The Mission guitarist Simon Hinkler on playing Bearded Theory

GOTH rockers the Mission say fans can expect to hear all the old favourites when they make a rare live appearance at the Bearded Theory music festival next week.

The band are headlining the main stage on Friday night and guitarist Simon Hinkler said: "There are some songs that we have to do as people would be disappointed if we didn't.

"We only got back together a few years ago with the original line-up and it was decided that we didn't want to play any of that material made after we had left the band.

"However, this time we're going to pull out a few of the better ones from when we weren't in the band.

"We also did an album a year or so ago so we'll play music from that."

The festival begins at Catton Hall in South Derbyshire on Thursday and Simon said he was excited about performing.

"It's always good to do festivals or any gigs," he said. "We're a pretty good festival band, we tend to go down well with the crowd.

"It's a gig, you do the best you can, you have a good time, and the audience have a good time. That's the whole point really, music is something fun to do with your life.

"I've said that to people over the years, if you not doing it for fun don't bother doing it."

The original line-up of The Mission reformed back in 2010 and Simon has loved being back in the band.

He said: "When you start out doing things, you're living on instinct – everything is sort of in the moment.

"The first few years we were together, it was insane the amount of things that we achieved in that time.

"Now we've got back together, everyone is confident in what everyone does.

"We get together three times a year for normally two or three weeks at a time.

"Back in the 80s we spent five years solid where we barely parted company and it becomes a bit strained.

"On the whole, the history is good and, when you've been through that together, there's a bond that you're always going to have."

Unlike the way they worked in the 80s, the band only spent a month on their latest album release.

"It's a lot simpler now a days than it used to be," said Simon.

"When we were signed, there was always someone breathing down your neck about the recording process and we'd tell them where to go.

"We didn't conform to what they wanted. We've got a reputation for being awkward with the record label!

"There is talk about doing another record and it will be something completely different."

It will be the band's first appearance at Bearded Theory and Simon did not appear completely sold on its name.

He said: "It's probably the most ridiculous festival name that I've ever heard. I almost find it embarrassing to say sometimes.

"When I say that we're playing Bearded Theory, everyone always says what?!"

But Simon is not averse to wearing some fuzz on his face.

"I tend to wear a beard most of the time just because I'm lazy!" he said.

"People are so ridiculously opposed to them. It's nonsense really! When it comes to beards, I think who cares?"

Ian Curtis’ House Might Get Turned Into a Museum
Posted by Subkulture

A Joy Division fan purchased the house in Macclesfield, England
By: James Grebey // May 21, 2015  http://www.spin.com/

 

The house where Ian Curtis lived until he committed suicide 35 years ago has been purchased by a Joy Division fan who plans on turning the Macclesfield, England home into a museum. The house at 77 Barton Street was put on the market in February, and though an earlier Indiegogo campaign to raise the money to purchase the property fell well short of its goals, NME reports that entrepreneur and musician Hadar Goldman has bought the house.

The 48-year-old spent a total of £190,000 (just under $300,000) on the two-bedroom, telling NME, “I felt as if I had to get involved, especially after hearing the plight of the fans who had failed to raise the necessary funds to buy the house owned and lived in by one of the musical heroes of my youth. Joy Division left a musical legacy which has influenced many of today’s bands.”

The plan now is for the home to become a museum. “This is not just about history and the past,” Goldman explained. “The Joy Division legacy deserves to be taken into the 21st century, to raise awareness into one of the most seminal bands in the history of contemporary music.”
