Three years in the making, many hours and headaches later, www.neworderweb.net is FINALLY HERE!
They say music changes lives, personally I thought this was a load of rubbish …..until….
Rewind back to 1987… 16 years old, tough as old boots (or so I thought) a friend gave me a cassette and said “fast forward it to the second but last track and listen” …. The track being Bizarre love triangle, immediately something connected and the seed was sown,who was this? ,who were they?,what is this? who are they?……
www.neworderweb.net was conceived in 2009 and was originally a site called neworderinfoweb then neworderweb and finally www.neworderweb.net. The current www.neworderweb.net site is run by webmaster Steve Smith and is made in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England. My aim is to promote the fantastic music that New Order and their various side projects have produced over the years. The site and the forums are free to join and we look forward to you joining the debates on the various forum pages. The site is very much still a work in progress as there are literally thousands of items to add, so please bear with me – I will get there…. eventually!
I would like to thank everyone who has contributed items to the site and given me help and encouragement in getting the site finished.
With thanks to the following people (in no particular order)
Nick King, Rocket Mick, Shug Sludden, Momosawa Minchinori, Alistair Murray, Grant Williams, Colin Torr, John Montague.
to name but a few…..
