FLLR 038 - New Order (side project) Tapes (part 17)

  Well, some of the filler isn't from New Order, per se , but since it's still New Order related I won't alter the numbering scheme. The first few tracks were from the heralded return of New Order, after a five year absence where all the members went onto their various side projects, with varying degrees of commercial and critical success.   I figure most of the members by then were running on fumes so it was not a moment too soon when they all got back together again.  Unfortunately, Gillian's newly born daughter had health issues so going into the 21st century, she ended up being having to suspend her participation, at least until Grace's condition improved and/or was managed (I don't know any intimate details) Regret 'TFI Friday' (27 Nov 1998) Temptation - Commonwealth Games, Albert Square 21 Sep 1998...with full intro, which I haven't seen before.  This was taped live from Malaysian TV.  New Order introduced...or at least royalty.  

FLLR 037 - New Order Tapes (part 16)

  This starts with 30 seconds of audience ambience, and 30 seconds of Sisters Of Mercy playing Emma (not the Hot Chocolate tune) There are at least 72(!) bands that have been called "The End" (in all conceivable genes, though most involve guitar music), so even my best google-fu has not yet uncovered which of these this was. I had though this was the Australian band  The End(16) , with Brett Myers, who went on to play in Died Pretty, but it's not. These songs are really good.  If anybody can shed more light on this, please get in touch! For Echo & The Bunnymen, these tracks provide the filler for this particular offering. Tracks from Radio City Music Hall  in NYC, during the 2nd North American leg of their tour that year.  The Bunnymen are up to nearly 1400 live performances, which is a lot, they've been around for nearly 45 years (give or take 1993-1996, and they took a break in 2000) Soul Kitchen (The Doors) / New Direction / Show Of Strength / Lips Like Sugar /
