Hello, I am trying to rebuild an interview archive, something like what Morrissey-Scans was. I have made considerable progress, but one of the things I am missing is a scan of the Hot Press 4 May 1984 interview with The Smiths. If anyone has this scan, or any of the following, it would be much appreciated.

4 May 1984 - Hot Press
24 March 1984 - Melody Maker
3 March 1984 - No. 1
4 February 1984 - NME

Do you know how to use the Internet Archive Wayback Machine? These scans for Hot Press 1984 were found on the old Morrissey-Scans site. Unfortunately, they are not very large.

What is your archive called?

I believe the second one was a Sandie Shaw themed interview (hence PJLM lists it as Something Always There To Remind Me).
You will find that here in amongst others and no concrete date other than Melody Maker circa March:

Third may be here (as the main site is now dead and archive sites may have missed a lot of images - glad I saved most.):

(The mag concerned had Bananarama on the front of the issue not Morrissey as PJLM asserts).

Yes, I have been using that to collect old high-res scans, along with using the urls that the original scans were hosted at.
I couldn't even get the page to open for the Hot Press scan, but thank you for the low-res colour images. I do in fact have a high-res scan, but it's in black and white. Perhaps I might try overlaying the colour and see how that looks... (otherwise I'm off to look for a copy to buy).

Haven't got a solid name for the archive site yet, and I'm still ironing out the design of the site. Right now I'm collecting all interviews in a folder hieracrchy on a backup hard drive, but I should have the site up soon.

Thank you for the links! I will give them a look. If not for the ones I listed, perhaps I can find other missing interviews.

Cool, definitely let me know when it is up and running!
