The Perfect Kiss

Certified rock legends New Order are widely known as one of the most distinctive and definitive outfits that successfully emerged from the post-punk scene, and the alternative-rock pioneers who managed to successfully blend visceral rock firepower and flighty dance aesthetics into a seamless whole, and subsequently, forged a new rock sub-genre, which influenced numerous like-minded bands who came in their wake. However, less known is New Order's propensity and ability to put on one hell of a live show, wowing critics and fans alike with their peerless performance aesthetics, almost telepathic band interplay, and magnetically droll onstage presences. This is all the more remarkable, given their improbable everyday appearances and absolute lack of any significant concert theatrics. Check out the band's absolutely devastating and jaw-droppingly amazing live take on synth-pop magnum opus 'The Perfect Kiss', captured at a gig at the O2 Academy Glasgow in October 2006.
