A few more:

- Was the technique of recording each drum separately (and "ghost playing" the other drums) used on a lot of songs?
- Which song did he most enjoy playing live?
- Did IC ever do the dead fly dancing in rehearsals, or was it saved for gig time?
- Which songs were written starting with the drum part (Atrocity Exhibition or SLC for example)?

- Which studio recording is Steve the least happy with and why ? 
- How were the white noise sounding pulses at the start of 'The Eternal' created ? Presuming it to be one of the synths or possibly the in-built FX on Ian's Vox Phantom ? 
- Did Harry De mac ever get his 'come uppance' after hanging onto, and then charging for,  the live tapes after Ian died ?




vox phantom had fuzz, tremolo and

Thanks Porfido - but having watched the clip, I still dont hear the sound at the start of 'The Eternal' ?

I do hear that cool 'Repeater' effect ... as loved by the likes of the Spacemen 3 ... as well as all the great fuzz, tremolo, vibrato options etc

Maybe im wrong, but i have always presumed that the pulsing white noise sound at the start of The Eternal was generated on one of the synth's that Barney used.

If it was created via Ian's Vox Phantom, was some kind of early 'sample and hold' FX option available (ie. it created the sound without having to strum the strings ?) ... unlikely ??

Cheers - Pat

Some light at the end of the tunnel at long last!

I am looking forward to this release far more than both Bernard Sumner's and Peter Hook's offerings.  As much as I really enjoyed 'Unknown Pleasures - Inside Joy Division', I am hoping that Stephen Morris's book will add some detail to the Warsaw days, and also offer a different perspective on the band itself.

Fingers crossed that it is not delayed further.
