The thing that kept baffling me about the story was how they could screw up so badly and so consistently on just about every level, and still stay in business for more than a decade. I kept asking "where is the money coming from??" Apparently the answer is, New Order just kept spraying money at Tony Wilson from a firehose.
I was really, really disappointed that Cabaret Voltaire didn't make an appearance. (They played the opening night at Hacienda, to 75 people!)
