WEDNESDAY CLUB - New Order - 'Age of Consent'

New Order - 'Age of Consent' (1982)

How do you follow Joy Division, the simple answer is, New Order. Their first album without Ian was 'patchy' but with enough brilliance, to still await their second offering. The second album ' Power, Corruption and Lies' hit the mark 'big time' and almost defined the sound of the 80's, synths were now the all the rage. There are many outstanding tracks on the album (Your silent Face) but the stand out track is for sure 'Age of Consent' . I first played the song to my Son & Daughter from the album, 'New Order, Live at the BBC 1993' and they loved the version....there is a great line, when Bernard uses the ' F' word and it sounds just right.....they were so disappointed when the original did not have that '4' letter word' .....  'kids'.
Great song (one of my favourites) and a great album.

I did try to find the BBC version, but alas!! If you want to hear it, let me know...we can sort it out.

Absolutely fantastic track, I've got to admit I was a little disappointed when I realised there was no swearing in the original. It Just made us Bernard Sumner seem a little bit naughty.
