New Order/Joy Division - In A Lonely place


TONE DEATH (an old punk never dies)
A Jeddah Boy!

NEW ORDER - In a Lonely Place 

This is a bit of a strange one. A School friend of Flycasual is now part of a band  Mustang.  Check out our Tracks of the Week. They are a Heavy Metal band.  I have know Chris as a kid and he does look the part, even when he was 2 (so did his dad by the way, the late great Clem).  After a few San Miguel's I decides to write a song for them without really knowing their Psych. Which is a bit unfair to them and to me, I suppose. But I was excited about my little challenge.

The idea came very quickly and I was trying to think heavy metal but as Flycasual said to me when I showed him, it leaned towards Punk. Yeah!I suppose it does. But what the hell, I enjoyed it. In fact the next day when walking the dogs I thought of 2 more verses. In my opinion the idea is pretty good, but it needs a good bit of work. A good bit.

Hey! lads if you want some more I am here!

Now I am on a roll, I have been trying for the past few months to think of a theme for a Christmas song and I have just come up with exactly what I want, it was not that easy.  Well there is money to be made there and it would be great to leave some legacy for the kids. I am serious about this, I will let you know how I progress. I only have the idea now to do it!! But it is a good idea!!

Hey! SFW, I may call on you for this one.

Why In a Lonely Place?, well I  for a sneaky pint today and I heard it on the pub radio. I was in shock, but I was flooded with memories. ! It was good enough for me!

Here it is Tone Death  in all its bollocks!

You have a definite Christmas hit on your hands there, Old Pa! Do you have a tune in mind?

Thanks for reminding us of JD's early take of 'In A Lonely Place'.

BTW, on the subject of JD, they feature in all their sartorial grace in my own latest post.

SB - Sorry about this...I have this idea for a Christmas song...I don't think that one....but hold on! it could work.
Watching the football and then going to bed. If I can't make it, then you know my baby will!

Definitely more Angelic Upstarts than Anthrax, but, hey, perhaps Mustang need to broaden their musical palette!
Good to hear 'In a Lonely Place' again.

I have never heard 'In a Lonely Place' before. Absolutely fantastic, it doesn't get much darker than this. I thought New Order's version was gloom but Joy Division's takes it to hell and back. As for Tone Death, I think Johnny Rotten would definitely like it.
