New Order Artist Snapshot:

Born in the early 1980s out of the ashes of U.K. post-punk pioneers Joy Division, New Order became one of the first electro-pop bands to find mainstream success in the US. Their single "Blue Monday" was a landmark in dance music, and subsequent recordings achieved a perfect balance between technology and pop songcraft. They were a standard choice of club DJs through the '80s & '90s and even snuck onto the pop charts occasionally with catchy hits like "True Faith" and "Regret." Leader Bernard Sumner sporadically records with Johnny Marr as Electronic, and occasionally reconvenes the famed quartet.

Product Notes

It''s a simple concept--the first dozen singles by New Order collected, a couple of them rerecorded--but it''s also a totally entertaining seven-year history of the band that married British post-punk alienation to the relentless hedonism of the dance floor. The band''s hits were always deeply unconventional (like the haunting "Blue Monday," essentially a seven-minute drum machine test with a short lyric that alluded to the Falklands War), but they were brilliant productions, layering dozens of electronic countermelodies and percussion tricks over Barney Sumner''s uncertain warble and Peter Hook''s lead bass parts. Though they''re audio snapshots of the dance beats of their time, they''ve held up both as club classics and as idiosyncratic rock songs. --Douglas Wolk
