Box De Thursday

Josh’s Big Box O CDs today featured a side project of New Order’s bassist Peter Hook…that sounds exactly like New Order. Monaco put out two albums, though only one is readily available - Music For Pleasure. Hook plays bass on the album, and David Potts (sounding uncannily like N.O. singer Bernard Sumner) was the singer. In the absence of a new New Order album, the similar-sounding Monaco sold over half a million albums. In 2007 there is talk of perhaps some new material and re-mastered and re-released older stuff. Hook and Potts got back on stage in March of this year playing 2 New Order, 2 Monaco, and 2 Joy Division songs. The song we played, and the biggest single from the band was What Do You Want From Me?
