Stream: Destroyer covers New Order for Mojo’s ‘Power, Corruption & Lies’ tribute

The full-album tribute is becoming de rigueur for British music magazines, and the latest to receive the treatment is New Order’s 1983 classic Power, Corruption & Lies. The new issue of Mojo features the newly reunited, Peter Hook-less band on the cover, plus a CD featuring a track-by-track cover of the album and its accompanying singles and B-sides.

Below, you can stream the first cut to emerge online, Destroyer — aka Dan Bejar of the New Pornographers — rambling through the album’s closer, “Leave Me Alone.” Other artists featured on the disc include The Golden Filter (“Age of Consent”), Fujiya & Miyagi (“Your Silent Face”) and Biosphere (“Blue Monday”). The full tracklist is reproduced below, as well.

UPDATE 1/3/12: Mojo has posted 30-second samples of each track, which you can hear below.

    Nice to see this coming out. For the sake of the fans and even though Hooky is an A-hole, they don’t have to talk to him- just play with him once a night. It’s not quite New Order without him.

  2. Weak versions of great songs. Someone better look up the definition of “Tribute”.

  3. Bejar nailed it. No surprise.

  4. I miss Hooky; it’s the alchemy but I do wish he’d STFU

  5. Hooky Must feel f’ckin isolated these days, when the other 3 are continuing. Shame people can’t just get along even if its just for the love of the music.

    I’m kinda enjoying this Mojo release. Errors ‘The Village’ & Fujiya & Miyagi ‘Your Silent Face’ are neat, the musics held up extremely well, forgot how much I loved New Order.
