Does anyone know where I can find video footage of Atmosphere with the chimes being used by Bernard in the studio? I told my son about it and he wanted to see it. I was quite sure I'd seen it somewhere, but cant seem to find it anymore (looked in the Grant Gee Documentary, Joy Division_Under Review_2ch.avi, Control movie) and searched youtube but no results.

Closest I came is the Grant Gee documentary where Martin Hannett's AMS box is explained.

Any help much appreciated.

"video footage of Atmosphere with the chimes being used by Bernard in the studio"

Please explain further. Video footage? In the studio in 1979? The promo video? There is no footage of JD in the studio in '79 recording this...

Also, FYI, according to Steve in Simon Reynold's 'Totally Wired' book they actually used a tambourine plus effects to get that sound, despite what some people would have you believe.

From the book...

Quote:
That is a tambourine, balanced on a pair of scissors and put through effects. There was an AMS delay - it fed back into itself - and then it's just me going 'ping'. And the rest of it is a box going round and round on a delay.

Maybe it's just my silly old mind playing tricks on me .  I "thought" I could remember seeing studio footage of Atmosphere. W.r.t. the chimes: see this link:

I think I can hear the chimes at 1minute13sec just preceeding the tambourine....

Many thanks for all the help already...

Perhaps it's a bonus feature on the Leigh Festival dvd? Along with footage of that melodica jam session involving all the bands of the festival?
