Posted by DjPaulT on January 27th, 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

“Bizarre Love Triangle” is a song by the English band New Order, released as a single in 1986 from their fourth studio album, Brotherhood (1986), which reached the top five on the US Hot Dance Music/Club Play Singles chart, and No. 5 on the Australian ARIA Charts (No. 1 on the Victoria state chart) in March 1987.

It failed to make the top 40 in either the United Kingdom (only reaching No. 56) or the US Billboard Hot 100. In the United States, the song also reached the eighth position on the Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales chart, but failed to chart on the Hot 100 during its original 1986 release. However, a new mix included on the The Best of New Order was released in 1994 and finally made a brief appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 in the number 98 position in 1995.

In 2004 the song was ranked number 201 in Rolling Stone’s “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”.

“I Don’t Care” is also known as “Bizarre Dub Triangle”.

    LOOOOOOOVE IT, Paulie.

    My absolute favourite as regards New Order. Yeah, it´s poppy but still with a bit of new orderly roughness. Such a great song. Funny: I listened to it not twenty minutes ago, sitting in front of my computer. Right now I am reworking The Beach to become a short dub mix.

    Thank you, Paul!

    PAUL!!!

    I absolutely swoon when you give us music containing edits done by The Latin Rascals. Your site is home to many of these incredible and time consuming cut and splice techniques which dominated so much of the music in the 1980’s. Whether it was the ‘Rascals or Omar Santana, I relish the multi-edit. And here you have given us a wonderful example of Tony and Albert’s craft. Wow, the flip-side’s “Bizarre Dub Triangle” is a beat-fanatic’s delight. Shep Pettibone did an awesome remix of the New Order song, but those edits are the shooting-stars of the track. They are like “aural orgasms!” I’m already panting, counting down the minutes left of work before going home and preparing to bliss-out over your meticulous rip!! You and your work is sublime and thank you Paul for being a huge “Edit-Head” like myself. You are such a gift!!

    Have a gr-gr-great weekend!!!!!

    Jeff

    Love the New Order records Paul, always catchy lyrics and some great mixes by Shep Pettibone and The Latin Rascals (who did a fab remix on Duran Duran’s Notorious).
    The back of the cover reminds me of the Pet Shop Boys style sleeves (Disco).
    Blue Monday has always been my favourite and World (The Price Of Love).
    Have you got anymore Pet Shop Boys 12″, they had some fantastic extended versions.
    New Order singer and guitarist Bernard Sumner formed another band called Electronic, with Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr and PSB’s Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe. Electronic’s Get the Message was a excellent single.
    Another great post Thank You.

    This New Order track is a personal favorite, and is a big hit in my book. I do love seeing the occasional big well known 80’s tracks pop up on here. I look forward to hearing these versions of ‘Bizarre Love Triangle”, and if the shorter version is the one I am thinking it is then I am so excited to hear this on vinyl. Other well known tracks I’d love to see on here are Duran Duran’s “Hungry Like The Wolf” and Depeche Mode’s “People Are People”, but I have held off on making requests until I get paid and donate you some money, but for now I’d just like to say thanks for these wonderful selections Paul. Your additions on here do add an element of surprise. Always exciting!

    Wow, what a week. I remember when I bought this record, being slightly disappointed when “I don’t Care” turned out to be a dub version…. still you can’t really go wrong with this one. Classic 80’s party staple. If you still can’t get enough of this song, there is also the particularly nice alternate recording featured on the Married to The Mob soundtrack. It’s nice to see you have more New Order PSB and Electronic…. I wish records like this were still being released today.

  15. memoryboy Says:

    Thank you Paul. No matter what you post, it’s always exciting for me, even the less-known or College-Radio stuff is exciting for me to hear for the first time or re-discover.

  17. Seb Says:

    Just a little trivia: In the UK it’s called Bizarre Dub Triangle, and in the US I Don’t Care Dub. Legend is that when the master tapes arrived to America from Factory Records in the UK weren’t labeled. People from the american label phoned the band’s manager, Rob Gretton, to ask for the proper name of the song. He just answered “It’s the “I don’t f*****g care dub” and just hang, and the name stick like inside joke…

    Hi Seb, thanks for sharing that trivia – I hadn’t heard this one before but I can truly imagine that this story is 100% correct. I loved it how they presented Rob Gretton in the ‘Control’ movie, he seemed to always come up with a witty line 🙂

    It would be great if Anton Corbijn would film in a couple of years “Technique” the New Order story, don’t you think so?

    Fabulous mixes, in my ears always was a classic, just as a few other singles from New Order are, nobody mentioned True Faith!

    I don’t Care At 5:51 it seems different from what I know and have. It seems to jump.
    Sorry if not.
    Thank you, Paul.
