The scary thing is when I did my set in Texas everyone was excited. The show was great. I was done and the next DJ put something on vinyl and the difference! The quality!!
Sarcasm is a Manchester trait.
It's quite ironic I suppose, it's that thing about being in a group when you all start out as friends and then invariably end up hating each other. So I just thought they needed telling really, in case they were labouring under the apprehension that they were still friends.
America stopped making vinyl and phased out the single but Germany held out and refused. Warner's never phased out vinyl in Germany. Now America imports it!

I think that you have to bear in mind that music is about escape, and it's not unreasonable to think the music business would be based around escapism.
Democracy for us tends to be has to do with who shouts the loudest!
It's the same misconception I used to have. I meet people and think they're millionaires and they're not.
The chemistry involved made everything Factory did quite special.
I'd rather have ten people who are mad for it than ten thousand who aren't.
Nobody is the same. If we were all the same it would be bloody boring.

They amaze me most of those remixes. Some of them are crap. But every time I complain, someone comes up and says they are for a different market that you don't understand. Some of the New Order ones are really great, though.
Actually when we stopped New Order I was busier than ever. The only gaps have been while we've been writing.
That's it really, at the moment I wouldn't say I was influenced by any one thing in particular.
