[NEW & USED ORDER] Oh, they’ve gone green-eyed, the former members of New Order. Given the levels of rancor and evidently never-ending lawsuits, fans must choose between the greatest-hits collection occasionally toured by three-fourths of the original line-up or the far more rough and ready venture currently undertaken by iconic bassist Peter Hook. After enlisting his son, who plays the six-string when dad’s singing, and a few old side-project mates to play the Joy Division oeuvre to some controversy and more success three years back, Hooky’s continuing onward with live renditions of the first two New Order albums, plus singles and B-sides from the era. Truth be told, revisiting Closer absent Ian Curtis seems no less inauthentic than either incarnation pumping forth the delirious dance of unchained youth midst a comfortable dotage. But the bloody-minded devotion to completism and genuine appreciation of clubs a scale or two below the arenas booked by his former troupe at least feels a more proper celebration of the truly grand legacy.
