For the past week my head has been full of the awesome new New Order album Music Complete. It has completely exceeded expectations. Any fears I had about New Order being a pale imitation of themselves without Peter Hook has been well and truly wiped away. In my opinion the album is the best since 1988’s ground-breaking album Technique. The entire new album has also been remixed, so I started with a remix of the first single of Music Complete, Restless, followed by my favourite track off the album Plastic.
These were followed by two of my favourite tracks from Paul Kalkbrenner’s new album 7. This is a brilliant triple album, which is pressed at 45rpms, so it’s basically three 12″s making it great to DJ tracks off.
