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 ...

Like many longtime fans I had given up. After the awful Republic in 1993 (admitedly the single Regret was a wonderful 'goodbye') New Order split up and disappeared. They became part of the past. The comeback began in 1999 with Out Of Control on The Chemical Brother's Surrender album. The break with keyboards, guitar and Barney going 'woo!' in time honoured tradition brought a sloppy grin as I heard the old magic in a new song. 2001's Get Ready album was a joy to have but close inspection revealed only 3 REALLY good tracks (Crystal, Slow Jam & Run Wild).
Waiting For The Siren's Call however has 10 great tracks (skip Working Overtime) several of which stand up to their 80's best.
The silly but emotive simple rhyming lyrics, the synth led sound with great guitar - bass interplay, the stacato drumming; the year might be 2005 but it feels like 1989 as that was the last time New Order were this good!
Krafty is a fix of happiness, I Told You So is wonderful cod reggae that feels like it should follow Mr Disco on Technique, the title track is on a par with Bizarre Love Triangle, Barney's singing as good as he's ever been and Turn bittersweet and poignant as only New Order can be.
New Order may not be so 'new' anymore but as current trends lead back to 80's music why bother with kid's copying when the real thing sounds better!

New Order is back again and with an album. Remembering the old times, WAITING FOR THE SIRENS' CALL sounds like a collection of early songs that never were released before. With Phil Cunningham replacing Gillian Gilbert on guitar and keyboards, the reborn New Order found breath to write pulsating songs that can conquer new admirers and satisfy demanding fans. "Krafty", the new single, is a synthesis of their twenty five years career and it places New Order in a warm space in the pop scene. Mixing electro and slim rock, basic rhythm guitars and synth beats, their music refuses to accept easy labels. And that's cool.
This four piece band from Manchester (UK) was the first dance oriented post-punk group in the World. Without New Order we wouldn't have Moby, Chemical Brothers, Doves, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol and The Killers. And WAITING FOR THE SIRENS' CALL confirms that. Produced by New Order and also by Stephen Street, John Leckie and Stuart Price, the new album recovers the past with dignity and reaffirms their influence over forming bands in England. And now they're much more a guitar based band than an electronic pop group.
WAITING FOR THE SIRENS' CALL have wonderful songs: "Who's Joe?", the opening track, is one of them; "Hey Now What You're Doing" and "Morning Night and Day" have the essence of the eighties; "Dracula's Castle" is a kind of soft dark rock and have an unexpected bass line; we can dance with "I Told You So", "Jetstream" and "Guilty is a Useless Emotion" (this is the "party side" of the album); "Turn" is a sunny sub-TECHNIQUE song; and the amazing "Working Overtime" sounds like The Stooges.
This album is not for fans only. WAITING FOR THE SIRENS' CALL contains the key for a better understanding of the road through where britpop travels now. That is more than a record, is an artistic declaration. But just enjoy it. It's good, but not the best New Order CD, of course.

Firstly I am a big NO fan - from about 1987 and hearing "Substance" then buying their back catalogue of albums and every album since.
Having heard this album several times now and just read all the online reviews here on Amazon, I have reached the conclusion that there is a very definite split between hardcore NO fans.
Tracks evoke different emotions and some are loved or hated seemingly equally. Perhaps that is the genius of NO - they have a huge following yet nobody can quite put their finger on and agree on where that genius lies.
For my part I think the tracks here owe more to Electronic, Johnny Marr, and Bernard Sumner and the NO of "Get Ready" than they do to the New Order behind Technique, Blue Monday, True Faith, and Republic. There are undertones of "Republic" but anyone who says there is a strong vein of pop songs like "Technique" must be listening to a completely different album.
One thing bothering me at the moment is the track listing - Who's Joe and Hey Now What You Doing have lyrically identical first lines! Didn't someone point this out to the boys before they decided to put them together on the album?!
Personally I like "I told you so", "Morning Night & Day" and "Jetstream" - dislikes are "Dracula's Castle" which I find really doesn't fit in with the other tracks here and "Working Overtime" which is just kind of blah really.
Doubtless some will agree with me, but like I said, many other NO fans will totally disagree. I think it is testimony to NO's diversity that this is so, and proves that no matter your taste in music there is always room for NO in your music collection.
Things that never change are Bernard Sumners voice (which lets be honest, may be unique, but is ultimately rubbish) and Hooky's unmistakable bass sound.

New Order are one of the best bands in the World, fact. If they had surrendered to commercialism in the eighties I think they would have sat at the top of it, however this doesn't mean they would have produced the brilliant records that they do. I for one think we are lucky to have them. How many bands can say they went on to be more successful after the death of a charismatic and gifted member? How many bands can say they released singles that don't appear on albums? Yes New Order have gone more commercial since the factory demise, but they didn't have much choice. I know Hooky never made any money until he was in his mid thirties, so come on.
This latest album is probably the best thing since Technique. There is the foul stench of 'radio friendliness' in the single Krafty, but I think on the strength of songs like 'Turn' and Morning, Night and Day, and 'Hey Now what you doing.' You know you are listening to the New Order of old.
I think over time this will be a classed classic New Order.
