New Order

 

They’ve broken boundaries between rock and electronic music, produced the best selling 12” of all time and have just been announced as Bestival’s Saturday night headliner. So, what finer time (arf!) to celebrate all things New Order than on 6 Music this Friday night?

Formed from the ashes of Joy Division in 1980, New Order became Factory Records’ flagship band, melding Hooky’s signature bass sound with Barney’s knack for a melancholy vocal line. A visit to New York in 1981 introduced them to the synthesizers and beats which informed Power Corruption & Lies (25 years old this year) but it was a jaunt to Ibiza in the mid ‘80s which really changed the game.

Returning to the UK enthused by balearic beats and club culture, they created Technique, paving the way for the indie dance crossover sound beloved of everyone from Primal Scream to Friendly Fires.

Inextricably linked to the Hacienda - in fact their royalties propped up the ailing nightclub for much of its history - New Order have continued to inspire long after the Hac closed its doors. They may have had more bust ups and comebacks than Hooky’s had broken bass guitars straps, but for anyone who sees them live this summer they’ll be guaranteed top tunes galore.

So on this week’s Now Playing @6 Music we want to create the ultimate New Order inspired playlist... but we need you help to choose them. It could be:

* Your favourite New Order records – from the classics Blue Monday and True Faith to album tracks, rarities, covers and remixes
* Influences and inspirations from Kraftwerk and Giorgio Moroder to Derrick May
* Collaborators from Arthur Baker to The Chemical Brothers via Billy Corgan, Bobby Gilespie and Scissor Sisters
* Any New Order solo or side projects, maybe The Other Two, Electronic or even Revenge?

Get in touch with us on Twitter using #NewOrder6Music, Facebook, e-mail and drag tracks onto our shared Spotify playlist – and remember to listen to the show on Friday (17) from 7pm.

    Request: No Joy Division, please? Just this once? No offense intended at all, I'm a huge Joy Division fan, but sliding Love Will Tear Us Apart in at the end would be so predictable. But, if you must, I'd ask to use a recent live version by New Order.
