There’s also some chat on the slightly less-worse Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton:
All of which is preceded by a confessional real-life story from each of us just to get the ball rolling, kind of thing. Anyway, here you go:

Episode 31 sees us continue our delve into Joy Division and New Order, having read and watched just about everything available anywhere on these bands. In particular, we look at the (bizarre) love triangle between Ian, Debbie and Annik, together with the two main films covering this part of musical history (24 Hour Party People and Control).

Episode 30 sees us delve into our mutual love of New Order and Joy Division, and centres on the autobiographies of two of their founding members Peter Hook and Bernard Sumner.

Oh, and if Stephen and Gillian are reading this, PLEASE can you write a book as well? Thanks.
