New Or­der in new split shock

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Can we have that in writ­ing please? Bassist Peter Hook con­firmed the news that New Or­der have split. “Well, yeah, me and Bernard aren’t work­ing to­gether,” he said dur­ing a ra­dio in­ter­view. “Bernard went off for a break with Elec­tronic, but that was dif­fer­ent. But it’s like the boy who cried wolf this time.”

On the Record can­not help notic­ing that news of New Or­der’s demise came to light only when Hook was on the air­waves flog­ging his in­volv­ment with Perry Farrell’s new band Satel­lite Party.

The story also helped to em­bel­lish a few col­umn inches about Con­trol, the new Joy Di­vi­sion film about to be screened at the Cannes Film Fes­ti­val. It fea­tures mu­sic by, yes, New Or­der.

Given that we have been here be­fore with New Or­der, don’t rule out see­ing Hook’s off-the-an­kle bass-play­ing tech­nique star­ring on a stage with Sum­ner again in the fu­ture.

Stop me if you think that you’ve heard this one be­fore... It’s over, says Peter Hook
