“Ceremony” – New Order vs. Joy Division
(Joy Division – “Ceremony”)
I would image the above version of “Cermony” is the famed tape that was the bridge between Joy Division and New Order after Ian Curtis’ death. I think I had read how Bernard Sumner had to work to decipher the lyrics. Then New Order re-recorded the song.
(New Order – “Ceremony”)
The above version is the best I’ve heard from New Order. I think (I know) it’s on the double CD compilation, Substance.
(Joy Division – Stephen Morris, Ian Curtis, Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook)
