New Order, one of my favorite bands of the 80s and 90s, announced their breakup, May 9, 2007. Saw them twice in Miami, first time in 1985 and then with 5-month-pregnant wife in 1989. Hooky's bass lines really kept the fetus active that night. A few months later, newborn daughter responded when I played the Substance CD. Here's New Order in their prime, with "The Perfect Kiss."
