Bad Lieutenant - Sink or Swim

What with the much needed demise of New Order last year, Bernard Sumner has a new project in the shape of Bad Lieutenant, who are basically Bernard, Phil Cunningham - latter day New Order member, and some other bloke. On this, their debut single "Sink Or Swim", they are joined by Stephen Morris, the fantastic drummer from New Order/Joy Division. So what it all boils down to is, that this is basically New Order without Peter Hook. The result is New Order late period/album track type-stuff. Meaning, that it's quite good and very much how you would expect it to sound. Quite good.

A debut album is due in October, but meanwhile here is the video for the single. I wouldn't get too excited.
