“Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I’m waiting for that final moment
You say the words that I can’t say”

– Bizarre Love Triangle  Lyrics, New Order

‘I feel so extraordinary’… as the first stanza of the song ‘True Faith’ goes by New Order… oh but this is what I actually felt watching them live on the night of Aug 22, 2012 @ Forth Canning Park Singapore.

This English rock band was originally formed in 1976 as Joy Division (‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’), the lead vocalist committed suicide in 1980 but the rest of the members moved and on that same year gave birth to ‘New Order’. Tension broke the group in 1993 but was able to reform in 1998.  A member who functioned in  keyboard, guitars, and synthesizers was replaced in 2001. In 2007, an original member left and apparently, this dispersed the band.When 2009 came the lead vocals announced he no longer wishes to make music as New Order. The band reunited in 2011 without the original member who left in 2007 but returning with the member who was replaced in 2001.

Somewhere in between those numbers of years, at one point I thought I never get to see them live…ever!  The years of existence of New Order had too much drama. I’m not an avid follower of the group per se but I’m a big fan of their music. But here they are in my face, literary in my face because I was just standing in the side of the stage while they played. And yeah, I rest my case on the vocalist (Bernard Sumner) who looks like Horatio Caine (David Caruso) of CSI Miami if anyone noticed. They are one of the greats and influential band that 80’s music produced in the era of new wave and electronic sound.

This band was very giving, they kept throwing the crowd hits after hits and though I felt we are not worthy , they even let us hear ‘Love Will Tear us Apart’ from Joy Division. Seeing them now, performing live after 20 plus years of enjoying ‘Bizarre Love Triangle’ was an awesome experience. I would prefer to have caught them live at their prime but this is better than never.
