2nd August 1979: YMCA, Prince Of Wales Conference Centre, Tottenham Court Road London
There are two recordings of this concert - one soundboard and one audience recording.
This was the first of the 4 night alternative rock festival at the Prince of Wales Conference Centre in London,
besides Joy Division also Teardrop Explodes and Echo And The Bunnymen played.
"If I had a flair for understatement, I could say that Joy Division were good too. The truth is they were
phenomenal - the most physical hard rock group I've seen since Gang Of Four. This Manchester band have been allowed
to grow at their own pace, uncramped by commercial pressures. The result is that they've created a totally distinctive,
cohesive sound over the last two years...They have the spirit and the feeling." - Adrian Thrills, NME review
11th August 1979.
