Following up on last week's "Nearly New Order" series of interviews (Day 1: Bernard Sumner, Day 2: Stephen Morris & Gillian Gilbert, Day 3: Peter Hook) that aired on Mark Radcliffe & Stuart Maconie's BBC 2 radio show, what did we learn?

Bernard Sumner & Stephen Morris's post-New Order "Bad Lieutenant" (or perhaps "The Unknown") project continues apace with Sumner currently writing lyrics.

Stephen Morris is selling his tank.

Peter Hook is on the 2nd draft of his forthcoming (Spring 2009) history of the Ha├žienda book. (Co-written with Ang Matthews.)

Peter Hook's long-awaited Freebass project (with Mani [Stone Roses/Primal Scream] and Andy Rourke [The Smiths]) continues to slowly evolve amidst recording & mixing (in between Hook's DJing gigs), with Hook previewing an excerpt of a work-in-progress Tim Burgess (The Charlatans) lead vocal track, and stating that Gary Briggs from MCR's Haven is now handling (many of?, some of?, a few of?) the Freebass vocals.
