'I Remember Nothing - A Joy Division Video Night' 
Thanks to Ian for the following details of the video night in Blackburn:

After an initial introduction, Tony Wilson came in with his dog (a Weimaraner like the one in the Blue Monday 88 video) to say a few words. There then followed the first part was shown of the The Joy Division Film by Malcolm Whitehead (Fac 9). Other highlights included outtakes and actual Eindhoven / Manchester footage from 'Here Are The Young Men', live Granada TV clips, various interviews including ones with Ian Curtis, Martin Hannett and Rob Gretton, live performance from Plan K where Hook and Sumner swapped guitars and played Atrocity Exhibition, Bowdon Vale footage. As final bonuses there was the 7-minute short 'She's Lost Control' and the 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' promo.

Also for sale was the 'She's Lost Control' footage which came as a dvd in a seethrough case priced 5 pounds.

Ian says: "The night was great. A few sound problems where a wire came loose but apart from that a great night with lots of rare footage and interesting interviews. Would love to see this footage released officially." Here, here.
