Artefact

Ticket

1986
Ticket stub from festival of the tenth summer gig at Gmex.
Great day. Pretty sure New Order, Smiths and probably others were filmed during their sets, but i've never seen any footage. Anyone know of any out there?

I remember speaking to someone whose girlfriend was filming it for the university and they had some semi-pro kit but otherwise not. If there was anyone else it might have been the bands or labels. I think Pete from Doublevision was there to film the Cabs but the Cabs didn't turn up.

Footage exists, though not for The Smiths who insisted they were not filmed, in what was probably a pointless anti-Factory statement by Morrissey.

There is an audio bootleg of The Smiths' set, which is really good, taken from the Piccadilly Radio broadcast, so surely someone taped the New Order set as well? I've posted a rather dodgy photo of the stage if you're interested, and a photo of my rather faded T-shirt.
