Ok, so theres plenty of New Order stuff played last night on 6 Music last night as a part of the 6 Music Artist Collection


As part of the 6 Music Artist Collection on New Order, a chance to hear frontman Bernard Sumner sharing his musical milestones in conversation with Matt Everitt. The programme includes Bernard's recollections of the early punk scene in Manchester, his still raw and painful memories of his friend Ian Curtis' suicide, and the genesis of Blue Monday. (First broadcast in 2010)

no idea, no idea

Ok not really new, but Kenneth Partridge of Mental Floss has written perhaps the most complete article you will ever read about the making (and release) of Blue Monday.
BTW Mental Floss are well worth a follow on Twitter.

And if you read all the way to the end, you might like this 2 minute video (even though it forgets Hooky's bassline/Ennio Morricone)


If anyone is wondering about the Klein & MBO track, Bernard used it as a template for the structure of Blue Monday. I believe he used the European Connection (instrumental) version in particular.

A previously unreleased NO track from the '80s now on the Box Set definitive edition of Low-life which came out yesterday.

So Lauren Laverne played a mashup of New Order's Blue Monday and Kylie's Can't Get You Out Of My Head (made by Erol Alkan as a whitelabel couple of years ago) today. Does anyone have a good version of this and can send it to me?

Starts at 24min

Youtube has it, but only with bad audio quality
no idea, no idea

I have it in CD quality on this CD single, but I no longer own a CD ripper/drive so I can't rip it for you.
I also subsequently (years later) jumped on Discogs and bought it on 12" white label thinking that it was going to be a mash up involving New Order's original Blue Monday, rather than Erol's re-created Blue Monday. This was because I had heard such a mashup involving original Blue Monday in the Daniel Craig film Layer Cake. But alas the 12" turned out to have the same re-created elements of Blue Monday as the CD version. So that was a complete waste of money!

Tiga & Zyntherius managed to source original elements of New Order's BM for Blue Sunglasses, so it's a shame that Kylie & Erol didn't do the same.

When you say "a couple of years ago", I presume you are using the expression loosely, as it was 21 years ago (holy crap!). And I remember watching Kylie do this very performance on the Brit Awards back in 2002:



PS New Order are on tour at the moment and I went to see them on Friday night at the O2 Arena.
They didn't throw any Kylie or Tiga into Blue Monday...
IT'S MORNING TIME!
