Barney is back. After the ugly break up of New Order, Bernard Sumner has teamed up with Phil Cunningham and Jake Evans as Bad Lieutenant. Phil was in the last version of New Order as keyboardist Gillian Gilbert's replacement, and was also a member of '90s Britpoppers Marion. Their album Never Cry Another Tear is out on October 5 and also features collaborations with New Order drummer Stephen Morris and Blur bassist Alex James. Sink Or Swim is the band's debut single. My thoughts - it is not too far removed from the New Order style of mid-tempo rocker. It is definitely not dance-y, and keyboards are minimal. It has lots of strummy guitar and very Barney vocals. As a fan I have to say I find it mildly entertaining, and look forward to hearing the rest of the album.
