3 Apr Joy Division in Yorkshire - article added. About a year ago Julian, one of our messageboard regulars, started researching the Joy Division shows in his home county and today we're pleased to publish the fruits of his labour. Thanks Julian.

27 Mar Joy Division rehearsal recordings surface after 35 years:

Unheard Joy Division rehearsal outtakes have come to light nearly 35 years after they were first recorded and feature three versions of ĎA Means to an Endí and an instrumental track.

The first documented live performance of ĎA Means to an Endí was at Les Bains Douches, Paris in December 1979 and the only studio recording was made at Britannia Road studios in March 1980. The song was released on the Closer album in July 1980 some two months after Ian Curtisís death.

The 90 second instrumental is a historic find as it doesnít sound like an early incarnation of any later Joy Division song.

Unfortunately it is unlikely these Lo-fi recordings will feature on a future Joy Division release as the vocals are low in the mix and in all probability this was a cassette tape from a rehearsal session
