Contest: Win a copy of ‘Ceremony: A New Order Tribute’ 2CD benefit compilation

'Ceremony: A New Order Tribute'

To mark the release of Ceremony: A New Order Tribute, the fine folks at the 24 Hour Service Station record label have provided Slicing Up Eyeballs with a copy of this excellent 2CD compilation to give away to one lucky reader.

Proceeds from the tribute — which features 33 New Order covers from electronic and indie acts such as Rabbit in the Moon and Detachments — will benefit the Salford Foundation Trust’s Tony Wilson Awards, established in memory of the late Factory Records co-founder.

To enter, simply leave a comment on the bottom of this post (and include a real e-mail address, because that’s how the winner will be notified). We’ll accept entries — from anywhere in the world — through noon Eastern time on Friday, March 5. Entrants also will be signed up for the 24 Hour Service Station e-mail list.

  37. robbie austin

    you got love technique

  38. the tribute cd sounds interesting. i love the detachments and it’ll be interesting to hear how they interpret new order.

  39. “Ceremony” is a great title for the collection – it’s probably their best song (or at least the most coverable).

  40. Comp looks cool! Sign me up!

  41. Great success?

  42. New Order, saw them in 2005 just before they split up, one of the most underrated bands ever !
    Can’t wait to find out what everyone did with the songs :D

  43. This is one of the best sites out there – thx for the daily updates!!

  44. Phil Bjorneberg

    Joy Division’s music led to many hours of intense listening and studying of lyrical content and New Order fuelled many college parties.

  45. I adore Joy Divison and New Order. Thanks for posting. :)

  46. scoty in salida

    New Order; timeless.

  47. love the site!

  48. Colton Rawlings

  51. Compilation looks great! Would love to be a winner!

  52. Count me in.

  53. Manchester/So much to answer for

  54. Poor Tony Wilson—I’ll always think of Steve Coogan’s ridiculous depiction when I think of him now. Still, glad to see he got the last laugh.
