New Order, Joy Division Masters Found Under Manchester Restaurant

    It’s about that time of the day, so here’s your weird story: Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver bought an old bank in Manchester, England and has been renovating it with the intent of turning the building into a new restaurant. Recently, workers doing construction found the basement to be full of safety deposit boxes, the contents of which have turned out to be worth £1.1 million, or roughly 1.7 million US dollars.

    Some boxes dated back to 1935 and, according to a source speaking with The Sun, a gun was found in one of them. But why am I writing about this? Well, after the original owners couldn’t be traced, drills were used to open the boxes, which contained not only gold and jewelry, but master tapes of New Order and Joy Division. Wait, what? [HuffPo]
