Saturday Night Live
Six months after they played Japan pumped full of drugs (which I posted two weeks ago) New Order played the Manhattan Club in Leuven, Belgium. This is a far more confident set, with a fuller sound and a more engaged audience. Hooky's hair has grown out from that top knot he had in Japan to a full ponytail. It opens with Let's Go, followed by a magnificent Perfect Kiss, and includes Age Of Consent, Thieves Like Us, Atmosphere (which Bernard precedes with the riff from All Along The Watchtower, yes, really) and Temptation amongst others. They finish with Blue Monday. Obviously.
But you're probably watching the Eurovision Song Contest.
