Playing tracks by
New Order, ALPINESTARS, GUS GUS, Jozif, The Strike Boys and more.
I wasn't that much of a Joy Division fan back in the day -- my observation was that depressives were listening to Joy Division and us bodyrockers were more into acts like Roxy Music whose Flesh and Blood had come out by then -- so seeing the Ian Curtis biopic "Control" recently just made me want to hear some New Order tracks. This set serves up the associations that flow from bookending two New Order favorites, starting out with "Temptation" & achieving synthpop ultimacy with the final track, "Your Silent Face".
Soooo ... higher energy than usual, very much a dance mix, certainly intended to make you wriggle in your office chair, at the very least. In truth, you might suddenly find yourself standing up just so you can move a bit more freely. Of course, you wouldn’t want it to get out of hand, spinning and bouncing around in your cubicle -- after all, anyone could look in and there you'd be ...
Yep, there you'd be.
Let them see you dancing.
