if you refer to the story on the main page, they were not Sumners comments but Hook's and Morris'. I cant see how they are bothered. Why cant someone moan about not having a record deal. I am sure they asked about him releasing stuff and he replied that he had no record deal. I am sure they would if they had no deal. And about Mancunians hating Morrissey. There is a dvd out now that proves them wrong. In fact, Ealrs court review in The Netherlands 9 out of 10, New orderd new cd 3 out of 10. I rest my case.
Until I can read German, I am not so sure exactly what was said. How legit is that interpretation? I thought it was Peter Hook who had made the comments, BTW. So what anyhow?! I still love New Order. Just like I still love The Who, regardless of what the deal is with Pete Townsend.

I like New Order right BEHIND The Smiths (1) and The Cure (2). All I can think of is they are jealous. I'm still debating on going to Coachella next month, but if I don't all of you that are should start doing the Morrissey "football" chant right in front of Hook.
Don't you think they're just senstive because Morrissey always bashed their genre? And he also ripped Bernard, I recall. Back when Johnny Marr was f***ing around with Bernard in Electronic and what's-his-face's band The The, Morrissey stated something along the lines of: "I still think Johnny is a wonderful musician, I just wish he wouldn't waste it on such awful singers."
So, ya know, of course they're gonna talk shit back.
