It's definitely very sinus related for me.
Oh yeah.  I've been dealing with a on again/off again head cold.  The liquid in the inner ear makes me wake up like I'm back at the Amboy Dukes concert.
So, I'm a "Sr Member", huh?  In June it's SENIOR DISCOUNT TIME!!!

Oh,New Order.Amazing band but their live sound was renowned for being bad.Saw them in 82,85,88,2001.
Ear plugs,it is the only way to see live audio but go for the pro custom molds like ER-15s from Westone.

Agreed about New Order.  I saw them in the late 80s and it was fun, but the performance was sloppy and the sound was distorted.  Peter Hook was unbelievably wasted, Gillian Gilbert looked like somebody's great aunt standing behind the keyboards, Stephen Morris seemed to be on speed or something, and Barney's vocals were a bit haphazard.  Still, I'm glad I saw them when I had the chance.

Also saw New Order in Toronto the late 80s (I think) and was not impressed: uninspired, poor sound, etc...

Years later I read an interview where they declared that show as their worst ever,
as they had big technical difficulties before they even started.

I remember having enjoyed the opening act though. Magic Dragon, I think.

Here's to hearing... Cheers!

Scott,I saw New Order in TO in 85 near the airport for the Low Life tour.A Certain Ratio opened.I read the same review.Quite awful,pretty much what Mike said but on record,they are on of my favorites.Temptation is in my top 5 songs ever.Check out Barneys new band-Bad Lieutenant,not my thing but a few decent tracks.
PS- just came back from one of my installs in a club,20 minutes there and my ears are ringing,just too loud but the kids love it and the DJs just keep pushing the levels up.I got it locked down with compressors and limiters but the client says louder,so what can you do.
