Joy Division

4th September 1978: Band on the Wall, Manchester

   

The band receive good reviews in both Sounds and NME. Paul Morley writes for NME: "An audience will drift towards them (toward fashionable metal-industrial exploits), but Joy Division will need to fight the tendency to dilute brand new standards
to seduce a larger audience."
