hello mittas, new order were formed from one of the most seminal rock outfits this side of the 50's, namely joy division (recently nominated for best song of the last 25 years, but williams won ). although they use synths i would say that they are very rooted in rock.
i watched the brits recently which has been getting a bit more concerned with credibility of late. gwen stefani was excellent and snoop and pharrel williams were pretty good. it i amazing to think that n.e.r.d produced 80% of the music played on us radio just a year or two ago.
the grammy's were entertaining also mainly cos i am not used to seeing so many very famous people all in one place. in the final song there was bono, steven tyler from aerosmith, stevie wonder, joss stone (grrr.), billy joe out of green day and i cant remember the rest as i had to drink quite a lot of brandy to get thru joss stone's and Melissa Etheridge's Janis Joplin tribute. i wished they had just given stevie with a piano and let him do his thing, as you can imagine the group rendition of 'across the universe' did not sound sweet.
anyway mittas, just thought i'd clear the new order thing up.
