New Order were formed in the demise of their previous post-punk band Joy Division, following the suicide of vocalist Ian Curtis. They were joined by Gillian Gilbert on keyboards later that year. Their integration of post-punk with electronic and dance music made them one of the most critically acclaimed and influential bands of the 1980s.

The Tea Pot – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a china tea pot. Inspired by Brew Monday.
The third Monday in January has become know as Blue Monday because it is widely recognised as the most depressing month of the year. This is because the festive season is over, bills may have arrived, payday is someway off, the weather is winter gloomy and New Year resolutions have often been shelved. This year’s Blue Monday falls during a lockdown in a worldwide pandemic, meaning that challenges faced by many people in winter will be felt even more acutely. People are being encouraged to turn Blue Monday into a Brew Monday, when friends and family make a cup of tea and have a chat on the phone or online to show they care about each other. The Samaritans are urging that people virtually check in with friends and relatives to check that they are all right.
