Without being puritanical, it probably lead to Gretton's and Wilson's early deaths, several marriage and family break ups, reckless business decisions (Fac & Hac), unprofessional live performances (ok it was funny at the time). It's the strangest business when you're given as much drink as you want before performing then paid as well.

I'm trying to remember which musician said he'd never seen so many drugs as back stage at New Order (USA tours). Lemmy?

OK, I'll get my slippers now.



John Lydon said on their tour together (USA 1989) that "New Order take more drugs than the Grateful Dead".

I’m guessing his 1980s was far more fun than mine.

He should own that. I know I would.



Thought it was worth an upload to Yous Tubs so

I'm struggling to see anything that's 50% off. Have I misunderstood?

Scroll right down to bottom and click on Black Friday sale or try this Link

Edit: oh actually I can only see a few items that are 50% off. But the advert does say “Up” to 50% off.So not all then. In fact not much at all is 50% off.


Oh that reminds me, must get some of those PCL Xmas tree decorations. I keep thinking about getting some each year but never get round to it.

I think that was 1989, The Monsters Of Alternative Rock: PIL, New Order, Sugarpubes. My girlfriend's uncle was the sound engineer. Not the shit one.
It always cracks me up how New Order go on about how many drugs they took and how many awesome influences they cite - then they come up with shite like Liar.

Wacky. Clicked on the thread and saw my post at the top of the page. Recognized my mistake straight away and edited it. Then scolled down to see you calling me out Black eye Happy .

Sometimes you can be funny, Monkhouse.

I am fucking hilarious. And the people who disagree are always people who'd rather have their eyes gouged out than get up on stage themselves.
1989 was an awesome year for alternative music. Top albums from PIL, New Order, Sugarpubes, Siouxsie, Depeche and the Cure. And in the mainstrean, Macca, whose solo career is more up and down than my mother outside a church, finally hit it with Flowers in the Dirt and his first worldwide tour in a decade. What more do you want, apart from a Spice Girl and a shower attachment?

The board would be a little more dull without you, Michael.

Now don’t let it go to your head (ooh-er, Missus).

Yeah agree, keeps us grounded with our obsessions. Nice to get an alternative take on things.

No more praise though, he’s had enough now. In fact we need someone to come on to say what a wanker he is to balance things up!
