Graham Massey / 808 State - Paradise Regained 
The same Record Collector that has the AHW interview also has an extensive feature by Stuart Aitken on 808 State including interviews with Graham Massey, Gerald Simpson (A Guy Called Gerald) and Aphex Twin (whose current Analord series of releases under the guise AFX is well worth checking out). Gerald explains how the 808 remixes of Blue Monday and Confusion came about: "Jon Da Silva wanted a theme tune for his Hot night so me and Graham thought of doing a New Order tune, because they were the management of the club basically. It wasn't going to be used as a record or anything, he wasn't going to press it up, it was just basically to be played on his Hot night. So we did versions of Confusion and Blue Monday."
