DJ Yoda has done a Soundcloud Mix inspired by this. NO's Elegia appears at 46.19. But whose Elegia is that at 48.00 mins?

CNN has a doc series called "The Eighties" that included the NO clip from Veronica's Countdown from 1983. That's the one where Barney is asked if he is a computer programmer or musician and he replies neither,they're bank robbers. Funny clip if you haven't seen it. Especially when Stephen gets really technical when demonstrating their synths.

Just really excited to see ANY coverage of them in U.S. Of course the episode is mostly about Madonna, Prince, etc. it was nice to see that bit and especially using such obscure footage.

Oh I don't think I've watched that before.
The Dutch presenter is so "80's" with his sleeves rolled up on his jacket and his James-Spader-Pretty-In-Pink hair.
"Tell him you come from Macclesfield"
"I come from Macclesfield, I don't know anything about this stuff..."

^ Yeah that Veronica's Countdown clip is ace.Well the interview bit is.Classic New Order humour.I used to have the Blue Monday performance on VHS back in 1985 after a workmate had somehow obtained it though can't recall how as it was from Dutch tv.He tape to taped it for me but somehow over the years it got got taped over or lost can't recall which and i didn't see it again til i stumbled across it on YouTube a few years back.I think i started a thread on it at the time on this forum or the old one.Had never seen the interview bit before a few years ago.It's better than the BM performance.

Reminds me of the days before the internet. I used to have to purchase VHS tapes from record fairs and ads in Record Collector to obtain live/TV footage.

Picked up latest issue of Q today and feature on New Order's albums is in it in the "reissue" section.Anyway, hadn't seen the photo they used before but it looks like the same photo session of that old 80s one where they are all trying to sit on the bicycle in the studio.

Not had a chance to listen to that soundcloud yet but i have watched the series of 8 episodes of Stranger Things on Netflix over the last 3 or 4 days.Atmosphere is in episode 4 in a scene after the lad whose disappearance kicks off the series is found dead ( well he's not actually dead as it turns out but won't spoil too much) and Elegia is in scenes in episode 5 where the kid who has "died" is his funeral and people are preparing for it.

It's a pretty watchable series.Well i ended up watching all of it so it must be good.It rips off pretty much every horror movie/tv series and Stephen King/John Carpenter et al ever made and there's lots of that old cliche American teenagers on bikes racing around trying to defeat a monster from another dimension type stuff but the kid actors and most of the adult ones are really good except for Winona Ryder who is shit in this.The series is set in 1983 and some of the scenes look like they could even have been filmed back then they're that authentic.Elegia fits in with a lot of the music in the series thouigh reallly it was released til 2 years after the series is set.

I've listened to the mix a few times now.Yep i really like it, been great on the headphones when out and about and journey to work.This week i've been having to walk for half an hour each morning to my work colleague's house to cadge a lift with him to work and we start pretty early so i'm walking to his house at 5am when it's still a bit dark so the Stranger Things tunes on DJ Yoda's mix have been kind of the perfect soundtrack for those early dark/twilight hours walking the streets! Cool how the mix starts with the clip from series with the line "I've made you a mixtape"


And yeah what is that Elegia tune that cuts in after NO's Elegia?Confused

I bought an 80's 12" extended mixes compilation album on Friday. It features mixes from various artists including NO with The Perfect Kiss. One of the other artists featured is Swing Out, Sister with Surrender. Perhaps ironically, here is SOS with their version of "The Perfect Kiss". Swing Out, Sister are still going strong and seem to have been quite prolific over the years. Having formerly played in a brass band, I have a soft spot for any good group with a brass section.Smile

Speaking of such things, and indeed speaking of Elegia above, I was surprised to spot the full 17 minute version of Elegia on this compilation.
As no one seems to know about the other version of Elegia in the Stranger Things mixtape, I'm going to assume it's a cover by the incidental music creators, Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein. There is a volume 1 and 2 compilation of original music from Stranger Things by them but Elegia isn't on there (I guess 'cause it's not their original music).

Does anyone else here read the UK's Guardian newspaper on a Saturday? There's always so much interesting stuff to read, I struggle to keep up (no I am not being paid to say that).
Anyway I'm catching up on the Weekend magazine of 17th September and on page 52 is a Mr S Morris.
The Secrets of Star Drummers.
FYI: Stephen doesn't share any new secrets; just moans about Hannett: "Martin wanted the bass drum in the ballroom, and the snare drum in a tin can".

Thieves Like Us pumping out of someone's car stereo near to where i live the other day.That is pretty unusual round my neck of woods.Almost unheard of round here to hear New Order on someone's car stereo.


And Thieves Like Us again, on BBC4's People's History Of Pop series last night. The episode invited members of the public to share their memories, memorabilia and experiences of being fans of bands and music from 1986-1996.A guy from Manchester was showing his Hacienda pass and photos & talking about memories of the Hac and all the famous autographs he had on his Hacienda pass.Start of that section had Thieves Like Us intro.


The programme also featured a few Depeche Mode fans and confirmed my long held suspicion that fans of that band are disturbingly weird and unhinged.
