Looking back

I tracked down the reissue of the first New Order LP a couple days ago. It has some great extra tracks, A-sides and B-sides and such.

But the album itself ... most of it just doesn't hold up well. Procession (an A-side) is still gorgeous, but most of the album sounds like the free tracks Joy Division gave away to magazines and such, half finished ideas mostly. It is not as good as I remember.

So, what is music that you went back to after some years that doesn't live up to the memory?

  • So, what's going on this weekend?

    It's gonna be a weekend! Chicago Friday night, Champaign Saturday night. The Peoples Church of Chicago 941 W Lawrence Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60640…

  • Demicon!

    Two shows, no waiting. We stormed through both of them. The new songs are finally figuring out who they are onstage. Music Room Show Persephone…

  • So yeah, that thing

    I am on DW, same name as here. I will, as I have done for months now, post there and have it drift over here.
