Daily Dose Pick: Bad Lieutenant


After finding fame in both Joy Division and New Order, Bernard Sumner returns with a new band, named after Harvey Keitel’s most controversial film.

The frontman is joined by fellow vocalist Jake Evans for the project, which sees them sharing lead vocal duties. The result is a combination of classic New Order sounds and more modern English mood-rock, most notably that of fellow Northerners Doves. Contributors to the band’s debut album, Never Cry Another Tear, also include New Order’s Stephen Morris and Blur’s Alex James.
