New Order – Movement (2008 Remastered, 2CD)


New Order – Movement (2008 Remastered, 2CD)

Movement was New Order’s debut album, released in November 1981 on Factory Records.

This work was recorded not long after Ian Curtis’ death and this is the closest NO came to the Joy Division sound.

This comes in a digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition.

Disc One in this package contains the original 1981 album in its digitally remastered glory.

Disc Two is filled with non-album singles, B-sides and remixes.

At the time of its release, this album wasn’t particularly well received by critics or consumers, only peaking at #30 on the UK album charts. Closer, an album the band had released just over a year before as Joy Division, reached #6.

Movement cover After the death of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis and the severe effect this had upon those close to him, the remaining members of Joy Division elected to carry on, albeit under a new name – New Order.

With the exception of two songs, “Ceremony” and “In a Lonely Place” (unrecorded in the studio but played live at the time of Curtis’s death), all the material played would be new.

A couple of songs on Movement stem from the initial songwriting session the band undertook in the summer of 1980.

“Dreams Never End” and “Truth” were both played at the initial New Order concerts (still played as trio) in the US that September. At this point it was still undecided as to who should be vocalist. The interim solution was that all three members took turns at singing before finally deciding that Bernard Sumner should take the main vocalist’s role with Peter Hook as back-up (though he sang lead on “Dreams Never End” and “Doubts Even Here”).

The introduction in November 1980 of Gillian Gilbert, Stephen Morris’s girlfriend, lightened the burden on Sumner who had to play guitar and keyboards and sing (something he found impossible to do simultaneously) and enabled the band to pursue a more electronic approach.

Subsequently, the remainder of the songs that appeared on Movement were written and then recorded over a seven month period “in two big bits, and a whole lot of little bits” (Sumner’s words), as well as “Mesh,” “Cries and Whispers” (both early live staples and used as B-sides), “Procession” and “Everything’s Gone Green,” the latter forming a non-album single released as FAC53 in September 1981.

The producer of the album was once again Martin Hannett, who had worked with them as Joy Division; however, the rapport between producer and band had in the ensuing time eroded. Hannett was in a legal dispute with Factory Records and suffering from substance and alcohol abuse, and the band members–themselves still coming to terms with having to write and arrange songs without Curtis’s ear and lyric-writing ability–found him uncooperative. It would be the last time they worked together.

As noted above, upon its release in November 1981–just weeks after the Joy Division retrospective/live double album Still– Movement was met with a tepid reception, with critics disappointed by what was perceived to be a lack of forward momentum after the “Ceremony” single. It is rumoured that the band considered either re-mixing or even entirely re-recording the album, but time and financial constraints prevented this. Fortunately, a new song called “Temptation” would provide the band with the necessary impetus and a new direction.

Movement cover
The album’s cover was designed by Peter Saville and is based on a Futurist poster by Fortunato Depero. ‘F’ refers to Factory Records / Factory Communications Limited and ‘L’ the roman numeral 50 – the album being classified as FAC50. The blue colour was chosen by the band, although initial copies in America had the same design with a white background.

One of the most influential amongst the first wave of new wave post-punk bands, Joy Division, gets the documentary treatment in the Under Review series.

This excellent doc focuses on not one record, but the entire career of the band and what happened in their wake.

The documentary starts out exploring the punk scene in the UK and how one particular Sex Pistols gig in Manchester influenced an entire crowd of people who ended up forming their own bands, many of which became rather successful.

It was at this gig that three young Manc blokes decided to form a band and called themselves Warsaw.

It wasn’t long before a name change to Joy Division and they continued their gigging and recording.

The story is told through interviews with various music journalists and one of the co-authors of the Ian Curtis biography. They leave no stone uncovered, delving into everything including Curtis’ battle with epilepsy, his extra-marital affair, his depression and eventual suicide.

We get loads of video footage, live footage, interview footage, and TV appearance footage. The doc does an extremely good job in educating the viewer about pretty much anything they’d want to know about Joy Division, and even give some in-depth analysis about the records and specific songs on them.

Joy Division – An Ideal For Living E.P ( Enigma 1978 )

Joy Division – An Ideal For Living E.P (Enigma 1978 )

Self-released in 1978, on their own Enigma label, this is the first recording by the mighty Joy Division, shortly after changing their name from “Warsaw”.

All tracks were recorded at the Pennine Sound Studios, Oldham, on December 14, 1977.

A 7″ version was released in June 1978, followed by a 12″ version in September 1978.

More primitive and punky than their later full releases Unknown Pleasures and Closer, you can see here the template for their sound and vision.

The infamous cover is a black-and-white picture of a blonde Hitler Youth member beating a drum, which was drawn by guitarist Bernard Sumner, together with the words “Joy Division!” printed in a blackletter font. The cover design fuelled controversy over whether the band had Nazi sympathies. As the cover hints, the release reflects the band’s early punk tendencies, as opposed to the more bleak post-punk ethos the band would later develop.

Tracklisting

  1. “Warsaw” (2:26)
  2. “No Love Lost” (3:42)
  3. “Leaders of Men” (2:34)
  4. “Failures” (3:44)

Joy Division – “The Best Of Joy Division” (2 CD)

Warsaw (Joy Division) – Warsaw (@320)

What was planned to be Joy Division’s first LP (unreleased until 1994, except in bootleg form) sounds like an album from the punk era – raw and edgy, undisciplined but tuneful. In fact, quite unlike the group’s proper debut, Unknown Pleasures.

All of the tracks were later seen in different form, but Warsaw still manages to captivate through its pure energy.

In addition to the twelve tracks from the bootleg recordings, the album also includes five tracks from July 1977, the most punk-inspired songs in the group’s discography.

Tracklisting

01. Drawback
02. Leaders Of Men
03. They Walked In Line
04. Failures
05. Novelty
06. No Love Lost
07. Transmission
08. Living In The Ice Age
09. Interzone
10. Warsaw
11. Shadowplay
12. As You Said
13. Inside The Line
14. Gutz
15. At A Later Date
16. Kill
17. You’re No Good For Me

Here be Polish Music:

Joy Division – Closer (1980/2007) on 180g VINYL!!!

Big thanks to TSURURADIO for this one!

Here’s his post.

Don’t forget to check out his top site!

Weary inside,
now our hearts lost forever
Can’t replace the fear
or the thrill of the chase
These rituals showed up the door
for our wanderings
Opened and shut,
then slammed in our face
Where have they been…

From TSURURADIO:

Today’s post is a very special post, a first, but hopefully not last, in a new series…. Today is our very first TSURURADIO Vinyl Preservation Society vinyl rip by pervy-ninja and friend Josh, and it’s a doozy, Joy Division’s Closer on 180g vinyl!

Through a couple emails, when asked why he loved this album, and why did it need to be experienced on vinyl, he wrote…

Josh wrote:

“Hmmm… Why did I rip it? Why should it be heard on vinyl? Well, you said you hadn’t listened to any Joy Division and I was surprised to hear that from you, heheh. So that’s one reason. Also the album was originally released in 1980 (when vinyl was the format). It was just recently remastered and re-pressed on 180g vinyl, complete with original album art. Sooo…yeah, you gotta hear it on vinyl .

One thing worth making note of is the album’s finale, the song “Decades.” Though it’s only my opinion, this is one of my favorite songs of all time. They couldn’t have ended the album any other way.

What do I love about the album, besides the finale? Not to sound cliche but I love the atmosphere of the whole album. It starts off well with “Atrocity Exhibition.” The album slows down and speeds up and slows down again. It has its own distinct atmosphere of melancholy I’ve never heard elsewhere. Their music paved the way/inspired countless future acts and it continues to still.

Well, I certainly couldn’t have said it any better myself! Thank you so much Josh! Alright, let’s do it, shall we? Here we go (exciting, isn’t it?)…
