All the talk about Barney this week has me seriously jonesing for some New Order. If you are as well, may I humbly recommend New Order – 316. The 2-DVD set has a ’98 set from the Reading Festival…  you can watch that at your own risk.

Worth the price alone is the first disc featuring one of New Order’s first US appearances, a November 1981 show at the Ukrainian National Home in New York City. Just check out “Ceremony” and you’ll be sold:

God bless Barney. Peter Hook, not so much.
