Dennis Remmer, Foreword by Mark Reeder
UK retail price: £15.99
US retail price: $22.95

New Order have produced some of the most influential popular music of the last 40 years. A unique vision of alternative electronic rock, forged in Manchester and exported to the world, the band connected with the alternative-minded as well as the club-centric; the football fan and the artist; the boffin and the aesthete.

The journey of New Order to the world has been nothing short of incredible: their punk-ignited founding as Warsaw; the eternally astonishing Joy Division and the rise and fall of Factory Records and The Haçienda. There were many remarkable associations including Martin Hannett, Peter Saville, Tony Wilson, Rob Gretton, Arthur Baker and Michael Shamberg. There were side hustles as BeMusic, Electronic, Revenge, The Other Two, Monaco, Bad Lieutenant, and The Light. Then there were their tragic losses, their unholy messes, their resilience, and, most importantly, the magnificent leftfield music written variously by Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert, Phil Cunningham, and Tom Chapman.

This book reviews every song New Order has officially released to date across every album from Movement to Music Complete, plus the many singles, compilations, soundtracks, and other releases. This book is ‘remixed’ (with updated and additional information) from the author’s hugely popular and band-endorsed NewOrderTracks blog.

The Author

Dennis Remmer lives in Brisbane, Queensland – the capital city of Australia’s own ‘north’; a city renowned for its independent music scene. A lifelong devotee of New Order, Dennis has been applying their influence on a lifetime’s exploration of indie, electronic, and alternative music. Dennis (and his partner Anna) formed the Brisbane record label Trans:Com in 1994, and in 2014 published BNE - The Definitive Archive, which documents the city’s secret history of electronic music production.
