A SET-LIST OF 'SUBSTANCE'

Photo: Peter Hook / Twitter



A few minutes ago Peter Hook Tweeted a photo of the set-list from last night's gig ( at The Orange Peel, Asheville, North Carolina ).

'Substance' is the title of both NEW ORDER and JOY DIVISION's landmark compilation albums, ( released August 1987 and July 1988 respectively ), and so the above list is inevitably a mouth-watering prospect for fans of both bands.

Here at Future-Rocker, we love how Hooky has become a confident and commanding frontman and lead singer, and we definitely appreciate the rocking live versions of his bands' classic songs.

BRAND-NEW 'GHOST IN THE SHELL' CLIP : 'SHELLING SEQUENCE'!


Clip soundtrack composer: Kenji Kawai

ASH THORP TEASES LOST BOY PROJECT!

''...an ambitious sci-fi concept heavily influenced by the American action classics and Japanese samurai films''

A perennial favourite of FUTURE-ROCKER, movie design guru Ash Thorp teases us with a Twitter countdown to a full-length clip of his long-time pet project LOST BOY. With help from regular collaborator Anthony Scott Burns ( who is also synthwave maestro PILOTPRIEST ), the team will unveil the full 'concept clip' twenty-four hours from now.


SCANDROID TEASES FORTHCOMING TEARS FOR FEARS COVER!

A hit on the global electronic charts within days of its release, SCANDROID's debut album proves there is an insatiable demand for eighties-influenced music. A thrilling blend of rock and new wave, the sound of multi-instrumentalist Klayton's current project perfectly captures the need for a cyberpunk soundtrack in these increasingly dystopian times.

We at Future-Rocker are confidently predicting that SCANDROID could be even bigger than his main band, the highly acclaimed CELLDWELLER.

Here's a teaser clip of the new promo, a cover of Tears For Fears 1985 hit, 'Shout'. The full video will be released next week.



CLINT MANSELL TO SCORE GHOST IN THE SHELL SOUNDTRACK!

Clint Mansell, former band leader of West Midlands UK 80s alt-rockers POP WILL EAT ITSELF, is scoring the new Scarlett Johansson sci-fi action vehicle GHOST IN THE SHELL, according to director Rupert Sanders ( Snow White and the Huntsman ).

Mansell is already established in niche movie-making by being Darron Aronofsky's go-to guy, having notched up REQUIEM FOR A DREAM, THE FOUNTAIN, THE WRESTLER and BLACK SWAN for the celebrated art-house director.

Mansell's former band ( also known as PWEI ) were notable for their amalgam of cut-and-paste sample-heavy dance rock, that acknowledged an eclectic range of influences from Run DMC, to AC/DC and Led Zeppelin, also ushering-in early-90s Crusty and mid-90s Industrial music. They are arguably a heavy influence on post-millennial bands such as PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING.

Though having scored a couple of big studio movies in the past ( the entirely forgettable SAHARA and DOOM ), GHOST IN THE SHELL will be the first Mansell-scored movie where his pedigree will mesh superbly with the subject matter, in what is hoped to be a huge blockbuster movie.

1ST FULL TRAILER: 2017's GHOST IN THE SHELL!



With Marvel Studios' hugely successful DOCTOR STRANGE comic adaptation now in the rear-view mirror, it feels like there's some room for Paramount to unveil the trailer for their highly-anticipated GHOST IN THE SHELL live-action movie.

Starring Scarlett Johansson, plus Juliette Binoche and Takeshi Kitano, GHOST IN THE SHELL already has a built-in cult following from the acclaimed manga comics and numerous animated movies. Indeed, it is hoped to be a huge break-out movie, following as it does, in the wake of two notable Johansson indie sci-fi films ( LUCY, and UNDER THE SKIN ) plus her ongoing and very popular appearances as Black Widow in MARVEL'S AVENGERS franchise juggernaut.

That it is the first major comic-book movie in the current era that is not from either Marvel or DC, can only heighten the anticipation, while at the same time capitalising on the seemingly-endless contemporary demand for adapted comic properties.


Ghost In The Shell opens on March 31st, 2017.
