∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes..
In June 2017, New Order returned to the stage at Manchester’s Old Granada Studios where Joy Division made their television debut on Tony Wilson’s So It Goes programme in 1978. That concert performance is now released as ∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes .. on limited 3LP coloured vinyl or as a two-CD package.
For the celebrated show, New Order “deconstructed, rethought and rebuilt” a wealth of material from throughout their career: familiar and obscure, old and new. This includes tracks such as ‘Disorder’, from Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures (not played live for 30 years), up to ‘Plastic’ from 2015’s Music Complete.
This album was recorded live on 13 July 2017 and includes the full show and encore plus three additional tracks recorded over the five-night residency, to fully represent the breadth of material performed.
The show and performance was created in collaboration with visual artist Liam Gillick and orchestrated by composer-arranger Joe Duddell, the live show was performed by the band with a 12-strong synthesiser ensemble from the Royal Northern College of Music.
The limited edition 3LP edition is pressed on red, light green and blue transparent vinyl, which are packaged – with a 24-page 12-inch booklet – in a spot varnished hardback slipcase. The vinyl set includes ‘hi definition’ digital download of all 18 tracks.
The double CD edition comes packaged in a triple gatefold spot-varnished sleeve and comes with a booklet.
