Rolling Stone published a 40th anniversary feature on the iconic CBS series Dallas. The piece includes a blurb about New Order discovering ecstasy, which the mag nicked from Bernard Sumner's autobiography Chapter and Verse. Check out the blurb below and read the full tribute to Dallas here via Joy Division/New Order.

"How hard did the cast party? New Order's Bernard Sumner gave a hint in his memoir Chapter and Verse, explaining how the band discovered the drug that inspired their 1982 song "Ecstasy." "We'd played a gig in Dallas, gone out to a club afterwards and got talking to the promoters. These were the days when Dallas was massive on the television and they told us that some members of the cast and crew would go to this club 'where they liked to drop an E.'" To wit: New Order had to ask what an "E" was. In other words, the Ewings helped introduce English rock stars to Ecstasy – talk about a major contribution to music history (if a not-entirely-positive one). Before Ibiza, there was Southfork."
