Want to Feel Old?



New Order's "Blue Monday" is 30 years old today. I'm going to go sit down for a sec.

And I still have that 12" single from when I originally bought it from Tower Records - Sunset Blvd.

That kick drum pattern seems so quaint now, but it blue my mind when I first heard it.

Oh hell yeah! This and Confusion - two of the frist tracks that had what I considered at the time to be realistic sounding drum machines. I still listen to this from time to time.

It really was an amazing track when it came out and it's held up well. It was such a huge influence on so much electronic music! So many people asked me to program stuff like that over the years.

I had that moment two days after NIN Broken turned twenty. Ugh.
