New Order - 'Lost Sirens'

New Order - 'Lost Sirens'

As the sad spat between New Order’s founder members drags itself ever further down, you’d hope this companion to 2005’s ‘Waiting For The Sirens’ Call’ (originally planned as a double album) might give them pause to remember what they...

Another ‘Best Of’? Are they taking the piss or what? Currently, New Order have ‘Substance’, ‘The Best Of New Order’, ‘The Rest Of New Order’, the four-CD ‘Retro’ box-set and an American import called ‘International’ all...

New Order: Waiting For The Siren's Call

New Order: Waiting For The Siren's Call

One hesitates to fire slingshots at giants, but this is... half-decent at best, a perfunctory doodle of Hooky bass and big, bright synth washes from a band who we love for their ecstatic-with-a-capital-E masterpieces. Like Echo & The Bunnymen...

New Order : Waiting For The Sirens’ Call

New Order  : Sydney Hordern Pavilion

New Order : Sydney Hordern Pavilion

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...

New Order  : 60 Miles An Hour

New Order : 60 Miles An Hour

Once the most enigmatic and otherworldly band in pop, the main mystery about New Order now centres around how Stephen managed to end up being the coolest. On '60 Miles An Hour', another track from their woefully disappointing comeback album 'Get...
