 :(

don't be so quick to lose hope... there be surprises ahead, let me assure you

this was going to be James Murphy, but they happened to run into Arthur Baker the week before; when they told him about the video he insisted on playing himself instead

have to admit that i didn't vote in the video poll. i was burnt out by then. these last two however would have been ones i would have voted for along with the next two.

Bee OK, Thursday, 30 May 2013 04:00 (seven years ago) link

Damn, forgot Confusion. Actually my 2nd fave. Voted in a rush for vids. Touched = 2, TPK = 1.

still room for 60 MPH at #1 though

more on topic, however, is that Bill Paxton in that video?

the girl from spirea x (f. hazel), Thursday, 30 May 2013 04:16 (seven years ago) link

Perfect Kiss will be number one, making the top three just about spot on.

got invited to this but i think i have seen New Order enough in my life. i will see.

Bee OK, Tuesday, 25 February 2020 02:42 (five months ago) link

I've never seen New Order so I'm kind of all over this

totally unnecessary bewbz of exploitation (DJP), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 17:50 (five months ago) link

The three times I've seen them have been Hook-less, all good to outstanding.

TikTok to the (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 17:52 (five months ago) link

I've seen them ...4 times, maybe? One with Hook, the rest without, but they've all been good. However, every time I've seen the PSBs (maybe 5?) they've been better, or at least I had a better time. NO always felt pretty nostalgia show, as solid as they were. PSB introduced more surprises: different mixes, a good selection of songs. The bigger question is whether the two will collaborate on any of the Electronic songs. A highlight of seeing Johnny Marr the last time he came through town was him playing "Getting Away With It."

(Note to tour people: they should just add Johnny Marr to the bill, as featured player.)

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 25 February 2020 18:05 (five months ago) link

I saw them once with Hook way back in 1989, which I'm grateful for simply because I think the various emerging solo ventures after that essentially broke what had been a steady dynamic (at least in terms of Sumner/Hook/Morris having been working together since '77). But I've not seen them since, so I'm intrigued to see them again now with all that time and distance. That 1989 crowd was a worshipful LA-area KROQ bedrock experience, young and enraptured -- and clearly that can't be the case this time around, growing old means that much.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 25 February 2020 18:14 (five months ago) link

New Order sound great as a band, and they do different versions of their songs now, which is fun to hear, but holy shit, Bernard Sumner is somehow even worse of a live singer now than he was back in the day, and he was really shit back in the day too. Anyway, should be fun, but just don't go because you love Bernard's voice.

brotherlovesdub, Tuesday, 25 February 2020 18:20 (five months ago) link

I go for the lyrics.

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 25 February 2020 18:21 (five months ago) link

Anyone who goes to see New Order live because they love Bernard Sumner's voice is insane

totally unnecessary bewbz of exploitation (DJP), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 18:56 (five months ago) link

I earned the highest GPA of any senior from the Bernard Sumner School of Advanced Lyric Writing and Singing, and I would never check out NO to revel in his pipes.

TikTok to the (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:00 (five months ago) link

I feel good and i feel bad, but common sense i've never had.

brotherlovesdub, Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:03 (five months ago) link

One reason I haven't seen New Order live is because I've seen concert footage and my general reaction has been "why do they let him sing"

totally unnecessary bewbz of exploitation (DJP), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:03 (five months ago) link

Why don''t they let Gillian take a turn on vocals for the next album? It can't be worse. They should have Bernard on 4 songs, Gillian on 2, and then finish the album with 2-3 instrumentals.

brotherlovesdub, Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:04 (five months ago) link

Hook’s NO book suggests that he ground his teeth in irritation through most of their shows, at Barney’s whoops and laziness

Fantastic. Great move. Well done (sic), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:07 (five months ago) link

I got the impression from Hook's memoir that everyone in the band was lazy except Peter Hook.

TikTok to the (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:12 (five months ago) link

Well Peter Hook can eat a bag of dicks too, with his COME ON'S yelled during LWTUA and the rest of anything he utters on the microphone. Keep that man 50 yards from the nearest live mic, imo.

brotherlovesdub, Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:13 (five months ago) link

So the solution is to bring along Dave Gahan?

totally unnecessary bewbz of exploitation (DJP), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:15 (five months ago) link

Jimmy Coversale.

TikTok to the (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:17 (five months ago) link

Coverdale too.

TikTok to the (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:17 (five months ago) link

I'm telling you, get Marr! Marr is a fine singer, and can not only bolster Sumner and the band but also play with the PSBs and sing with them, too.

Or Coverdale, he's got pipes.

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:35 (five months ago) link

what's the guy from Information Society up to

avellano medio Inglés (f. hazel), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:41 (five months ago) link

Pure energy.

TikTok to the (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:44 (five months ago) link

I dunno, David Sommerville might be a better fit.

(Marr has an acceptable voice if you want to hear Smiths songs being sung over while Johnny Marr plays guitar. He is a very boring frontman though [also Bernard Butler replaced him as PSB utility guitarist on the new album, whose own voice is more on a The Other Two level])


I got the impression from Hook's memoir that everyone in the band was lazy except Peter Hook.

He very fairly also gives the impression that everyone in the band hates going to work with him because he’s such a massive prick.

Fantastic. Great move. Well done (sic), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:49 (five months ago) link

About the only kind thing he says about Gillian was how well the three worked together recording Republic before Sumner and Stephen Hague purportedly ruined it.

TikTok to the (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:51 (five months ago) link

The Hague.

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 25 February 2020 19:52 (five months ago) link

i have probably seen New Order around 10 - 12 times and all with Peter Hook. like others have said they are an ok band live, but it's not like seeing Depeche Mode or the Cure where it's an event. anyways, my friends really want me to go so i'm probably going and looking forward to seeing Pet Shop Boys for the first time.

Dan S, Wednesday, 26 February 2020 02:18 (five months ago) link

I love the early New Order live recordings/clips, where Barney looked like he (and the rest of them) wanted to be anywhere else but there, like the 1983 TOTP performance:
