Hello.

Back in the day, I used to have a whole host of radio interviews, audio documentaries on the band etc. recorded onto cassette, in varying quality. Most of these are sadly now lost to time.

It would therefore be nice to try and get digital copies of this stuff.
So this is a general shout-out to any other fans that have any radio stuff on mp3 etc.

I’m especially looking for stuff from the 80s / 90s, but would still be very interested in anything from the 00s and beyond.
Am also interested in similar material of any of the splinter bands too (Revenge, Electronic etc.), along with other related interviews (Wilson, Saville, Hannett, Factory etc.).

If anyone can help me out, that would be great. PM me if you can or post here.

Many thanks.

I recorded the entire November 1998 John Peel show which had the full line-up (including Gillian) chatting with John, choosing influential tracks (Sex Pistols, etc) and we also got to hear the 5 x new Peel Session tracks which were much sought after at the time. They weren't commercially released until 6 years later on the In Session compilation, which itself has become bit of a rarity. I remember editing together a transfer of the Peel Session tracks, which was of a pretty respectable quality at the time, but didn't bother with the interview segments, a missed opportunity. When In Session came out it took me ages to get used to the mastering as I'd been listening to my own transfer for years up to that point (!)

I purposely used 2 x Metal-standard tapes at the time which were really good quality... I still have them somewhere but alas no tape deck. Finding and digitising them into a 2 x CDr album has long been a goal of mine.

It might even be worth the purchase of a reasonable tape deck alone.

I wish there was a service the BBC offered where you could email in, pay a reasonable fee, and have them send you a copy of what is in the archives. Those transcription discs of live gigs have forever gone for silly money.

Hmm I have attempted three different versions of a reply but each time the Forum tells me "this message was rejected because it was spam".
WTF??? Black eye
So, short version: there used to be a well known chain of camera shops that could do this conversion for you. There are other places online that still can.
Might be less hassle than getting a tape deck.
I'll send you the original version of my post by PM (if the forum will let me), considering I went to the trouble of doing links and stuff...

^ Yep, I’ve had that “spam” problem sometimes. Usually when I’ve edited a post when I click submit again it thinks I’m a spammer.

Been hundreds of radio things over the years . I remember obtaining some early 80s ones on cassette through NME back page ads, stuff like a Manchester Piccadilly radio one from 83/84 and one or two others. Long lost now.

I remember listening to a two
part Radio 1 thing around early 88 , it was on over a couple of Saturday afternoon 1 hour slots and was Radio 1 catching the 87/88 popularity of New Order with the success of Substance. It was more of a documentary than interviews. I recorded all the session songs from the Peel Dec 98 thing. But as for digital versions that I still have, the one that first springs to mind is one I have of Bernard being interviewed by Jo Whiley on Radio 1 in about November 98, or at least for years I had it titled as Jo Whiley interview with Bernard but I think some years ago I listened to it and it didn’t sound like Jo Whiley so I’m not sure but I am sure I have it as an mp3. I could have sworn I heard it live when it was first broadcast. When I get time I’ll look it up in my files and see what else I have.

I remember talking to a friend of mine at the Ally Pally gig on New Year's Eve 1998 and he informed me of the session, which had been played a few days before.
I remember cursing that I had missed it. But I think I got a copy not long after. Quite a decent session. Wish I'd heard the interview. Would be good to hear it now.

Weirdly, I didn't buy the 'In Session' CD when it came out. I was going through a (thankfully short) period of my life where the band weren't really doing it for me (had been turned off by the constant 'best of's and remixes). Then, when I duly tried to purchase the CD, it was going for silly money. Got a CD rip which lasted me until three years or so ago, until I managed to pick up the original CD for about £25.

Yeah - I think there are probably hundreds of radio interviews and documentaries out there. There probably aren't too many from the 1980-1992 period though, due to their 'limited press coverage' stance at the time. It only got a bit daft from 1993 onwards. Same with the TV appearances. New Order interviews were a real treat back in the day. These days, it seems anyone can film a brief interview and stick it online. Not that I'm complaining though - always good to see new stuff.

I'm thinking that there shouldn't be too much out there in regards to 80s radio stuff so, in theory, it should be relatively easy to collect. Providing it's in the hands of fans generous enough to give me copies, of course. Wink

Still, I'm interested in absolutely anything out there, folks; not just the early stuff.

That 1988 two-parter sounds great. It also sounds familiar. I may well have had that some years ago (sadly no more).

I'd certainly be interested in the 'Jo Whiley' thing and anything else you've got. Thanks!

I also taped the interview - session from December 1998, but I jumped the songs they chose. No one cares that I did this, not even me. The best thing about the sesh was it was the first 'proper' release of the Perfecto True Faith mash-up, but the Novelty Has Gone (see what etc). It was broadcast slap bang between the two Temptation 'events'.
I also taped the hour-long 93 Radio One doc 'How Does It Feeel?' (with John Peel again, featuring all the band plus Wilson), but my parents must've thrown it outa the house. They threw ME out of the fucking house, why the fuck would they keep hold of a New Order doc?
PS One for the trainspotters http://peel.wikia.com/wiki/New_Order - when Peelie first played Blue Monday, he said it was quite boring. He had a point.

Found a few mp3s of interviews i have.The 'Jo Whiley' one is definitely not Jo Whiley but it's labelled Radio 1 interview 11/98.Don't know who the lady interviewing Bernard is and i doubt it was even Radio 1.Bernard did get interviewed by Jo Whiley on Radio 1 around that time because i remember listening to it at work and she played World In Motion from Reading 98 but the mp3 i have i'm now pretty sure isn't it.The one i have is about 17 minutes.I also have a 'Republic' interview, not the May 93 Radio 1 Evening Session one though.Also have an Ian Curtis interview form 1980 , Radio Blackburn or something .Obtained that one a fair few years back now.

Before anyone goes to the time and trouble of ripping old media, I have the following in perfect MP3 form.

- The entire 1 hour Peel Interview from 1998 mentioned above
- Something called "How Does it Feel" from 1993 - probably the Jo Whiley one?
- A 2-parter from 1988 called "Substance"

If someone creates a share somewhere I can upload them...

.


That was the one I meant - John Peel interviewing the four plus Tony Wilson on - THAT'S RIGHT - the 'history'. My favourite parts (after Mel C's shoulderblades) are 'Electronic have been knocking out the hits' (ah yes, they never stop), and nerdy Steve saying 'We've made an album and we hope it won't be like the Sphynx or the Pyramids: something people only discover after we're dead.' Still, nowhere near the NOStory cringe factor.

The Jo Whiley one i'm thinking of was from 1998 because Bernard was talking about how they had got back together and had done Reading 98 a few months before and Jo Whiley played World In Motion from Reading 98.I remember the 1988 Substance 2 parter on Radio 1, John Peel talked about how awesome the February 1981 Heaven gig was.The December 1998 Peel interview was on the night December 30th and was sandwiched between the night of the Manchester Evening News Arena gig Dec 29th and the Alexandra Palace gig December 31st 1998.I recall Gillian selecting Candi Staton You've Got The Love as one of her favourite records.

Many thanks for the offer of a share. I'd love these.
I'm not really sure how to create a 'share' though. If anyone is familiar with how to set something like that up, could they possibly help out?

Alternatively, I usually use WeTransfer.com to share files. The sender adds the email of the person they're sending the files to and, once the files are uploaded, a link to the files is then sent to the recipient. Never had an issue with them. If all else fails, perhaps this might be a good way to get the files to me and others.

Thanks again for the offer; it would be great to hear these.

I noticed this a few days ago. Pretty good interview. Thanks for the upload Fotz.

BTW, I don't know why but I can't seem to 'multi-quote' on my posts. Not sure why. So, apologies for me having to split my posts. I guess it bumps my post count though! Wink

Just been listening to the interview labelled 11/03/83.
It appears to be the Radio 1 ‘Rock On’ broadcast from 12/03/83, which I already had a copy of.

However, what’s odd about your version is that it differs from the broadcast version. It contains various bits that weren’t broadcast, including bits where they talk about having to ‘redo’ certain sections of the interview. In other words, it’s the rough edits.
There’s some great little bits where the interviewer (Richard Skinner?) makes various ‘off air’ comments asking whether the band were deliberately sending him up etc. Nice.

So, this is very intriguing. Can I ask how you got hold of this little gem?

Hey - it's never too late. Perhaps you guys could reconvene and do some other NO/JD related projects. Restoring interviews or other such stuff.

Just listening to the 'Substance' documentary now and you are right; it is excellent. Great candid interviews, really good choice of songs played etc.

Might be nice for classic interviews of this nature to get heard by more fans; the Recycle blog had an impressive following and would be a good vessel for stuff like this.
