Rob Gretton's scribblings include several alternative names for New Order
‘1 Top Class Manager’ has been compiled by Gretton‘s widow Lesley Gilbert.
The book condenses over 20 notebooks written by Gretton between 1978 and 1980 into one volume. It includes posters, diary entries, letters, to-do lists and studio notes.
Another appears to be a list of new band names for Joy Division to use after the death of frontman Ian Curtis.
Although the band eventually settled on renaming themselves New Order, Man Ray is highlighted in the list, which also includes Radical Jesuits, Arab Legion and Sons Of God.
