Biography

Biography by Jason Ankeny

Rising from the ashes of the legendary British post-punk unit Joy Division, the enigmatic New Order triumphed over tragedy to emerge as one of the most influential and acclaimed bands of the 1980s; embracing the electronic textures and disco rhythms of the underground club culture many years in advance of its contemporaries, the group's pioneering fusion of ...

This is most definitely a turning point for the Order. Movement was really a Joy Division release without Curtis, whereas Power Corruption and Lies is clearly a band finding their own sound with the distinctive use of electronics throughout. I have this on vinyl and the track order is very different to the CD listed. However I am sure this will not detract from ones overall enjoyment.
The opener "Age of Consent" brings Hooky's base to the fore of the music and Morris's drumming is excellent along with Bernard’s (slightly more) confident vocals combine to give a definitive New Order Track.
Another track of note is "586", which can only remind listeners of Blue Monday. The distinctive New Order sound is very much present, which would be developed in later albums.
These are two of my personal favourites from the album, but to be honest none of the tracks are weak. This isn't the best Order album to buy first, (Low - Life would be a better first buy), but this is still an excellent release.

New Order issues
===================================================================
Warner respond to fan complaints about poor quality re-issues
10 October 2008 - Peter Hook has revealed to the BBC that the New Order reissues have received complaints from fans because of the poor quality.

The records were released at the end of September and Hook has blamed the problems on cut backs in the record industry and some missing tapes.

The former Joy Division and New Order bassist explained the problem: "Funnily enough we've actually got a few problems with our fans complaining about the quality of the re-masters of the companion discs. Not the LP's because they're safe and the tapes for those we have.

"A lot of them are lost, between us listening to the collation and between them coming onto the CD, something seems to have gone wrong."

Hook attributed it to problems within the record company, saying: "They don't have half the staff they used to have so everything becomes quite a trial, and I know from doing the Hacienda compilation tape, you get a lot of masters of old songs - they are mastered from the record because nobody can find the tape."

And it seems there was some miscommunication with their record label: "What's been intensely annoying for us is that all these people are complaining because they've bought them in the shops and Warner's chose to release them to the shops before they sent them to the band, so I haven't got one. A masterful piece of planning."

Contact Warner

Warner say that if any of the fans want to contact them about the quality of the New Order re-issues, then they can email this address:

A bouncy, jolly treat, "Power, Corruption & Lies" leaps into action right from the get-go. Opener, "Age of Consent" rocks-out in ways their debut album, "Movement" didn't (and couldn't) before dipping into jazzy melancholy with "We All Stand". Then comes the game changer, "The Village"; the drum machines and sequencers are switched on and the band are in the pipeline for a full-on early 80's Electro blowout. Each subsequent track mines new veins of possibility while joyous experimentation runs rampant throughout. Timeless, fantastic stuff!

Coming some two years after Movement, this was the
turning point album in many ways. Many, including
the band themselves, felt that Movement was too
close to the Joy Division sound and this is partly
borne out as they are not keen to play anything
from it (barring the odd Dreams Never End!).
Movement was also the last JD/NO album to be
produced by the gifted (and late) genius Martin
Hannett. So, P, C & L sees the band stretching
out in different directions at the same time.
Your Silent Face is classic early NO: a sequenced
and metronomic line locked in tight to Steve's
Oberheim DMX drum machine (later to find fame on
Blue Monday). On top of these are Gillian's
spacious string lines, Hooky's melodic bass and
Barney intoning the lethal pay-off line before
aforementioned strings - and his melodica! -
come back: "You've caught me at a bad time so
why don't you piss off?".
I've seen them do this track live a few times,
the last time being in October 2001 at Brixton
and to see a few hundred people shout it back
at Barney is quite something! On record, it's
a glorious moment.
Leave Me Alone is stripped-down, powering along
on Hooky's driving bass and Steve's dynamic
drumming. Ecstacy features another minimal
bassline and superb vocoder vocals. They only
used it on this (and The Beach), it went wrong,
they spent a fortune on it but it never worked
again! Ultraviolence conveys an air of menace
where Barney's restrained vocals compliment the
impending savagery of the music perfectly.
Both We All Stand and 586 first saw an airing in
early form on a Peel session in the summer of 82.
