My Music Monday

The last of the second banana series. 

Joy Division begat New Order, which begat Electronic. When Peter Hook left New Order, he also has performed with Revenge, Monaco, Freebass and Peter Hook & the Light. 

While Electronic had Bernard Sumner, New Order bandmates (and life mates) Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert formed the band, the aptly named, the Other Two.

There is nothing  revolutionary about their style. Some of the music, it almost note for note rehashed New Order - not that I'm complaining, as I do like the band. Gilbert takes lead vocals and she's ok, but she is not the strongest singer. 

Songs like this one, "New Horizons" is good for background or driving music. do have to wait almost a minute to get to vocals though.
