Wes Eisold covers NO classic at tQ's behest

Last week I was sat idly on the internet going through the excellent New Order Singularity website , enjoying Chromatics' cover of 'Ceremony' and reading Wes Eisold of Cold Cave speaking about his love of the Manchester group. I tweeted at Eisold asking if Cold Cave had ever covered New Order, he said they'd work on it and hey presto - you can listen to the band's version of 'Your Silent Face', above. Writing about New Order on the Singularity site, Eisold said that the band "is a gift that somehow makes you feel alone and not alone at the same time. That’s how I’ve carried them with me through my teens, twenties, thirties and however long I may grow. I’ve never known of another group that I’ve connected with so explicitly through the severe facets of life’s ups and downs. Sincerity is a trait you can’t fake." Read the rest of his words at the singularity site.
