New Order - RFH (Decades) - 14 May 1984 - 192kb

New Order in 1984, well on the way to becoming a mainstream band.

But playing their new songs, they suddenly bring "Decades" back to life.

The vocals hardly compare, the trademark Bernard Sumner "whoop" has to be there, but nonetheless the song has huge emotive power.

  1. Superb gig. I would like to humbly request that you please post more from 84; I would think that a lot of readers might also be really into the Roskilde Festival gig, for instance. Thanks, and keep up the good work.

  2. This was also the first outing of The Perfect Kiss (aka "I've Got A Cock Like The M1". Classic!

  3. Thanks for the postings. Just posted something from 1984!

  4. I was there too. I think everyone was momentarily nonplussed when the Decades beat started up. This version TPK also contains elements of 'This Time Of Night' when you listen carefully. All in all a unique gig this one!
