I heard NewOrder for the first time in 1987 on radio in the era of TrueFaith. I really liked this song, I’d even recorded on tape. A few months later came out TouchedByTheHandOfGod and in spring 1988 a classmate gave me a copy of Substance. I was a little disappointed that TBTHOG was not on this disc. Listening to substance, I realized that I knew BM and BLT but I forgot that it was NewOrder. I bought the CD of Substance late 1988 when I was offered my first CD player for Christmas.
