Bad Lieutenant is a new project from Bernard Sumner of New Order/Joy Division/Electronic fame and also features Alex James (Blur) and Stephen Morris (New Order/Joy Division) on several recordings. If you're like me you probably grew up listening to these bands and will be excited about this new release. I know I am! I managed to snag a copy of their debut album 'Never Cry Another Tear' and it is everything you would expect from these living legends. Graceful melodic guitar rock with a pinch of electronics for the 21st century. Fans of New Order and Electronic will not be disappointed. I can't post a track, but they have a video for their first single 'Sink or Swim' that is pretty sweet. The album is out now. You can preview/purchase the album on amazon.
Long live Bernard and his trademark delivery. 30 years on and I still love him!
P.S. Bad Lieutenant are also coming to do a limited US Tour in NY and Chicago! I hear you can expect to hear New Order and Joy Division tracks at the show! If you can catch them with The Pixies I'd go see those. What an amazing line-up! Two living legends on one incredible night!
