Hey dmxi, whatever happened with this?  I saw the YouTube post and the guy even said what pub he hangs out at, "I'm generally found at The Hillary Step on Upper Chorlton Road on Sunday nights where I book the bands in."

ffs!  Someone that lives over there needs to get on the stick and go interview that Bob Jones gentleman, pronto!!!

BTW when is someone going to interview Duncan Haysom??? [confused]

Please mention to him these questions:

1. Was the Plan K footage really shown at the Heaven club in 1981?

2. Do you have the full footage?

here's the dialog:
I've very little to add! It was a great performance and I'm pleased we captured it but there's not a lot else to tell. Personally I preferred Buzzcocks, who we'd gone to record - happy songs! All the best.

To bob jones Do you have any knowledge about the missing footage which they tried to present in front of a selected crowd a couple of years ago but failed to screen it as council workers accidentally cut the power.do you know of such footage? Is there more missing compared to the official released 'here are the young men' video? Any snippet of knowledge is highly appreciated & more importantly would you give an official interview for our joy division website? Best wishes. ......dominic

We only did the one recording, I think this was the first night. I must get in touch with Richard Boon to see if he has the Buzzcocks tape. The 'Here Are The Young Men' VHS that IKON put out uses stop frame, if I remember rightly, and is full of garish colour - generated by the primitive editing equipment available in the not so distant past. As far as lighting at the Apollo goes, it was certainly a bit dark and minimal! As I said before, that's pretty much all I know, I didn't, and still don't know any members of the band apart from seeing Hooky a couple of times in the Kings Arms in Salford. New Order did a benefit at The Squat, next door to M/c Uni Student's Union after Ian died, they'd done one gig in London prior to that, the only time I saw any of them after the Apollo gig, we didn't record it. I'd seen them at what became The Factory aka The PSV or Russell Club, featured in All Night party people. If anyone wants to interview me that's fine but I have no more to add.
 
so,i know julian done an excellent article on "our's truly" in yorkshire 
http://www.joydiv.org/yorkshire.htm
which would be perfect to include an in depth interview with this kind gentleman.
i will PM julian & find out if he 's interested in investigating.....

Dominic,

I don't understand why you (and Wallflower) are asking Bob Jones about the Plan K footage when he had nothing to do with that.  I was not aware that the aborted screening had any of Bob's footage from the Apollo.  I thought it was only the Plan K footage and that was it.

Actually, it was intended that the Apollo footage was to be shown that day after Plan K. The power cut put paid to that.

On a whim I tweeted Jon Savage earlier to see if he knew of any possibility of the Plan K footage being shown again following its truncated screening in 2010. He replied that he is trying to arrange for it to be shown as part of the Manchester Festival later this summer. Which would be great!

And almost a year later, STILL no word on this footage ever being aired again.  SOMEONE has it in their possession ... why is it so bloody hard to get a screening sorted?!

There was a screening, RiotNrrrd, I believe in 2010. Almost full concert was shown but was cut down due to the electricity problems and, I believe, Stephen said that no further screenings are planned. You can find the audio recording on the Youtube tho.

Grehem I said "aired again".  I'm well aware of the aborted 2010 attempt, being a long-time denizen of this site.

My point being, SOMEONE has the footage ... how hard can it be to sort out a screening of some film footage.  And that "electrical cut off" still smells suspicious after all these years ... immaculate timing!  "Oh let's cut the mains right across the street from that venue where they're showing a film".
