Additional information about this New Order vinyl art.
New Order – The Band
New Order are an English rock band formed in 1980 by vocalist and guitarist Bernard Sumner, bassist Peter Hook and drummer Stephen Morris. 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.
True Faith – The Song
True Faith is a song by the British synth-pop band New Order. The band wrote and recorded True Faith and “1963” during a 10-day studio session with producer Stephen Hague. The two songs were written as new material for New Order’s first singles compilation album, Substance 1987. The song, True Faith never appeared on a album in its own right other than the singles compilation. It has been remixed in various 7″ and 12″ versions.
Factory Records managed many prominent musical acts such as Joy Division, New Order, A Certain Ratio, The Durutti Column, Happy Mondays, Northside, and (briefly) Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark and James. Like the 4AD label, Factory Records used a creative team (most notably record producer Martin Hannett and graphic designer Peter Saville) which gave the label and the artists recording for it a particular sound and image. The label employed a unique cataloguing system that gave a number not just to its musical releases, but to artwork and other objects, as well.
