Sumner and Morris say "New Order Yes!", Hook says "New Order No!"

This divorce is getting ugly faster than Brit and K-Fed …

The New Order breakup/reunion/breakup saga continues!

Peter Hook issued a statement on his myspace page saying that he will take Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris to court if they try to use the name "New Order" for a band that doesn't feature Peter Hook. Sounds like he's none too pleased with the other 2/3rds of New Order saying they will continue on without his basslines and he ain't taking it anymore!

And just to remind us of better days, here's a "live" performance of "Regret" by New Order featuring the cast of Baywatch!
