Just an idea: A thread for stuff relating to Twitter, FB, instagram, Spotify etc. If y'all don't like it then I guess it'll just fade away like other threads.
First post incorporates two of the above.

I don't know if I use Spotify differently from others, but when I click on the link above it takes me to THIS page. However if I try to play a track from it, Spotify opens up on my PC and just sort of looks at me. So I had to type in Mixtape New Order to find what I tried to play.
I notice on the initial link that track 4 is listed as True Dub from the Hacienda Acid House Classics comp (True dub is indeed how the track is listed - incorrectly- on that compilation) but when I open up Spotify properly it correctly names the track as True Faith, the Eschreamer Dub (and lists the Brotherhood reissue as the source).
Anyway, I'm sure Hooky would be pleased for his Hacienda comp to get a mention in a NO playlist.

So you mean like a thread to collate any stuff of interest New Order post on Twitter, Facebook etc? Might be a good idea, might not.I'm not on Twitter or Facebook so it'll probably of more help to me than a lot of people, i'll find out about stuff i wouldn't otherwise have known about.

Was there a thread for the Singles compilation reissue? I can't find it. Could it have been lost when the forum went down?
They're calling Singles a box set now, just for fun. I suppose a 4 piece vinyl set is a kind of a box-set...

I posted on a past thread with my displeasure about New Order on Spotify. And nothing's changed. They are missing most of Substance & their singles before MC. Compared with other bands from their era, their Spotify page is the worst.

I love Spotify, use it everyday. I even took all music off my phone, because Spotify has everything. but I still have New Order, because it's just not there. Sorry boys, no streaming clicks from me until you put your full library up.

Yes but that's your own problem really. You chose to wholesale - and rather rigidly - to move over to a music delivery platform which didn't have a big enough selection of one of your favourite band's back catalogue for your liking. Throwing your toys out of the pram about it on here probably isn't going to have much of an impact.

We all have different listening habits. Personally, I don't like Spotify because if I happen to be on a plane or somewhere else with no mobile or Wi-Fi connection then I can't use it. Plus the sound quality's shite. Spotify is basically 'leasing' music to you based on your connection and subscription. I'd rather own a copy (CD, vinyl, FLAC etc.) so I can do what I like with it. It's a bit more effort to maintain but if you're passionate about the music then I have found that is its own reward. Each to their own in that regard.

Most importantly, there's famously bugger all money in streaming from an artist perspective - unless you're Beyonce or Adele - so the incentive is not there for them to have a truly comprehensive offering. Why put all that effort into assembling something that will be given away for something only slightly better than free?

I suspect you'll have to live with the 'New Order Spotify Scandal' for some time to come. Condolences.

What happened to: "we got it off the book jacket of a George Orwell novel"?


**EDIT**
In case ya'll are wondering what this post is about. New Order's twitter did a little video montage tweet re PCL being 35 years old. It said the album title was inspired by a german artist defacing a building with the words Power Corruption & Lies. I replied asking the same question I asked above in this post, and now the tweet has been deleted. Funny that.

Hmmm. What was this? Some sort of festival?

The wav file sounds like it was recorded halfway down the street from the actual event.

Very odd.

Found a tiny bit of information (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/misleading-influencers-factory-forty-tickets-46116274017) - it was a free event (not sure who organised it) that was scheduled for last Saturday. The sound of typewriters...maybe we'll hear more about this and any other anniversary events down the line:

"Assembling a group of people, born after 19/05/78, ideally creative aspiring who will understand what Factory (Factory Records) is. for 90 minutes from 7pm on Saturday 19th May 2018. They must be prepared to use a manual typewriter and will be filmed during their participation. Refreshments and typewriters will be provided."

Thanks.
Ok. So, I’m a little wiser, but it’s still fairly baffling.

They gave him an an honourary masters degree for playing the drums? Nice to see he isn't taking it too seriously.
