Anatomy Of An Amazing News Story: Jamie Oliver + Joy Division = Gothpocalypse

What do you get when you combine celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and a backhoe? This sounds like the beginning of a raunchy riddle, but it’s totally real, and the answer may surprise you. Apparently Oliver was excavating a basement for a new restaurant in Manchester when he stumbled upon some legit buried treasure, including the predictable cache of guns, gold, and jewelry, and one not-so-predictable discovery: Joy Division and New Order master tapes. The total value of the basement loot has been estimated at £1.1 million (nearly 2 million dollars). Oliver has donated all of his findings to the treasury, so it’s unclear what will happen to the haul, but one result of this post-punk surprise is certain: Gothpocalypse! [NME]
