Thirty-one years after the release of their debut, post–Joy Division Movement, and six years after a brief reunion tour that took them around Brazil, Argentina, and the U.K., New Order are back and heading to New York, set to descend upon a city whose music scene remains influenced by the artists they once influenced
(we see you, James Murphy and DFA
Records). Hope for a set list that favors old hits (“Temptation,” “Bizarre Love Triangle,” and the like) over cuts from the more recent Waiting for the Sirens’ Call,
and pour one out for Peter Hook, the bassist who decided not to make the trip.
