Joy Division - Birmingham (Aud) - 2 May 1980 - 192kb

A music producer genius was busy recording this concert.
As was someone else in the audience....

One of the tracks played at the concert is not included on the CD version.
But on this recording it is in its rightful place.

"TRANS - MISSION!!!" - somebody yells out after 5 songs or so.
However the band don't follow with Transmission, but something much finer!

  1. thank you so much for this rare gem!

  2. OMG - I can't believe I FINALLY get to hear the Joy Division original version of Ceremony with audible vocals by Ian who wrote the song. I think the fact that Ian wrote Ceremony and that New Order decided to record it as their first single points to a tantalizing idea: had Ian lived, something even more extraordinary than EITHER Joy Division or New Order would have emerged from Ian and the boys. Thank you SO much !!!

  3. Here's another tantalising idea - perhaps Curtis would have dumped Joy Division?!?

  4. I don't think Ian would have dumped Joy Division, the band was perfect... Literally.
