I'm Waiting for that Final Moment

My iPod has been insisting on me listening to New Order's Bizarre Love Triangle. It's come up on shuffle at least three times in the past few days. Great song, no doubt, but I'm looking for variety when I'm on shuffle. iPod knows this. Perhaps it's tired.

Anyway, if you're expecting New Order to reach back into their archives ala Joy Division, well, you're SOL for now. Peter Hook and Bernard Sumner are still being pissy with each other - at fans' expense of course.

I am intrigued by Hook's new project Freebass, though...

...his bass guitar-celebrating group with Smiths alumnus Andy Rourke and Stone Roses/Primal Scream vet Gary "Mani" Mounfield. The group has recently cut tracks with the Charlatans' Tim Burgess and rapper Howard Marx and is putting together a schedule for 2008 summer European festivals.
