Artefact

Here is the pic sleeve for the first Gerry & The Holograms 7". It a brilliant record, piss-take or not. One of my all time top 10 favourite records. Great synth/vocoder?/wonky, diy sludge. I've heard this "New Order nicked the riff" before but its such a basic chord progression that anyone armed with a new synth might churn it out. Has anyone from New Order confirmed that they were into this?

I believe Frank Zappa picked this as one of his all time favourites on a BBC radio prog in the 80s - Radio 1 possibly
