31) "The Mid-Morning Recording" New
Orlando and I would have to say that this is one of the bands that certainly
influenced our love of British indie-pop. When we were putting this
show together to honor Tony Wilson, we thought it best to play as much
New Order as we possibly could. So, we took a look at their back catalog,
and there were several albums that immediately jumped out. In the end
we thought that it would be best to play their 2005 career-spanning
singles compilation. This is mainly because New Order made so many good
songs that we couldn't pick one album that fully represented their years
at Factory. Even this compilation takes up two CD's and almost two and
one-half hours to cut the surface of this great band. If anything good
comes from the death of Tony Wilson, maybe this influential band will
keep it going with more great music in honor of him and his love of
Manchester. Even if they don't continue on, we will always have their
great albums and some of the best indie songs ever created to look back
on. Tonight we play thirty-one of these songs, many of which were indeed
brought to light by one Mr. Tony Wilson. Thank you Tony for knowing
good music when you heard it.
