Thread: String Quartet tribute to New Order/Joy Division

  1. #1


    Agree? Yes No

    Default String Quartet tribute to New Order/Joy Division

    I didn't know this existed until I heard their version of Blue Monday on the radio yesterday. Does anyone here have this cd?

    Here is the link on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...roduct-details

    Hmm. Seems to be a trend to do these quartet tributes.

    So far the only one I've liked was the Balanescu Quartet's "Reposessed" which featured 4 Kraftwerk songs. The quartet tribute to the Smiths was awful. The problem with most of them is that the arrangements always reduce the song to sounding like elevator music.

    Has anyone heard a band called Polyphonic Spree (I think that's the name anyway), there's about 20 in the band. They mix orchestral with a rock style, their vocalist has a Michael Stipe vibe going on. I'm very impressed with their sound.

    There is also Kraftwerk remake by Terre Thaemlitz - die roboter rubato. Completely on piano
