Cheers for the heads-up. I'd have missed this.

^ Yes I caught that Radio 4 thing with Stephen on Saturday morning. He said he liked the version of BM done for the Wonder Woman 84 trailer.

On BBC News the other night, being interviewed about the sacking of Frank Lampard at Chelsea, in his room at home Pat Nevin had a selection of framed record sleeves and a frame with the image from the cover of Procession.

An interesting and in-depth article especially if you are of Asian-American background

How Can I Explain: An Incomplete Oral History of Asian Americans and Our Ineffable Love of New Wave

https://themuse.jezebel.com/how-...tory-of-asian-1845911631

Quote:
Jim Lee: When I was in college, we used to call “Bizarre Love Triangle” the Korean American national anthem, because like there was no other song that got Koreans on the dance floor like New Order’s “Bizarre Love Triangle.”

Oliver Wang: I don’t actually know why we gravitated toward “Bizarre Love Triangle” as opposed to any other New Order song as opposed to any other big New Wave hit from the same era. That’s just where we landed. And it’s an inside joke. It’s a generational inside joke. In the ’90s when I was in college, like anyone I talked to who was Asian American, we were all in on it. We all understood it.

Hua Hsu: Everyone knew it, everyone loved it. And we didn’t really think about why that was, nor do we know now. It was just cool to have this little shared secret. That was the song everyone would wait for at a school dance.

Cynthia Leung: I always think of the dance floor as a metaphor because that’s when you see when people go deep into whatever song is playing. You don’t need to know the title, but they all have this collective reaction where you’re like, everyone knows this song. I think even to this day when people hear,
especially New Order, they all bond.

At our senior prom, “Bizarre Love Triangle” came on randomly and the entire dance floor cleared. And then it was Ben Cho, Eileen Tsai, and me and my prom date, and we’re just going all out.

Around the 1 hour 05 minute mark. Thanks to Digital Mike for the 'heads up' on this.

sorry, actual page:

"they will never be New Order in the critics eye, but they say just as much about the era".
good read.

I gave this a mention in Music For Pleasure because it features a Killing Division track. Exclusive!
But does anyone look at Music For Pleasure?

Ah. I missed that.

I find myself forgetting to check there.

I haven't had chance to listen to this yet. Was there any mention that these Killing Division tracks will be released on CD?
I haven't ordered the vinyl, as I'm holding on for CD (much like I am with 'Be A Rebel').
