New Order (and Joy Division) sites & books

Morning all.

Anyone recommend any New Order forums and any literature on the band? I have an idea and just want to do a bit of snooping

I have read the Mick Middle New Order/Factory Records book and Deborah Curtis's book about life with Ian but neither were that memorable IMHO. I will give you the Deb Curtis book but I think the Mick Middles one went to Oxfam. Will check tonight. Why are you snooping and grinning? Are you doing your own book?

A mate of mine went to the last Joy Division gig prior to whatsisface topping himself. I think it was at Birmingham University (just before I ended up there) so if you need anything connected with that, he might be able to help.

He's a Leeds fan too, so he's totally reliable and would never make total bobbins up.

This is a great docu with great interviews and insights from the band as well as two legends who are no longer with us: The Factory-Records-Fagin Tony Wilson and band manager Rob Gretton, the latter having the deadest-pan Manc sense of humour you will ever see. The film is funny, sad, insightful, and as classy as their record sleeves. Worth the money.

Got two on the go already Dock but making plans for a novel which will involve a New Order obsessive.  I've been wanting to write certain stories involving specific bands and I had an idea recently which I haven't fecked off as being too ridiculous yet.

He should write a book     I never saw Joy Div, I wasn't even aware of them until Curtis killed himself.  I was right in to New Order from the off though, just a shame their 12" singles were a bit steep for a dole boy like me

Incidentally, if anyone has any New Order vinyl that would look good in my collection, or CDs for that matter, please let me know

* thinking that 'from the off' sounds a bit dubious and cold *

You can have all my Joy Division and New order 12" records and albums including a 12" of Atmosphere by JD and NO Peel Sessions for nothing if you want. They take up too much room.

Got em anyway, nah nah

The Factory Records book that dock has pointed out to you is a real good one. I think that you will find loads of real good interesting facts that should help you out about both bands and members.

I too would give you my Joy Division LPs, 7" singles and 12 inchers if I wanted to. But I don't.

Whoa, be fair to me, I only mentioned New Order vinyl!







* would accept Joy Division though *

DON'T get that Paul Morley book Writing about Joy Division. How not to run a club by Peter Hook is quite amusing. There's also a semi official bio of St Bernard that's quite informative.

Read somewhere 3 or 4 years ago that DHM was doing a fully authorised Sumner biography. You heard owt?
Nyles O Cranium

No mate but thanks for mentioning it, I will make enquiries!
