MEMORIES

This is the second in a series of two, Paris, an unlikely twin for Preston. This cd is, of course, of it's time; not just late 1979 when it was recorded, as Joy Division beat up on their sound and vision to move implacably on, from Unknown Pleasures to Closer, but also Spring 2001, the date of release, reminding us, in the dog days of another culture, traumatised by synthetic rock and an increasingly aimless dance culture, reminding us what pop music is and can be. Thank you Mr Mathers and you limp biscuit boys. But we can do it too. We can be real. And this band was more real than most of us can still cope with. Enjoy
