I was far too busy listening to the Cocteau Twins to countenance such mediocrity.

I like The Cocteau Twins but in my opinion compared to New Order they are not a patch on them. The Cocteau Twins themselves would admit that New Order are hugely more important. You are definitely in the minority Salty if you think New Order are mediocre.
Your obsession gets you known throughout the school for being strange, making lifesize models of The Velvet Underground in clay.

When they played World In Motion with the whole crowd singing along every hair on the back of my neck stood on end and I'm not ashamed to admit I was close to tears. Phenomenal band.


I was there too. Sure it'll come as no surprise that I didn't sing along to this one. :wink:

Strangely enough, they didn't play World In Motion at the Barras when they played in 2001...

Must have been to avoid a murder or something.

They should have stuck with the sentiments of the song and stayed down there too.

in my humble opnion, comparing the cocteau twins to new order is like comparing big star to the posies, the clash to rancid, tfc to the thrills. check out the dates on the back of your cd's. you can't invent mediocrity.
To burn out or fade away. That is the question.

I'm not sure this intellectually bereft post merits a response, but for your edification I might point out that:
1) at no point did I compare the Cocteau Twins and New Order
2) it is a matter of fact that both bands were contemporary
3) my dictionary defines mediocre as 'of middling quality, neither good nor bad'. I couldn't better this description of New Order myself.

i liked them both greatly and still do

yea yea yea. how can i resist salt hair? though i prefer it on a woman....no offence. when i was a pup, i use to work in a record store in the early 80's and had the same fight with my boss. mind you, i like the Cocteau Twins, but every time i would put on New Order in the store, he had to override me and put on the twins. bastard! if we ever meeet again..i will....^%&$*#($)%(** him!

I am probably older then you. I entered New Order from Joy Division, which is, right or worng, why i do not consider them contemporaries with CT.

is this when we are suppose to kiss and make up?

i would like to take this opportunity to babble on a new order story....

i first saw them in washington dc at a place called the ontario theatre in the mid 80's. the reason i love the band so much is peter hook's lyrical bass and was aghast when the first song started without him! they played the next few songs without the bass! finally someone strapped on a bass and played with them..but it was neither good nor peter hook!

they came to town a year or so later at the same venue and bernard sumner began the show by saying they owed us a good show due to thier last performance here. peter hook was in tow and the show still stands as one of the greatest rock and roll shows i have ever attended.

years pass and New Order become 'stars'. they are intereviewed in Spin magazine and Sumner starts talking about this first DC gig as standing out. turns out, peter hook had visited a local bar that night and began drinking 'melonball shooter' (if my memory serves me well) he passed out on the bar and remained their the entire show. ha, ever the punk peter. it was roadie who bravely straped on his bass and finsihed the show.
