New Order's Bernard Sumner Rails Against Mental Health Services Underfunding


Bernard Sumner New Order

New Order frontman Bernard Sumner has strongly criticised the state of funding for mental health services in Britain, branding the neglect as “disgusting” and urging that it be addressed quickly.

With the band gearing up to promote a new Sky Arts documentary film about the band’s 40 years of work as both New Order and Joy Division, titled Decades and which airs later this week, Sumner reflected on the fate of Joy Division’s late singer, Ian Curtis, and spoke about what provisions there currently are in the UK for people with both mental health issues and epilepsy – from which Curtis struggled before his suicide in 1980.

“I'm not just talking about epilepsy but mental health issues for young people especially school kids it's criminally underfunded,” he told Sky News. “When the coalition government, after the banking crisis in 2008, formed they underfunded the NHS and they completely underfunded help for young people with mental issues.”

A Guide To Clockenflap 2015


New Order ASAP Rocky Bo Ningen DJ Yoda Mr Scruff

What is it?
Hong Kong's music scene isn't exactly world famous, but Clockenflap has been doing a solid job of putting it on the map for the past eight years and 2015 is no different. With the biggest artists to date and record breaking sales it's definitely growing on the international calendar as one to watch. It takes place between Friday the 27th and Sunday the 29th of November in the West Kowloon Cultural District.

Clockenflap 2015

Why it's great?
Other than the fact that you've got that movie scene skyline as a backdrop you mean? Okay then. Well, first of all shows in Hong Kong are polite, like organised circle pit polite. Second, it's not too big yet. Granted the site of Worthy Farm is as big as all of Hong Kong it was never going to be quite that big, but if Hong Kongers are good at anything then it's utilising space and not an inch is wasted here with art installations, stages and plenty more packed in. Third, there's no camping and as if that wasn't enough there's no mud either! Hell, it's probably at least a balmy 24 degrees outside. Did we mention you couldn't camp even if you really, really were looking forward to spending three days in piss wet through stinky tent with a snorer?

New Order - Music Complete Album Review


New Order have returned with their new album 'Music Complete', their first without Peter Hook, but that's not what it is all about. Surely, it can only be a good thing that these guys are back again?

New Order - Music Complete Album Review

Naturally, bands reinvent themselves and New Order is no different, although you know that these guys are never going to fully escape from the 80s. Fellow pop band Duran Duran may have also made a successful return, but you just sense that New Order can do this on a bigger and better scale.

If the first track and single 'Restless' is anything to go by on what this album is all about then, we are in for a treat. You might think they have wasted the best song by putting on the top of the track list, but then you hear the follow up 'Singularity'; just pure genius of loud, fast, raw and pure all rolled into one. A cracking tune to carry on proceedings.

Indie legends New Order have confirmed more details of their new album, their first in ten years, including its title and release date. Music Complete will be out on September 25th this year, available on Mute Records.

As well as being their first album of brand new material since 2005’s Waiting For The Sirens’ Call (2013’s Lost Sirens was an LP of offcuts from the same sessions), it is their first since the acrimonious departure of Peter Hook in 2007.

A teaser for Music Complete can be seen below, the clip of which contains the album’s artwork which has been supplied by Peter Saville, the original graphic designer for the band and their original record label Factory.

New Order Announces First Album In Ten Years


New Order Bernard Sumner Peter Hook JOY DIVISION

They’re the band that simply refused to die. Surviving inter-band disputes and departures, the death of singer Ian Curtis and any amount of hiatuses, British post-punk survivors New Order have announced plans for their first album in ten years.

The news follows in the wake of a sold-out tour last summer, and lead singer Bernard Sumner told Rolling Stone: “The shows were being well-received and we were enjoying it. It seemed like the logical thing to do.” Two songs have already been completed, ‘Plastic’ and ‘Restless’, which were debuted during that tour.

Peter Hook, the original bass player with Joy Division, has blasted New Order for setting up an official Twitter page for the legendary group without his input. Depressingly, the Joy Division page was set up to help flog the newly released Lyrics & Notebooks of late singer Ian Curtis and Hook was understandably incensed. 

Peter HookPeter Hook is not happy

"@neworder Thanks for telling me.. As a member of @joydivision it would have been nice to have been informed" he said on Twitter.
