Curious about the title of this post well it is the name of a new live album from electronic pioneers New order.

New Order’s 2017 set at Manchester International Festival is captured on a new live album from the band. Division made their television debut on Tony Wilson’s “So It Goes program” in 1978. For the show “∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes…”, New Order deconstructed, rethought and rebuilt a wealth of material from throughout their career: familiar and obscure, old and new.

“∑(No,12k,Lg,17Mif) New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes…” will be released July 12 on triple vinyl, double CD and digital formats. You can listen to “Sub-culture” live from the 2017 Manchester International Festival right below.

The founding member of the iconic 80’s English band speaks on his multi-decade career and his memories from recording one of the finest albums of 1989, Technique, on the island of Ibiza during a time when dance music was taking Balearic beat to a whole new dimension.

The new live album was recorded live on July 13, 2017 and includes the full show as well as three additional tracks recorded over the residency to give listeners a full representation of the breadth of material performed. The album is featuring tracks such as “Disorder” – from Joy Division’s “Unknown Pleasures” and not played live for 30 years – up to 2015’s “Plastic” from New Order’s “Music Complete”.

Created in collaboration with visual artist Liam Gillick – who has previously presented solo exhibitions at venues such as Tate Britain and MoMA in New York – and orchestrated by composer-arranger Joe Duddell, a fellow son of Manchester and a frequent New Order collaborator, the live show was performed by the band with a 12-strong synthesiser ensemble from the Royal Northern College of Music.
