I saw and very nearly bought the bottom 2 discs when browsing the shelves of HMV & Virgin/Ourprice on Market Street (Manchester) back in the day, many many moons ago. Sadly, I didn't have that much disposable, so I always opted to buy some new 12" remixes etc instead. I'm very much looking forward to listening to these now, though. Thanks once again to -1 for making this available - your efforts are always much appreciated!

Many thanks to negative1 for these. Was good to hear them again after all these years. Hadn't heard them since my turntable died over 20 years ago.

Some general comments:

7" & 12" (Interviewed 1984)
This appears to be different parts of the same interview and finds Hooky in typical '80s prickly mode'. He doesn't give the interviewer many 'ins' and the poor guy seems to be floundering a little. His line of questioning is to 'state a point, have Hooky disagree with him on it, change opinion to match Hooky'. It's funny to hear the interviewer say that he was trying to avoid the typical Joy Division questions, but then goes on to ask 'was it difficult to carry on as New Order and move away from the JD sound' or similar.

Although I hadn't heard quite a bit of this interview for years, a few bits of it also appear on the following two CDs:



I'm not sure if there's any new bits to the interview included on these CDs, but the bits that are on them play exactly the same on both.

The interview segments on both the vinyl and CDs seem to be cut all over the place, with some bits appearing to be out of order (i.e. the interviewer says 'finally', as if to round off the interview, then follows on with a number of further questions).

The above two CDs also contain bits of the interview with Steve and Gillian below. In the case of the Newspeak CD, only about 40 seconds worth. The Conversation CD has a lot more (about 25 minutes worth.

12" (Baktabak)
This is an interview with Steve and, to a lesser extent, Gillian circa May 1985 (on the Australian tour). IMHO, it's a much more interesting interview, with both band members in a very relaxed, friendly manner (typical of the pair of them).
This interview plays exactly the same as the following CD:


If anyone wants copies of the three CDs I mentioned, for comparison purposes, just PM me and I'll wing them over.

Anyway, once again, thanks to negative1. It was good to hear these and is much appreciated.

I bought the first one at Reading 1993. Nothing of interest - Hooky's being a wanker and the interviewer's being wanky.
The other one has photos of BS and Hooky but interviews The Other Two. They share such gems as 'We did a video' (TPK) and 'If people come to concerts we think they could get some enjoyment out of it'. Stunning.

I remember owning the Newspeak CD back in the 90s. Terrible sound, but, hey, back in the days, it felt so dammmnnnn extraordinary having this sh*t.
