It is sad that New Order broke up, they are one of the greatest band to come out of England. Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook are musical LEGENDS. So last year Bernard Sumner came out with his band called Bad Lieutenant and their cd "Never Cry Another Tear" was a really good cd with great melodies, catchy songs and New Order moments woven into the album, and then Peter Hook comes out of nowhere with his band called FreeBass and their album is called "It's a Beautiful Life", this is also a great cd with Peter Hook's classic bass in it, the songs are catchy with great melodies in it, it has great New Order type of music woven in to it also, this album surprised the hell out of me, Very good. As a die hard New Order fan I thought that I will never hear music from them again but now we get two albums from them, also if you like this please check out Peter Hook's previous band called Monaco and their album " Music For pleasure" is also a very good album. It is sad that New Order broke up, I hope that they get back together and I am still waiting for the Leftover's from the WFTSC sessions, till then I will have to do with their side project which is also a very good thing.

Peter Saville colour wheel
A Certain Ratio

"Manchester, 1978. In the beginning there were four: Jez Kerr (bass), Martin Moscrop (guitar/trumpet), Peter Terrel (guitar/effects) and Simon Topping (vocals/trumpet). Four thin boys with a name borrowed from a Brian Eno record, the intense, drummerless quartet initially drew influence from Wire, Eno, the Velvets and Kraftwerk, and gained a manager in Anthony Wilson of Factory Records.

"May 1979 saw the release of their first ACR single, the dark All Night Party, although the sound and musicianship of the band would be transformed by the arrival of funky drummer Donald Johnson (DoJo) in August. Over the next few months the band gigged widely, often with Joy Division as part of Factory packages, and recorded demos with producer Martin Hannett as well as a Peel session. Their support slot with Talking Heads on their UK tour in December 1979 set David Byrne on a new course, and provided the compelling live half of their chic cassette package The Graveyard and the Ballroom. Post-punk, ACR now reflected the influence of Funkadelic, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, The Bar Kays and James Brown."
