FLLR 034 - New Order Tapes (part 14)


Our next installment of Tape Filler includes three tranches of material, extracted from TDK and Maxell tapes.
- Pet Shop Boys remixes from 1984 (tracks 1-3)
- An incendiary Hüsker Dü radio broadcast from 1987 (tracks 4-10)
- Audio from New Order's 1986 "The Tube" broadcast (tracks 11-13)

Here's a needledrop of the first PSB remix....a mashup of "West End Girls" with Corey Hart's "Sunglasses At Night"...

Also found a 7" edit, I've made the link smaller to simulate the actual size of a seven inch platter compared to its 12" big brother.

What's interesting is that "One More Chance" is a remix that I wasn't initially able to find on YT, it's actually about 4:38 in length (the remaining seven seconds is just silence).  This is definitely *not* the original Bobby Orlando mix, which can be heard below.

Update:  It's been spotted.  Thanks Robert!  Discogs used to have a beta feature where you could easily compare different timings of a particular track to try to ID remixes, but it's no longer enabled...

As for the last track, here's an even more extended remix (13:03 vs 8:28) which I guess incorporates 2-3 additional songs besides the So Hard / The End Of The World / It's Alright medley that was included on my tape, those being Always On My Mind/In My House and Left To My Devices.

Next up, Hüsker Dü.   It looks like the only ones currently online are these ("Could You Be The One" and "Girl Who Lives On Heaven Hill", from 'jat13'.  I'd say this version is slightly better quality than mine, since I had to de-hiss mine a bit.

Beyond the ones I've shared, there's also video of "Ice Cold Ice" and "Eight Miles High" was shared by YouTube account 'Rolling Rockvideos'.

"Standing In The Rain", "Back From Somewhere", and "You're A Soldier" don't seem to be online, and I'm not sure if the full broadcast exists.  If I find out more, I will update this space...

As for New Order, Darren Rigby-O'Neill just upped the cleanest copy of the Tube '86 performance (dating from early July 2021), at least with respect to "State Of The Nation", that I've seen to date:

For "Broken Promises", as it was originally titled until the plural fell off for the Brotherhood release, you can go here, which I've cued up to the start of that track.
