Nick Stewart was there:
"I donít remember too much about it to be honest.  The JD set was not long that I do recall. Isolation Transmission and New Dawn Fades were certainly in the set. Sound was poor. It was packed and I think Paul Morley was there"

Note: It's unlikely Isolation was performed as Paul Morley's review of the University of London Union gig February 1980 says the song had been written "only days before".
