The New Order 1988 Demo cassette surfaced online as mp3s but six months or ago someone posted the lossless files on Dime A Dozen. The cassette is an interesting peek into New Order’s songwriting process. It includes various takes of “Technique” era recordings along with quite a few tracks of Peter Hook playing bass lines along with early versions of the songs. Some of the tracks are a little boring, but it’s fun to see where the songs started before they were finished off.

  1. Great version of “Dream Attack” there, i love Hooky’s bass. I’ve known of these demos for years now but this is the first time i’ve actually heard a track from them, any chance of posting some more of these demos?
