“Peter Hook & The Light deliver these songs better than the current line-up of New Order” - Drowned In Sound
Released in 1987, New Order's Substance was originally conceived as a way for Factory Records boss, Tony Wilson, to play the New Order singles on the CD player of his new Jaguar car. Substance became Factory Records’ 200th release and remains the best selling New Order album.
Running from "Ceremony" in 1981 up to "True Faith" in 1987 the set takes in the high points of New Order's catalogue, including “Blue Monday”, "Bizarre Love Triangle", "Temptation", "True Faith", "The Perfect Kiss" to name a few
"New Order brought the underground dance sounds of the US to the indie mainstream making them one of the most significant groups ever" - BBC Music
Released in 1988, Joy Division's Substance features all the singles that didn’t appear on the Joy Division albums Unknown Pleasures and Closer, such as "Love Will Tear Us Apart", "Transmission", and "Atmosphere". Plus their b-sides, tracks from their EP "An Ideal For Living" and a Factory Records sampler.
Factory Records' 250th release, it begins with "Warsaw" and takes in the development of the band through "Digital" and "Dead Souls" to the band's final tracks.
