Mission of Burma is featured this month with a killer version of the instrumental "Tremelo". The live video was filmed at the Underground Club in Boston, 1980. MOB opened up for The Cure that night on the second stop of the first Cure American tour. You can see "Tremelo" here
Also added to the Archive Portal is New Order with a live video shot in Barcelona Spain, 1984. "Blue Monday" was one of New Orders better electronic efforts post Ian Curtis and Joy Division.
