Dear friends,

Thank you for your enthusiasm and support. It's been a complete surprise that this project was allowed to live online for 3 years with no interference from the label or band. However, all good things must come to an end. The Recycle crew has made a joint decision to deactivate all the download links, effective immediately.

You may still be able to find the audio online, if you approach fan sites, newsgroups, or torrent sites. The entries for each single will remain here as a sort of Wiki about New Order and Joy Division's Factory-era singles.

We hope you enjoy the hours of work we put into this project. You'll be hearing from us again.

In the meantime, please continue to follow the excellent New Order Archives.

  1. It bears mentioning that no pressure was brought to bear on any of us to do this. It was just time.

  2. Appreciate such a great project and glad I archived it as well

  3. So long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, goodbye..... see you on the other side

  4. Your team has been more than generous. Thank you for the wondeful experience.

  5. Well, thank you very much for all your hard work, a couple of days ago I was asking you to reupload the stuff, but now I've recovered the project from a dvd back up, can't wait for your future projects!
    Greetings from Argentina.

  6. Thanks very much for giving us all these improved versions of so many well-loved tunes. We'll be watching for your next project.

  7. Much respect to you all for allowing us to hear the remasters you slaved over, it renewed my interest in a band I had let fall by the wayside after their split (NO obviously) and marvel in the JD songs I was too young to have even noticed let alone bought at the time. Big thanks to you all.

  8. How sad..anyway thanks for all your fantastic work

  9. Its really sad to see this go. Would anyone mind sending me the Love Will Tear Us Apart single? Can't seem to find it anywhere. My email is erikja31@gmail.com thanks.

  10. Also, I used to have everything on here but my HD died. It's a shame all of this incredible hard work has to go to waste. Someone should really upload a torrent of the collection sonewhere.
