Ceremony by New Order

After the death of Ian Curtis it would have been understandable for the remaining members of Joy Division to give up, or try to carry on without their singer. They locked themselves away in Manchester and set about finding a new sound, each taking turns on vocals before Bernard Sumner settled into the role. When Ceremony, which featured Curtis’s lyrics, was released in 1981, it bridged the gap between what Joy Division had been and what New Order would become. It marked a new era for both the city and the band, ushering in the birth of rave, The Haçienda, and a triumphant career for a band who had once lost everything.

The first single released by New Order in 1980.....I remember buying the single...gold sleeve......as if it was yesterday. I used to close my eyes and drift away every time I played it.   5
