I dreamt for a second that it was the other night at Tokyo. And then I clicked the thumbnail. Black eye

That would be too surprising for New Order

From the beginning, Amazon (US) said to expect it on February 1st. This Thursday, they changed the expected delivery date to read "Wednesday" (which is February 1st! Clown). That's now been updated to "shipped" with delivery today (Friday).

No sign of the Sub-Culture, The Perfect Kiss and Shellshock digital versions of the 12" re-releases on digital download stores or streaming today. When the PCL box was released, the digital singles were available on the same day. Can't remember with Movement - I didn't buy them until a week after the box release date, so maybe they came out a week later.

Been looking forward to buying the CD quality downloads (or hopefully higher rez) from Qobuz. Let's hope they get released soon.

My box has been dispatched by Amazon to arrive tomorrow. 😎



I got it for £71.23 in the end. Like a few, I was surprised and put back by the initial £150 RRP and left my box and tshirt order in my 'bag' on the NO Store without checking out.

I recently placed my order at £121.23 with Amazon and by this time, I had earned a £50 voucher from doing the odd paid survey (roughly 1 a fortnight) with Yougov, which I probably started when the PC&L box came out!

Might go back for the tshirt if it's still in stock... 😁





Edit: LowLife & STILL tshirts on their way.

Haven't really got used to these tracks being freely available on YouTube. Seems weird.

So far, I'm resisting the temptation to listen to these.

Weirdly, the Let's Go Instrumental is 4:14. Wasn't it on download sites or YouTube a few weeks back at 2:01 or similar? Or have I imagined that?
Perhaps it was only an extract.

Yeah mine is now by 10pm Saturday....

...would really like to spend Saturday night watching the DVDs with a nice bottle of wine!

With vouchers got my box for £55.22 in the end...

...the service that pays me in Amazon vouchers for watching TV came up with a handy £70 of vouchers just in time!

Would prefer delivery today though - could still happen (glad I work from home).

Just checked my Qobuz Studio Streaming service and the two CDs are available for me to stream for free at 24-96 (Hi-Res)...

...not sure I want to jump the gun though before getting the box (despite the better than CD quality).

Sometimes Qobuz provide a PDF of the book with box sets (all Zappa box sets have this) - sadly no Low-Life book in the Qobuz Goodies section.

Just received my limited edition Perfect Kiss 12”.
Oh my, it’s a thing of absolute beauty. The mirrored sleeve is very sturdy and the text is embossed. Inner sleeve is one-sided purple and the clear vinyl is heavy duty and, well, it’s just gorgeous.

Mine all just arrived.

Love that the SubCulture 12" inner sleeve is a black card cut-out disco sleeve, so exactly the same as the original 12", but it's only the inner!


The dark grey OBI strip on the box looks great against the silvery grey

My inner of my standard Perfect Kiss 12" i'd say is bright pink rather than purple, so don't know if that's different to the mirrored edition, or just us being colour-blind

Was going to say the same thing.
My limited Perfect Kiss has arrived and it looks glorious.

By 'purple', is it more Magenta, because that's what mine is? I'm not splitting hairs; it's just that the original single was released with different colour inners (I think), so wondered if they did the same here.

I'm a bit jealous. Hopefully not too long to wait now.

Ah, yes. Just spotted this. See my comment above. I'm guessing they're all the same.
Does the standard version have an inner sleeve and, if so, what colour?

Mine is the standard grey 2023 issue - inner seen here against the grey outer and the black inner of SubCulture to give a colour comparison

So untitled 1 (writing session) sounds like a nascant BLT. Hooky's bass is nice here - melodic and warm. Too bad it's only 1:30




Re: Untitled 2 (writing session). The arpeggio-ish keyboard melody from 0:00 to 0:29 (and 1:27 to 1:56, and 2:53 to 3:21 etc) reminds me of something, but I cant think what. Possibly not New Order.
Liking the funky synth bass line, and Hooky really gets into it as the track goes on. It doesn't seem to be an obvous precursor to a better known NO track. That's a shame because it feels like it could have gone to be something worthwhile. But great that it has been unearthed. Perhaps not for the first time?

Yodel reliably informs me mine will be here tomorrow (purchased from the NO store).

I pre-ordered the Hi-Res audio off of Qobuz so I've got the CD stuff in 24-bit this afternoon. Just dumped it onto my phone for a listen as I finish work.

Noting very little difference between the "2022" and the "2015" master - both by Frank Arkwright - so assuming this isn't exactly a completely "new" remaster? Nevertheless...

As Mr Discography correctly notes, I'm not seeing digital versions of the 12" singles on digital services yet. Hope they appear soon.

The first one has the same synth rhythm as BLT I guess, but is different chords, so I doubt it evolved directly into BLT - more likely it was just a favourite keyboard rhythm pattern of whoever came up with it

The second one - in terms of familiarity it sounds somewhere between the theme from Knight Rider and Radiohead's Street Spirit (Fade-Out)

BTW for anyone tracking their Amazon delivery - mine didn't even reach the Out For Delivery status by the time it arrived.

Anyway it's all the good times - my work finishes early on a Friday afternoon - it's going to be a hell of a Friday night...

...almost as good as that spring morning (circa 25th May 1985) when I bought the original LP and TPK 12'' !!!

Well, mine's arrived. Ripping discs for later consumption.
More later... once I've enjoyed this.


I'm pleased that most people's copies appear to be with them.

Direct hit! Got home from work and the box had been delivered.They left it just inside my front gate behind the wall just , according to the email, 10 minutes before i got home from work at 2pm.Glad it wasn't sitting outside all afternoon.It has the Obi band, though i wasn't fussed either way if it had it or not really.

Annoyingly, i missed the attempted delivery this morning by Royal Mail of the TPK Mirrored 12".I'll have to wait til tomorrow morning to go pick that up from the sorting office.

Anyways, box is here, i'm off for the weekend now and i'm going inSmile

Untitled 1 is interesting.Or interesting in the fact i can't hear anything at all in it that eventually made it into a released song.Can't even hear any nascent BLT in there as some have suggested.

Some notes from my initial comparisons of the "previously released" unreleased CD

The full-length Elegia is the same recording but a different mix to the previously released version on Retro. A much warmer mix plus noticeably right at the end (the 40 second fade out) both stereo channels remain with full instrumentation, whereas on the previous version, the Left channel drops out to just a very quiet string part


The Sunrise Rough Instrumental Mix is also a slightly different mix to the one released on the Discreet Campaigns Cassette. The guitar string scrape just before evrything comes in (around the 40 second mark) is noticeably different. Plus this mix fades out slightly later and has more guitar scratching at the end


The Sooner Than You Think unedited version, is as we'd hoped just a longer more intense end section from which passages were cut for the album edit. It's identical up until the break-down around the 3:40 mark

Let's Go instrumental - not the same as the Salvation soundtrack or the 1963 b-side version, but is the same as the commonly circulating bootleg Low-life out-take - just without the vocals. Weird that a vocal take definitely exists as it's been shared so widely. Maybe there was just no master for it?

Everything else is new to me (ie not on the Low-life rehearsal tapes boot)

Now remember an extra reason why I binned my PCL Obi...

...the wife comes home and picks up the Low-Life Obi:-

"What's this dear?"

She turns the Obi over and pulls a face like she has just swallowed a raw lemon:-

"Strong sex references!"

Thanks New Order...

...my wife now thinks I have ordered a box of blue movies.

Thanks to all involved in bringing this about (again.)


All 3 are now sandwiched between my Palatine and The Catalogue boxes on the shelf to beat them all. (And I might just copy Adam T and add Dec's book.)
