New Order played their first gig as a three piece in July 1980 at The Beach Club, which was at Oozits on Newgate Street, Shudehill. It is thought that the band were drafted in at short notice to replace The Names, who were supporting A Certain Ratio. Here, in this excerpt from October 1980, Rob appears to be making a note to ask Tony Wilson about a film, which may or may not relate to that gig.
