I was listening to FageOner's upgrade of the Leigh Open Air Festival bootleg, and particularly enjoyed hearing Ian's chatter before and after Leaders of Men. I know he was never that talkative during gigs, but I can think of a few instances of him speaking between songs (the Preston show, for example). Are there any other moments like this?

There's the famous quote at the end of "Sister Ray" on "Still" from The Moonlight Club of course - "Should hear our version of Louie, Louie - wow"

Preceding "Leaders Of Men" at the second Nashville Ballroom show - "This one's an older one"

After the Love Will Tear Us Apart without synth from, I think, 2nd April - The Moonlight Club, Ian says that they didn't "practise for a while" and somebody from the crowd goes "You always say that" which amuses Ian greatly and he chuckle.

On that recording, after Ian says "Sorry we've not rehearsed for a while", if you listen hard you can hear Bernard say "It's the first time I've played it all on guitar". At least that's what I think he says!

Another amusing incident is (I think) on 9 Nov 79, at the very start of the audience recording, a woman in the crowd is shouting up at the band as they come onstage "You're Joy Division, aren't you?....Are you Joy Division?" Peter or Ian gives his standard greeting "Good Evening, We're Joy Division", and she shouts back "I know!"

At 1980-04-02 Moonlight, when Ian says "You can tell we haven't rehearsed for a while," I am pretty sure Bernard says something like "I think it sounds better on guitar," referring to LWTUA, making Ian chuckle.

At 1979-07-13 Factory, Ian introduces "She's Lost Control" by saying "There are some things you'll never understand. 'She's Lost Control.'" and "Novelty" by saying "This one's a very old song. Uh, about two years old. Some of you might remember it."

Really, except for Preston and Moonlight, there are few cases where the band are particularly talkative throughout the whole gig. Just little moments. Fage, maybe you should make a compilation of all these little moments?
