16 NEW ORDER, Chippenham Golddiggers, Thursday 23 August 1984

Due to a traffic delay, the support band Blue In Heaven didn't arrive until after New Order had played - but by then most people, including ourselves, had left!

So after an interminable wait in the enthusiastic crush down the front, New Order were the first band on, about 11 pm. They played a disappointingly messy and truncated set of largely unfamiliar synth based dancey material; as a footnote, I bumped into New Order vocalist Bernard Albrecht a few months later in London and expressed my disappointment! He took it well...

  1. I was there - I too remember that wait because of the support band. It's still weird to think that New Order played in Chippenham ! Jeremy
