    I just now learned that Bernard covered Bowie’s “Be My Wife” in February at Carnegie Hall:

    ...but I can’t find it anywhere on YouTube. Can anyone help?

    New Order — “well, sort of New Order” as leader Bernard Sumner qualified his band — paid tribute to David Bowie with a version of “Be My Wife” that showed how much the two men’s voices have in common. (Sumner added that Bowie “was a huge influence on Joy Division back in the day.”) The group also delivered magnificent readings of their “Ceremony” and “Love Vigilantes.” On the latter, Sumner sang the signature couplets “I want to see/My family/My wife and child/Waiting for me” in his plaintive high tenor, conjuring images of despicable ICE activity at the U.S. borders.

    Mary Ann Hobbs on BBC 6 Music played Unknown Pleasures in its entirety and almost interrupted (quick intermission to flip the sides, figuratively)

    listened to Unknown Pleasures in the car today and was sad i wasn't at home to put on my vinyl copy haha

    amazing that it still sounds like a groundbreaking album 40 years after its release

    @jmtd how's that 40th anniversary red vinyl sound? i have the 30th anniversary one (i believe the bottom one in your photo) and it's pretty good, love the textured sleeve.

    Only one listen so far and I haven't A/B-ed them (probably won't) but it sounds great

    I bought the black one in either 2007 or 2008, I think before the 30th reissue. Did they remaster it?

    i'm pretty sure that release was remastered, yeah. (according to discogs, that's a yes) it's the one i have and i like it quite a lot.

    it does not appear that the new 40th anniversary edition was remastered, but it's unclear whether they used the 2007 remaster or the 2015 remaster (which i'm guessing are different?)

    these new videos are trash.

    i mean fine for some other bands i guess. but not for Joy Division.

    its clear that this is a corporate cash grab at this point.
