Was Electronic a super group? I can’t see why not. It was a collaboration between Bernard Sumner (Joy Division, New Order) and Johnny Marr (The Smiths, The The, The Pretenders and much later, Modest Mouse) with occasional help from friends like Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys and Anne Dudley of the Art of Noise. This single—released 18 months before Electronic’s self-titled debut album in 1991—was an immediate critical and commercial hit on both sides of the Atlantic. I still get chills from that super-smooth opening bass line.
