BBC 6 Music are focusing on the Chemical Brothers Surrender album this weekend (is someone at 6 Music getting kickbacks?) See details here.

Anyway during an interview special with Lauren Laverne last night they were talking about "the music that's meant the most to them over two decades" and at 6.50 they talk about working with Bernard on OOC. "He sent us tapes and tapes of guitar parts and vocal ideas". See this is what I wanted them to add to the forthcoming box set (out in 2 weeks), as mentioned in the 21 Mins Of OOC thread. Missed opportunity! Bernard had special gold plated guitar lead demands. His wine needs weren't met by Bernondsey... (The Chems used to record at Orinoco studios just off London's Old Kent Road). I didn''t realise Bernard was already big into wine in '99. Then Lauren plays their NO tune of choice, EGG. After that, a clip from an old interview where they discuss Bernard knocking at the front door of their student house in Manchester (before they were the Chems) and asking if there was a party on. And then back to the present, they presented Bernard (at his request) with an award at Nordoff Robbins, and he proceeded to roast them. And then they discuss going to the Hacienda.

EDIT: I can't find any footage of the Nordoff Robbins thing. Shame. Here's a photo instead.

Yes i caught maybe the second half of the Lauren Laverne show with Tom and Ed so i missed the stuff about Bernard, will listen on catch up.Been playing the Nemone show part of the Chems 6 Music evening.Some great stuff i hadn't listened to for years like their remix of Primal Scream's Swastika Eyes.Used to love caning that remix in the car back in 2000.Also their mix aired on Nemone's show is pretty good (previously aired some years back?).Had it on while doing homemade Pizza.There's also from 6 Music last night the Chems at Glastonbury 2000 but haven't listened yet.

Another funny tale about Bernard that Tom & Ed mentioned in another interview sometime back on something is about when the Chemical Brothers played an outdoor gig somewhere not far from where Bernard lives and he texted them asking them to turn the noise down as he was trying to watch telly.

Well only another few weeks now til 29th Nov when i go to see Chemical Brothers at Birmingham NEC or whatever its called now .It's taken a bloody age to come around since i bought the tickets.

That was Blue Dot 2018! Bernard would never make any noise at that festival, would he? Cheeky f**ker! LoL

30 mins or so of Factory Records, JD, NO etc. on Marc Riley's show today.

Listen here (last 30 mins of show):

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m000b5mc

PS As usual, I've downloaded the show as mp3 and cut the bit out that relates to Factory. If anyone wants it, just shout.

Kojima is a HUGE JD/NO fan. I've seen him wear shirts with the artwork for Technique, Music Complete, Unknown Pleasures, etc.

I think Elegia was used in one of the Metal Gear Solid games too.

Yep - it was certainly used in the Metal Gear Solid V trailer (not sure about the game itself).


It was funny when, after it was used In ‘Stranger Things’, Metal Gear Solid fans getting outraged that they’d pinched ‘their’ song.

I guess it’s all good exposure for the band.

Crikey I’ve just realised today that the show is at Birmingham Arena ( used to be called the NIA) in Brum City Centre, not Birmingham NEC ( concerts there are in a hangar now called Resorts Arena) . Could have been a disastrous night!

I remember going to the NIA for a record fair in the early 90s. I was collecting New Order 'cuttings' back then and bought a back issue of 'No. 1' magazine there. It was sealed so couldn't open it. Think it cost me about £6, so not cheap.

After leaving the Record Fair, I got outside the venue and decided to examine my various purchases. I opened the magazine to find that the New Order bit (a 'pin-up') had been removed from the centre pages and was missing. I tried to get back into the venue to complain but the bastards at the gate wouldn't let me back in.

So, that's my sole NIA experience. No New Order. It couldn't be further away from this thread title.
Maybe we should set up a thread entitled 'New Order missing thread?'. Big Grin

What a sickener.

Bought the Palatine box set from HMV Birmingham in the early 90s but it wasn’t until I was on the train home that I opened the box and the CDs weren’t in there. Got off the train at Coventry and went to HMV there and explained to them situation. After they phoned HMV Birmingham to check, they gave me the missing 4 CDs, problem sorted. True story dat.

A minor thing really, but the New Order cut that Lauren Lavern played on 6 music today (for T-shirt day, so a NO song was inevitable) was "Your Silent Face"

given the brief "play a new order song", how many stations would have gone with "Your Silent Face"? I mean, that's the 6 music difference right there

Great stuff.That's actually the second time YSF has been played on the station in the last few weeks, it was played on RadMac one recent weekend.Also, Every Little Counts was played on Lauren Laverne's show the other day.Part of a feature about songs where the singer has burst into laughter during the track.

YSF spotting? Let's see if I can up the ante.

Everyone here read Pulitzer prize winning novel The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt? Nah, me neither. It's only 784 pages long so maybe I'll knock it off one evening. Wink
It's been made into a film this year starring Ansel Elgort (Baby from Baby Driver - which was a blast BTW), Nicole Kidman, Luke Wilson, Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), Jeffrey Wright, Sarah Paulson and more. Cinematography by Roger Deakins - the best in the business.

The reviews have been harsh. Having not read the book, I don't know why. Some say it's over-long at 2.5 hours, but how was a 784 page book gonna be short? Anyway watching the film saved me reading the book, and I quite liked it!

At about 58 minutes our protagonist hops off the bus (as a kid) and he talks to a new school friend; a song fades up beneath them as they walk home: It's the intro to YSF. The whole intro - from the start. Then when the vox come in, the dialogue fades down, so we get Bernard's vox at full volume for the first verse.

The track fades down at around 1.49 into the song (using timing on the video below), it fades completely circa 2.10.

Then two minutes later, with some clever sound editing the track reappears. Not a fade-up but a re-start 4.04 mins into the song, and somehow it doesn't sound abrupt. It plays to about 4.21 and then (seamlessly) jumps back to the Hooky section at 1.42. It plays through to circa 1.58 when it fades it out for the final time.

Like the teenage me who didn't know that Elegia (or TLU) was in Pretty In Pink until I heard it in the cinema, I was kinda thrilled to hear YSF playing at full volume in a Hollywood film. I really should have grown out of this level of fanboy-ism by now.

I'm listening to Respectable by Mel & Kim, and one of the sisters started laughing literally as I read that sentence.

I’m too inebriated to offer constructive appraisal on the above comments (hey, it’s Saturday!).

However, I will offer a ‘YSF? Fuck, yeah!’ comment.
Because it is awesome. Obvs.

Listening to YSF now, and it just...sounds...magnificent.Smile

Let's get that PC&L box set released already. Can't wait!

Thanks for the heads-up on The Goldfinch. I'll try to catch it when it's online / on TV.

About a year ago I was ripping a load of CDs as stuff goes missing, or gets knocked about, when you move house. Found the In Session CD that I had somehow forgotten at the time. That version of YSF is even more stunning, couldn’t believe it. And I’m not usually a fan of “added twiddly bits” which is all my musical knowledge can describe it as. Worth having for that track alone
