Morphine: “We treat every tour as the last

No matter how much I (like, by the way, many others) love Morphine’s music, it was not a group from which anyone would expect a contract with a major record label. There are too many factors against: the drug in the title, gloomy sound, lyrics similar to the texts of hipsters, a strange set of instruments (drums, saxophone-baritone and two-string bass … damn it, two-string).

Everyone almost came to terms with the fact that, over the past 35 years, New Order played only a couple of concerts with hits that everyone heard for 100 laps, which means that they will someday slowly and quietly disappear. However, with their new album “Music Complete”, the group has proven what else may surprise.

Graphic artist Peter Savill did something exceptional for the history of music: in 1983 he created an illustration for a maxi single, which later sold over 10 million copies and was destined to become a milestone in the history of electronic music. However, his design was so expensive that the single was a financial disaster. The record in question is the “Blue Monday” New Order. Recently, Savill again took Continue reading
