Am I sh*tposting? Maybe but hey, somebody's got to keep this place alive!



Where's the synth break in this edit? The one at 5:14 below. That's the best part of the track!




"State" isnt one of their most lauded singles, but I think it could have been. Maybe if a producer (John Robie, I guess) had said: "let's work on the quality of those verses, and maybe have less of them"...

I like listening to the production on "Shame". I guess John Robie gets some credit for that.

I'd love to have a re-edit using the original parts of 12" "State" & "Shame", with some better (and less numerous) verses/lyrics. It's almost really good.

One is the 7" single mix and the other is the 12" mix.

Back in the 80s, when New Order had barely done a track that was anything less than 'brilliant', I used to think that 'State' was a rare misstep.
Along with 'Face-Up' and 'Every Little Counts', I used to think these three tracks were pretty poor (at least by NO's standards). Only in my daft, 17-year old opinion, of course (what did I know, eh?).

Now, I love all three of them, especially 'State'.

To be fair, it's probably because there's far more 'less than stellar' stuff by the band, post 1990, to compare those tracks favourably to.
Let's be honest, 'State' is a million times better than 'Chemical', 'Liar', 'Slow Jam', 'Rock The Shack', 'Jetstream' and 'Working Overtime'.

I think 'Shame' is a pretty decent alternate version/remix, so credit to Robie there.

It would be nice if there's a more 'dialled back' version of the track to be included on the Brotherhood set.

I know but cutting out that break is just silly - it's the best bit! By all means edit things down for the 7", but not the good bit.
(I bought the 12" at the time; I think I woulda been p*ssed off with the crappy 7" edit if I had bought that instead).

You could always just listen to "Mr. Disco".

Had a good look and don't see this posted before although the host site gets a mention a few times in these pages.

A good selection but I'm sure "special" is one of those I skip past on Republic. (Actually I think I start skipping shortly after spooky. Must try harder)

Gillian featured on Huw Stephens' Round Table last night (BBC 6Music), commenting on the week's new releases.
Sounds like Steve was in the background too, although he wasn't part of the review panel.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m001wqy6

She mentioned that they are revisiting The Other Two and reissuing the first LP, apparently.
Seems strange, as that was only reissued back in 2020 by LTM/FBN. I think that was meant to be remastered but ended up being a straight reissue of the earlier LTM release (albeit returning to the original cover, after the earlier release had used the Tasty Fish sleeve).

Maybe this time it will be remastered with the addition of extra tracks. Hope so. Maybe some of their other soundtrack work from the period.

Amazed to find the full remastered substance on the in flight entertainment package on Qatar airlines today. I’d no music on my phone so was a nice discovery.

BBC 6 Music currently has an hour of tracks - that sample or are influenced by - Kraftwerk available on the Sounds app & website. All tracks continuous in the mix. Track one is an obscure little ditty by NO that you probably haven't heard of...

6 Music's Rave Forever: A Touch of Kraftwerk




The Sun (of all places) picked up on a story recently about a punk band who released a single in 1979 that only sold 50 copies - that has now been picked up for use in a Hollywood movie. Here's Gary Crowley's twitter (with a BBC news link):


Snack Shack isn't actually a punk film; it's set in 1991. It is quite good though, currently with a score of 75% on Rotten Tomatoes, and an 89% audience score. The film is out, although the BBC article doesn't make that clear.
Anyway, what caught my ear was this track. I haven't heard this version before. It's funny when something like this fades in whilst you're watching a film and you think: "wait, is that...?".

Following on from my post above, I've been watching films again.
Sean Penn film Black Flies aka Asphalt City is currently trending on Amazon Prime UK.
In the opening scene (and again in the final scene) is a familiar piece of music. Technically not NO, but if you've been to a NO gig in the past few years you will have heard it.

New Order: Divers (Wagner: Das Rheingold, Scene 1, Vorspiel)




And if there were any lingering doubts about its influence on All Day Long:

Is that an official T-shirt Roy?
He's still hanging on to grudges against old managers, I see.
I think C**t was his name for Ireland manager Mick McCarthy...

I was in the weird position of hating him for walking out on Ireland in 2002, but still kinda supporting his performances for MUFC.

As a big Man U fan, I loved Keane's performances on the field.
However, I always said, if I saw him in the pub, I'd never approach him. He always struck me as someone I wouldn't want to mess with.
