  1. Hi! Im a huge New Order (the band) fan and came across the old interview thread on here from back when the band were discussing Manchester United and their favorite teams. I had a few questions about it, that I hope you dont mind my asking. https://www.redcafe.net/threads/bernard-sumner-interview.72206/ What's this all about? Full interview itself is very funny, though. Barney going on about the team and funny stories. But whats Steve talking about? Sarcasm or meant nothing by it at all? I'm from the USA. So I dunno the history about the team or the players past (was he a bad player or was previously on a bad team?... hence the comment context?) The Iraqi part comes across very wrong. Dont wanna use the term racist, but comes across wrong and un-Steve-like. Kinda took me aback. But it also says it's from a translation, so maybe that got skewed...anyone have the original? Or was he saying that the macclesfield team was so bad that they could only afford an Iraqi player opposed to a Brazilian one or that the Iraqi guy helped make their crappy team better? Wondering if something got mixed up in translation. --- " "New Order and Football" Which teams do you support? Stephen Morris Macclesfield Town Bernard Sumner Manchester Utd. SM I'm from Macclesfield originally. It's a dirty little town south of Manchester. The team's in the Second Division, and frankly they're pretty bad… they even have an Iraqi player in the squad. Not that it means anything, mind you. Last year, they had a good spell. Four or five victories on the trot. The fans were chuffed. I can hear the stadium from my house, and they never stop singing. The media talked about us a bit then, and especially when the Iraqi arrived… But since then it's been calm. Life has gone back to normal in Macclesfield… sad." Hope someone can shed some light?
  2. If so..what are they like? And anyone else here a fan?

Any pics from it?? How did you get offered to play the party?!
  7. Checking back in to see if anyone's attended or will be attending the recent mini tour?
  8. Cool! Oh. And if anyone is interested..he announced on his instagram he's got some big announcement Tuesday. Probably a new album. Who knows?
  9. Anyone going to see Jarvis and pulps drummer Nick's new band perform at the save Sheffield trees event this week?
  10. That's cool! Ive heard about those shows. Jarvis did a segment about Max for it on his radio show. ---------- Post added 31-01-2018 at 19:57 ---------- What in the world?! Was it Hawley by any chance? That's a funny one. ---------- Post added 31-01-2018 at 20:00 ---------- Lucky! He might be mentioned on the Pulp Wikipedia history page, if he regularly played with them. Give it a look.
  11. Bump Bumping for anyone who might've not seen this yet. Or if any new cool stories since this thread. Also, looks like Jarvis is working on new material. New solo or future Pulp thing?
  12. Awww Jarvis is so cool. Sheffield Uni. You mean the Polytechnic school or whatever it was called? Or St. Martin's? Assuming he recognized you?
  13. Ooooohhh lol. Now I know lol. Thanks Kept seeing it referenced in other places, too. lol
  14. Well, he's mentioned it in interviews and was in the Eurostar ads few years ago. Everyone had a flip out over it, apparently. lol ---------- Post added 01-10-2017 at 16:29 ---------- Lol. he looks even younger minus the beard these days. ---------- Post added 01-10-2017 at 16:30 ---------- Cool! Thanks
  15. He goes between UK and France as his ex and teenage son live in Paris. So he visits his son all the time and is ambassador for Eurostar which goes between the two places and think he gets a pass. I think he still has a flat out in Paris and spends extended time there still, cos of his son. ---------- Post added 01-10-2017 at 09:21 ---------- lol
  16. If so, what's he like? Is he really as down to earth and cool as he seems? I've heard varying opinions. but most are all positive. I'm a big Pulp fan and was just told about this forum by a fellow Pulp fan and thought I'd ask. Probably the best place for Pulp and Jarvis stories. lol. I'm not from Sheffield but have some friends from there from online, and fan of the music from there. Pulp..ABC etc (Wasn't sure where to post this and posted it in another section as well...apologies if not proper spot, or this spot. )
