and not a moment too soon. "Krafty" makes me want to cut myself.

Seems New Order really have heeded the sirens' call and sailed off into oblivion. Speaking to UK radio station Xfm recently, the legendary quartet's bassist Peter Hook more or less confirmed what has been hinted at for some time now: the band is finished.

Hook was asked about his collaborating with Satellite Party, to which he replied: "I spoke to Perry [Farrell], and he asked me to play bass, as he'd heard about New Order splitting up. Well yeah, me and Bernard [Sumner] aren't working together."

Xfm then inquired whether the split was permanent, prompting Hook to say, "Bernard went off for a break with Electronic [with Johnny Marr], but that was different. But it's like the boy who cried wolf this time." We're not entirely sure what he means by that, but it doesn't seem to bode particularly well for our love vigilantes.

Hook has certainly found plenty else to occupy his time of late. In addition to Satellite Party, Hook has his Freebass supergroup with fellow low-enders Andy Rourke (the Smiths) and Mani (Primal Scream/Stone Roses). The Freebass boys are presently auditioning singers.

Hook's also been playing out recently with David Potts (his former bandmate in Revenge and Monaco), he and New Order have music in the forthcoming Ian Curtis biopic Control, and he DJs regularly (upcoming dates ahead). Perhaps most interestingly, Hook recently hopped on the cyber train and established his own MySpace page, complete with long-winded, poorly punctuated blog entries. In one of these, he begins a paragraph (capitalization his): "SAW A COUPLE OF OLD FRIENDS FROM NEW ORDER DAYS..." One usually doesn't speak of his "such-and-such days" until those dates are behind him. Alas!

I auditioned as a singer for Freebass.
Nice bowl of Crunchy Nut you got here, pretty expensive as I recall.

So long as I can still listen to Substance, whatever.

No, it'll be stupid, and we're already doing something stupid.

I still don't see how some disliked 'Krafty.' I have the single and all, what, three or was it four, remixes were grand as well.

I feel the exact opposite. I have no idea what people like about it. Sounds like a really bad CCM song to me.

I liked all the singles off the last album! This is bad news for me, I'll never get to see them or depend on them for a catchy song every few years or so. I know Andrew leads the pack on "New Order sucks now and they used to be brilliant" but "Here To Stay," "Krafty," and "Jetstream," are some of my favorite singles of this decade.

The chorus of Krafty just seems so lazy to me. I dunno. I was real excited when I first turned it on and real disappointed when it was over.

No, it'll be stupid, and we're already doing something stupid.

"Turn" was one of the best things they've ever done. In addition, there were two or three decent songs on the album. So yeah, I guess this is ok.

it was really weird to hear the chorus of "Krafty" and then find out it was New Order of all bands. This isn't terrible news, considering Peter Hook is one of my favorite bass players and hearing about this Freebass shit is pretty awesome.

They've been talking about Freebass for like 3 years. They claimed they already had a singer.
