That would be a shame if you could not upload any New Order stash tapes here, anyway, you have our support and as some pointed out, we could take complete part in the hosting process to help you out.
Not surprising, coming from the guy who has spent the last X number of years squeezing every last quid from the legacy of Ian Curtis. My guess is that 99% of people who downloaded this stuff are hardcore fans who, across various formats, have already paid 10 times over.Sad times.
Another Opinion: If you did this officially, it could there without playing cat & mouse games. For the sake of comparison: the Rolling Stones have decided to release "official bootlegs" which in the US can be bought at $ 4.99 a show, totally legit and it is there for posterity. Imagine if Drew's magnificent work on all those NO/JD live shows could be brought forward in a similar way? (he should make some of the $ too), I certainly would not have a problem buying them for a "nominal sum", just saying...

"Not surprising, coming from the guy who has spent the last X number of years squeezing every last quid from the legacy of Ian Curtis."I don't think that's fair to Peter Hook at all. He's saying that people like AnalogLoyalist have big targets painted on their backs in the modern era, as the record labels scramble more and more to retain a foothold. And he suggested doing it for a NOMINAL sum -- seriously now, does anyone really object to the idea of paying a tiny amount for access to these great shows with their fine remastering? Or is the yawping, shrieking din for FREE CONTENT NOW simply too overwhelming at this point? I dunno. I wish this hadn't happened -- but I also don't think Hooky's position is illegitimate.
...so... hmm.......there are so many aspects of what Hooky wrote that frustrate the hell out of me.
