Blue Monday (New Order cover)

Get Flash to see this player.

So, lately it's been nothing, nothing, nothing and even more nothing. And now, this is the first of three songs I started working on all at once.

This is a cover of one of the better known tunes from New Order. Originally released in '82 or '83, it sounded more like a product of the band's previous incarnation Joy Division, but it was redone and rereleased in '86 as a straight-up synth pop tune.

This is not a synth pop cover. It's guitars, drums, vocals and lots of distortion. And it's another step in my effort to cover every song from the 80s. (At least the ones I like.)

It's also the debut recording using my new bass: an Ibanez Mikro. It's a short scale bass and it's metallic purple and a hell of a lot of fun to play.

Hope y'all enjoy this and, as always - PLAY IT LOUD!!!
