NEW ORDER have posted an audio stream of their new single 'Restless', the first complete piece of music the band have shared since announcing the release of a new album 'Music Complete' on September 25th, out now on Mute.
NEW ORDER have announced that they embark on a short run of European dates in November in support of their upcoming new studio album 'Music Complete.'

A new order for New Order   
by brooklynlad1

First, let me say -- I (like most other reviewers here) have been a NO fan for well over two decades now.
Every album they've released -- up to now -- has had a few stellar tracks, several good ones, and a couple that you tend to pass over every time for whatever reason. UNTIL NOW. Music Complete is not only their best album, but there is NOT ONE BAD SONG on it. It's simply a brilliant album from start to finish. Everyone here has their favourites already. I must go with "Superheated", the album's last -- and best -- track. Seriously -- if you don't find yourself moving to this song, there is something wrong with you.


DURAN DURAN have unveiled the first single from their forthcoming 'Paper Gods' album.
'Pressure Off' features vocals from Janelle MonĂ¡e and guitar by NILE RODGERS.
'Paper Gods' was released on September 18th in North America.

1980s Funeral Tribute For Steve Strange

Visage frontman Steve Strange’s last appearance on earth was inside this white coffin. With pall bearers from Culture Club (Boy George picture on the left) and Spandau Ballet, he leaves our view in the same fashion that he entered it.

In case you don’t remember that far back, Steve Strange saw early fame with a Sex Pistols gig in the late ’70s, and went on to form the New Romantic movement

Some of you might remember his first international appearance in David Bowie’s “Ashes to Ashes.” OH, THE IRONY!
