Watch: New Order’s 90-minute ‘Decades’ documentary and concert film surfaces online

The concert film/documentary “New Order: Decades” — chronicling the group’s “So It Goes…” synth-orchestra collaboration with artist Liam Gillick — was broadcast last month on the U.K.’s Sky Arts television network, and finally has surfaced online for the rest of the world to see.

Directed by Mike Christie, the 90-minute film — which you can watch in full below, via the …Hang the DJ blog — follows New Order’s preparations to re-stage the “So It Goes…” concert, originally performed five times during 2017’s Manchester International Festival, in Turin, Italy, earlier this year. The 2017 concerts found New Order backed by a 12-piece synth orchestra, performing a set that included six songs not played live since the 1980s and early ’90s ,and other rarities.

The film features live performances and interviews with Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert and the rest of the current lineup, but not departed bassist Peter Hook, who is relegated to old footage.

  1. Well, that didn’t last long. It’s already been taken down.

  2. Watched about 20 minutes of it yesterday morning before starting my day — it was cool. Too bad it’s down.
