Released in 1987, New Order’s ‘Substance’ was originally conceived as a way for Factory Records boss, Tony Wilson, to play the New Order singles on the CD player of his new Jaguar car. Substance became Factory Records’ 200th release and remains the best-selling New Order album.

Running from “Ceremony” in 1981 up to “True Faith” in 1987 the set takes in the high points of New Order’s catalogue, including “Blue Monday”, “Bizarre Love Triangle”, “Temptation”, “True Faith”, “The Perfect Kiss” to name a few

Released in 1988, Joy Division’s  ‘Substance’ features all the singles that didn’t appear on the Joy Division albums Unknown Pleasures and Closer, such as “Love Will Tear Us Apart”, “Transmission”,  and “Atmosphere”. Plus their b-sides,  tracks from their EP ‘An Ideal For Living’ and a Factory Records sampler.

Factory Records’ 250th release, it begins with ‘’Warsaw’’ and takes in the development of the band through “Digital” and ‘’Dead Souls’’ to the band’s final tracks.

Since debuting with the Unknown Pleasures Tour in Australia in 2010, Peter Hook & The Light have since toured the globe including a return back Down Under in 2015 with the Low Life & Brotherhood Tour. This return in 2017 will be the most total appreciation to date of the Joy Divison and New Order catalogue.

Bad French

Following on from releasing their standout singles ‘Finley’s Downfall’, ‘Erroll’s Forest’ and ‘Within You’, Central Coast-based dance-pop duo, Bad French, have just returned by revealing their brand-new cut ‘All Your Days Are Here Where You Are Now’.

Recorded and produced by the band themselves between their Sydney and Central Coast home studios, ‘All Your Days Are Here Where You Are Now’ is another intriguing slice of 80’s inspired electro-pop glimmering with moments of psychedelia and reminiscent to some of the group’s staple influences Tame Impala, AIR and Icehouse.

Song-writer / multi-instrumentalist, M. Carney describes the creative and recording process for ‘All Your Days Are Here Where You Are Now’ –

“Dan kicked off the musical idea one lazy afternoon in his studio at MacMasters Beach on an acoustic guitar with a chilled-out drum beat. I Bad Frenchified it with some stabby synths and found a drony pulsing bass sound to sit underneath. The chorus was at first an offbeat melodic idea, but Dan matched his words to it, and it became quite an unusual musical mantra that has grown on us over time. We then decided go to Jupiter and back with the instrumental!”

Their previous singles have received support from local online press, community radio and triple j Unearthed. The group have also performed shows supporting the likes of I Know Leopard, Polish Club, Boo Seeka and have even held their own gigs on front man Daniel Forsyth’s front lawn.

Over the coming months the band will continue to work on new material and perform around Sydney and the NSW Central Coast.

‘All Your Days Are Here Where You Are Now’ is now available to stream via Soundcloud and available via Spotify, Apple Music and all other good digital retailers on Friday March 10.

The Velvet Addiction

Melbourne-based, 70′s rock’n’roll inspired misfits The Velvet Addiction have released their debut single Take Me Back; a swaggering, classic-rock influenced tune that will have you reaching for your leather-jacket and aviators.

To accompany the debut single, Take Me Back, the boisterous boys have also released a music video which demonstrates The Velvet Addiction‘s charisma soaked live shows.

To celebrate the release of Take Me Back and its music video The Velvet Addiction will be hitting the road to tour through Albury, Melbourne, Geelong, Byron Bay, Sydney, and Ballarat.

Take Me Back will be available for purchase from iTunes on Friday, March 10. To grab the track go HERE.

Despite being the first release for the young band, the boys of The Velvet Addiction are a unified group, contributing their individual takes to create a larger creative product.

For vocalist, Stefan West, Take Me Back is about the emotional roller coaster of a relationship and how nostalgia can be a barrier.

Take Me Back is about trying to find that feeling you get when you first start a relationship, the feeling when that person is the only thing you want or need to make you feel whole or happy,” said West.

Guitarist, Aaron Bach, says the song is about the way many people can see things differently and the miscommunication that results.

“It’s about the struggles of differing opinions, the different perspectives that can turn something that always meant nothing to you into something that’s the end of the world,” said Bach.

Delivering an accepting message is what Take Me Back means to drummer, Kieran Howle.

“To me, it’s about trying to find that balance and above all knowing that whatever happens, it’ll be alright,” said Howle.

Formed after a boozy night in a local Melbourne bar, the four musicians came together recognising each others dark histories including broken homes and family violence.

As a result The Velvet Addiction aims show their support for fellow victims of mental health through their upbeat, positive rock’n’roll.
