They are not very good
...the only band to get worse when one of the band's girlfriends left?
Jesus - they've done nothing of any note since Technique. Apart from "Regret".
New Order are what happens when a band is offered tons of money at an age when the drugs no longer appeal as much.
Skint in their youth as all their money was admittedly syphoned from them and made to fund the Hacienda - nonetheless they made thrilling disco punk symphonies. Who could make a record called "Touched By The Hand of God" without any need for humility.
Slip em a million or two (thanks London records) and it's dreary rock toss on proper instruments.
And they have the cheek to play Joy Division songs at their concerts. It's like Simply Red playing Pere Ubu or something.
Give it up chaps - you've pretty much trashed your reputations now.
Is it Editors?
