a view without a room, unveils the truth so soon…

new order are one of the best bands ever, and have been on my play list since the early 80’s.

they are not a guitar band with synthesisers, nor are they a synthesiser band with guitars. they are a fully integrated band without any separation.

they started out as Joy Division, then after Ian Curtis died, they became new order. i remember buying Blue Monday on 12″ vinyl and playing it to death. after that i was hooked. in 1985 they released Low-Life. this is one of my ‘all time’ favourite albums. i’ve listened to it over 50 times, and know all the lyrics of by heart. it’s one of those albums that all the songs flow into/connect to each other, so the album is and experience when listened to all the way through. i vividly remember listening to it on my Discman, walking in the park and singing as loud as i could. the homeless people started coming out of the trees and were very upset with me. was an eerie experience.

i got to see them live during the Brotherhood tour. was so fantastic.

i only like their work up to and including Technique. after that i lost interest.

i like walking in the park
when it gets late at night
i move ’round in the dark
and leave when it gets light
i sit around by day
tied up in chains so tight
these crazy words of mine
so wrong they could be right
what do i get out of this?
i always try, i always miss
one of these days you’ll go back to your home
you won’t even notice that you are alone
one of these days when you sit by yourself
you’ll realize you can’t shaft without someone else
in the end you will submit
it’s got to hurt you a little bit

i like talking in my sleep
when people work so hard
they need what they can keep
a choice that leaves them scarred
a view without a room
unveils the truth so soon

and when the sun goes down
you’ve lost what you have found.
what do i get out of this?

you won’t even notice that you are alone…babe.

    • thank you….in the begining there was not a lot of difference….but when they released Power Coruption and Lies, the sound changed to a more synth sound.
