Bernard Receives Lifetime Achievement Award at O2 Silver Clefs

Bernard Receives Lifetime Achievement Award at O2 Silver Clefs

Today, Bernard received the Integro Outstanding Achievement Award at the 2019 O2 
Silver Clef Awards in aid of music therapy chairty Nordoff Robbins. He follows artists such as Robert Plant, Blondie and Patti Smith who have all been presented with the award in recent years. He was presented the award at London's Grosvenor House by The Chemical Brothers.

 Bernard spoke on the blue carpet before receiving the award about the work of the charity, which you view here.

About Nordoff Robbins

Music has a power unlike anything else. From your earliest moments on earth, before you are even born, you begin a powerful relationship with music. The first sound you hear is the soothing rhythm of your mother’s heartbeat.

So when a parent comes to us with a child who’s never spoken, or when a family comes to us because their mother is isolated by her dementia, we use music with the ambition to enhance and improve their lives.

Our music therapists are trained to tune into each movement, reaction and expression of the people they’re working with. They can then adapt their approach and the music they’re playing to skilfully unlock potential and inspire positive emotions and interactions.

It’s not easy, but in the expert hands of our therapists, music can break through where words can’t. This isn’t just what we believe. It’s what we’ve witnessed.

Unknown Pleasures at 40

Unknown Pleasures at 40

2019 is the 40th anniversary of the release of the acclaimed Joy Division album ‘Unknown Pleasures’. An album that was the sound of the future when it was released in 1979, and an album that sounds as relevant, urgent and ‘from the future’ here and now.

One of the most seminal albums to be recorded, Joy Division’s 'Unknown Pleasures' has influenced countless creative minds over the years,and continues to be an instructive legacy that sees no end. The anniversary itself has been commemorated with a series of celebrations in Manchester and across the world over the past week.

The album was re-released as an LP last Friday pressed on 180g ruby red vinyl with an alternative white cover designed by iconic Factory Records designer Peter Saville, as he had originally intended. Unknown Pleasures failed to chart upon its original release in the UK and later peaked at number 71, in August 1980, shortly after the death of lead singer Ian Curtis. 40 years on Unknown Pleasures now sits at number 5 in the Official UK Album Chart. You can order your copy here.

The anniversary began on Friday with a special show on BBC Radio 6 Music, with Mary-Anne Hobbs featuring interviews with the band, plus Peter Saville and Jon Savage. The show also included a full playblack of the album, played from Mary-Anne's original vinyl copy. Listen back to the show on BBC Sounds.

Manchester saw a host of celebrations over the weekend, including limited edition Unknown Pleasures:40 T-Shirts being handed out to fans in the city across in three different locations; Spinningfields, Exchange Square and Tony Wilson Place. Despite the wind, downpour and of course sunshine in the space of 2 hours all of the  t-shirts were in the hands of fans, who came out in their thousands.

If you are lucky enough to receive a t-shirt or would like to support in anyway, please donate to The Calm Zone and/or Big Change MCR and reference 'Joy Division' at your donation. These are charities chosen directly by the family and members of Joy Division in honour of Ian.

Furthermore, Saturday evening also saw Manchester celebrate the 40th anniversary by projecting the album cover on to Manchester Town Hall, St Peters Square and West Tower in Deansgate Square, to the acclaim of fans across the city.

Unknown Pleasures: Reimagine has also been announced.Working together with the band, their visual coordinator Warren Jackson has commissioned 10 new films, one for each track on the album, which will present a filmic re-imagining of the music in 2019. 

Collaborating with established artists and directors as well as up-and-coming filmmakers, the clips are created by those for whom Joy Division – and the album ‘Unknown Pleasures’ – has provided sense and form and framing – a fractured influence on their own insights, art and process. 

The series of videos - soundtracked by the original Joy Division recordings - will be released over the course of 2019 beginning in June. 

The first video is I Remember Nothing – Directors (Helgi and Hörður)– Watch HERE

 

Finally, Goodhood have teamed up with Factory Records' iconic art director Peter Saville, celebrating the 40th anniversary of Joy Division’s seminal 1979 album Unknown Pleasures.

The highly limited 13-piece collection is based on a lesser known piece of pop-trivia: the album’s classic black sleeve – one of the most iconic designs in popular music – was originally intended to be white with black pulsar waves. So, in recognition of this, we have produced a collaborative capsule collection that spans apparel, homeware, accessories and lifestyle goods, all adopting an ‘inverse’ colour scheme.

As well as Peter Saville and Joy Division, we have also joined forces with a number of our favourite brands – including Universal Works, YMC, Stepney Workers Club, Tom Wood & Big Love Records – to create a diverse range that truly celebrates Saville’s iconic design.

The collection launches on June 28th at 11am – Enter for the chance to purchase via the Goodhood launches platform now. Join us in store on Thursday 27th June, from 6.30-8.30pm where we will be hosting an exclusive launch party to celebrate the release of the project. As well as the opportunity to purchase the collection on the evening - 12 hours before the online release, there also will be free beers courtesy of Old Blue Last. Find out more here.
