New Order have been both one of the most exhilarating of pop groups at at the same time one of the most laconic and infuriating. For the most part a group of 4 hermits who have been hostile to the media at large, unwilling to express themselves past their obscure and beautiful album covers.
Thus, it was a pleasure to find this on the shelf of my local music store, and moreso to hear them express themselves in a casual and sometimes insightful manner. Tony Wilson, the svengali with an edge, also appears and offers insight into Factory Records. Alan Erasmus did not appear but spoke as well.
Sprinkle this with some nice videos and some concert footage, and this a fun, distracting ride into one of pop's more memorable bands.
