Released:
Label: London Records
New Order finally went fully electronic on 1989's Technique, recorded at great expense to the label (and, infamously, to the band members' livers) on the island of Ibiza in the first rush of acid house. The lush guitars and high-necked bass melodies are folded into dense nests of synth pads and pounding drum machines; indie anthems like "Dream Attack" meet the jittery house of "Round & Round." High points on this 2008 reissue include Steve "Silk" Hurley's Chicago-styled remix of "Fine Time" and "MTO," a clattering predecessor of tribal techno.
