Hooky's making his rounds advertising his Technique and Republic tour.

Thought it was interesting that he's already made plans to tour Get Ready and WFTSC.

Do we need it?

Well, I for one don't.
I can't really imagine Hooky singing things Krafty and Guilt Is A Useless Emotion.
But, you know, I'm not everyone, so I'm sure some people will be happy.

It does make you wonder though. Is he doing these because he really wants to play them live? Or is he doing it for completeness sake?
Does he really want to revisit 'Rock The Shack', 'Slow Jam' or 'Jetstream'?

I'd hazard a guess that a fair proportion of the people who will go and see this (when he does tour the two albums) are probably going to see it for completeness also.

No, I'd much rather see Hooky focussed on making some new music, either with Monaco, or with another project.
Same goes for New Order. Much as I enjoy the gigs, I want them back in the studio, making a follow up to the bloody excellent Music Complete.

He's doing it out of spite, and because gigging is the only way he can make money right now. He certainly doesn't have any new music to promote. Dead

Fun fact: The interviewer, Mark Kavanagh used to be one half of Irish dance/house/techno act Sound Crowd. They used to sample the shit out of New Order.

Exhibit A


They also had a tune called Touched By The Hand Of Todd. I'm sure there were other examples but I'm too lazy to trawl through all their tracks!

*EDIT*

Exhibit B

Another fun fact: There are five Spice Girls, five letters in Spice and five letters in Girls.
I always see the Light if they're round my parts, but I have to say I'm getting bored of JD every time. Even the NO 81 - 83 kicked off with that other band. I guess it's what Italians really, really want (Unknown Pleasures or Republic?), and they're more suited to live performance and Hooky's ''''''''''vocals'''''''''', but I'm itching for some New Order now. In the UK he's covered the whole 80s...

Funnily enough, they'd be closer to Light material than Liar or Chemical.
Has anyone seen them do that pile of dross? Did they, ahem, pull it off?

I'd rather go see Spice Girls than The Light doing Sirens really.

That's a hard one.
